Seeking advice for broken Viking Quilt Designer II

This is my first attempt to reupholster a beloved chair. I was sewing the last piece of the seat cover when the fabric got caught in the leg, broke the needle and then made a distressing sound before I was able to to take my foot of the peddle. I replaced the needle and was trying to adjust the leg when I realized that all functions that control the leg and needle,on the right side of the button panel are neither working or lighting up. I have also lost power to the peddle. I am wondering if this has happened to anyone else and what was the outcome. I realize I need to bring it to an expert, but part of me so badly wants to take it apart and try to fix it myself. If it were my mothers Viking, a simple but worthy machine, I would. This new technology is wonderful, but baffling when problems arise.

When that happened it probably threw the timing off!!I don't think i'd mess with something like the timing and i've been sewing over 50 years.Vikings are not cheap machines,and if you mess with it yourself it may void your warranty,besides most of the parts are sealed inside the machine and you can't get to them..

Did you maybe also sew over a pin??
