    Need Help.Flexi Sign And Redsail

    Sorry, but no one is going to help you with pirated/counterfeit software. Maybe try free inkscape.org to help you with your designs. Then save as an .eps file and import into Signblazer.

    Need Help.Flexi Sign And Redsail

    Legal Flexisignpro 8.1 has a USB dongle. And every version after that. That USB dongle has the user ID and password in it. The legal version will not even allow the software to open without the USB dongle in the computer com port. Flexisignpro 8.1 is the most pirated software out there. . Show a picture of the USB dongle in your computer lit up like it should be. .This is a picture of Flexi 10, but you can see at the bottom of the picture, the USB dongle. All legal Flexisignpro software has A USB dongle. Also the other picture is of a legal version of Flexisignpro, with the USB dongle NOT in the com port. You will get this error until you put the USB dongle into the com port of the computer your using. This is how you know that you have legal Flexi products.

    A USB dongle is like a flash drive or thumb drive in your com port on your computer. Similar to this photo. The user Id and password is in it to make the Flexisign8.1 work. Do you have this in your computer when Flexisignpro 8.1 is working? ONLY legal Flexisignpro 8.1 software has the USB dongle. Flexisignpro 8.1 is forWindows XP and older Windows.

    If he gave you a Flexisignpro 8.1 and it does not have a USB dongle, that goes in your com port and lights up, to make the software open, then the software is pirated/counterfeit. Can you show us a picture of the USB dongle? Also Flexisignpro8.1 is for operating systems XP and lower.
  7. Also, are the wheels of the carriage head firmly down in the track?

    MH721 MK2 LCD Display comes up blank

    Guess I missed that. if you really still want an inexpensive MH cutter, you can probably pick them up cheap on Craiglslist. and use the parts from this one to keep it running. Or purchase a new one. They are cheap enough. We tell buyers to stay away from this one. Too many known problems. I hope you didn't spend much for it.

    Outdoor Vinyl Color Match

    You may find blues are really hard to match, and especially to match on an online screen. Best to match the actual vinyl samples against the actual color you want to match.

    Fonts And How To Add??

    Are you referring to Graphtec PRO STUDIO? Look for TEXT at the top of the screen. It should show all FONTS on your computer.

    Maybe someone else can chime in. Try Graphtec tech support. Nothing more that I can help with. I covered all I know, without seeing screen shots of settings. Which may or not help. Which can be posted right here, so other members can help. I would have no idea what you have going on or what settings you changed. I have never had your problem. Most times it is because people don't have the blade holder seated correctly or the blade and force set correctly. Your welcome

    I would start slow, until you learn your cutter. You have never stated what settings you are using. Try a different trial of cutting software. Vinyl Master, Signcutpro.

    Are you still trying this in Signblazer? Graphtec has Graphtec Studio also. I think it runs on GP-GL. I have never tried it. Have you tried using the Graphtec Cutting Controller? That is about all I do use right on my computer. I never change settings on my vinyl cutter. Below drivers on the Graphtec site. I change all my settings from my computer. To make the Graphtec Cutting Controller open, the vinyl cutter must be ready to cut.

    Do you know how to do a factory reset? Hold down UP arrow while turning on the power at the same time.

    Their CE models blade holder arms were like this picture. This in US was only on the FC models

    Do you have the blade holder sitting in the arm correctly with the flange over the outer ring of the blade holder. Another guy just had this problem.

    OPs from England have been on here, trying to get cutters to work, on different things, and their cutters were different. They came from Graphtec Europe. They showed pictures. Their blade holders arms were different,, The CE 6000 had a different style blade holder arm, that could be put in a front or back position . For perf cutting. It even had the groove in it so the teflon cutting strip wouldn't be tore up. There was something different with the CE5000 also. That may have also had a different blade holder arm. I could not help him, because our cutters were different. That feature was only available United States on the FC line of cutters. Starting at FC8000

    There are differences in Machines between Graphtec America and Graphtec Europe and other countries.

    Maybe the cutters in Canada are different. My FC7000-MK2-75 does not have a screen come up and say that about blade depth. Maybe that cutter is Graphtec Europe? Mine is Graphtec America.

    Where do you live? US? What is this supposed to mean? "it may be stuck in the mode for setting blade depth" ? YOU have to set the blade depth manually. This is how to set the blade depth. and force correctly. To start with, you should set your blade depth correctly, by taking the blade holder out of the machine, and firmly cut across a piece of scrap vinyl, you will be cutting. You should only be cutting the vinyl and barely a mark on wax paper backing, Adjust blade to get there, Then put the blade holder back in machine, and use the force of the machine to get there, same results, only cutting the vinyl and barely a mark in wax paper backing. You should just barely see and feel the blade tip our of the blade holder. Take some time and read your user manual. It is on the Graphtec site.

    The way you were explaining the problem, was that it was not moving at all. UP or Down. Did you set the blade in the blade holder correctly for the vinyl you are cutting? That is a blade holder for a CB15 blade for reflective vinyl. Again. Have you ever ran a Graphtec vinyl cutter?

    I don't know what you have done, so that it doesn't come down now.. Does it try to come down if you take the blade holder out of the carriage head? Does the arm move up and down? Trying TEST 2 again.
  25. MZ SKEETER

    New to vinyl. Just got a fc 7000 75

    Can you push the blade holder down by hand? And it comes back up?
