Hi all,

I am brand new to cricut so I bought an expressions machine from someone on Craigslist. Now I'm afraid it might not work. It seems to just be cycling in some sort of start mode. The screen just has the 'Cricut V2.43 Copyright...." etc. The roller bar is turning but won't load the mat. I never get a 'working' screen so that I could actually select shapes. I downloaded Craft Room and it says I need to update but that's not working either......I'm afraid I got ripped off. Anyone have any ideas on how to get this thing working? Thank you so much!

Okay, with the machine powered off, put a cartridge in the slot. Turn the power on.

It should also read the name of the cartridge. Using the keypad you load the mat, and selected the images to be cut.

What version of machines do you have? Expression or Expression 2

Hope this helps.

Thanks. When I turn the machine on, it just seem to be cycling through a start up mode. The screen is dark and says "Cricut V2.43...." It is not getting to the point of reading the cartridge or allowing me to choose anything using the keypad. It is an Expression. I am considering calling Support, but not sure they will help me since this is a second-hand machine. Thanks for your help!
