My cricut expression, upon startup, would make the 'normal' sound for startup, and then when going to the right would make an awful grinding noise. Mad It wouldn't recognize cartridges or my gypsy and it wouldn't load paper. Needless to say, I was in tears Crying and spend some consideralble time scouring the internet for answers. I tried everything I found...most recommendations were to slide the cutter over, push the reset button, cut, etc. Nothing worked. Well - my machine is old, I bought it refurbished, and I don't think I ever had a warranty. So, I decided I could take it apart and look at it. I did some more searching on the internet and found some site that basically talked about taking broken machines and fixing them AND how to take things apart. So - I tried it. There was a section in there about grinding, and the answer was a loose or dropped lead. Wouldn't you know it - I opened up the right side (it was a PITA), and sure as anything, my reset button had a dropped lead. I plugged in the lead, powered it back up and voila....my machine didn't grind, it did recognize cartridges and it did load paper.

BigGrin Life is good.


Here is the website where I found all the info - http://everhack.blog.atx...2/08/cricut-repair-info/


note: the hardest part was taking the silver trim off and putting it back on!
