Question about Husqvarna Designer I

1 Answer

My Designer 1 screen is blank.

I have a problem with my designer 1 and the screen. I just had it looked at and repaired recently due to lines running through the screen. They said it was the transformer and replaced it. After 4 weeks without my machine I finally get it back and now my screen is blank. There is a back light but nothing on the screen. What could the problem be now?

Phone the technician who worked on your machine previously and tell him/her what has happened. It would appear that the repair was not done properly. Make sure they understand the inconvenience they have put you to and ask can they effect the repairs as quickly as possible.

Husqvarna designer 1 lost mains lead


Call your local husqvarna sewing machine dealer. If they don't have one they might be able to offer an aftermarket alternative.

My D1 still runs designs from a floppy. I have the 4D software. What computer extension do I need to save my designs to, in order for the sewing machine to be able to stitch them. So far I'm having no luck...


Your Designer 1 will read none of the file formats you listed. It uses .shv which is a special file type created just for the Designer 1. Some embroidery sellers offer this format, but most do not. You don't need the .shv if you have the 4D software. When you purchase designs, you can buy almost any format you want and your software will deal with it. Most Husqvarna Designer owners purchase designs in .vp3 or .pes format. Avoid .art designs.

You need to set up your software using the Configure module. You can access this either by locating your 4D software folder on your hard drive - in that folder there should be an .exe called Configure - or use a link in your normal 4D screen once you open the program. Look for the icon along the top that looks like a screwdriver and pliers (or something like that). In Configure use the Send 1 tab to tell your software that you have a floppy disk Designer 1.

When you want to load designs for your sewing machine, open 4D Disk Manager (it will be in the drop-down Accessories box using the arrow beside the Configure button). You need to have the correctly formatted floppy disk in your computer's floppy disk drive. If you don't have one, you can format a blank one from within the Disk Manager module. Most importantly if you are using a floppy that already has been used in your Designer 1, you need to use the Read Disk icon along the top. The designs already on your floppy are read into the program. You can then add whatever designs you want by using the Open (icon showing an open manilla folder) or View (looks like a blue camera) buttons. Then you choose the Write Disk button to put not only your newly added designs on the floppy disk, but to also put back the ones that were already on it. Click "Yes" when asked if you want to erase designs already on the disk. It is quite safe provided you read the disk into Disk Manager first, as described above.

Can i tell when a viking designer 1 was made by the serial number? recently put one on layaway and would like to know when it was made. serial number is 52003189


I really don't know the answer to that. Have you tried to Google for an answer? There are some tell-tale markings on the models that will help to narrow it down. For instance mine is one of the earlier models and has "Designer 1" written directly below the screen. Later models moved that wording up above the screen. Later still models had "ESS" added. I would need to look at my HV magazines to track down when these changes occurred, so write back with a description of where your decals are. If your machine is on layaway with a HV dealer, they should be able to give you a ball park estimate of its age. Phone and ask them - if they can't/won't tell you, ask them to describe to you where the decals are (I'm guessing you would not have made a note of this before the machine was put aside for you).

Viking designer 1 screen crack can't use touch screen sensor not working due to crack. can it be repair and how much would it cause me.


The touch screen can be replaced. The part is a little under $200 and the labor cost will vary with the repair facility that you use.

See an authorized dealer.

Designer 1 touch screen freezes


Static Electricity and Designer 1:
The designer 1 is susceptible to static electricity. They sell static removers for electronics. Try that 1st. Don’t spray your machine, just the rag and wipe the machine. Endust for electronics makes a pump spray and you can even use it on the screen (DONT spray the screen). Then try to recalibrate the screen in the set menu. If you can’t get into the set menu keep trying until you can otherwise, there is a way to get into the service mode to set it.

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.

Buying a used Husqvarna Rose or what other recommendation?


The Designer 1 technology is far more superior to the Rose. The Rose technology is so far behind that you can not update the software any more. The Designer 1 comes now with a USB stick, and you can download unlimited designs from the internet and transfer to your machine.

The Rose is a very good machine but you will be limited in the use of the machine.

If you can afford it buy the Designer 1
