Question about Husqvarna Designer I
My machine has the light grey botton on the embriordery arm, I bought the 150 x150 hoop to use on my machine and it will not use it. the hoop will go on like my other hoops but machine will not sew wirh it,. and since i tred it my machine i have to keep clearing out the it brings up the box to clear usually i only have to do this when i first start the machine, but some times now i have to shut the machine off 5-6 times and then it will take my hoop.( now I am speaking of my other hoops not the 150 x150.
If you have a light gray button then you need to have the embroidery unit upgraded. The hoop will fit on the machine, but the machine can not recognize the hoop. The new hoop holder that needs to be installed will have a second sensor trigger allowing the machine to recognize more hoops. The original holder only has one trigger and can only recognize earlier hoops.
Contact an authorized Husqvarna repair center to have your embroidery unit upgraded.

This is a translation of instruction from the Service Manual for the Brother PR600, the twin of the Babylock EMP6. I will testify this works because I just did it to stop the insanity of my EMP6 thinking everything was a 5x7 hoop. If you look on page 4-36 of the free PR620 manual http://www.brodyrmaskiner.se/service/pr620/pr-620-service.pdf you will find the same exact set of instructions that are in the PR600 manual. So here are the exact steps to augment the manual's instructions.
1. Turn off the machine.
2. Press all three buttons (start, threader and cutter) and keep them pressed while turning the machine on.
3. Press MAIN BOARD TEST MODE.
4. Press A/D TEST.
5. Put the largest hoop on the machine (7 7/8 x 11 3/4).
6. Press LL.
7. Put the smallest hoop on the machine (1 1/2 x 2 3/8).
8. Press S.
9. Take the smallest hoop off the machine.
10 Slide the arm to where the knob on the arm is when the large hoop is on the machine.
11 The reading on the screen should be very close to the value that is in the LL setting.
12 If not, go through the large hoop steps (5-6) again.
13 Slide the arm to where the knob on the arm is when the smallest hoop is on the machine.
14 The reading on the screen should be very close to the value that is in the S setting.
15 If not, go through the smallest hoop steps (7-8) again.
16 Press close when you have both settings close. They need not be identical but they do need to be no further than 200 away from the screen value.
17 Turn the machine off.
18 Turn the machine back on, load a file, and see if you have the same results that I had; it will show the proper hoops when you press the hoop symbol and it will also center itself in the hoop properly.
You can buy the PR600 service manual online for about $12. However, you have the 620 manual for free and there is really very little difference. I have found the manual invaluable in saving me trips to the shop and doing my own repairs.
