Default my nightmare continues

with the babylock EMP6 . . a few weeks ago I posted that I used the wrong needle resulting in locking the machine . .the nearest technician is 3 hours away so when I called him he suggested to go to a local repair machine in town who is an expert in commercial machines . . .I was of course so happy to not have to make that drive. . .I left for a week vacation and when I got back it was fixed . . or so I thought. well apparently the mechanical problem got fixed but somehow the electronic part of it got damaged somehow? well when doing applique, once the initial base stitch is complete and I take it off the machine to trim the edge, once I restart it the satin stitching is completely off is this a major repair? the guy that fixed the mechanical problem says this is something he cannot fix . . . .have contacted babylock via e-mail but just wondering if anyone on here can shed some light . . .

Sorry I cant help with a Babyloc but I had a similar problem with my machine some weeks ago. I was half way through a design , turned the machine off to go home over night and turned the machine on again the next day. Machine started 2cm below where it should have started. Reason for that was that I must have jogged the frame when I turned it off, so resetting the center point of the design.
Maybe thats what has happened. You jogged the frame when you took it out.
Have you tried sewing the whole design on a piece of scrap without stopping the machine? The satin border might have a different center point than the rest of the design.

Just my thoughts , maybe its a digitising problem and not a machine software problem. Hope so , it would be much cheaper to repair.

You should never turn your machine OFF in a middle of a design and leave for night, just wait until it finishes the design. With electronics now days you can't trust the machine to restart in same spot and not reset itself.
