Refer to your manual for maintenance and clean the machine as indicated. A sensor may be blocked by lint.

If this continues, the machine will need to be serviced by an authorized Bernina repair tech.

You can still find many Bernina Artista cards on Ebay but also on the web, some online sellers still sell them.

SOURCE: Bernina 180 with Firmware 2.08 - can it run DesignerPlus 5 or 6?

You will need to update the software in the machine, to a min of version 3.08 this can be done at BERNINA dealer (usually free of charge) once this is complete you designer will fully be compatible. WHEN YOU TAKE YOUR MACHINE IN TO BE UPDATE DO NOT FORGET TO TAKE THE EMBROIDERY UNIT IN AS WELL AS IT CONTAINS ITS OWN SOFTWARE

This is a great machine you have. I have the 170 so you're a step above me! The cards can be purchased at any Bernina dealer. If you log on to berninausa.com (you can go to the library and use their computer) and click on dealers in your area. You can place an order through them or visit the store to select what you need. If that isn't convenient you can go on eBay. There are usually tons of cards for sale at a discount. Just be sure they say Artista since that is the model you have. Another site is Craigslist.com. Just check the state and closest city near you. Most of the time there are local people selling cards and you can pick them up at their house. Be careful though if you get it through anyone other than a dealer. Make sure it is an Artista card and not a COPY that they made. Good luck. I wish you happy embroidering!

Unfortunately no, I think that the 185 and beyond use the same emb module. The 180 if I remember correctly, has the memory and card reader in the module itself and may have a different plug. I do know for sure that the 180 hoops will definitely not fit on the newer modules. Sorry to disapoint, Allen

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.

How can I purchase a hard drive for a Bernina 180 Embroidery Machine. The authorized Bernina Repair man can install it?


Don't think they offer that nor was it an option. They have a serial interface to download or upload designs to or from the machine's embroidery option. Check out a USB to Serial onverter and connect the PC to the machne. I used a Dynex brand cable and it worked. Use Bernina'a Artlink software (it;s free) and connect that way. Very easy to use.

If you have the machine connected to the computer you can delete the embroidery from your machine, Artlink software is for this machine to write designs or read designs from your machine.

I purchased a CD Rom embroidery which had the usual formats on its cover, including art. which is what I need. I could open the CD on my computer, but when I tried to send it to my Artista 180, it told me...


How did you try to transfer the ART design to your 180? It needs Artlink by Bernina to do so or the Bernina Designer program. There are different ART versions and as I know, only the Designer can convert it to the version that your model can handle. I also own some CDs and never had any problem transferring any to a Personal Design card or stitching them out with my Bernina 165.

If you doing an embroidery, it has to have something to do with the way the design was digitized. We have a BERNINA ARTISTA 180 and have never come across this problem. The embroidery machine only reads what is on the disk. Try putting your design through the computer.
