I have a Designer 1 old machine the screen has gone blank

Customer Question

I have a Designer 1 old machine the screen has gone blank (black) no light. I was told this probably couldn't be repaired
JA: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?
Customer: Just happened. Machine was purchased in 1999
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: If we have too yes, I really like the machine, I planned to take it to the store but it is unlikely that they will repair, so I was told
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: Nope, was wondering if it could be repaired and if I purchased another what you might recommend. I would rather buy used, because it seem all the sewing machines are made in china now

Sadly I do not believe this is an issue that can be fixed. What is the price range you are looking for on your new unit?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Any online info, the company is not SVP and there is little published regarding this, no replacement parts and I could not find any indication of the life of this unit. Can it be repaired by a computer expert e.g. Geek

I can not be certain that a computer repair person would know what they are doing but of course its always worth a shot.
