This will happen if you wind your bobbin at full speed. The thread wraps around the center of the bobbin too tightly and causes it to close tight around the winder. Most times if you take off part of the thread you can get it off. But you can prevent this from happening next time by winding more slowly.
My Viking Rose bobbin winder wont release my bobbin. This is the second time this has happened with the same bobbin, and I got it off the first time by gently manipulating the bobbin. It was full of thread so I decided to use it and then dispose of the empty bobbin. Well, you can imagine what happened! When it was empty, I, of course, forgot and put it right back on the winder. What do I do?

If it's a Huskylock Serger it means the machine is in a "bind," possibly think fabric, etc. The motor is "overloaded" and shuts down. If it continues after serving for a short time on normal fabric the motor needs to be rebuilt or replaced. See a local Viking Service Tech for repair or motor replacement.
If it is a Sewing/Embroidery Machine it may still be an issue with the motor but could also be the main control board or power supply. Again see a local Viking Service tech for repair.

It sounds as if you have gotten hit with an energy spike. I make sure I unplug all of my sewing machines at night for this reason. But let's try a few things.
You said that if you place your hand where the USB goes, it flickers. What happens when you grasp and gently wiggle the USB when it is plugged in? Does it still flicker? If it does it makes me think there is a short or bad ground and needs service by a qualified professional. (basically you are becoming the ground when you touch there.)
Is there any screen brightness adjustment knob that perhaps got moved, bumped or turned by curious little fingers?
I think your best bet considering the value of your machine is to take it in for servicing.
I am having the same problem with my SE. It recently started doing that. Sometimes it would come on, sometimes not - just flicker. I haven't been able to get it to turn on for 2 weeks now. I earn $ with my machine, so I am really upset! No Vik dealer around to get it fixed either...
Ooops...it sounds like a board has gone bad. There must be something metal loose inside the machine to cause a short like that. You need to find an authorized Viking dealer to assist you. The boards have a 5 year warranty, maybe you will fit into that period. It's probably best no to mention that an object in the machine caused the problem.
Mine does the exact same thing. I think the problem might lie in the cord to the foot pedal. The cord packs into the foot pedal for storage, which forces the cord to to remain bent during storage. I believe the wires in mind became damaged and broken so I took it apart and reconnected the wires at the spot where the connector meets with the wires. But I still don't leave it plugged in if I'm not using it, it could be a fire hazard.
