Automatic Threading not working

I am having huge problems with the automatic threading on my Brother Innovis 4000D. Besides not going thru the needle 50% of the time( even though I have tried leaving some loose thread) , the other 50% it wont even hook up in the slot where you bring it down to cut the thread off. I have also had problems with the tension. A friend told me to remove the cover and use the thread guide on the external cotton stand and also use one of the bobbin thread guides and then drop the machine tension to -2, which I have done and I now have lovely tension when embroidering ( ie: no bobbin thread coming to the top)Hers is working fine with that also.

    The automatic threader on my Brother machine doesn't work. I've had it fixed and shortly thereafter it doesn't work again. Can anyone tell me how to fix it myself? Thanks..

    My machine has the drop in cartridge for the thread and suppose to automaticly thread the needle this has never worked and the machine is a nightmare to thread. Can anyone give me instructions on threading this machine manually the instruction book is poorly written and useless for this purpose.

I just bought a gently used Innovis 4000d which came with a flash drive. 1st my computer will not recognize it when plugged in, 2nd when its plugged into machine it says to "Load USB media". Help

Unfortunately, you are missing some software. You need the original PE-Design software CD. Then you can install the Upgrade software from https://support.brother.com/g/b/downloadtop.aspx?c=us&lang=en&prod=hf_inov4000deus for your OS version. Until this software is installed, the computer will not find the driver for the sewing machine. The driver is not available from Windows Update.

The USB drive may have new firmware that wasn't properly installed. To load firmware, insert the USB drive when the sewing machine is off. Then press and hold the Automatic Threading button while you turn on the sewing machine. Follow the directions on the screen (see the manual on page 224: https://download.brother.com/welcome/doch000013/nv4000ug04en.pdf ) . Turn off the sewing machine and then remove the USB drive before sewing.

I hope this helps.

What memory stick will work on a innovis 4000d brother embroidery machine

Most memory sticks will work, but the smaller capacity sticks work the best.

If your stick has a lot of designs on it, the machine must read all the designs before bringing up any on the screen. Only keep a few on a tick at a time.

Can't seem to thread the machine properly so's I can use twin needle and pin tuck foot. Keeps de-activating the machine, so obviously not threading it properly, but can't understand the instruction book.

when you insert the twin needles, & add the 2nd spool of thread,, you just thread the machine the same way as with a single needle,,
that's what I do & it works just fine
