Re: MBX Cross Stitch add on question

Jim_Stutsman <jim@...>
 

Once you are inside the Cross Stitch option (File -> Cross Stitch) click the "Help -> Online Manual" menu option and it will open the manual in Adobe Reader, or whatever PDF reader you have installed. From there you can print it out. If you want the actual PDF file for printing at Kinko's or an office supply store, you can get it from this folder:
C: -> Program Files -> Janome -> Digitizer MBX -> BIN -> XDSGNED.PDF

Re: clunk

Jim_Stutsman <jim@...>
 

The "clunk" sound is normal, related to checking the bobbin. If the bobbin sensor were optical you wouldn't have the noise, but then it might not work when the bobbin area got linty.

Serger thread for piecing is not a great idea. It's fuzzy and makes a lot of lint, which will build up in the bobbin case tension area where it can eventually cause loss of tension. Superior makes a lot of different threads. What you want is called Bottom Line. It's a very strong polyester and it's also fine. More importantly, it's made from long fibers so it's smooth with very little lint.

Is there a way I can stop the clunk every time I start sewing after stopping and not raising the presser foot? I assume not but thought I'd ask. The more features you get, the more clunks you get!

Am using serger thread doing some piecing and the stitch isn't very good on the bottom. I bought some Superior Thread a few years ago and it broke as easy as serger thread so have been using serger thread sometimes for piecing. What do you think about serger thread for piecing? It's nice and thin to get an accurate seam allowance.

Re: MBX Problems!!!!! OOps

Jim_Stutsman <jim@...>
 

Ah, that's even better. There's nothing you can do in HorizonLink to mess up your computer. I'll be the first to admit that it's not the most user friendly program Janome's ever done, and you might find it to be user hostile to some extent. But it's also quite benign with regard to your computer, so there's not harm whatever in just firing it up and playing. You'll learn much doing this, and we're here to help if you get bogged down. Enjoy!

ROFL, all Scottish schools teach the Queens English, which is NOT the version coomonly known as Standard English. The closest example I can think of right now is the German, High German and Low German. The Scots still pronounce the H as in what, where, when, why, the English don't. But I will agree if you get a couple of Scots talking quickly in their local dialect, forget trying to understand it. Its usually a mix of gallic, English, colloquiel words and depending on their homeplace can be sharp and hard or soft and lilting. Then again I used to find it hard to tune into some Americans, and would get confused by things like sidewalk for pavement, creek for stream, yard for garden, its true we are divided by our shared language.

Re: MBX Problems!!!!!

Besides jims suggestions you might try downloading the latest Hasp (dongle) driver from Alladin (now safenet but still google alladin hasp driver) for some unknown reason Windows 7 can stop communicating with it. Check you have the latest drivers for your display card, even though your computer is fairly new, doesn't mean it shipped with all the latest drivers.
The message had a problem sending design to program isnt the problem it appears, just wait and the program will open with the design in the hoop, another Windows quirk, it wants the program to instantly react. It is a big program so takes time to open as it isnt just MBX opening but Corel as well, Win 7 doesnt allow for that so shoots up ''problem sending command to program.'' it's more impatient than we are.

Aaack!!! Your dealer did you no favors! The usual uninstall/reinstall shuffle should not be used with MBX. It will prevent the Corel option from reinstalling correctly. You may need help from Janome to get it reinstalled, as there are some internal Windows settings that need to be adjusted.

The sudden freezing up could be from many different things. If you've had your computer for a while (3 years or more) it could be overheating. This comes from accumulated dust and dirt that gets sucked into the computer, and sometimes the cooling fan itself stops working. You may not notice at all until you use a program that requires a lot of CPU power, which Digitizer MBX definitely does. The computer chip inside the computer monitors the temperature, and if it gets too high it will stop working to prevent itself from being damaged.

If your computer is a desktop, you can probably remove one of the covers. Unplug everything, take off one or both covers and vacuum out all the dust. Compressed air can be used to blow dust out of crevices, like the fins of the heat sink that the cooling fan rests on. Once everything is clean you can put it back together, but before you put on the final cover plug it in and turn it on just long enough to verify that the fans are all working. If any are not working, replace them.

Laptops are tougher, because they are full of tiny parts and just taking one apart is a big challenge. If the computer is a laptop, have it checked by a professional. Cooling fans often fail in laptops, and need to be replaced.

Re: Foot question

Jim_Stutsman <jim@...>
 

What you have is the Brush Out Embroidery Kit. Originally it was sold as just the foot, just a CD of designs, or a complete kit of both foot and designs. That was 7 years ago, and Janome has been dragging it back out as a promotional freebie over and over since then. It's kind of a fun novelty, but we had trouble finding suitable baby yarn to use with it, and you can only make so many fuzzy designs. However if you have Digitizer (MBX or prior) you may enjoy designing your own fuzzy designs. This document at Janome will explain how:

For exception access violation problems there are a couple of things you should try:
1. From the MBX Windows menu (Start -> All Programs -> Janome Digitizer MBX) choose "Delete Recovery Files". If, in the heat of editing and designing, a design gets corrupted and causes a crash, Digitizer MBX will attempt to recover it by re-opening an auto-saved copy. If that copy also happens to be corrupt you get into a crash loop. Using this option will purge all saved copies and allow the program to open normally.

2. Another crash-maker is corrupt default settings. In the very early days of Digitizer corrupt defaults were solved by uninstall-reinstall, but thankfully there is a program to do that for us now. Using the same menu as above, choose "Revert" and select all available options. This will reset the defaults of Digitizer MBX back to their initially installed values. Usually this will fix most problems.

I'm guessing that you are in the US. If so, you may have received the first release of MBX. There is an update for that version here:
http://www.janome.co.jp/e/e_downloads/digitizer_mbx_v40k.html
This may not correct your crash/freeze problems, but you should definitely update to 4.0K if you are not there now.

If you continue to have freezing problems it could still be a hardware problem. The CPU fan may not be properly attached to the heat sink. You would not notice this with programs that don't do a lot of "work", as they computer doesn't get hot enough. It might be worth installing a temperature monitoring program, at least temporarily, so you can see if the freezing happens when the CPU is very hot (How ironic!). Google this:
cpu temperature monitor
There are lots of these out there, many completely free. Good luck!
