SOURCE: WHen the cricut is cutting it tears my paper even

After having the Cricut for many years, I finally figured out how to cut the intricate cuts. Use multi cut 2, speed on med (3) and pressure on 4. I also keep my blade at 4. It takes a lot longer to cut but it cuts out good!

18 volts is the voltage and the thing that is most critical to stop the machine burning out.

The 'A' - amperage is the force behind the electricity, 2.0 is a sort of fairly strong person 2.5 amps is a muscle man.

If the piece of equipment needs a muscle man to move it and you use a weaker person, it may not move quite so fast. Good analogy?

Anyway, .5 amps is not going to make that much difference.

Why does my paper move out of place when the cricut expression is cutting? Is somethhing wrong with the roller bar?


I would just use a new cutting mat if the mat your using isn't sticky enough your paper will move.

Can i use cardstock paper in my canon imageclass d880?


There maybe an adjustment on the rollers for different types of paper grades. If so adjust it for heavier paper weight.

Ink does not stick to page on m2727 when printing cardstock. We have tried using different paper settings.


Are you using original HP toners or 3rd party (refills)? We have had issues with some 3rd party toners not bonding properly on heavier media. How heavy a cardstock are you trying to print on? If it is heavier than the highest rated paper for this printer then it may not bond at all, regardless of toner used. The heaviest paper that HP rates for this printer is 43 lb/bond. A lot of cardstock starts at around 65 lb/bond.

The cricut blade holder doesn´t go up or down.


My housing was not going up or down. Every time i wanted to make a cut it dragged and cut shapes in half. So when I took it apart I pushed it up and down myself and noticed that it was very difficult. So where you see the coils, I lightly sprayed WD40 (my cricut is out of warranty, I would not advise to take apart if you are still under a warranty). I lightly sprayed until it was easy to move up and down. When your done be sure to wipe any access WD40 that dripped to the bottom. This fixed mine and thank goodness because I was close to pulling out my hair! Hope this helps someone else!

When the cricut is cutting it tears my paper even though the cardstock is good and the machine cannot cut anything intricate. I tried changing the blade, but the same problem still exists

The cricut does not cut through the paper, it only scores it enough to see the outline of the image to be cut. I have checked on line and the blade housing is installed correctly. Does the cutter have a...


Yes, there are three rollers that one adjusts your size of the image you are cutting that is on the right hand side of the machine. The other two are on the left side of the machine. The top one is your speed control and the bottom is your pressure. I would move it up to medium when cutting with cardstock or even up to high if it is thick cardstock. Hope this helps, any further questions feel free to ask me.

I just opened the box from a TV ad purchase of the cricut. When I turn it on the carrier moves to the right and makes a horrible noise. Nothing will work.


Yes, the carriage does move to the right and it makes a funny noise as it moves. The cricut then should light up with display and power light. If yours is not then I would contact Cricut as you may have a defective machine. Just know they will put a charge on your card to ship another machine to you and will remove the charge when you ship your machine with issues back to them.

Dials not working


You may want to try resetting your Cricut to see if that fixes the problem. To reset the Cricut machine, turn the unit off for five minutes. Roll all the dials all the way up and all the way down five times each. Turn the Cricut back on. This is the manufacturer's reset process. Good luck!
