Bernina Artista 200E

I was wondering if there was a way that I could find out how many hours are on my Bernina Artista 200E. I know the technicians can check it, but I didn't know if it was something I can find out myself.

    Hi. My Bernina Artista 165 touchscreen is not working properly. The buttons take more and more pressure to work, and then stop working completely. Then after sitting for bit they will work again, but not well.

200E freezes up

A 200e that locks up usually need a memory and a firmware upgrade. The original 200's only have 32mb of internal memory. The upgraded mini print board that is used in the 730 has 64mb of memory. This 64mb board was used in the 200 as a upgrade and this stopped the lock up problem. Also over the years Bernina has improved the firmware and this also cures the lock up problem. The latest and probably last firmware version for the 200e is version 5, also called the cutwork version. The easiest thing for you to do would be to take your 200 to a dealer and have them install a 64mb mini print board and also upgrade your machines firmware to the latest version 5. Also if you have loaded embroidery designs in your machine, remove them as they use up the machines memory. When you get too many designs loaded even if you have a 64 MB board in your machine you can still have lockup problems.

Trying to find the machine hours on a Artista 180E

Take it to a Bernina service technician and have them tell you. Access to that side of the service program will void your warranty, this is a very very bad place you don't want to be. There are several features with no more then symbols in this menu that can cause big problems. It would be like me giving you the information to the computer in your car...
