mbx issue

Kaye Lessard
 

hi Jim

sorry to post this here but need help - upgraded mbx from 4.0 to 4.5- on my windows 7 computer. working fine- 

installed the upgrade using only the 2nd disk ( since my dongle had already been updated) to my windows xp computer- 

I get the H4007 error saying security device not found.  

I have had this issue come up before but can not find the info  to fix this time.  

Please advise and I promie I will keep this info so I do not have to bother you again!!!

I probably have it just dont remember what I named it!!!  

everytime I go to doctor he tells me whatever is wrong is because I am getting older!!!  So I guess the brain is  tired some days!!!LOL


When I first joined the group someone mentioned a thread guide for the horizon 15000  - but it is round- am I correct in understanding there is  one available for our machines- as I do miss mine.  

Hope all is well with you and diane and your family!!!

kaye in la  



Jim says:

Error code H4007 is not in my list of known errors. Try installing the latest dongle driver here. If that doesn't work you'll need to contact Janome support.


The round thread guide comes with the 15000 spool stand. It may be available as a separate part, but I do not have the part number.

Thanks Jim about the DVDs, will wait.  As for the video, sorry still can't open, when you moved it to different server did the link change?   Claire S.

Jim says:
The link did not change. It connects to the server indirectly through my server, so I could move it without changing the link. If you can't open it the problem could be your browser or your ISP. In particular, if you are on a satellite link you probably won't be able to view it at all.

Doesn't the 9900 also have that ability

Is there another link to the site?  Is this video different from those on the Janome site?  As a fairly new member here, I'm not sure what dropbox and these videos are. 


Jim says:
There is one and only one link: http://www.onlinesewing.net/fmc-demo.php
It's not like any video on the Janome site, it's not on DropBox, you don't need to know anything about DropBox to view it, and it you aren't curious about the Free Motion Couching foot you don't need to view it at all. Some old browsers (I'm looking at you Windows XP!) may not be able to view it. If that's the case I'm sorry, but I've already spent more time on this video than I expected to and it's time to stick a fork in it because it's done!

Initially I hosted the video on my DropBox account, but so many people accessed it that DropBox disabled my public site. I've moved it to a different server and it is working again.

We are currently working on videos for the 15000, though we've been delayed a bit. Today was a no-work day due to a new roof going on after the hail storm on the 4th. If you have a 15000 don't order the 12000 videos. The 15000 videos are all new, for that machine only.

Marsha, is it possible for you to leave part of what you are answering?  Don't know whom or what the question was,  Claire S.

when this has happened to me, it was because the design was larger than the 100,000 stitch limit.  If you split the design into 2 parts to get around that, it will work fine.  Just stitch the first part, then the second part.

Jim, can't open this video.  Also, having a 15K, should I wait for the new foot book or is the current one enough?  Looked thru your site and saw about the newsletters but wondered about the DVD's.  Will there be any for the 15?  Needless to say I am confused about which to order, for the 12 or 15?  Thanks, Claire S.

Thank you Jim.


Airstash

hproffetty <no_reply@...>
 

Hello, question for Jim I believe please. I have an iPad Air. Recently bought Airstash iOS4.2 on Amazon. I would like to watch your 12000 sewing machine & embroidery DVDs I just purchased on the Airstash and if I understood correctly use as wifi hotspot? However when it came, all directions and information on box are in Chinese. Is there a user manual or instructions that you might be able to assist me with. Thank you. Heidi



Being unable to answer in Chinese, Jim falls back on his feeble knowledge of English:

We worked up a tutorial on this, which you can find here. The AirStash works well for this purpose.

In the market for a new computer, what would you recommend that would work with the janome 15000?

What is micro embroidery

Sent from my iPhone


Looking up from his microscope, Jim says:
Micro embroidery is small designs with a high degree of detail. It is usually done with 60wt or finer thread and requires machines that have very fine stepping motors, such as the Janome MB-4, 12000 or 15000.

Thank you!  That video explains how to use the foot better than anything I've seen!  I'd rather stick with Janome feet but thought their foot didn't work well because of the review.  It looks like the trick is to feed the yarn from the back unless it's very thin.

I read this, less than favorable review of the foot so hadn't considered it: http://freemotionquiltingadventures.blogspot.com/2013/03/janome-free-motion-couching-foot-review_20.html

Cheryl,


Good advise.

Stitches in the manual

Jeanne
 

On the last page of my manual for the 12000, at the bottom there are 4 rows of stitch icons.  When I bring them up in the machine they are super super tiny... to the point that you ask yourself -- what are these for?  Has anyone thought of a way to use these?  Are they also on the 15000?


Reading the fine print, Jim says:
Those are the "Normal Sew" stitches available in embroidery mode. Back on the 11000 we asked Janome for the ability to use sewing stitches in embroidery designs and this is what they gave us. They are also present in the 15000, and there are more of them.


Re: Has anyone used "Creative Feet"

Didn't Janome just come out with a couching foot for the newer machines?


Jumping off the couch, Jim replies:
Yes they did. The free motion couching foot set (Part #202110006) fits 9mm machines and 7mm high shank machines.

Hi,
I feel that this topic is being beaten to death.  I personally own both the 12000 and the 15000.  They are both beautiful machines and do wonderful sewing and embroidery.  However, I find the 15000 to be more intuitive and it does have much more than the 12000.  What is most important is:

How much do you want to spend?
Do you want the latest technology?
What are your needs?  Maybe the 9900 will suit what you really need without the large financial burden.
The 15000 has "micro" embroidery capability - Do you want that?  The 9900 also has that feature - it is one of the new features in Janome embroidery - if I understood one dealers explanation correctly.

I wanted it all, but decided to keep my 12000 as the hoops are interchangeable, so I could start something on one machine and finish it on the other, if I wanted to do that, or hoop a second project and have it ready to go with the first is complete.  I also wasn't going to starve to death or not pay my bills if I had 2 fancy machines in my sewing room - I'm collector.

I suggest that anyone wanting a new machine, should locate a dealer - take in some fabrics and do a test drive and then make their own decision.  After all you are the one that will be using the machine and no matter how many opinions come up on a forum, they will never agree and in the end you still need to make your own informed decision.

Good luck with your decision - I'm sure that whatever you decide you will be happy.

Cheryl - Saskatoon

Subject: [janome12000] Internet Explorer vulnerability

 
Over the weekend a new vulnerability has come to light in Microsoft Internet Explorer. This is the browser that comes with all versions of Windows and the vulnerability is in every version right up to the current 11. The danger is that if you visit a website designed, or infected, to exploit this vulnerability your computer can be compromised. Microsoft may be issuing an out-of-cycle patch for the problem instead of waiting for "Patch Tuesday", but you should not use IE for web browsing until they do. The problem does not exist in FireFox or Google Chrome or any other browsers. It does exist in all browsers on Windows XP, and will not be fixed for that OS. If you are still using XP do not use Internet Explorer for web browsing.

The problem with issues like this is that when they are announced the bad guys learn about them too. It becomes a race for Microsoft to fix it before the Internet is flooded with exploits that take advantage of it. Not a week goes by that I don't delete a post that consists of nothing but a web link. Those posts don't come from legitimate members, but from software that masquerades as members. People get infected by clicking on the link and then their computer starts sending out more bogus emails. If you get an email with only a link, don't click it. If it's from someone you know and has text encouraging you to click the link, verify with the sender first. Let's be careful out there!
