Question about Husqvarna Sewing Machines
It is coming from the mechanism that drives the needle bar, if it is dark or black, you need to have it looked at by an authorized Viking repair shop asap or you will wear out the cradle, the crank, the needle bar, or all 3. Those can be costly.

If the thread will not run through the tension mech on 0 then it is probably stuck on a tight setting. It can be a bit complicated but the tension mech can be stripped/cleaned/free'd up. Another possible cause is the path of the thread from the spool to the needle any deviation from the correct path increases the tension at the needle. If you do not know the history of the machine I would suggest a thorough clean and service.

The Designer 1 needs the design in an shv format in order to read it. The floppy disk for an older machine may be created using several different programs but the Husqvarna Viking module is known as Disk Manager. It is included with many of the HV software packages. With a newer USB Designer 1, the program is Disk Manager USB.

Sorry that I did not see this sooner.
It sounds like you should have your embroidery unit serviced. Sometimes they will accumulate lint on the slide rods and it inhibits the movement of the mechanism as if you were to bump into it while it is trying to move.
Quite often, this will happen repeatedly in the same point in the design and make people think that there may be something wrong with the design. But, usually it is just that the embroidery unit can't move freely.

I have seen some of the older style machines that are very susceptible to static charge. Usually this doesn't happen with newer ones. If you get static shocks on door knobs in your house, do not touch the screen of your machine with your finger. Use a stylus instead. You may also try touching the metal presser bar just above the foot and ankle when sitting down at the machine prior to using the screen. This should not be happening with a new machine. Check with your dealer.

Is the problem with embroidery only? If with both sewing and embroidery function and there is no error code (just 00) on the display, my wife experienced the same problem. There was an internal sensor that was bad. The sewing machine shop repaired with a new Singer part. Part was about $20, labor was $180.
