I have an Artista 180. It is not recognizing the embroidery module. The pins that connect the unit are not bent. Is it the board?

The machine should always be off when you attach the embroidery unit. Attaching it without it being turned off can damage the computer system of the machineor embroidery unit. It needs to be tested by a repairman.

SOURCE: USB to Serial port cable for Bernina Artista 180

Just happen to be sitting in front a Bernina 180 at this very moment - with the connecting cable attached to a Keyspan USA-19HS Adapter. It is a current adapter available from either Keyspan (www.keyspan.com) or any number of computer retailers - physical or online. Seems to run around $30.00 just about everywhere. Auction sites may have bargain. Worked like a charm on an older XP computer as I was able to test the older software I had due to it having the necessary parallel port the the older dongle. While I am fairly certain this combination would also work on my Windows 7 computer, I am unable to test it as I have not come across a parallel adapter that will work with the older software parallel dongle. I've had other programs/peripherals that utilize usb to serial adapter (on my Windows 7) that have worked fine, so I suspect this would also be the case.

Hope this helps. If you have specific questions, please don't hesitate to contact us.

Happy stitching,
Kim

SOURCE: cant connect my artista 180 to my pc it says 'serial port engaged'

Try changing to a different COM port and make sure you haven't got any other applications running that might be using the serial port, even if you've nothing connected ... have you recently installed something that might be using the COM port ?

I have a Bernina Artista 180 with embroidery module. I put in the plug in the wrong direction once and now it will not connect the module to the sewing machine. Can this be fixed?


It is very likely that when you attempted to connect the embroidery unit with the plug out of alignment that you would have bent some of the pins on the male side of the plug. It is possible, though not advisable, to straighten the pins in this pug. However, if not done perfectly, this could cause further damage to both the male and female sides of the plug. I would recommend taking it in to a local BERNINA dealer and repair center to have that cable replaced just to be safe.

The embroidery unit no longer registers on my artista 180 when I connect it. I borrowed a friends embroidery unit and it worked so i assume it not the 180 which is the problem. What should be my next move...


If you bought the embroidery unit with the machine, I would try to take it back to the place of purchase & ask for a sewing tech to check the machine & unit for you.
I recently had a similar issue with my machine-took it to a local bernina agent & within a week, it was back in my sewing room, at no cost to me. I hope this helps you, & yes I have a 180 with the embroidery unit like you mentioned

Bernina 180E Embroidery module not recognized


Anytime there is a communication issue between machine and module attach the module to a different machine and check it. Possibly at a dealership. This will tell you whether its the machine or module. If its the machine then the soldering points on the embroidery module plug to the A-print (on the side of the machine) circuitboard need to be checked. Then most likely replace the A-print circuitboard.
There are other tests that need to be done in the service program that will help pinpoint and troubleshoot issues with the embroidery unit. Such sensors or stepping motors, etc. Should be left to a tech.
Hope I helped.
