My floopy disc drive and my usb drive refuse to work on my toyota esp 9000 embroidery machine. What could be wrong?

Could be a software issue or computer component. Like computers, these functions tend to go wonky once in awhile. Perhaps a software upgrade is needed, but if the computer component is faulty, you could be unnecessarily paying for a software upgrade that won't solve the issue.

How much should I pay for a second hand 3230 Elna bought in 2012? It is in very good condition.

This really isn't an appraisal service. You can search online (eBay, Etsy, etc.) sites that have recently sold similar machines. Price also depends on its physical and working condition, the accessories that are included, where it is located, etc. In essence, an item's value is only worth what a seller is willing to pay.

The lower tension on my bernina 1005 stitches ok for a couple of inches then goes loose for a bit and then back to normal - normal checks done including a new needle?

Is your bobbin case a genuine Bernina bobbin case? If not, replacing the bobbin case will solve the problem. It is a common problem to find a Oriental copy of a bobbin case in a Bernina machine for a number of reasons, such as where the casing was swapped by accident or intentionally. Most often, repair technicians don't know the difference and would rather pay $7.00 for a Chinese casing rather than $56.00 for an OEM casing. Whatever the case may be, if the machine tension nests on the bottom side, stitches erratically, or breaks thread, changing the casing can solve the problem.
The bobbin cases may have similarities but there are subtle physical differences that prevents thread escapement over the bobbin case.
Much more information would be needed in order to discover your problem, however.
Other problems can occur by incorrect starting of the machine such as beginning sewing by holding the top thread rather than turning the machine hand-wheel in the direction so that the take-up lever is at the highest position. Machines like the 1005 do not have an automatic "Needle Stop' function.
There can also be similar problems if an industrial cone spool is used where thread is being pulled off of the spool's side rather than from the top center of the spool.
If the bobbin case is an OEM casing it is possible that the "loop lift (needle and sewing hook) timing" has been knocked out such as having had a collision of the needle with a button, zipper, straight pin, etc. Bernina 1005's and all of the newer machines are not constructed in such a way that would prevent this from occurring. As mentioned, more information would be needed here.

Hello I have an old sewing machine and would like to know what its worth it was my moms about 50 years ago its a kenmore 117-552 Serial n is 376239/ tHANKS

Hi. Unfortunately, sewing machines were manufactured by the millions and those from 50 years ago are still going strong and readily available. The value of any sewing machine is determined by how much someone is willing to pay for it. There are some older machines that collectors will pay good money for, if the machine is in excellent shape and has all the attachments. To get an idea of what people are willing to pay for your machine, check the listings in Ebay. There is a vintage kenmore group on yahoo groups that you can check also.

Hope this helps,
