More than likely it blew the fuse in the transformer, although it is fairly easy to replace this fuse it is important to find out why it blew. The transformer is under the machine and held in place by 4 screws. Take this out and ease the transformer out, it will still be hooked to the connecting wires just gently disconected them. Once you open the transformer you will see a small fuse, you can take it to radio shack and get an EXACT replacement.

Viking 980 foot pedal not making contact with machine although machine has power.

It could be lint jammed into the jack the cord plugs into. Make sure the jack and plug are both clean and free of lint. It also could be a damaged cord. If a friend has a working Viking pedal try borrowing theirs to see if it works on your machine. If not, your machine might need service.

I went to use my Bernina 640 after 18 months of storage, and it will not turn on. The screen is blank and the light is not on. The outlet is working, and I triple checked all connections. It just...

Are none of the lights on .... for example, is the sewing light on or the display backlight, even if there's nothing displayed on the screen. If it's completely dead, there may be a problem with the power supply 'L'-print module, but before you go poking-around, please make sure that the machine is dry and has not got damp in storage. Open the bobbin door and check that there's no sign of brown stains around the rotary hook (shuttle). Does the mechanism move OK when you turn the handwheel ? It's important to know whether damp has got into the machine because if-so it's essential to have the machine properly dismantled and dried BEFORE applying power for a long time, since this can destroy the main processor board, which is very expensive to replace.

No power for viking 1+

I'm going to assume "by no power" you mean the light doesn't come on and the machine won't run. If this is the case you might want to unplug the cord from the machine and plug it back in. If this solves your problem , GREAT. If not, you have either a burned out fuse or a bad circuit board which means you need to get it to a good mechanic who can get Viking parts.
