Re: Programming


Sounds like a screen calibration problem. Will need a dealer to check it and recal if required.

How do i restore designer pape only letter page is showing on screen have husqvarna designer 1 with 4d embroidery extra

I'm not sure I understand the problem exactly. It sounds like you touch pad is not responding properly. Did you notice before this happened that you needed to touch the screen not exactly where the button on the screen comes up. If that is the issue your best bet is to have a husqvarna Viking tech and have the touch screen calibrated.

My touch screen doesn't respond to touch what can I do?

techincally, you would have to take it to your nearest janome dealer and have them install a new touch might be something as simple as the digitizer which is the "touch" part of the screen which allows you to select your stitches ETC.

Screen calibration screwed up.. need to know how to reset 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.

How can I program a full name into my 1+Husquvarna Sewing machine?

I have the #1 and it should be similar in programming if not the same.

Instructions for the #1 (1200) -- Programming Block Letters
(one model down from the #1+ Husqvarna)
From the machine instruction page for letters and numbers

  • .Fabric Woven-medium, stitch & tear
  • .Enter: Woven-medium on your sewing advisor
  • .Consult Info display: Presser Foot B

Insert Cassette B
  • .Touch SELECT function to PROG
  • .Advance to an empty memory
  • (->) means arrow: .Touch H-> U-> S-> Q-> V-> A-> R-> N-> A (STOP) -> REP

  • .Place Stitch & Tear against the wrong side of your fabric.
  • .Stitch the word HUSQVARNA. Easy!
  • .Now, program your name and today's date. Stitch on your sample.

Smaller sizes of letters
You can program a number of letter sizes by - the width before entering the letter. You may want to enter the first letter of a name at 6.0 width and the other letters narrower.

Correcting Errors
You may clear any single stitch but the first one on a program. When the cursor is under the first stitch and you touch CLR, the entire program is erased.

NOTE: The cursor designates the first letter to be sewn.

Touch screen stopped working

Have you tried to recalibrate the touch screen in the Set Menu? If so, and it still doesn't respond, then the touch screen might have gone bad. This is something you should have a dealer repair. About a $200.00 repair.

Touch screen unresponsive

Whats the model number and type? A designer with the large touch screen can lose its programming on the screen and needs recalibrating. Models can be different and some have codes that need to be entered. Respond to this with the info and I will look it up and reply.

My touch screen on my Designer 1 is off-kilter. You touch to the right to get the left box to work. For example, if I use the first stitch I touch the second stitch. The touch also does not work well...

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.

I have a designer 1 and when i select the option block that I want - i actually have to touch below it a whole block for it to register what I wanted!! Help!! We moved states away from where I bought it.

Do you mean that you can't select a stitch except by touching below that stitch instead of on it? If yes, then you need to re-calibrate your screen. It's easy! You should use your stylus for this, but if you have lost it use the blunt end of a machine needle instead.

Go into your SET menu, hit More twice - or until you see "Color Touch Screen Adjust" (it might depend on what version machine software you have loaded just which screen it is on). Click on this. (Keep touching below and around the button until you get it to respond.) Touch in the CENTER of cross 1 (upper left corner of screen). When the cross changes from black to green, the point is set. Do the same with cross 2 (lower right). Done!

Just be sure to touch ONLY THE CROSSES on that screen, except for OK when you are done.

Touch screen not responding

Hi, my dealer told me mine might be going and it would cost $500 to repair it and it would have to be sent back to Janome for the repair.  
He said when it goes, it will be stuck on the last stitch you used.  You can still probably keep it for a straight stitch machine if you did not want to send it for repair.

Touch screen not responsive

You need to re-align the touch screen using the following routine:

Accessing Alignment Mode:

Then you will see a text message something like
"Press + to align"


Don't touch the "+" in the text message !!!!!

The one you want will be elsewhere on the screen and all on it's own, with no text around it.

Using the non pointed end of a needle, or the spare spool pin (nothing sharp) gently but as accurately as you can, touch the centre of the +

The + will move to several more locations as it organises the height, width and orientation you give by touching the centre of the + as it appears each time.

When it is finished, turn machine off, then on as normal.

If this does not correct the issue, it may well be something else, so please, if you want any more help with this, just post back here, or, drop a line through the "Contact Us" page at
