    I was cutting a 12x12 auto-fill sheet and it just stopped 3/4 of the way through. The screen went blank and the lcd green light stays on. The cricut support online and the customer service via phone is horrible!

    My cricut turns on and all the lights blink and it makes a clicking sound like a car turn signal. Can't get through on the CS # so I have e-mailed them. If I get a solution, I will come back & post.

    I just got the cricut expression yesterday, and as I go throu the assembly instructions, I finally assembly the cutting blade. Everything in the machines work well, but it is not cutting. It seems that the pressure does not doing it work and it does not go up and down (the blade) as it is usually. Anyone can help?

There is a relay on the under side of the keyboard that goes out. ther is a release on the left side of the keyboard on the cricket expression that lets you remove the keyboard for a tall cutter or something. Turn the keyboard over and take the back off.there is a square area that protrudes from the back of the key board. that's where the relay is. it can be replaced. or bypassed.

    Finally, someone who has a concrete solution and has some expertise. This is a common problem and Cricut Help is of no help and they should know what causes this problem, but they don't! Won't be buying Cricut because of the poor customer service.. THANK YOU hpmsk2009

    What about an original Cricut personal? I have a no power situation on mine, pulled the power button assembly found a relay there that seems to be bad, but not sure what to do to bypass or replace?

  • Cameron Hall Mar 05, 2013

    Do you know where I could get one of these relays or how to bypass it?

I just got the cricut expression for Christmas, after I did all the necessary assembly, I turned the machine on and it made this a sound like a copy machine when its making copies and than it turned off...and it would do that over and over until I turn the machine off. I would love to figure out how to solve this problem. Thanks.

    Hi! I just bought the original cricut personal electronic cutting machine and I do have the same problem as yours. I reported it already and I was just wondering if you got yours fix or replaced by Provo craft?

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.

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!

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.

LCD not working and not all buttons come on

I would contact Cricut as there is a way to reset your machine. Resetting your machine may fix the issue. If it continues after the reset Cricut may ask you to send the machine to them. They will however ship another to you after applying a charge to your card then removing the charge after you ship your machine with issues back to them.

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.
