VCR's are complicated mechanical buggers relatvie to even a DVD player. There's a multitude different little plastic pieces, drive gears, etc. than can break or wear out over time to make the mechansim stop working.

15 Years ago VCR repair places did good business fixing them. These days no one bothers fixing VCR's so the ones that do exist, charge a ridiculous rate.

You will save yourself money and grief if you buy a VCR on eBay for ~$10.

I have a 1973 Bernina Record that I have been using quite regularly in recent months. It suddenly started running by itself. Is there a fix for this problem?


Generally, it is a problem with the foot control.

BTW, if the foot control has the number 213 on the bottom and there is not a "T" or "S" etched or label somewhere, these control units have a risk of catching fire. (The T or S indicates it has been repaired.) You can have the foot control repaired or pick up a replacement.

How do I remove the cassettes or cassettes from an Elna 7000? It stopped working after a power surge. I bought a used machine that works, but it doesn't have the 2 cassettes with the extra stitches.


The cassettes have a little tab you pull on which folds flat afterwards.
Disconnect from the power.
Open the cassette cover on the right side with a coin or with a screwdriver. Free the opening to the cassette housing by moving the slide downwards for inserting the upper cassette and upwards for inserting the lower cassette. (to insert, fit the cassette gently and firmly into its housing and fold the tab flat.) You will need to reverse to remove them. I've got a feeling they can get pretty firm when they have been in there for years, most people would add the extra cassettes and never remove them.

How can I fix the needle assembly on my Bernina 930 Record...it all of the sudden doesn't move up and down?


There is a screw-in "hub", a round thingie, to tighten on the end of the machine, in the middle of the big spinning wheel. Hold the wheel and turn the hub clock-wise to tighten it ("Righty-Tighty, Lefty-Loosy).

It may be a bit tight to start with, they can "jam" open. Just turn it firmly as needed.

The reason the hub tightens and loosens is so you can run the machine quite fast when filling a bobbin up with thread without having all the gears and werkin's clatter as you do so.

Here is a VIDEO (better than just a photo, yes?) on how to operate your very model sewing machine! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=drLD66Wa7U0

Won't operate. Won't go forward or in reverse, happened all of the sudden. Hand crank fine, but the whirring sound comes from that area.


it's possible that something in the machine has come loose or broken
it would have to be serviced at a sewing machine shop

Sewing machine won't raise the bobbin thread


Hi. The two main reasons why the top thread doesn't pick up the bobbin thread is either the needle is inserted wrong or the needle is bent. Since your machine was sewing properly until the thread broke, I'd be inclined to think the needle may have gotten bent. Sometimes this can happen if you sew over a pin.

Change the needle (making sure the flat side of the needle shank is inserted properly for your machine) and see if that solves the problem. Let me know if it helps, ok?

My cs-8060 has quit automatically threading the needle.


Be sure that your needle is one that matches your machine, most are standered but check to be sure you don't have an off brand.

Husqvarna Prisma 980 decorative stitch cassettes don't work


Hi,
On that machine, the cassettes aren't actually computer chips. Each cassette has a little spot of white on a certain little area you must find (top right I'm pretty sure). Look in the machine at that point. There is a sensor that looks for that white spot, and as it identifies it, it changes stitches according to that cassette. Either the sensor is blocked, gone bad, or you can put a fresh coat of white paint on with white out. I hope this helps.

Broken needle threader?


Hi - welcome to FixYa. I have this machine, and unfortunately, the cassettes can break. If the threader worked when you first got your machine, I would suggest buying a new cassette (even if your threader is working). A second cassette is very handy because you can thread your next color in the extra cassette before the machine stops for the next color change - when the machine does stop, just put in the second cassette, and thread the other with the next color - speeds things up alot. And, if one of the cassettes does break, you aren't sitting in a puddle waiting for a new one.. You can find the thread cassettes for sale on a variety of sites - this is where I buy mine:

http://webstore.quiltropolis.net/stores_app/Browse_dept_items.asp?Store_id=492&page_id=17

Some of the 270Ds came with a spool pin - look in your manual for a picture and for the instructions for installing and using the spool pin. You can use it for spool of thread that are too large for the cassette and I think you can leave it installed on your machine all the time. If you don't have your manual, leave a comment and I'll look mine and check the instructions.

Hope this helps. If you have a minute, a rating (good or bad) tells me if the information or solution I provide is helpful to anyone who visits FixYa.

If you would like me to write a tip on salvaging an embroidery project that has been pulled into a birdsnest, leave a quick comment and I'll add the tip. Thanks everybody, and good luck. Please feel free to comment if you need more help or have more questions.
