Question about Husqvarna Designer I

1 Answer

Touch screen When I touch the screen nothing happens. Everything else works well. Does anyone have a diagram of how the board is wired? I had to take off the cover due to the fact that the bobbin winder needed repair. There is a pin on the bobbin winder that sometimes jumps out of the hole. I can not afford to take it to my dealer. Can anyone help me?

The most likely culprit is the cable of the touchscreen. If the cable is about 1/2" wide and yellowish brown in color, take it to your dealer and ask them to calibrate the touch screen for you. The screen can be calibrated by a trained technician without having the ability to use the screen for the adjustment.
If the cable is about 1" wide and green, save up your money and have your dealer replace your touch screen. Those cables are very short and if you flex the end prior to getting your hand in to disconnect it you can very easily damage the cable and the touch screen must be replaced. Also, if the cable was pulled taught during removal and pulled out of the connector on the main ckt board prior to releasing the locking device the contacts on the ribbon may have been damaged.
Just be honest with your dealer and tell them that you can't afford a costly repair at this time and you need to know what is wrong.
I don't know what your dealer will charge for labor, but I can say that a new touch screen costs about 5 times what a new bobbin winder does. Removing the covers of modern machines on your own can end up causing your repair cost to skyrocket. Also, once the pin in the bobbin winder has moved in the frame, it will most likely move again and the winder should be replaced to avoid recurrence.

Bernina 180E Touch Screen Dark, machine light won't come on.


I don't know the circuit of this sewing machine but it gives me the impression the light and the board are in series with a fuse. If this is true the light will burn out and cause the screen to go black as well. If the fuse would go out the same thing would be true. Anyway, change the light first. If this doesn't work you will need to replace the fuse. If there are still problems it will need the mother board to be replaced. Tell me how this worked out.

I am a service technician and am in need of the diagram illustrating the schematics for cable connections to the pc board. Can anyone help me without it costing me anything?


Do you want detailed information on what each wire/signal is, or are you just needing a 'block' diagram covering what each connector generally does ?

DEsigner I...I had been having some issues with the touch pad. Now it does not work at all when you touch it.


Youu either need a new touch screen or it has come unplugged from the main power board inside the machine. Those touch screens cost about $210 and should only be installed by your dealer. If you have someone try to put the touch screen in and they just touch the display screen incorrectly, you'll need a new display screen too. They cost about $700.

The touch screen is scrambled and frozen


Are you saying that nothing at all happens every time, or sometimes you get the wrong thing i.e. you touch Prog and Rep screen comes up? Have you ever recalibrated your screen? This should be done regularly - at least every six months, but I do mine monthly. The catch is that in order to do this, you need to access the Set Menu and if your screen is not responding at all this would be impossible. In the Set Menu on the last page (I think) there is a "Color Touch Screen Adjust" button. Use this to access the calibration screen, and you must touch exactly in the centre of the two crosshairs until they turn green. Instructions are on Page 31 of my manual.
