Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

I have a fairly new Bernina 440 sewing computer machine with embroidery module. While working on an embroidery project, I had a thread break. Fixed it and rethreaded the machine. Now the machine will complete 45 stitches and then I hear the "broken thread" alarm again and it stops. There's no thread break, though. Does this every 45 stitches. I called the dealer and she said to check a spring on the take-up arm. I did that, but it didn't help. Any ideas? Thanks, Diane

It sounds like something in the controls loop got out of sync and made the thread break semi-permanent; try single-stepping and backscrolling through the stitches, and see if it can't memorize success instead.

   If you can skip that item for now; surely power cycling or resetting the thing, running self-test or updating its firmware can remedy the situation?

Did you recently break a needle while using the embroidery machine? Check for foreign objects (like part of a broken needle) in the rotary hook. Then press Set to reset the machine. Remember to turn off the machine and then unplug it before doing any maintenance. If there are no obvious foreign objects, the rotary hook may have been damaged by a bent needle. It may need to be replaced.

I hope this helps.

How do I transfer design pictures from my PC to my flash card. The flash card will hold embroidery designs for use in my embroidery sewing machine


The flash drive/card will appear in the display from "My Computer"
The way to copy files from PC to flash drive is the usual "select" (with a Left-click), then
drag-and-drop paradigm of Windows.

You can create directories/subdirectories on the flash drive if you need/want them too.

It sounds like you are trying to download the wrong version of software. If your machine runs x86 (32bit) operating system, then x64 (64bit) software will not work. Contact the company who makes the software and ask them for a download location for the 32bit version.

Hope this helps

Old Dell Omniplex pci communication serial port needs driver


Go to the Dell support website http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/
Put in your service tag # (it is usually located on a little barcode sticker on the back of your machine). It does not matter if your machine is out of warranty or not. This is one of the reasons I like DELL. DELL has drivers for their machines that go back 10 years or more. I have never had a problem getting them from the website. When you see the downloads that you need download the ones that say driver. You may have to download the chipset driver also. When you do download the drivers and it asks you for the filename to save it as I find that it helps to add a name to the dell #'s to describe the driver so that it looks something like R264710video. Once you download them and transfer them to your computer they should install themself in the correct location (you just have to double-click on the .exe file and answer the prompts (if any)). Let us know if this helps.

Feed dogs won't go up on my Babylock Ellegant


the thread may be jammed beneath the feet and you can't see this from your view. take the feet off and you'll probably discover the beginning of the thread jam. Use patience getting the thread out. It is better to cut than pull (that'll leave just enough behind to start another jam and then it'll be time for a break)

I am trying to send patterns from my computer to my Bernina Artista 180 and I keep getting the message (serial port engaged) ans communications error. I am musing windows xp PLEASE tell me what to do. ...


Does your bernina have a USB port or do you have a card reader? I have ran into this problem before. To use the patterns off of the computer, they have to be in a format that your embroidery machine can read. The only way I have found to do it, is use a card reader plugged into a USB port on the computer and it transfers files that wayinto a format the Bernina will read and be able to embroider from. Good Luck. Win XP started this problem and unfortunately, Vista hasn't fixed it.
