I suspect you have a loose power plug inside on the circuitboard. Take it to the dealership. Or risk static shock to the circuitboard by not grounding yourself when taking the one screw out the back, popping off the board and checking the plugs.

Bernina 180 sewing machine 'died'. Was sewing - everything OK. Stopped to turn material, looked away, and when I turned back, screen, machine, everything was dead. Power source is OK. Exchanged cord -...

Hi, sorry to say but very rarely is it the fuse when this happens. You can unscrew the one screw on the ouside and pop the cover open. (carefull as there are wires attached and make sure you are grounded or have discharged any static from yourself).
The fuse will be self-evident but I suspect you will need a visit to your Bernina dealership for a new circuitboard.

Bernina 440 QE -- Freezing with blank display

Definatly it is an electronic issue. Have the cables checked to be sure there weren't any pinched between the covers etc. And that the plugs on them are seated properly. This they should do naturally. I have also seen this before when what is called the EEPROM chip went bad. Screen lit, no info. The EEPROM is a small chip, black and rectangular on the S-Print board,The EEPROM stores all the information for the machine to work. The screen will light but no info on the screen if its bad. Before replacing a whole circuitboard I would suggest replacing this. It just plugs and unplugs from the S-Print and much less expensive.
If your not feeling all that trustworthy if the tech can do it then ask that it be sent to Bernina in Illinois and repaired. It could take 6 weeks though.

Bernina Artista 180 won't power on

There is a fuse inside but the fact that it even lights up shows the fuse is ok. I really think you are looking at a new L- print (circuitboard). Whatever the issue it is an electronic problem. So it certainly sounds like you will need to take it to a Bernina tech. Possibly there is still a warranty or else it will not be inexpensive.
