I just got a Pfaff 4.0 machine, which is amazing. But the guy at the store taught me how to thread it and set me loose. Now that I am home I am struggleing with the display. I enter something wrong and can't figure out how to back out of the selection. I assumed the clear button would work, but it doesn"t clear my mis-entry. Help me! Or does anyone know a Pfaff specific message board?

I would be lost too. Have you thought about going back to the seller and getting a refresher? I'm sure they'd be happy to assist you...

I did find a place called Pfaff-Talk which might help you out:

http://www.pfaff-talk.com/

There is one form where they talk about Pfaff sewing machines:
http://www.pfaff-talk.net/chatroom/mvnforum/listthreads?forum=3

and one of the posts led me here for the Quilt Expressions 4.0:

Please keep us posted on your progress with this machine. And we'd love to see some of the project you produce on it!

Thank you so much, it really helps to have resources. I look forward to participating with this message board. I love to sew, mostly self-taught. Looking forward to doing bigger and better things.

I will be noce t have you join us, Sam...

and I was having a "bright idea" as I was driving to Toledo tonight.

Once my computer become nonreactive and I discovered that I couldn't turn it off or anything but if I removed the power supply (in this case, a battery), it shut down quite nicely. once I reinserted the battery it powered up perfectly did an internal scan and while it lost all the changes I was making when it froze, it was back to normal. Maybe if you didn't tell the machine to save the change you made and if you power down the machine, the touch screen will reset itself...

Of course, you may have already tried that but in case you hadn't...
