Question about Husqvarna Viking 1

Reading the Embroidery D-cards

I worked with one D-card for emboidery with no problems at all. Now I have picked out some childrens selections and the machine does not want to sew. It reads the card, sets it up and when I hit the button to start, it moves, then instead of sewing, it blinks the size numbers again. I tried changing the size, I tried skipping the first color, I tried several options to get it started and it continually goes back to beeping and blinking the size.

Could it be a bad card? Other designs on the card worked fine.

Can you help me?

I went back to the place where I purchased it and they told me that it was the difference with the size of the hoops. I had to adjust the hoop size before it would accept the settings. That solved the problems. I thought when it was calibrated, that it automatically reset the hoop size - not so.

With embroidery card inserted into module, no motifs appear on the display screen.


Here are two other possibilities other than electrical problems with your Bernina. There are embroidery design cards that were made for the 200 & 730 that simply do not work in a 180. There is nothing marked on the card or the packaging that will tell you what model machine the card will work in. I sold a bunch of my design cards on eBay last winter and I tested all of them in both a 730 and a 180 before making the ad discription. I found that most of the design cards worked in the 180 & 730, but there were a few that only worked in the 730. So if your design card is one of those that won't work in a 180, that could be your problem.
You did not say if you have other design cards that do work or there is only one you tried. Possibly the card itself is bad.
A static shock to the card could possibly damage it.
So if you take your machine to a dealer to have it looked at, take your design card along.
The 180's memory for storing designs is located in the embroidery module, not the machine itself. If that memory is filled up with other designs this can cause a problem.
So your problem is most likely with the design card or with the embroidery module. Should you need to get another embroidery module, that module needs to be the same version number as your machine or it will not work. I have a. video posted on YouTube that shows you how to check the version number of your machine and module. That information is in my "Bernina check hours 165, 170, 180, 185" video. Put that in the YouTube search box and you will find my video. Plus I have other helpful Bernina videos posted.

Can I use a Bernina card 11253 in my Simplicity Embroidery Machine SE2


Unfortunately these cards are not interchangeable due to proprietary reading/writing software. This is used by the industry to prevent customers from changing brands once they've invested in a library of embroidery designs. However there is a company that makes it possible to transfer information from one type of card to another. I haven't used their product but it may be the solution to your problem.

How can I get rid of birdnesting? I am using


Bobbin thread for machine embroidery is recommended. It is usually 60 weight.

I had the same problem and after buying a new card, found out that you get that message if the pattern you are trying to transfer is too big. reduce the size of the pattern and see if that works

Pfaff 2124 can't select a design


Be sure your embroidery card is in the side slot BEFORE you turn on your machine. If you are using a pre-loaded card, you would hit the "hoop" button first. This will move the embroidery portion. Then punch in the design number. If you are using a personal card, make sure your design was actually transferred to the card. The instructions in the book are TERRIBLE!

Good luck!

You must use the card. If it were a newer model with an actual usb connection you could.
