Additional Instructions (all OS types)
The firmware update program will be able to review the current firmware version present on your machine and confirm whether or not an update is recommended.
IMPORTANT: Do the following when prompted to unplug the power and then power it back on (as part of the firmware update process):
Remove the power cord connection from the Silhouette machine
Hold down the power button on the side of the machine
While continuing to hold down the power button, plug the power cord back into the machine
Continue to hold down the power button until the screen turns light blue. This will take several seconds to engage. Once the screen is light blue, you are ready to proceed.
Failure to remove the power cord and follow these instructions will prevent the update program from being able to properly update the machine's firmware and can cause the update program to get stuck on the screen where the update process starts. If such occurs, end the firmware update program and re-start the steps above.
