My Bernina 550 is poorly
It will only sew stitches of 4mm and won't reverse

I have just finished my daughter's bridesmaid dress and was hoping to make my dress for a wedding next Saturday.

Yesterday I noticed that the stitch was longer than expected - on the default which should be 2.4mm it was about 4. I could shorten it although it still did not match the display length.

Today it got worse and also refused to reverse.

Has anyone else had similar problems?

I think my Activa230 starteddoing that just before the screen went dark. I had to have the L-print board replaced. You are probably still covered by waranty. Mine was $150.
