Husqvarna Designer II screen flickers Help
Hi there sewing palls!

im haveing Trouble with my designer II Machine
The screen is glitching out flickering and has patches of black. I left it alone for a few days and then just turned it on and it was fine Until about 20min in to sewing then the screen began to go patchy again. Has anyone else had this problem? Iíve taken the machine apart and checked to make sure all the connections are tight and they seem to be. Any idea are much appreciated!

You aren't getting any replies because your machine is newer than most of us play with. We mostly do non-electronic machines. I would suggest you consider taking it in for service. I am an electronics dullard, but what you describe might mean something is heating up and starting to fault when it gets hot.

Another suggestion is that you look on facebook for a group of Husqvarna users.

Sorry I couldn't help.

Welcome to the board sofer. Bk is right My Husqvarna is so old that Husqvarna wont't even acknowledge it. It is industrial. Sitting by a full sized Singer for comparison.

My Husqvarna dealer told me they support the machines for 20 years after they discontinue making them because they can't afford to keep making the parts any more after that. People tend to upgrade by then. I have the Designer Topaz 20 and they no longer send along the updates for it.

It sounds to me that your Mother Board may be failing, but to know for sure it needs to go in for a service.

The conglomerate that currently owns the Husqvarna/Viking name hasn't owned it for even 20 years yet. The word on the street is that parts support will be short-lived but there is no history yet. My experience with the old trusted names that got sucked up by large conglomerqates isn't good. (I've worked on both ends). The Singer-Pfaff-Viking brands are affected by this purchase and I wouldn't expect to get parts much after a model is dis-continued. With the dealer network eroding for these brands, parts supplies for repairs for current models is reported to be taking a lonngg time.

and, of course, if parts aren't available it is easier for sales folk to say. "You need to buy a new one.."
