Question about Singer CE-200 Quantum Futura Computerized Sewing Machine

1 Answer

Embroidery centering I just recently got the Singer CE-200. I am having problems in getting it to center the images on the hoop. It wants to sew more to the right. Some images are destored because of this. I tried the center feature in options but it did not change. Wondering what I am doing wrong?

From my experience with this machine it is not a problem with the machine itself, but a software issue. Maybe your computer is not compatible. My first suggestion is to try to uninstall AND completely remove ALL programs related to Futura. Then restart your computer. Now re-install ONLY the main program. See if this works. Do not get frustrated, this machine usually takes awhile to figure out. Training is important for 100% success. Good luck!

When I thread the bobbin, code 88 flashes, what is that?

Try zero your embroidery hoop carriage by off/on your machine before your next application, if no result disconect your embroidery unit and connect back again ensuring it is properly connected. Hope the problem can be solved.

Hoop doesn't center

The needle does not center when you have selected a design to stitch-out?

There is a FAQ for Futuras at the Singer Company website that may be of more help.

Futura CE-200 Stops in middle of design and says wrong hoop size

Dear cjnations
Firstly we must all remember that the CE200 is a very particular machine and requires that you follow certain procedures in order for it to run smoothly. When using the small hoop, firstly you must make sure that the small hoop is selected on the screen by going to Tools, Select Hoop & clicking on small frame. Once this has been done and the design selected, you must then attach the small hoop before sending the design to the machine. If you attach the hoop after sending the design, the machine will give you the error message.
Good Luck!

Errors

Wow, I finally get to have a solution.
1. Turn the machine off.
2. Remove the hoop.
3. CAREFULLY slide the bar on the embroidery unit to the left.
4. CAREFULLY slide the piece where the hoop attaches toward you.
5. Turn on the sewing machine. The machine should take the unit to "standby" with a click.
6. Attach the hoop with the power on.
7. Exit the Futura software.
8. Restart the software.
This "should" fix the problem, however, you may have to repeat this process more than once to get it to "stick".

Singer futura ce-200 problem, pattern mis-alignment

I have had similar problems in the past.
Do you hear a noise from the embroidery unit when the misalignment occurs ? If so, I suspect that your issue may be that you have some resistance under the hoop. Is there extra material that may be rubbing on the machine or catching somewhere. I have found that if I use some masking tape to keep all of the extra material from hitting any other parts of the machine or dragging under the edge of the hoop this error does not occur. FYI: I also stopped using the "optimize stitch speed" option at the same time. I believe that material dragging was causing the problem, but I still wonder about the stitch speed optimization feature.

Centering the starting point

Unfortunately you can't. It is imposible to move the neddle because of the machine limitation. It will only move to the starting point according to your design.

Carriage not returning

Dear Netter - I too have a CE-200 Quantum Futura Sewing/Embroidery Machine. I have run into similar problems. I have tried the various things suggested: remove hoop, turn off machine, turn on machine, replace hoop. However, often the carriage does not return to the initial location (carriage all the way to the left, mounting plate all the way to the bottom, closest to the user). I have found that with the gradual application of force, I can pull the mounting plate all the way to the bottom of the carriage. I turn off the machine before I do this. I have not tried to move the carriage to the right or left; I have not had to. Sometimes when I turn the machine on, it beeps steadily (more than the usual 3 or so complaints). But when I turn it off and on again, eventually it is ready to continue embroidery. By doing this, I may be causing damage to the machine or making the warranty void. If you do it, you may face the same problems. Or it may make your machine into an expensive paperweight. I can't offer you a complete solution for your problem, but I hope this helps.
