SOURCE: reverse sewing button stuck HELP!!

MOdel 6430 has the stitch length and buttonhole selector on the same knob. It is the one on the bottom right side of the machine. I believe you may have selected the buttonhole by pulling out on the large round knob. You need to turn the knob back to 0 zero and push in. This should return the machine to normal mode.Adjust your stitch length to 3 and try it. The reverse knob in the center should also stick out so that it becomes operational again.

I was just given a Viking Rose but I cant get the panel to respond. It sews great, but I cant use the panel.

If there is an LED screen on your machine and it is not working, most likely a computerized component has failed. Sometimes that could be quite expensive to repair--probably why you got it for free. Whoever had it decided that it might cost too much. However, on the other hand, you do have a free machine that you may have to pay a few hundred dollars to get it to work. It would be best to consult with a Viking dealer or sewing repair shop.

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.

How to open fixed screen? on Designer 1

I would check the Touch Screen first. Your Owner's Manual tells you how to calibrate the touch screen from the SET menu. However if the touch screen isn't working, you can't get to the SET menu. Suggest taking it to an authorized Viking Dealer and they would be able to quickly determine the solution. You can find the nearest dealer by going to the Viking website - website and click on 'Locate a Dealer'.

How do I reset the touch screen on my viking s25 serger? It stopped responding to touch.

Turning it off for a while and then turning it back on will sometimes reset. However, the problem could be a computer component that has gone bad.

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.

It could be the touch panel or the main board. The touch panel ribbon connector could be loose but not likely. Needs to be diagnosed by a good tech. for Viking.

Am trying to change from light weight knit fabric on machine to light weight woven.push screen and it won't change . designer viking 1

It sounds like the screen has lost calibration. If you can get into "set" touch more until you see color touch screen adjust, then click on it. Click in the middle crosshairs next to the one, it should make a "click" and change colors, after that, do it to the crosshair next to the 2. touch "save". If you can't get the crosshairs to respond to your touchtry cleaning the entire machine and the screen with a static remover spray (NEVER SPRAY SCREEN DIRECTLY) spray your clean cotton cloth( eyeglass rag is awesome here) and wipe the machine down, then try again until successful. The company reccommends using a touch stylus in place of your finger to eliminate the transfer of static electricity to your machine
Hope this helps.
