Futura CE-200 Stops in middle of design and says wrong hoop size

I have not had very many problems with my Singer Futura CE-200, but recently it will stop in the middle of a design and tell me to turn off the machine and turn it back on and put on the small hoop. The design is set up in the large hoop and I've tried everything to fix this problem. I even installed the update to try and fix the problem.

    I realize how to do the small hoop, but that's not the problem. This is a design done in a large hoop and formatted for a large hoop. It will start sewing out and stop in the middle and say wrong size hoop. I think it is something to do with my gears slipping. Thanks for trying to resolve my problem.

    Have design for large hoop in and stitching then stops and says to install the small hoop. Small hoop would not even fit in the position that the stitching is in - even if the design were small enough to fit that small hoop.

    Ready to dispose of machine.

Dear cjnations
Firstly we must all remember that the CE200 is a very particular machine and requires that you follow certain procedures in order for it to run smoothly. When using the small hoop, firstly you must make sure that the small hoop is selected on the screen by going to Tools, Select Hoop & clicking on small frame. Once this has been done and the design selected, you must then attach the small hoop before sending the design to the machine. If you attach the hoop after sending the design, the machine will give you the error message.
Good Luck!

Restarting a design in the middle but I turned my machine of , so it lost the uploaded design is there any way to restart a design in a specific point?

Start by removing the hoop from the machine (leave the fabric in the hoop!) and turning it on so the embroidery resets. Attach the hoop again and put the foot down. Load up the design and send it to the machine. Skip blocks until you get to the block you were on when you stopped. Send this block to the machine, but do not press the green "go" button. Press the "forward" (needle down) button to advance the design until you are a few stitches BEFORE your stopping point. Now you can press the "go" button.

Wont start in middle of hoop

Does the hoop moves when you turn on the machine? If so, then is when it doesn't go to the middle?
If so, turn on the machine without hoop. Carefully move the base (where you screw your hoop) back, I mean to the left. Sometimes this part moves and gets out of the place is supposed to be.
I hope it helps!

Where can i download a program to upgrade my Singer CE-200 to repeat the same design in the hoop Thank you

There is no update containing selectively "Repeat design" feature, there is an update to bring your software to the level that newer machine models have except some functions which cannot be supported by old firmware. You may ask you nearest Singer representative about Futura 2.5.

I recently bought a Singer Futura CE-200. I was using the embroidery function, but had to stop due to threading problems. When I went back to the computer a few days later my computer was shut down. I...

Wow, I finally get to have a solution.
1. Turn the machine off.
2. Remove the hoop.
3. CAREFULLY slide the bar on the embroidery unit to the left.
4. CAREFULLY slide the piece where the hoop attaches toward you.
5. Turn on the sewing machine. The machine should take the unit to "standby" with a click.
6. Attach the hoop with the power on.
7. Exit the Futura software.
8. Restart the software.
This "should" fix the problem, however, you may have to repeat this process more than once to get it to "stick".

Singer futura ce-200 problem, pattern mis-alignment

I have had similar problems in the past.
Do you hear a noise from the embroidery unit when the misalignment occurs ? If so, I suspect that your issue may be that you have some resistance under the hoop. Is there extra material that may be rubbing on the machine or catching somewhere. I have found that if I use some masking tape to keep all of the extra material from hitting any other parts of the machine or dragging under the edge of the hoop this error does not occur. FYI: I also stopped using the "optimize stitch speed" option at the same time. I believe that material dragging was causing the problem, but I still wonder about the stitch speed optimization feature.

My emroidery carrage reads the wrong hoop i have done every thing the manual says to do but it still tells me the small hoop is in when

When using either hoop you should place the frame on the carriage before you send across the design as there's a sensor in the carriage. Also when you send across the design and it asks you if you want the design optimised for speed you must always say YES. If this doesn't work then i suggest sending the machine to your local agent as the sensors may be faulty.

Embroidery centering

From my experience with this machine it is not a problem with the machine itself, but a software issue. Maybe your computer is not compatible. My first suggestion is to try to uninstall AND completely remove ALL programs related to Futura. Then restart your computer. Now re-install ONLY the main program. See if this works. Do not get frustrated, this machine usually takes awhile to figure out. Training is important for 100% success. Good luck!

Help problem with futura ce 200

Not much you can do about it because of the software's limitation. If you're serious about digitizing, get yourself a good software such as Brother PE Design.
