ES2 needs calibrated and/or reset to English language
Cannot select English for the language--it seems I need to touch the screen higher than I am able to...for some reason the screen seems to be out of sync with the various selection buttons/indicators...please advise.

Are the tabs at the top of the screen in English or French? According to the manual, you should be able to change the language from the Set tab. If these are in French, that will be the second tab from the right. Touch the More (Plus) button, on the left above the Fabric information, to scroll through the Set menu screens. You need the line for Language (Langue, which is on the second screen, just above the More and OK buttons. Press the Next button to the right of this line to scroll through the available languages. Press the OK button (on the right next to the More button) to save the selection.
I'm guessing here but you might need to calibrate the touch screen or possibly a circuit board has moved inside the machine. I don't know if you can reboot the machine or return it to factory settings which might reset everything. Failing all of that I'd be asking a computer/phone repair place to look at it.
You can get back into the touch-screen calibration routine if you start up the machine with both of the needle offset buttons pressed at the same time ... once you've calibrated the touch-screen you'll be OK again.
On the touch screen touch "English" until your language choice is indicated. The language setting remains until it is changed. Refer to manual page 21 which can be downloaded free from this link: http://manuals.husqvarnaviking.com/
Since you can't get any response to your Menu-Norm-Prog-Rep-Set-or Help on your touch screen but you can get into your stitches, It does sound like you need to re-calibrate your touch screen. Normally you would get into your Set Menu to access your touch screen calibration. But as suggested on another solution. You turn off your Des 1, Holding in the reverse button (bottom left of the eight buttons) and the pivot button (the second one from the bottom of the four buttons) at the same time and turn on your machine. This is the Service menu that pops up (try not to touch anything on this screen, it could really mess things up if you don't know what you are doing) After this screen pops up go over to the eight buttons on the far left of your machine and touch the needle up, needle down button (top right button of the eight) the Calibration Screen will pop up on your touch screen (two plus marks labeled 1 & 2) In your sewing sitting position touch the center of the #1 mark and then the #2 mark. Once you've done that the Service Screen will pop back up. Shut off your Des 1 and restart it normally. Try getting into your different menus- Menu-Norm-Prog Etc. Hopefully that fixed your Calibration issue!
** Note: If the service menu doesn't pop up when trying to hold in these 2 buttons together and turning on your Des 1 the buttons weren't held in properly and you need to turn it off and try it again.
Hopefully that helped you out!!
You need to access the SET menu. Try pushing to the right of this in various spots and hopefully you will be able to get in to this menu. Then you need to keep hitting More until you get to "Colour touch screen adjust" . Select this (by trial and error - keep touching to the right of the square until it is selected). Now get your stylus and carefully press it directly in the centre of the crosshatches - first the one marked "1" - it should turn green - then the one marked "2" - it too will turn green. Your screen is now re-calibrated and you should be able to push the buttons and get the correct selection. If not, I think the machine should be seen by a technician. There may be problems either with the screen or the motherboard.
1. Turn off 2. on Sewing arm above needle there are a series of buttons 3. Hold down bottom 3 buttons 4. While holding turn on machine 5. Using scribe 6. Touch the centre of each + as it appears 7. It will go Centre bottom rh centre top lh as you select each + position it moves of it's own accord. 8. Turn off machine 9 Turn on and test.
Important sometimes this does not entirely fix prob!! Simply do it again "Yahoo"" Some mechanics will try to tell U the screen is on it's way out Bollocks just calibrate. Thanks CYA
Turn on your machine. The SET tab is the fifth from the left (or second from the right). Touch that. You now need to touch the More button, which is on the bottom row and is the button on the left hand side (there are two buttons at the bottom - More and OK). On the next page that comes up, the LANGUAGE select button is the single orange button at the bottom of the list. The two buttons at the very bottom are once again More and OK, so go above them to the single orange button. Each time you press this, the language changes. There are quite a lot to scroll through, but keep pushing it until English comes up again. That should fix your machine for you. No suggestions on how to fix your husband, though! Pamsquilt
