My MC 9000 LCD Panel light is very dim. My dealer charged me $25 and told me that it meant the machine was fixing to go out and that it would cost more to fix than the machine would be worth. I've been considering a new machine but if I can fix the old one .. ..
I found this online today:

LCD Backlight Panel to suit Janome MC 8000 & MC 5700

Janome no longer stock this item direct, but thank goodness there is an affordable replacement available...$149.99

Has anyone else replaced their Backlight panel? Do you think it might be a reasonable fix?

Not a sewing machine, but DH has replaced screens on the kids DS and helped a friend replace a lap top screen.

I woudl think it would be a similar thing to replace the screen on your sewing machine.

The backlight panel replacement is certainly a viable fix for these machines. They are notorious for faulty backlights, but exceptional in every other way. You should be able to find the replacement part at www.JanomeMemoryCraft.com
