    Thank you so very much!!! That was the easiest part of the whole transaction!! I was originally told the cable would cost $300 and I freaked! Ten bucks is manageable!

SOURCE: Bernina Virtuosa 153 QE Won't turn on

If you've got bad luck like I do, you probably blew out the circuit board! It took my Bernina dealer 4 months to get another from Sweden; thank goodness they gave me a loaner.
Unfortunately, it happened again right after I picked it up from the dealer, and they have to find another circuit board for it! It's not a problem with my electrical wiring because the loaner ran just fine.
It's very, very frustrating because I'm a small business and need my machine running!

SOURCE: i have Bernina VIRTUOSO 153

The CPS software and cable allows you to pick from a catalog and change the stitches on your machines memory.

Standing in front of the machine, the PC plug is on the right.

If you cannot update designs on machine with CPS program, click here.

If you have a problem with your CPS v4.0 Software and an uninstall/reinstall did not correct the problem, click here.

Windows Vista and 7 Compatibility Information:
BERNINA CPS v4.1 - CPS v4.1 program does not require a dongle in order to open and should be able to work on Windows Vista and Windows 7. In a few tests, there has been reports that a 'Registration of Knob.ocx failed' error may occur when you attempt to open CPS v4.1. Clicking OK from this message should allow you to open CPS.
If other specific problems occur within older versions of CPS, the solution would be to update CPS v4.1. Contact your BERNINA dealer for details on how to get a copy of the BERNINA CPS v4.1 Installation CD.

Can a Bernina Virtuosa 153 still download stitches into its CPS system with Windows 10?

The Virtuoso was pre-Windows 10, so a Windows 10 system will probably have some issues. You might want to contact Bernina. They can tell you if your machine can be upgraded to Win10.

Some one said if you use a different needle will damage the hook what is a hook i use a different needle for awhile how can you tell if you damage the hook i got a bernina 153 QE from a friend work good...

The hook is in the bobbin area and is what takes the thread from the needle to make the stitch. A standard 15x1 needle or 705 needle is the correct needle for your machine. They are available at ant sewing center.
