You might want to try loading a firmware update onto the machine. If you have downloaded any of the updates for it in the past and saved them on your computer, try reloading the update as you would load an update normally.

I am having the same problem with my SE. It recently started doing that. Sometimes it would come on, sometimes not - just flicker. I haven't been able to get it to turn on for 2 weeks now. I earn $ with my machine, so I am really upset! No Vik dealer around to get it fixed either...

I purchased my designer se in 2006, and the frozen screen happened for the first time tonight as I was installing fonts on the machine. I did as into update mode and installed the latest update and it worked! Thanks so much. I thought I would have to pay a lot of money to have the problem resolved. I am a happy DSE owner.

Dongle for Designer 1 not recognized in XP or Vista

Drivers can be found on Husqvarna Viking website (search for VIP software) under "other links". Here's the direct link -

I don't think 3D/VIP is compatible with Vista but should be compatible with XP. Download and install latest driver per Husqvarna Viking website.

Good luck !!

Viking Designer SE missing the spool holder where can I buy one?

some authorized husqvarna viking dealers have websites where you can order the spool holder. Might just call an authorized dealer and purchase over the phone. Other 3rd party vendors are and may have these. Hope this helps.

Screen is frozen

Remove the embroidery unit and see will come on then. If not, it is probably the PC board. If it does come back on, it may be the embroidery unit or the connection. Take to authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer for service or have them send it to Husqvarna Viking (SVP) Technical Service Department for repair. A list of authorized Husqvarna Viking dealers can be found at the Husqvarna Viking website -

Good luck.

Sorry. Sounds like a dead LCD screen. It will have to be replaced by an authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer. Be sure it is an authorized dealer. Check the Husqvarna Viking website for dealers close to you. Http://
