SOURCE: Cricut Expressions Machine error

  1. Make sure your cricut is off when you plug it into your computer via usb.
  2. Make sure your usb cable is plugged directly into the machine, and not to a usb hub.
  3. Start up the DS Once the DS is fully loaded, choose HELP > UPDATE FIRMWARE.
  4. On the cricut machine, hold down the STOP button. Keep holding it down and briefly hold down the power button. Keep holding down the stop button and in about 3-5 seconds, you will hear a beep. That means you are good to go.
  5. On the "update firmware" screen on your computer, select the model you have and then click "begin updating now"
  6. Go and read a magazine or make a cup of tea because it takes a while to update. If it goes really fast (no matter how cool your computer is) it means it did not install properly and you will probably have to do it over again.

Hope this helps you.

SOURCE: My Cricut Expression keeps turning on and off.

I have one of these machines stripped down on the bench now with this problem. I have located the fault to a power relay which is sealed but must have burnt contacts as it is not passing the power to the machine to power up. I am still looking for a source of 18 volt coil relays with 10 amp contacts to fix this one. If not I may have to modify the circuit to overcome this problem.

My Cricut Explore Air wont cut


If your Cricut machine is not cutting all the way through your material, or is only scoring the material, choose a machine below for specific troubleshooting tips. Fortunately this issue can usually be resolved with basic troubleshooting.

correct cut settings.
  • Remove the blade housing, then remove the blade and ensure that there are not any bits of paper stuck to the blade or lodged inside the blade housing. Ensure that you replace the blade housing correctly into the machine. Once clean, test your cuts again. If the blade and housing are already free from debris, or cleaning it did not help, proceed to 3.
  • Try an arm buoyancy test: gently press down on the black arms that surround the blade housing and then release them. Do they bounce right back up, or do they stick or rub in any way? If they stick or rub, please contact Customer Care through one of the options below for further assistance. If they bounce right back up when released, proceed to 4.
  • Increase the machine pressure settings and try your cuts again. If this does not change the cut result, proceed to 5.
  • Increase blade depth by turning the dial at the top of the blade housing. If this does not change the cut result, proceed to 6.
  • Perform a Hard Reset on the machine. If this does not help, proceed to 7.
  • Check your machine's firmware version. If the firmware is not up to date, perform a Firmware Update using Cricut Craft Room, a Gypsy device, or Cricut Design Studio.
  • Retry your cuts with a new blade housing.
  • If the machine is still not cutting through materials, or is only scoring the paper, please contact Customer Care through one of the options below for further assistance.
  • Forced Firmware Update on the machine through Cricut Sync.
  • Retry your cuts with a new blade housing. If the issue persists, proceed to 8.
  • Attempt a Format and Restore on the machine through Cricut Sync. Please note that this step should only be taken if all other steps have failed to resolve the issue.
  • If this does not resolve the issue, please contact Customer Care through one of the options below for assistance.
  • new blade. If this does not help, proceed to 5.
  • Adjust/increase the Multi-Cut setting in the Cricut Craft Room cut preview screen and retry your cuts. If this does not change the cut result, proceed to 6.
  • Retry a cut using a new blade housing.
  • If the machine is still only scoring or not cutting through the material, please contact Customer Care through one of the options below for assistance.

    How can I get a new Encoder board V2Encoder for a Cricut Expression?


    You may be able to get a replacement circuit board from the source where you purchased your Cricut Expression. More likely, It will require an inquiry to Provo Craft to determine availability and source.

    Cricut expressions 2 pressure wheel


    You say you have a Cricut expression 2 but you say quote"...of how to reset the machine including the rolling of the dials up and down three times!" The problem I have in sorting your problem is that the Cricut expression 2 does not have wheels which work the speed, pressure and size. If you have an expression version 1 machine then there would be 3 wheels on it to adjust the speed pressure and size. Obviously if you have had the machine for 4 years it is out of warranty and I am not sure just what the person did to "fix" your problem. I do recollect a video on you tube with a similar problem however looking at the video he mentions that once it is fixed the blade housing should bounce up if you push it down, does your housing now do the same as the video. In the video Evan did he mentions at the end that the soldering of these wires may not take the first time so this may be a point to check as he mentions that it was travelling the machine that caused the wires to break in the first place. The youtube.com video I am speaking of is http://youtu.be/n7LJnfPdd08, by Evan Craftman. I am assuming that when you called cricut support you called the UK support line. I often speak with support in the USA being from New Zealand it is an overseas call however I have found them very good. If you are able to I would like to see a video of just what your machine is doing. If you dont want to post it here you could email me flohillrennie@gmail.com.
    I do feel very sad that you don't wish to try the Explore as I find it a surpurb machine. I have had my Expression version 1 since early 2009, I have added every Cricut to my family of cricuts and own 3 expression 2's and now an explore. If you had bought a computer 4 years ago and you currently took it to a repair person to get it fixed I am sure their first response would be it would be better to get a new one. Your computer boards appear to be fine maybe you need to take the video to the person who did your fixing as most people who do this sort of work would not understand how the machine runs. I hope this helps and you can get your Cricut working again. If all else fails you may be able to buy a 2nd hand one cheep and have your repair person change the carriages completly.

    Cricut expression 2 has no power, will not turn on


    Any resolution to this issue? I like stone234 have narrowed it down to the cricut not getting power past the power board. I tested the two prongs that feed the red and black power for the main board and no voltage. Cricut Exp 2. Powered on as soon as I plugged it in. Plugged in usb to computer, I didnt have the software so i searched for it then started downloading it and noticed the screen on the unit was frozen. unplugged it and after plugging it back in it wouldn't power back on.
