Question about Husqvarna Designer I
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....
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.

Tips for a great answer:
C. POSITION OF TOUCH PANEL
The deviation of the liquid crystal display and touch panel should be within 1 mm when the touch
panel is pressed.
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
