    Are you removing the thread to wind a bobbin? If so, there is a stand-alone bobbin winder for ~$30 (called Sidewinder--electric or battery) that you can use to wind bobbins without undoing the machine. Also saves wear-n-tear on your machine.

I don't think that is a capability. Most computerized sewing machines reset themselves.

With embroidery card inserted into module, no motifs appear on the display screen.


Here are two other possibilities other than electrical problems with your Bernina. There are embroidery design cards that were made for the 200 & 730 that simply do not work in a 180. There is nothing marked on the card or the packaging that will tell you what model machine the card will work in. I sold a bunch of my design cards on eBay last winter and I tested all of them in both a 730 and a 180 before making the ad discription. I found that most of the design cards worked in the 180 & 730, but there were a few that only worked in the 730. So if your design card is one of those that won't work in a 180, that could be your problem.
You did not say if you have other design cards that do work or there is only one you tried. Possibly the card itself is bad.
A static shock to the card could possibly damage it.
So if you take your machine to a dealer to have it looked at, take your design card along.
The 180's memory for storing designs is located in the embroidery module, not the machine itself. If that memory is filled up with other designs this can cause a problem.
So your problem is most likely with the design card or with the embroidery module. Should you need to get another embroidery module, that module needs to be the same version number as your machine or it will not work. I have a. video posted on YouTube that shows you how to check the version number of your machine and module. That information is in my "Bernina check hours 165, 170, 180, 185" video. Put that in the YouTube search box and you will find my video. Plus I have other helpful Bernina videos posted.

Need to change stitch density


Hi Debbie,
I found the command for this change in the Features menu called "Balance" and it has a "b" symbol. In the ARtista 185 instruction manual this appears on page 30 so probably around there in your manual too.
Manual says
"Balance - touch symbol to open balance screen, correct forwards and reverse stitches, correct sideways motion stitches.
If you dont' have a manual you might want to download the 185 from the Bernina website, the link is http://bernina-globalsite.webtuning-cdn.ch/webautor-data/887/0308665104_0401_a185_EN.pdf

Hope this helps you to resolve your issue.

Unfortunatly I think the S-print circuitboard just went bad. You will need to go to a dealership and have one ordered and installed.
Sorry.
