Re: centering the starting point

Unfortunately you can't. It is imposible to move the neddle because of the machine limitation. It will only move to the starting point according to your design.

Ready to stitch embroidery letters but nothing happens. The start/stop button and the number 10 design on the machine blinks. What is wrong?

Make sure the machine is on a solid, level surface. Also, it may not work if you don't have the correct foot on the machine.

Centering needle on Baby Lock Ellure

Make sure the needle is at its highest point. Use the flywheel/ hand wheel on the right side of the machine to move the needle.

My singer xl-5000 has a misaligned hoop.

Have you found the reset to your machine yet? Mine's a Janome... but I think I hold the power and some other button together and it puts me in diagnostic mode. If you are computer savvy you should be able to navigate until you can find the reset. If this scares you... call a repair person

My needle goes too far right when starting up. It actually hits off the hoop and breaks. I have made the design smaller and centered but it still lines up too far to the right. I have changed the hoop...

This is common problem' is your machine under warrenty ? if so take it back to the place you got it. if not you will have to take i to a repair shop this is a computer board issue

Hoop doesn't center

The needle does not center when you have selected a design to stitch-out?

There is a FAQ for Futuras at the Singer Company website that may be of more help.

I'm using the Mega Single Hoop for the Viking Designer SE embroidery machine, because my design is too long for any other hoop. When I try to embroider, however, I get the message "Design outside hoop...

1. If the design came from the internet or a design package, it's possible that it's "center" has not been centered properly. To correct this you need to open the design in the Husqvarna Viking software and click on the "Center in Hoop" icon. That function redefines the center of the design so it will align properly in any hoop that it fits within. If you have 3d software, after clicking on that icon you physically have to put the black crosshair that designates the center in the design, in the very middle of the hoop and then save the design to your computer, then send it to the machine. The 4d software automatically centers the design in the hoop when you click on the icon.

If you have the software and you "combine" any designs together you must always click on the center design icon to recalculate or redefine the center position and then move the design's center to the middle of the hoop before saving the design. This way you center the designs center positoin around the needle position. Meaning that when you hit the start button on the machine, where ever the needle is, is where the center of your design is.

I hope this helps

Pr600 shunts over on big designs

You can try to calibrate the hoops by having the machine turned off and the largest hoop and smallest hoop ready hold down the start/stop button and the needle theader button and turn the machine on while holding those in, you should get a different screen that say a/d test in the upper left corner, put the largest hoop on the machine being shure the screws are tight and hit the l button on the upper right side the numbers next to the button will change, then put the smallest hoop on and hit the ss button once the thats done turn off the machine and on again and it will start normally and try your designs again if that doesnt work take it to a brother service center/ dealer and tell them to check your x-axis position

Needle sticking on hoop

When you switch the machine on with the embroidery unit on, it is suppose to calibrate itself and move the bottom left position. If not, the problem lies with the embroidery unit. If the machine is still under warranty your dealer should fix it free of charge.
