Cancelling a transmission

When I try to embroider by "sending to machine" it says
"Transmission in process, cancel transmission before beginning another" I have tried everything from turning machine off, re-booting computer and every time I try to sew again I get the same message. Does anyone know how to cancel a transmission?

    Thank you for the sugesstion.

    However, the machine has been turned off for at least a week now.
    When I go in my only option is to create a new or open an existing file
    I tried to print is not saved. When I hit "File", "Exit" it
    exits the program. There is no other place for me to exit.
    Other sugesstions?

    Thank you so much for your help.

You must remember your machine acts like a printer. It will only accept another pattern once the current one is finished. A common fault amongst many users are that they send another pattern while the machine is busy with the current pattern. The correct procedure would be to cancel the current pattern, before sending another one.

You do this by clicking on "exit". Another window will open and ask you if you want to terminate the current transmision to the machine.

If you send one pattern over the current one, your machine is capable of queing and the only wat to resove the issue is by switching the machine off and leaving it off for 60 seconds and resend your nwe pattern

Hope this help you

How do I do an embroidered name tag

Your machine would need to have the capability to embroider. Then it's a matter of designing and programming what you want, setting up the machine, and then stitching it. (Not an easy process if new to embroidery.)

Go to Go to FAQ and go to #7. Follow the procedure EXACTLY, save one thing that is not on there. BEFORE you do anything, make double-sure your machine is set for embroidery (E) and not sewing (S). Even if you follow the procedure exactly, if your machine is on 'S' and not 'E', you will continue to get the 'transmission' message.
