Hi Jayn.

First check to see if your Husqvarna is still under warranty. If so take it in to the dealer for service.

I just did a little research and found that a recall was issued for some Designer 1s for power supplies overheating. The information on that is found here....

and here....

For additional information, please contact Husqvarna Viking at (800) 446-2333 between 9:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. ET Monday through Friday.

It sounds as if you have gotten hit with an energy spike. I make sure I unplug all of my sewing machines at night for this reason. But let's try a few things.

You said that if you place your hand where the USB goes, it flickers. What happens when you grasp and gently wiggle the USB when it is plugged in? Does it still flicker? If it does it makes me think there is a short or bad ground and needs service by a qualified professional. (basically you are becoming the ground when you touch there.)

Is there any screen brightness adjustment knob that perhaps got moved, bumped or turned by curious little fingers?

I think your best bet considering the value of your machine is to take it in for servicing.

How do i do a screen calibration on a PC-8500 sewing/embroidery machine?


C. POSITION OF TOUCH PANEL

STANDARD

The deviation of the liquid crystal display and touch panel should be within 1 mm when the touch

panel is pressed.

ADJUSTMENT

1. Turn on the power switch while holding down the start/stop button, backtack button, and

NP button simultaneously.

2. While holding down the start button, press the + positions 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 on the screen in

order. If the buzzer sounds once when 5 is pressed, the position is okay. If the buzzer

sounds several times, the position is erroneous; therefore, adjust again. (When pressing

the screen, use a pencil (or match) with a round tip.)

3. Turn on the power again, and confirm that the screen display and touch panel positions
match.

The touch screen of my Bernina 580 stopped working today and it was perfectly OK yesterday. Is there a way to fix it on my own or should I look for help?


Calibrate the diplay
The Display calibration can be opened as follows:
- turn off the sewing-/embroidery computer
- touch the two needle positioning buttons on the front panel and keep them pressed
- turn on the sewing-/embroidery computer and release the buttons as soon as the Display appears
- touch the calibration icon
- touch the center of the cross using the touch pen
-- the cross moves to the next position
- repeat this until all three positions shown are calibrated
-- the Display is closed
-- the adjustment is saved

Make sure the embroidery unit is plugged in securely. If it is only a tiny bit out of its socket, the machine will behave erratically. Also ALWAYS "park" the embroidery arm before removing it by pressing the Needle Down button. Do this before you turn the power off when you are done embroidering. If the arm is not in the correct position when you plug it in (i.e. has NOT been parked) then it won't calibrate properly. I believe you can manually move the arm into the parked position. It's not something I would want to do myself but if you are really stuck it might be worth trying. You need to exert quite a bit of force. Also be sure to remove any hoops before you "park" and remove the embroidery unit.

Can you access the Menus properly when the embroidery unit is not on the machine? If you can, recalibrate the touch screen by going to the Set menu, scrolling through the "More" pages until you find "Calibrate Touch Screen Adjust". Use your stylus or the blunt end of a machine needle to touch exactly in the centre of the crosses, starting at No.1. It will turn green then do No.2 and exit the screen (OK) without touching anything else.

If you can make the machine work, try doing a different embroidery - there may be a problem with that particular one. If you cannot get it to work properly, it will need to be seen by a repair technician, sorry.

How do I find out the embroidery time on my Viking Designer 1 sewing machine?


Hi there, If your trying to find out how long it took you to embroider something, You need to go to your touch screen menu- touch Set- then down at the bottom left of this screen and touch More- three (3) times you'll get to where it says Running time:(It's the 3rd Selection) There it will actually show you the total running time (Sewing and Embroidery If you haven't zeroed it out by hitting the zero (0) next to that selection.) You can do this on the touch screen with the embroidery unit on or off. You need to touch the zero (0) to zero out your time before you start an embroidery project. Once you've done this and you've finished an embroidery you can check how long it took by the touch screen menu- Set- touch More 3 times and there you will see how long on the Running time it took to embroider your design. I hope that helped. The total time your machine has ran (Embroidery and Sewing) is kept in Memory on the Service Screen that your Technician gets into when he services your machine. So your not actually wiping out that. The Set menu is just for you to keep track of how long your machine sews or embroiders something pretty much. I hope that helped you out with your question. Happy Sewing!! Kathy

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.

Babylock Ellure Embroidery Unit Malfunction


You need to make sure that the embroidery arm is able to move freely be sure that it has no obstructions like a wall behind your sewing table or fabric that may be stacked nearby. If all is clear you probably have thread wrapped somewhere inside the embroidery unit it only take a little bit to jam up the works. You can try to take off the cover by flipping the unit over and removing the screws to the embroidery arm. I would take it to the shop where you bought it they should be able to help you for free if it is new. If you have the original packaging you can send the machine to Steve's at www.stevessewandvac.com just send them an email they can help.

Yes, I have a solution for this problem. Your screen needs to be recalibrated and you can do it yourself. Don't you wish they would just tell you this stuff instead of charging you an arm and a leg? Here's what to do: Before turning on the machine, press the start/stop button, the reverse button, and the needle position button all at once with one hand (one finger on each button). Hold them down and turn on the machine. What will come up is a recalibration screen. You will see the numbers 1-5 with a little plus sign beside them. Find a small blunt object (I used the tip of a mechanical pencil with the lead in instead of out) and while holding the start/stop button, touch the plus sign beside 1-5 in numerical order. Then, turn the machine off and on again in the normal way. This should recalibrate the screen. Pass it along, people! This is something no one should have to pay for!
