I Could Be a Magician. Pixscan Mat Fixed!

5 12 2017

I have a love/I’m so sad you don’t work relationship with my pixscan mat. And in this relationship, I take comfort in knowing it’s not me. It’s totally the machine. My machine does this annoying little thing where it pulls my pixscan mat in too far while reading the second registration mark. Then it spits the mat out the back. Obviously, this doesn’t work. And the whims of the machine seem tied to updates. It can work well, then after an update, I have this same issue. So I wait.
I know my software is up to date, but yesterday, I remembered my machine had FIRMWARE. I checked to see which version I was on. It was 1.40 I went to the Silhouette America site to see if there might be another version. There was. It was 1.6 – I may have missed firmware update or two.
I updated my machine following the instructions on my screen. It took about 15 minutes and I got to see the screen on my machine change to various pretty colors.
I just tried my pixscan mat and it worked on the first try! I’m so excited πŸ˜€ I haven’t tried again, so I hope it wasn’t a one time thing, but considering it didn’t work at all before, I think my chances are pretty good πŸ˜€
So, if you’re having similar issues with your pixscan mat, this may be a good starting point for you, too πŸ™‚
Thanks for stopping by!
xoxo
