    Bernina 830

    Hi K,

    I am Denise and I live in Toowoomba, Australia. I purchased my machine in Dubai and had a few quick lessons before moving to Aus. My machine was packed up for 2 yrs and when I unpacked it could remember very little. I worked my way through all the manuals and info available and then downloaded the software onto my computer.
    I am able to manipulate the designs and add to the designs. I need a lot of practice and any help I can get. The biggest porblem arrises when I want to transfer the designs to my machine. The software doesn't recognise the bernina 830. I have version 5. I did innitislly download SP2 as was required for the software to recognise the 830.
    On one occasion I was able to transfer designs as it gave me the option to transfer to the 830. Since then I have not been able to transfer anything, today it said "Bernina not responding"

    I am extremely frustrated and have called Bernina support with no response to my e-mail they asked me to write.
    i would very much appreciate any help I could get in regardsvto this matter.
    regards
    D

    I haven't tried using the cable, I always use the USB stick.
    Not sure which software you are using, but my steps for writing to the stick are -
    When you have the design in your software - Under file - click - save as
    in the window that opens - bottom
    Save as type
    select Bernina USB stick.exp

    You may have to format your USB stick. I didn't, but I know others have. I use a generic USB stick - not the Bernina branded one.

    Hope this helps and you are able to start having fun.

    What happened to Bernina customer service? It use to be one of the best. I'd sent them an email every day until I got a response and post everywhere that I was not being acknowledged by them.

    Over the last two years I have heard a lot of complaints about Bernina not responding at all to customers. I think some dealers are taking advantage of this and cutting corners on their customer service knowing Bernina isn't going to follow through with any complaints.
    Got fabric?

    Sorry I can't help as I am computer challanged and I don't know your machine. Hopefully one of the 830 owners on QB will respond. I do know there is a Bernina 830 Yahoo group on the net, maybe they can help too?

    Denise, I have had no problems transfering designs, but I use the free Artlink software. I can transfer to my USB with no issues. I don't have the fancy, purchased software that allows you to digitize etc, so I can't help you with the 5 version. However, there's a couple of free, yahoo groups that you can join and I know someone there can help you. You go to yahoo, click on groups and search for Bernina 830 and join the group. You can search messages and ask questions. Hope this helps you!

    She may be having time zone challenges and typically it takes businesses a few working days to respond.

    She called the support line. Her problem should have been addressed then not telling her to write and send in her question. Why have a phone support line? That doesn't make any sense at all for Bernina to do that to customers. They never use to be this way.

    Bernina 830

    Thank you so much for all your replies. I have tried the USB stick but my software doesn't send to it either. The frustrating part is that I have managedt to transfer some designs!

    In regards to customer service - there is none! I have called several Bernina dealers offering to travel to them, one said outright they don't have time to help me as they have their own customers. When I called the helpline I was told the application specialist would contact me - that was before Christmas. Still had no response.

    I will definitely get onto the yahoo group as well and see what I can find.

    Once again thank you. I have been considering getting rid of my Bernina as it is worthless if you can't get any help.
    Denise

    Hi, I am Linda and I own a Bernina 830 w/embroidery. I am sooo very sorry I bought this machine. I had the 730 and upgraded - UGH. So many problems, so many service calls. Can anyone help me with looping on embroidery. I have changed the tension on the screen - up, up, up then down, down, down. Still loops. Not always!! I have embroidered for years. Think I am good w/stabilizer types, same expensive bobbin thread, same poly embroid thread. It is the machine !!!!!! Anyone else have this ?????
