Hi I just bought a Cricut Mini and followed the installation steps closely. But when I try to cut the blade does not even touch the paper. I have gone through every installation step and there's nothing different with what I've done. What can I do? I ordered it through and cannot return it because I'm not in the US, so I'd be dead thankful fot a solution to this mess.

you might want to double check how you have the needle housing installed. sometimes it will slip when you fasten the screw. also double check where you have the pressure set at. You might also remove the needle and reinsert it. good luck. if none of these work be sure and call the cricut support line.

Make sure your blade housing in loaded properly & that your blade setting is correct!

I had this problem when I bought my first expression. It cut for one day and then the blade stopped going down to cut. I tried everything to get it to cut again but nothing helped. I ended up finding the problem but couldn't fix it since I don't have any electronic welding/sottering tools. I had taken the cover off the gray box that holds the cutting blade housing unit and moves across the machine. I saw that a wire had broken off so the blade wasn't getting a full connection that would make it move down to cut. I had bought the machine at walmarts and returned it the next day for a differnt machine. That was 2 years ago and no problems since. *knock on wood**
