C. POSITION OF TOUCH PANEL

STANDARD

The deviation of the liquid crystal display and touch panel should be within 1 mm when the touch

panel is pressed.

ADJUSTMENT

1. Turn on the power switch while holding down the start/stop button, backtack button, and

NP button simultaneously.

2. While holding down the start button, press the + positions 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 on the screen in

order. If the buzzer sounds once when 5 is pressed, the position is okay. If the buzzer

sounds several times, the position is erroneous; therefore, adjust again. (When pressing

the screen, use a pencil (or match) with a round tip.)

3. Turn on the power again, and confirm that the screen display and touch panel positions
match.

Are the feed dogs in the raised position? Is it a regular stitch presser foot or a darning foot? A darning foot is shorter in height so the fabric can be maneuvered without use of the feed dogs. Just some ideas. Could also be an embroidery setting that has not been deactivated.

Position of Touch Panel.


It's been awhile, but I think you go into the test mode then hit one of the hard keys (start, threader, reverse). I know there is a backdoor for this.
On newer Brothers you touch the screen and hold while powering on, but I'm not sure yours does it that way.

The touch screen of my Bernina 580 stopped working today and it was perfectly OK yesterday. Is there a way to fix it on my own or should I look for help?


Calibrate the diplay
The Display calibration can be opened as follows:
- turn off the sewing-/embroidery computer
- touch the two needle positioning buttons on the front panel and keep them pressed
- turn on the sewing-/embroidery computer and release the buttons as soon as the Display appears
- touch the calibration icon
- touch the center of the cross using the touch pen
-- the cross moves to the next position
- repeat this until all three positions shown are calibrated
-- the Display is closed
-- the adjustment is saved
