(C) 2009-2018 PLR Electronics
We at PLR Electronics will repair and refurbish your damaged Tajima circuit boards, down to the component level.
Why repair? Surely you can buy replacement circuit boards as easily as you do hoops?
Answer: They don’t want you to replace the electronics!
What a big hassle! Forget it!
Choose PLR Electronics… We can get it done!We at PLR Electronics have repaired and refurbished hundreds of Tajima circuit boards, here at our Dallas-Ft.Worth location, with our own personnel and own equipment. The boards go nowhere else, they don’t go overseas or some other repair place… they get diagnosed here, repaired here, with our stock of domestic and overseas electronic component parts, and are tested here in actual Tajima embroidery machines!
Again, you get your original circuit board worked on, restored to working condition, and mailed back to you! (As long as the amount of holes blown on the board are limited.)
Call us today, at (817)-223-3016, Monday through Thursday, 10AM-5PM Central time. We are in the process of upgrading our phones, so our sister company, The Embroidery Warehouse, will pick up the system in the off hours. Leave a message and we’ll get back at you!
Or, email us at sales @ plr electronics.com, for either email communications or a call-back (leave your number in this case). If you are in the local DFW area, you could even drop the whole machine off (for those smaller machines).

Our most popular board repairs:
Tajima TMFX Control Panel Repair, TMEX Repair
Tajima part number MX5101, with an incrementing numbering system for later versions.
This is a green or white control panel for the Tajima TMFX series of EMB machines. It consists of two boards inside of the chassis shell and a floppy disk drive, and perhaps a floppy drive adapter. The single-head version, the Tajima TMEX, will have an additional daughter card.
ERRORS include the Tajima Error code 3D6, blank or flickering LCD screen, general wackiness of characters on the display, some of the keys not working, Tajima floppy disk drive malfunction, mis-control of the color change motor, loss of control of the head cards.
If you suspect your TMFX or TMEX of electronic damage, then contact us today and we can help you.
Tajima USB Upgrade
Please also look at our Floppy to USB upgrade on the front page of PLR Electronics.com to upgrade your TMFX disk drive or TMEX disk drive up to a USB drive! We can offer either the 26-pin or 34-pin versions, please count the number of pins on your floppy drive and let us know when you order.
If you’re still running from a floppy disk drive, upgrade your Tajima to a USB flash drive, today! With the Tajima TMFX USB Upgrade!
Tajima TMFX Main Power Board Repair, Tajima S-Card, Tajima XY-Card Repair
Tajima part number for the main TMFX power supply card, marked X-POWER card; Sticker varies: CX5601, CX5601000000, CX560101, CX5601010000, CX560102, CX5601020000, CX560103, CX5601030000, CX560104, CX5601040000, etc. Also marked MP138, or MP138-1, MP138-1-A, etc. This card will have two very large black capacitors on it, along with three colored transformers, and two thick cables soldered directly to the board, and usually a green colored large socket.
Tajima part number for the TMFX main shaft, main motor driver card, marked X-DUB, referred to as the S-card; Sticker varies: CX5602, CX5602000000, CX560201, CX5602010000, CX560202, CX5602020000, CX560207, CX5602070000, etc. Also marked MP137, or MP137-1, or MP137-2, or MP137-1-A, etc. This card will resemble the XY boards, but will have a large colored socket, usually RED.
Tajima part number for the TMFX XY driver boards (quantity 2), marked X-DUA (in the spirit of their older DU-8, DU-10 driver series, DU-A would the TMFX version.) Sticker varies: CX5603, CX5603000000, CX5603010000, CX5603020000, CX5603030000, CX5603040000, etc. Also marked MP136, or MP136-1, or MP136-2. There is another version of the card labeled CX5607, CX5607000000, CX5607020000, etc, and it is marked MP136-3. Each card is usually tuned for power output for either the X or Y motor; the X-motors are usually run with a lot less power than the Y motor, and adjustments are not only the external dial switch for users, but settings and components on the circuit board itself.
NOTE: the XY cards for the TMFX2, TMFX-II type of machines use a different connector and circuit board design for their XY cards.
Tajima TMFX Card Location
There will be green lights for the XY and S-cards if their logic chips are getting power, but it is not that good an indicator for proper behavior.
Tajima TMFX Card problems
Be aware that there are ON-OFF switches on the front of the X-card, Y-card, and S-card, and a board turned off will stay orange at all times.
Tajima TME-DC Repair
Tajima IMM Repair, Tajima IMM1 Repair, Tajima IMM2 Repair
There are two circuit boards responsible for most errors which are the Tajima IDM and Tajima IMM and IMM2 cards, in the control panel and in the lower back of the machine, respectively. There are several versions of these boards for the TME-DC Type 1 (Green) and Type 2/Type 3 (White control panel). Other errors on the Tajima TMFD/TME-DC type of machine are due to defective brake boxes (attached to the main motor of the machine) and the main motor itself in the type2 and type3.
The Tajima TME-DC embroidery machine also has a floppy drive unit which can become defective over the years, and the DU-10 type of XY control boards.
ERRORS include the d-1.xx, n-1.xx errors, where the control panel becomes frozen. Other errors include the color change function acting erraticly, the main motor unable to function, the brake box not being able to stop the shaft at the proper location (or hold it), the main motor not functioning at all due to a E-002 error on the newer type brake box, and the mentioned floppy drive problems.
The d-1.00 error, d-1.01 error, d-1.06 error, can be about any number between 1.00 and 1.14.
The DU-10 cards, which control the Tajima’s X and Y-axis, can also degrade and be damaged; if there is jerky movement or the lights on each card are orange or red, please let us know.
Send your Tajima IMM card or IDM board in for repair today!
The USB Floppy upgrade for Tajima machines applies to the TME-DC model as well, both the green and white control panels, and we’ve sold many of them successfully. They only failures have been due to the control panel circuit board itself being damaged, and needing repair before any floppy drive, USB or not, can function.
If you have a Tajima TME-DC machine in need of a USB upgrade, contact us today!
Other Tajima Repairs
We’ve repaired circuitry on some other Tajima models as well, such as the TME-C series, the TMEF-600 series, the TMM series, the TME-HC series (a little similar to the DC) and more.
If you are experiencing problems with your older Tajima model, then we may be able to help.
Tajima Tape Reader TFD TFD-II to USB Upgrade!
We also have a USB upgrade for those older machines without a floppy disk drive; they only have the standard Tajima tape port.
We have sold hundreds of these units, so there is no need for your TFD type of tape reader anymore; upgrade to USB now!
