Wrong hoop display

My machine shows I have attatched the wrong hoop, which I have not. I tried to fool it by taking it off and then on again. It refuses to sew though I sewed this project yesterday with the same hoop and it worked very well. How do I bypass the wrong hoop display?

    Machine very hot. The power kept going off and on. Turned off to let it rest and now it is telling me I have the wrong hoop, which I don't. I have this design I just need to finish and I supposedly saved it from the machine to my disk, but its not on the disk. Uggghh.

If you haven't already done so, download the latest update for the Designer 1 and install it. 2.22 is the latest. Your current software version is in the lower right corner of the display when the machine is first turned on. It only shows for a short time so be ready when you turn it on.
If you have one of the last few versions, the embroidery unit will calibrate by moving the arm to the right and the hoop holder moves away from you, then back part way to the left and the holder will move back toward you and you will then hear a "grunting" sound as the holder moves slightly forward and back to finish verifying its position. If the arm fails to move from side to side or the holder doesn't move forward and back, the embroidery unit may not be fully connected to the machine so turn the machine off, slide the unit 2-3 inches to the left and firmly reconnect it and try again.
You can't bypass the "wrong hoop" display. We just have to convince the machine that you have the correct hoop installed. Let me know how it goes.

When I install embroidery hoop light keeps blinking n saying wrong hoop size looked it up n it's saying malfunction


Ok, there are a couple of possibilities, and I'm going to include an image. I"m not sure whether you're trying to use the small or large hoop, but the first thing you should try is turn off the machine, take the hoop off entirely, then turn on the machine without anything and let it reset to its default position, which will be the center. If it has a problem there, make sure the needle it at its highest position.

Next, put the large hoop on, bring up a design, (preferably a design that came with your machine--there are sample designs in the \Library directory where the program is--that's generally in c:\program files\futuraquartet--and is designed for the hoop you're trying to use, and transmit to machine. If it tells you the hoop is the wrong size, download a patch from www.futura-support.com. If it STILL tells you you have the wrong size, reseat your USB cable into the machine and tape it in place with masking or duct tape.

The third possibility--and the one pictured in the photo I'm going to attach--is there is a tab on your hoop which indicates the hoop size, and your TAB may be off. It needs to be dead center of the sensor, which is also pictured. A while ago a BUNCH of hoops were manufactured with the tabs slightly off, and if it's off, your machine can't read the size. What generally happens there, though, is it will indicate that there is NO hoop attached, rather than the wrong size.

You can see the sensors--they're inside the arm where you put your hoop, and they're not covered up. Below it are the large hoop (top), and small hoop (bottom). The hoop tabs have to match up to the sensors exactly, and you'll be able to see if it doesn't by matching up the notch in the hoop that matches the catch in the embroidery arm.

My mega hoop is on, but the screen keeps telling me the color block is not allowed on both sides how do I get it to go???


I have a Designer Diamond, and I experienced the same error message of "color block not allowed on both sides of hoop". I was trying to resume my project a day later, and received this message when I attached the hoop. I made several attempts to fix this problem and get rid of the error message to no avail. Finally I just checked the hoop size on the screen of the machine and noticed it was showing the wrong size hoop attached! I picked the correct size for the hoop I had attached, and viola! - message gone! and I was able to continue on with my project!

Make sure you have the latest software version. Current version you may check in About dialog under Help submenu and in the same submenu you wil find a function Live Update.
Also make sure you switch on the sewing machine either with the large hoop connected or without hoop. If sewing machine was switched on with the small hoop attached, it will provide this error message about wrong hoop.

I have the quilters 150x150 hoop and I need an update to use it, the button on my embroidery machine is grey I think it needs to be dark blue


Dark grey, actually, but you don't need the upgrade. Set the hoop size at the machine for the 150 x 240 hoop and the 150 x 150 hoop will work. Just be sure that the design starts in the centre i.e. don't move it up or down at the machine Embroidery screen. Before you begin sewing, check that the design will fit in the hoop without bumping the sides of the hoop. Use the Check Size button which is on the second screen of the Embroidery Screen (touch More on bottom right of first screen). The Check Size button is the one on the bottom right - the first button to the left of "More". Touch it once, hoop moves to top left of design; touch again hoop moves to bottom left of design; again hoop moves to bottom right; again hoop moves to top right.

Make yourself a note so that when you next take your D1 in for its regular service, get the hoop upgrade done at the same time. You need to have at least version 2.1 of the machine software installed - your tech. can do this for you too. It is a really minor adjustment so should not add much to the service cost. Be sure to take the embroidery unit in too when you go for the service.

You definitely need to take that in for service. The machine has a feature that lets it know which hoop is on the machine so is can't sew outside the hoop area, so if it does, you'll need a technician to make it right.

DISNEY BROTHER SE-270D COMPUTER SEWING & EMBRIODERY


but is the carriage moving,? if not disconnect and try to connect again, the embroidery hoop holder usually moves to check itself, if it still does the same thing the connection that goes onto the machine is not making a proper connection, I also had this problem, with a 2100 brother , I fixed it by using a crochet hook and just tightening the connection that connects to the machine on the embroidery unit, but tread very carefully it just takes a slight move. if this fails it will have to be adjusted cost is usually $100au

Embroidery unit


Do you have a hoop already on when you first re-calibrate the embroidery arm? You need the embroidery arm ONLY when you first turn on. Don't put the hoop on until you are ready to start embroidering. If this is not the problem, try re-loading the machine operating system. If you did not save your floppy or USB file, go to Husqvarna website and download the latest one, and re-load it. (Be sure to select the correct file for your particular machine i.e. floppy or USB.)
