Dls8864's suggestion was a very good suggestion - make sure the metal stitch plate is pushed all the way to the back. Also make sure that the thread is feeding freely - if it is catching on something it can cause the needle to be pulled aside and make it break. Does the design fit properly inside the hoop you are using? If the foot and/or needle strike against the side of the hoop, that will cause a breakage. Is the bobbin thread okay - not making a bird's nest underneath?

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.
