I'm at a crop right now, and a friend asked to use my Cricut. I plugged it in, hit the power button, and it started as normal. When it got to the opening screen, the one that simply says Cricut, it just freezes. All the buttons on top are lit up as well (magnifying glass, home, pause, and power). When I push the other buttons, their light goes off, but the screen stays frozen. I've tried restarting it with the cartridge in place and without the cartridge. I've tried plugging in the cartrige one the screen is frozen hoping it will break the spell...no luck. It's just frozen!!! HELP!!!!!Mad Crying Blushing

Hi Ladys. Have you tried a reset?

How does one reset their E2?

I am having problems with my E2 as well. It is stuck on Cricut and all of the buttons are lit up but will not move beyond that or to the menu. I tried to download the update/sync firmware with no luck. I do not have a mac. I have tried this on a computer with Windows 7. It states that this software could potentially harm my computer. Would not load on my laptop either.

I need to cut out letters for quilts that I am working on. I gave my Expression away when I purchased this E2, now I wish I had kept it! I thought this would be the latest and greatest!

I even tried calling the number to Cricut but could not get through to anyone. After this posting I am going to try to email them. If anyone has a solution, please let me know. Thanks!

They don't respond to emails in a timely fashion and it will likely tell you to call the 1-877 number when they do respond. I don't think the hours are correct on the support tab though. I think it's more like 8am-6pm mst. Give them a ring tomorrow and they will help you through a reset.

Just wanted to update you, phoned customer support. Was on the phone with a nice young lady for several hours yesterday and together we could not get the Sync to run on any of my computers. I told her I would continue to try. She told me what to do if it connected and how to reset if it did. The closest I came was on my XP laptop this morning. It actually downloaded and then started initializing the drivers took over two hours, then a box came up that stated "failed to connect to Bridge. Please restart Sync, if the problem persists contact Customer Support." So I will be contacting that nice young lady again...... In the meantime, I will be listening to my husband's livid complaints regarding the cost of this machine and its inefficiency!!! Blushing So I am getting out my original personal Cricut to cut one letter a time. Oh well, I have a deadline! Crying Thank you for your suggestions.

Oddly enough I am having this problem as well. do you mean to tell me I have to somehow get my E2, which is stuck on this cricut screen to update with the updater? I've tried that and mine would not connect either. I hope Cricut finally pays attention to this issue as it does not seem to be uncommon....
