Question about Bernina Sewing Machines

1 Answer

Bernina Updates I have an Artista 200E upgraded to 730. The seller says I have the 4.51 firmware in it already. My Bernina Instructor says I don't. For $59. bucks an hour she will put this software in. Also if I let her touch it I void the rest of my warranty with the seller. The seller also says not to believe her and that it sounds fishy to him.I called Bernina Tech and Software Support they said they are not trained in the use of of their machines, just software.(spoke to someone @1-866-223-6943) He did tell me what screen to go to, but was still unable to confirm. He said go to another Bernina Dealer to answer my question!!! Does anyone know the correct answer to this? Just want to make sure I got what I paid for without voiding my warranty.

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.

My Bernina 730 has a message (Check hook System). Do I need to take in in for service? Can I continue to use it?

Don't be dictated to by computerized machine, as long as you keep the raceway clean and a few drops of oil and it sews okay then you will be okay

Hi I am looking for the software for a bernina artista 170 Artlink CPS special edition 2000 Platinum edition. I Just bought it and the software is for a older computer and I need the software for windows...

I would go to the bernina website and see if any upgrades/updates are available. Most sewing manufacturers have these available for free. Phone a friendly dealer too.

Can you upgrade Bernina artisa designer plus embroidery software to version 5?

The Bernina site has the official downloads of software updates and upgrades which are available. The site needs your specific ino, which I don't have, so I am directing you to their site.

I did find several warnings regarding using other downloaded software for Bernina machines.

Good Luck!
