    Hi, I hope you get the message. I tried what you said but I can't get the crosses to turn green--nothing happens when i touch them with the stylus. Is there anything more you can tell me that will help me. The touch screen appears to be frozen. I can't select anything from the touchscreen

My Designer 1 sewing machine touch screen is frozen and won't calibrate or respond to touching. This is intermittent behavior. Sometimes it works, and sometimes not. Can you tell me what this is


Sounds to me like the plug-in connector from the screen is not firmly attached to the motherboard (directly behind the screen but inside the machine). This kind of problem doesn't take a factory trained technician. Ask various sewing machine dealers to whom they subcontract cleaning and adjustment. Ask people who sew whether they have the name of a repair person. Taking apart the machine and replugging the connection should be all of a 15 minute job.

Hi Can u please tell me how to calibrate my Designer 1? Have not done it for a few years and now I've forgotten. Also my touch screen is only partially responding....I'm not getting any response...


Hi Vina, Since you can't get any response to your Menu-Norm-Prog-Rep-Set-or Help on your touch screen but you can get into your stitches, It does sound like you need to re-calibrate your touch screen. Normally you would get into your Set Menu to access your touch screen calibration. But as suggested on another solution. You turn off your Des 1, Holding in the reverse button (bottom left of the eight buttons) and the pivot button (the second one from the bottom of the four buttons) at the same time and turn on your machine. This is the Service menu that pops up (try not to touch anything on this screen, it could really mess things up if you don't know what you are doing) After this screen pops up go over to the eight buttons on the far left of your machine and touch the needle up, needle down button (top right button of the eight) the Calibration Screen will pop up on your touch screen (two plus marks labeled 1 & 2) In your sewing sitting position touch the center of the #1 mark and then the #2 mark. Once you've done that the Service Screen will pop back up. Shut off your Des 1 and restart it normally. Try getting into your different menus- Menu-Norm-Prog Etc. Hopefully that fixed your Calibration issue! ** Note: If the service menu doesn't pop up when trying to hold in these 2 buttons together and turning on your Des 1 the buttons weren't held in properly and you need to turn it off and try it again. Hopefully that helped you out!! Happy Sewing!! Kathy

Original designer I and the touch screen is frozen.


The front cover will have to be removed to access the componets to find the problem... it could be as simple as a loose connection or as complicated as having to replace the touch screen. Removing the front cover is not a simple task if you do not have experience in working on this machine. I would suggest it go in to 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.

Designer 1 touch screen freezes


You probably have the old-style touch panel which is known to fail. Viking has a five year warranty on electronics but sometimes they will cover this particular part beyond the five years. If you find a sympathetic dealer you may be able to get the part for free. You will need to pay for the labor though.

Good luck!

Screen is frozen


Are you saying that nothing at all happens every time, or sometimes you get the wrong thing i.e. you touch Prog and Rep screen comes up? Have you ever recalibrated your screen? This should be done regularly - at least every six months, but I do mine monthly. The catch is that in order to do this, you need to access the Set Menu and if your screen is not responding at all this would be impossible. In the Set Menu on the last page (I think) there is a "Color Touch Screen Adjust" button. Use this to access the calibration screen, and you must touch exactly in the centre of the two crosshairs until they turn green. Instructions are on Page 31 of my manual.
