Hi burguete_fra,

I'm just wondering if you already did the reset process on your machine. Resetting the machine is one of the good start in troubleshooting your machine. You may want to do the following steps below:

- First, turn your machine on with no cartridge loaded. Then you are going to roll all your gray dials (the two on the left and the one on the right) down to their lowest setting.

- Then you will want to grasp the green/gold cylinder blade assembly and use it to pull the entire gray carriage car unit (the one with the Cricut bug on it) along its track to the other side of the machine. Back in the cave where the gray carriage car usually sits there is a red button. Press that button and hold it down for about three seconds. Let go and then move the gray carriage car back into place.

- Go back to the three dials marked Speed, Size and Pressure, and roll each one all the way up and down three or four times, for each dial.

- Then you are going to hit the "Cut" button and turn the machine off. Let the machine sit for a few minutes (15-20)

- Load a cartridge, turn the machine back on and try it out. If you are still experiencing problems, you may have a defective machine. You will need the receipt to return it to the manufacturer.


Hope it helps.

Thank you for using Fixya.

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.

    Cricut machines power supplies


    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.

    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.

    My cricut expression keeps turning on and off. Resetting does nothing since it won't stay off or on long enough to actually reset. Any ideas?


    I would contact cricut because you may have a defective machine. I had an expression and cut one thing then it froze. We did the reset and that did not resolve the issue. Cricut had me send my machine back and they shipped a new one. Mind you they will put a charge on your credit card only to protect themselves. You just ship yours to them the way they tell you in the one you receive. Let me know if you do not have their contact number.

    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.

    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.

    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!
