SOURCE: Vista unable to install Futura software

I found a solution that seemed to work for my setup (Vista-Futura 200): Go to the Futura support site www.futura-support.com . Choose "Service Updates" from the left-hand Menu. Choose "Quantum® FUTURA™ (CE-200) Owners running Windows XP Service Pack 2 operating system WITH one or more of the Options (AutoPunch, CrossStitch, PhotoStitch, and HyperFont) installed". Look for the bullet-point list in the explanations. It says there: "If you own the AutoPunch Option and you could not successfully install it, download the Service Update by clicking here." Select the highlighted link, download the patch and install it. Worked fine for me, I hope it helps you, too.

SOURCE: importing files into futura

The basic Futura program cannot take regular image files like jpegs or bmps. You have to have Futura Autopunch to convert image files into embroidery files. Whatever images you have must be converted to a compatible embroidery format. Autopunch and PhotoStitch are able to do this. I suggest you invest in Autopunch to start.

The following steps must be followed for proper start-up protocol. If these steps are not followed precisely, you will get a “Transmission Pending” error message.

  1. Turn on your sewing machine by setting the Power/Light switch to ( l ). Make sure the needle has been moved to the highest position by turning the Handwheel towards you.
  2. Attach the hoop that you plan to work with to your embroidery unit.
  3. Double click on the Futura Icon on your desktop, to open up the Futura Software.
  4. You are now ready to select and transmit a design to your machine
IMPORTANT: If you have embroidered using the small hoop, and you are now ready to use your large hoop. Turn off your machine, close the Futura software and then turn OFF your computer. Wait one minute, turn on your computer and then follow steps 1 through 4.

I'm looking for a Manuel and a start up cd for a xl 400 singer embroidering machine..


Singer has the manual for the Futura XL400 on the product site: http://www.singerco.com/products/2168/xl-400-futura . The direct link to the instruction manual is http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/bbd749beb7151a637824d777a05c51b4fb50b0a4.pdf . There is also a quick start guide. Additional documentation and driver upgrade software is here: http://futura-support.com/products/xl-400 . Unfortunately, Singer doesn't provide replacement CDs if you lost the original one. According to the directions for the driver upgrade, you need the CD to install the upgrade.

The software packages are available for sale at Amazon and other vendors. Some CDs may be available on E-bay.

I hope the manual helps.

New machine, plug in turn on and it beeps at me and all the lights are blinking and it is doing nothing. It is a singer futura xl400


If it's new, take it back immediately! You'll end up with it in the shop more than your home. Go to a local sewing machine dealer with a repair shop. They can tell you which brands are reliable, and will fit your needs.

Why is the fabric bunching into the bobbin when embroidering with the Singer Futura


bobbin thread is too high pressure or too low pressure on teh top adjustment!

remove bobbin and turn tension screw about 1/8turn left (anticlockwise) check if still grabbing, if so - top thread turn about 1/4 turn (at embroidery ir should do automatically, but sometimes need kick...).

check if it is still grabbing on the bottom, do it grab during straight? zigzag? double zigzag? if do not - setting on the pattern need to be look at. if it tangle as well on these three - need definitely servicing...

follow manual how to adjust.

Xl400 futura software won't work on windows xp


I owned an XL-400, and now own an XL-550 and Quintet, which all run on the same software. Could you be more specific about the problem you're having?

I have a feeling that you received the basic Futura software, as well as a second CD with the add-on software like AutoPunch, and THAT software refuses to install, giving you a message that the basic Futura software hasn't been installed. It has, but XP has not yet installed the drivers into Windows. What you need to do is after installing the basic Software, you need to plug the machine into the computer and turn it on. You will get a message, "Installing new Hardware." Bring up the Futura program once and then close it, and NOW you will be able to install the add-on software.

Software wont open for Singer Futura XL400


Before any Singer Futura embroidery software will open, your machine must be on and connected by USB cable to the PC. It serves as a dongle. Many high-end programs require that a USB plug called a dongle be inserted before their program will open; connecting the PC serves as a substitute for that.

Need a patch for Singer Futura XL400 windows 7


I don't why you need a patch for Win 7; the software was created for and works on Windows XP, Win 7 and Win 8 without alteration. However, there IS an update patch available at the Futura support site, www.futura-support.com. Click the My Machine model link at the top, select your machine, and then select Software on the left, and you can download the patch.

My Singer Futura CE-250 keeps giving me an error


"PC" symbols on the machine panel if it is not connected to PC and switched on is a normal behaviour.
As for communication failure try to remember whether something on your pc has been changed: windows upgrade, machine got connected to another usb port etc. If any of such changes have been made try to reinstall Futura software. Otherwise launch troubleshooting utility and send its report to futura-support.
