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.

Artista 165 embroidery unit will not communicate with my sewing machine.


Did it ever work ? Have you had the firmware updated in the machine - if-so, the V4.04 firmware will not communicate with a V3 embroidery unit and you'll have to get them updated to the same version. Failing that, I'm afraid one of them has a fault on the serial interface. Note also that a 165 sewing machine will not work with a 180/185 embroidery unit because the earlier unit has a 2MB memory internally, whereas the later unit has a plug-in 4MB memory.

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

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

Bernina 180 with Firmware 2.08 - can it run DesignerPlus 5 or 6?


You will need to update the software in the machine, to a min of version 3.08 this can be done at BERNINA dealer (usually free of charge) once this is complete you designer will fully be compatible. WHEN YOU TAKE YOUR MACHINE IN TO BE UPDATE DO NOT FORGET TO TAKE THE EMBROIDERY UNIT IN AS WELL AS IT CONTAINS ITS OWN SOFTWARE

Machine says that I don't have an embroidery hoop attached, but I do.


First turn off and disconnect embroidery unit and hoop from the machine. Plug machine back in and connect the embroidery unit only and turn the machine on. Reattach the hoop and test to make sure it's secure. Your hoop might not have been attached snuggly enough or you might need to put on the small hoop.
