SOURCE: Once I set up my design card and select design, the needle moves

Hi, and welcome to FixYa. If I understand your problem, the needle goes in and out of your fabric, and the embroidery hoop moves, but the machine does not actually start embroidering your design right away....did I get it right? If have time to answer a few questions, I can give more accurate instructions.

  1. How long have you had your machine?
  2. How long have you been doing machine embroidery?
  3. Do you have a manual for your machine?
  4. Look at the back side of your design - do you see lots of bobbin thread, or hardly any?
  5. Have you taken lessons for your machine or for embroidery?
  6. When your design is finished, can you where the machine skipped stitches?
Here a couple of things you can try (if you have already):

  • Make sure you use an embroidery needle, not a universal. In most cases, you should use a size 90. Change your needle after each project. A blunt need can cause your machine to skip embroidery stitches anywhere in the design.
  • Rewind or replace your bobbin. Make sure you use bobbin thread in your bobbin when you embroider - it is thinner and gives you better tension. If pre-wound embroidery bobbins are compatible with your machine, I recommend that you try one and compare the result with designs sewn using the bobbin thread you've been using.
  • Normally, you should loosen your tension a little bit when you embroider. When you look at the back side of your embroidery, you should see more bobbin thread than embroidery thread.
I owned an embroidery business for several years, and I have six different embroidery machines of my own - so with a little more info from you, I think I can help.

SOURCE: Design is ready, when green light is pressed nothing happens

I have had good luck contacting the Singer peoplee themselves. Sometimes it takes a couple of days for them to respond. But, if that doesn't help try this.

Can you go forward a few stitches annd then start?
If not, try condensing your design by 1-2%. This was recommended to me by Singer when I had part of a design that wouldn't stitch out. It did the same as your whole design. I tend to think it is the digitizer, not the machine in my instance. Have you tried another design by a different digitizer?
Hope this helps.

Can't remember the Ace but you need to take the top off if you can and check the nylon camstack, very prone to splitting and the selecter finger getting stuck in the slot

Take the needle out and put it back in carefully. If that doesn't solve the prob, replace it with another needle, and hopefully it will return to working.

You can find a manual for for your machine in the link. In the photo below it show the same type of bobbin as your machine. It may or may not help you. It is a little fiddly if you have never done it but take your time and have lots of patience. Having a manual for your machine is invaluable.

Brother embroidery machine has started shifting design outline between first colour and others, about 1/2 inch can't back up to correct starting point, doesn't respond.


Did it do this on more than one pattern? Has it stitched this pattern before correctly ? You can try turning the machine off and back on and let it reset. If it is only doing it with this pattern and it's the first time you have stitched it , try again after turning the machine off and back on. If it's not doing it to other patterns and you bought the pattern contact who you bought it from as there is a flaw in the design. Have them check and resend it. I have a converter program so if you get it in a different format you can change it to your format. Sometimes it is designed on a different machine and did not convert well. When I have this problem I download it in .hus and convert it for brother. There are several free preview programs that show you the design and stitch order and let you save it to different formats. If this isn't the problem I would call brother USA +1-877-276-8437

The timing is out and was wondering how to fix it


Because the timing has been changed it will need to have a repairman fix it. Another possibility is to go to youtube timing sewing machines.

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

Create my own designs


Your CE 250 allows you to do very basic digitizing by using Autopunch.

To activate autopunch, click on "create" from the top menu and select "autopunch" from the drop down menu. A new Autopunch wizard menu should open. Click on "next" on the browse to your jpeg file by clicking on "select". Keep on clicking on "next" until you get to the "customize stitch block" menu. Here you are able to remove unwanted blocks or change the stitching order by clicking on a block in the right hand menu and the clicking on the "Remove", "move up" or "move down" buttons.

By clicking on the radio buttons, just below the "move down" button, you can also select between Fill stitch or Satin stitch. When you are happy with your decisions, click on next and click on finish.

That is about all that you can do and autopunch will do the rest. I suggest you import a couple of dfferent clipart images and play around as discribed above to make you familiar with the program. You will also see different results by changing options.

If you are not happy with final results, I suggest you invest in a proper digitizing program, such as Creative Drawings. Visit the at www.drawstitch.com/Creative

Good Luck

Using Autopunch


Dear CJ,

You must always remember that Autopunch is a very basic digitizing program and can only digitize very basic jpeg images with clear color difinitions.

To activate autopunch, click on "create" from the top menu and select "autopunch" from the drop down menu. A new Autopunch wizard menu should open. Click on "next" on the browse to your jpeg file by clicking on "select". Keep on clicking on "next" until you get to the "customize stitch block" menu. Here you are able to remove unwanted blocks or change the stitching order by clicking on a block in the right hand menu and the clicking on the "Remove", "move up" or "move down" buttons.
