Yesterday a lady asked how to calibrate the screen on the Scanncut as it wasn't cutting to the line....so I decided to do a qick post on how to.
First switch your machine on.
Next, using your finger, touch the screen and turn the machine off whilst still keeping your finger on the screen.
Then switch it back on.
You should now see this screen.
If you do this correctly then you will see a success message on your screen.
Please note that yo may have to do this several times as you need to have the X and Y reading 0.
A bit of a faff but worth it for a perfect cut!!!!!!!
Thanks Mel. Not needed to do this......yet. SueL xReplyDelete
Good. Don't do it unless you need to.xReplyDelete
This is something that I wouldn't have even thought about. This info is so helpful just in case I ever have any need to use it.
I was watching you on C&C at lunchtime today and I think I heard you say that there is a list of companies who are happy and give their permission for us to use their products with the Brother ScanNCut. Please can you tell me where I can find this list as I am so careful when it comes to Copywrite. I'd really value having a list as a guide as well as being able to check what other companies are happy for me to do with regards to the ScanNCut and their products.
Thanks Mel xx
I saw this and thought I’d comment on it since I think you will cause some people a lot of confusion. You don’t need anyone’s “permission” to use their product on the Scan n Cut. If you are cutting out a drawing or something and are doing it for your own use you are just fine. The only way you might have issues is if you planned to use someone else’s art work to sell and make money off of it for yourself. That is a “commercial” use and you can’t do that without permission. As far as actually using materials like paper, foam, fabric, etc., you don’t need anyone’s permission to do that.Delete
Thank you for this information Mel. Much appreciated, more than you will know! Deb xoxoReplyDelete
Hi Mel, I seem to be having a few problems, I was wondering if you can help me. I bought my machine back in march and have never done an update. I am having problems with patterns not being able to move them and when scanning some thing in the left arrow will not move for me to make the area smaller. This morning another problem arrived I brought up the alphabet and when I tapped on a specificReplyDelete
letter it brought up the letter next to it instead. Do I need to calibrate the machine? And do an update.
Yes. I would try it. Let me know how you get on.xxx
Hi Mel, I have not been getting perfect cuts so decided to recalibrate the screen. Not getting the zero results I did this several times. However, I am now not able to move from point 1 now, the numbers on screen change, and it does a double bleep, but the little black box stays on point 1. Where have I gone wrong, and what can I do to fix it please. Thank you. LynneReplyDelete
I need you to email email@example.com
They are the technical people and should be able to help.

Hi Melanie, Thank you for your very prompt reply - very grateful. However, I kept on 'fiddling' and found that pressing over, and holding the plus with the box it bleeped and moved to the next number. It got stuck a couple of times but cleared when I pressed and held for a moment. I am currently trying for the zero's (nearly there but not quite) - back to the drawing board (or screen in my case). Thank you againDelete

I was told by someone at Brother that this adjustment is to calibrate the screen, not the blade. And it is the exact method of calibrating the Brother embroidery machine's touch screen. Strange that it would adjust cutting issues here since there is another adjustment for that.ReplyDelete
Hi Mary AliceReplyDelete
This is for calibrating the screen and not the blade. If you touch the screen and it doesn't either bring up or move the shape then re-calibrating will help.
Thank you for this VERY helpful information!!!ReplyDelete
Still no joy with getting the numbers to 0/0ReplyDelete
Thank you so much, you just saved me a trip to the repair shop :-)ReplyDelete
Hi, my screen on my scan & cut won't work unless it is flat. Has any one got any advice please.ReplyDelete
I have a CM900 and not had it out for a while. Was fine when I last used it but since getting it out again the carriage will only go halfway across the mat and then judders. It also judders when it returns to the left. Cant cut anything further than halfway. Dont know what to do. Anyone got any ideas please?
Have tried switching on and off, calibrating, changing mat size, cleaning rails and checking for stuck paper/card inside.
Thanks in anticipation.
