Question about Husqvarna Designer I

1 Answer

My touch screen on my Designer 1 is off-kilter. You touch to the right to get the left box to work. For example, if I use the first stitch I touch the second stitch. The touch also does not work well with the stick and my finger has to press a bit harder than it should. It was overhauled before it was given to me and it has been like this since I got it. It does work well, but I also cannot use the right side stitches or get to the next group of stitches.

You need to access the SET menu. Try pushing to the right of this in various spots and hopefully you will be able to get in to this menu. Then you need to keep hitting More until you get to "Colour touch screen adjust" . Select this (by trial and error - keep touching to the right of the square until it is selected). Now get your stylus and carefully press it directly in the centre of the crosshatches - first the one marked "1" - it should turn green - then the one marked "2" - it too will turn green. Your screen is now re-calibrated and you should be able to push the buttons and get the correct selection. If not, I think the machine should be seen by a technician. There may be problems either with the screen or the motherboard.

    Thank you so much. You have saved me plenty of money. Each time this would happen I would have to take the machine to a dealer and pay money to have the machine re-calibrated. The closest dealer is 40 miles away. I would have to make two trips. One to drop the machine off and another to pick it up plus the repair cost. I don't mind paying for periodic maintenence; however, it seemed that each time the machine was put away for any length of time between usages it needed to be re-calibrated. It would would be a nice sewing machine if it worked most of the time. I would never buy another Husqvarna product. Paid over $5,000.00+ for it and some of its "bells and whistles". It has never lived up to its purported abilities. I would like to use its basic functions and the re-calibration issue was making that impossible. Thanks again!

How do i remove the embroidery unit from the topaz 40


Do you mean the Husqvarna Designer Topaz 40? If so, first make sure that the unit is in Park. You need the sewing machine on to do this. Select the Park Position on the Embroidery Stitch-Out menu. This screen is accessed after you choose a design and press Go (at the bottom of the touch screen on the left). Then press the release button on the bottom of the left hand side of the embroidery unit.

The directions to remove the embroidery unit are in the manual on page 6:3 (page 69 of the PDF). The manual is available from the product page: http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/en-US/Machines/DESIGNER-TOPAZ-40 . Scroll down and look on the left side of the page. The direct link to the manual is http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/SiteMedia/Products/Machines/DESIGNER-TOPAZ-40/Manual/Topaz40-manual-EN.pdf .

I hope this helps.

How do we fix a repeating touch screen on a Janome 5700. The touch seems to be ok., but the display is not.


You might try recalibrating the screen. Short of that, could be a computer screen component is failing.

My husqvarna designer 1 keypad doesnt work


It could be the Touch Screen. If it is a Designer 1. If it is a Designer II or Quilt Designer or #1 it could be the Dcard. Recommend it be checked by an Authorized Viking Dealer.

Hi Can u please tell me how to calibrate my Designer 1? Have not done it for a few years and now I've forgotten. Also my touch screen is only partially responding....I'm not getting any response...


Hi Vina, Since you can't get any response to your Menu-Norm-Prog-Rep-Set-or Help on your touch screen but you can get into your stitches, It does sound like you need to re-calibrate your touch screen. Normally you would get into your Set Menu to access your touch screen calibration. But as suggested on another solution. You turn off your Des 1, Holding in the reverse button (bottom left of the eight buttons) and the pivot button (the second one from the bottom of the four buttons) at the same time and turn on your machine. This is the Service menu that pops up (try not to touch anything on this screen, it could really mess things up if you don't know what you are doing) After this screen pops up go over to the eight buttons on the far left of your machine and touch the needle up, needle down button (top right button of the eight) the Calibration Screen will pop up on your touch screen (two plus marks labeled 1 & 2) In your sewing sitting position touch the center of the #1 mark and then the #2 mark. Once you've done that the Service Screen will pop back up. Shut off your Des 1 and restart it normally. Try getting into your different menus- Menu-Norm-Prog Etc. Hopefully that fixed your Calibration issue! ** Note: If the service menu doesn't pop up when trying to hold in these 2 buttons together and turning on your Des 1 the buttons weren't held in properly and you need to turn it off and try it again. Hopefully that helped you out!! Happy Sewing!! Kathy

I have a designer 1 and when i select the option block that I want - i actually have to touch below it a whole block for it to register what I wanted!! Help!! We moved states away from where I bought it.


Do you mean that you can't select a stitch except by touching below that stitch instead of on it? If yes, then you need to re-calibrate your screen. It's easy! You should use your stylus for this, but if you have lost it use the blunt end of a machine needle instead.

Go into your SET menu, hit More twice - or until you see "Color Touch Screen Adjust" (it might depend on what version machine software you have loaded just which screen it is on). Click on this. (Keep touching below and around the button until you get it to respond.) Touch in the CENTER of cross 1 (upper left corner of screen). When the cross changes from black to green, the point is set. Do the same with cross 2 (lower right). Done!

Just be sure to touch ONLY THE CROSSES on that screen, except for OK when you are done.

Designer 1 Problem


Try touching around the button on the screen.  Touch above, below,left & right moving farther away from center. At some point it may clear. If so, use the same method to calibrate your touch screen in the "set" menu.  If not, go back to your repair facility and have them recalibrate in the service mode.

Viking Designer 1 won't embroider


I have seen some of the older style machines that are very susceptible to static charge. Usually this doesn't happen with newer ones. If you get static shocks on door knobs in your house, do not touch the screen of your machine with your finger. Use a stylus instead. You may also try touching the metal presser bar just above the foot and ankle when sitting down at the machine prior to using the screen. This should not be happening with a new machine. Check with your dealer.

Hi

Sounds like a screen calibration problem. Will need a dealer to check it and recal if required.
