    Help with CE-Lite 50

    I think you can turn the Arms sensor up higher, check your manual. Turn your lights dim in the room. Make sure the ink mark is dark. Graphtec has great tech support, contact them.

    Help with CE-Lite 50

    That error code is LOOKING FOR THE STARTING MARK SCAN ERROR.. Here it is from your CELITE user manual. You need to use the arrow buttons and move the tool to the Starting Mark. 4-18 Of User Manual
  3. Which version of Flexi software on which computer operating system. For Serial to USB, are you using a Tripp-lite Keyspan Adapter? Any other cheap Usb to serial cable will not work with a vinyl cutter. It will have the same cheap Chinese chipset as the MH vinyl cutter has. Only a Tripp-Lite brand name, is guaranteed to work with a vinyl cutter. To be used with the null modem cable that came with your cutter.

    Z chip For MH 721

    I don't know where you read about not putting magnets, our Graphtecs have magnets, so that the carriage head doesn't cut past the pinch rollers. We have to disable the pinch roller sensor to cut outside or use EXPAND. Your welcome.

    Z chip For MH 721

    Now before you fire that cutter up. Scrape a little paint off the cutter, and attach a ground wire from the cutter to the stand. The static from the vinyl, has to go some where, and it will go thru the blade and on. UScutter also offers an anti static kit https://www.uscutter.com/Anti-Static-Kit-for-Vinyl-Cutters

    Z chip For MH 721

    You can do online searches with that part number http://www.ti.com/product/LM324-N/pinout-quality https://www.mouser.com/Search/Refine?N=4294759686&Keyword=LM324AM https://www.digikey.com/products/en?mpart=LM324AM&v=296 https://www.galco.com/buy/Texas-Instruments/LM324N?source=googleshopping&utm_source=adwords&utm_campaign=&gclid=Cj0KCQiAq97uBRCwARIsADTziybjKwbQ8ksdXXHM0S8nhqFMnMzUY-s5p9JvNQ2Y54RcQssisIg0s1MaAruHEALw_wcB

    Graphtec Studio Won't Print Anymore

    I have only worked with Windows, Actually I still cut on Windows XP, but I do have Windows 7, and I have GraphtecProStudio on Windows 10. I don't have a printer to print. I only cut and I never have problems, I use Flexi products. (Which GraphtecProStudio is) But like I said. Try Bootcamp on your Mac. or a trial version of Parallels. https://www.parallels.com/products/desktop/ It is not just Mac and Graphtec software, It is Mac and Sure Cuts A Lot software also. But Mac seems to be the problem. Many software companies no longer support Mac for their softwares. Flexi quit Mac on version 8.5 years ago. Vinyl Master is not for Mac either. Signblazer never was either. Maybe try the trial of Signcut, It is for a Mac.

    Graphtec Studio Won't Print Anymore

    We have seen problems on here with Mac and Graphtec software. But weren't you given a link to GraphtecProStudio? Yes, it is for Windows, But that software far exceeds any other Graphtec software. It is over $1000 software, like FlexisignPro. Maybe consider using bootcamp on your Mac. Or buy a cheap PC windows.

    Graphtec Studio Won't Print Anymore

    Can you use Cutting Master? (which ever version) If so, what does it do at printing? I have never used Cutting Master, I use Flexi products. Not too many Mac people on here,, but there are a few, maybe they will chime in.

    Have you gone into the printing Que and made sure there are not files hanging up there? Delete them, if there is.

    Z chip For MH 721

    How old is your cutter? A forum member has some for the older MH cutters. (I am guessing still has) http://forum.uscutter.com/index.php?/topic/54679-z-chip/

    Z chip For MH 721

    what is the part number on the z-chip?
  14. MZ SKEETER

    Blade will not go up or down.

    from another forum member posting, This has has been posted many times " guess is a z-chip on the mainboard if it had been working fine before. you can take the cover off the carriage and try touching a 9v battery to the wires to see if it reacts - if it does then change the z-chip - if it doesn't then carriage"
  15. MZ SKEETER

    Blade will not go up or down.

    Did you use a ground wire and ground the cutter to the stand? You should, as the static from the vinyl will go thru the carriage head and fry the z chip. Can you manually lift the blade holder up and down?

    Keep Center Of Letters Doing Stencil

    You should state which version of Vinyl Master that you are using. Each higher version has higher features. Which vinyl cutter and which materials are you using?
  17. I would not think the serial and the usb would go out at the same time. I have seen on here many times where people have broken the USB connector on the cutter and was able to connect with Serial or Tripp-Lite Keyspan Adapter. But you can order a new board.
  18. Make sure that your com ports numbers still match in your computer device manager and your cutting software. Do a complete reinstall if you have to.
  19. what type of vinyl? I have never seen vinyl do that.. Maybe add a little force, so that it cuts thru the adhesive more.
  20. With that cutter you cannot cut all the way thru. You will damage your teflon cutting strip. You need a cutting mat behind it.
  21. How wide is the cutter? Graphtecs will not cut past the pinch rollers, unless you EXPAND past pinch rollers or disable pinch roller sensor. There is magnets in the pinch rollers. Your not going to change that in your cutting software. It has to be changed in the cutter menu. Why did you list your problem under Vinyl Master software thread? You stated you were using ComputerCut by SolarGard. Why not sign up and be a member here? It doesn't cost anything and more people may respond to your questions.

    JII-61 Cutter Plotter

    Contact your tech support tomorrow. Nothing more that I can add. Other then trying a different vinyl cutter cable.

    JII-61 Cutter Plotter

    Have you always used the Tripp-Lite Keyspan with this cutter? And you also have the null modem cable, that came with your cutter, connected between the Tripp-lite and your vinyl cutter connection?

    So do you have Com 3 selected in your LXI software set up? In production manager?

    JII-61 Cutter Plotter

    You never did answer the question, When you have the CUT/PLOT screen open, does the Vinyl cutter brand show in the upper left hand corner above Properties? I am not talking about the Production manager screen. The CUT/PLOT screen. FILE>CUT/PLOT
