If you aretrying to link the cartridge to CCR turn it round and if that doesn't work wipe the contacts but be carful doing this. If the cartridge shows up on the machine then it is ok and if you cant get it linked phone Cricut support and they will link it for you if you have proof of purchase. If the cartridge has been linked already then it will not link into CCR or Design space but you can use it in the older machines before the Explore.

Its the contacts between "cartridge holder" and the cartridge.

Clean the contacts with ISOPROPYL ALCOHOL. (Warning:- do not use methanol, methalated spirits or acetone).

How do I use the Artbooking cartridge on the cricut design studio?

Cricut design studio is no longer supported by Cricut but if you mean Cricut Design Space then this is how you do it. Open and sign in to Design Space select insert images and in the box on the right select my Image sets and then type in Artbooking. Artbooking cartridge will then come up for you to select what you want. all images come onto the mat at 2.5 inches they havent fixed this yet so you have to resize your images. If you want to download the image numbers from the artbooking book which go with design space go to and download the artbooking book from this lady please join her blog and leave her a message as she does a lot of work all of which she does for free. Also if you youtube cricut design space. or go onto design space in

My printer will not print black ! it prints every other colour, but not black. I changed the ink cartridge and i cleaned the heads. What else can i do? It has been a loyal printer until today. please

Hi you mentioned that the Ink is new and that you have cleaned the ink heads, have you checked if the silicon Film for the ink cartridge contact was removed?

if that film is not removed cleaning the printer head will still not detect the ink cartridge for the Black on your printer.

Turn your printer OFF and remove all your print cartridges then install all of them again one at a time then turn the printer back ON, see if all the ink cartridges are now detected and if the Black will now print.

Also if you can

My printer will not print black but is printing all other colours ok

Possible that the B/W cartridge is not contacting or is blocked. remove and fit back. Now remove your printer from the PC and uninstall the printer software. Now reinstall the printer software and connect the Printer to be detected and installed. Check printer properties to see the ink levels.
Use head cleaning before a test is taken . It is possible that the head is not reacting to the need of the command , can be an issue with ink drying , can also be poor ink cartridge contacts

Put in new cartridges now can't get to scan?


Remove the Cartridges and clean the Electrical contacts ( golden points ) on the cartridges
Power off the Printer
If possible clean the contact inside the printer cartridge slot with cue tip.
Power on the printer and reinsert the cartridges.
It should print the alignment sheet.
Place the alignment sheet face down on the Scanner bed and press OK button on printer front panel.

If this does not work, Press the Setup button ( Ranch like symbol )
Scroll down to TOOLS - Press OK
Choose Align Cartridge/Printer - Press OK

Black ink not printing,

Either the cartridge is empty or its not being detected by the sensor. Even the print head may be blocked. Did you kept printer for some time w/o black ink cartridge? In such cases the ink gets dried up in the head.
You got to take professional help in opening the top & removing the scanner and then cleaning the sensors. Even Print head may require 'steam' cleaning.

some printer head pack in ink cartridge and for cleaning on that is to wipe out existing ink in the head with cotton. other design with separate printer ink cartridge from printer head and can't be remove unless you need to replace, for precaution don't leave unused printing for long time or ink may dry inside resulting for head error and cant detect ink label.

Jpeg file onto a cricut

Cricut does not accept jpegs. They use their cartridges that come with the machine and others that you can purchase. However if you have Cricut Design Studio you can design your image with the cricut. Any further questions feel free to ask.

Cartriadge cannot detect

Try to clean the cartridge head with some alcohol before insert it into the printer. Also switch the printer off at the mains for 5 minutes. Turn back on, then the printer cleans the ink, and away it goes. Remove all the cartridge; put it aside before clean with cotton.
Thanks Good Luck
