Pen housing question

Postby MsWipz » Sat Oct 17, 2015 9:42 am

Now I may just be being a blonde here... but suddenly my pen housing seems wobbily.. I am pretty sure it's never been like that before. I used it last night to score a card and it was fine.. but this morning I went to write with it and it's just like.. super wobbily and the writing is a mess. It's always written fine. Before I chase up Cricut Support, has anyone else seen this before?

Do you use the white pen holder from Cricut? For some reason I am thinking you don't.
IF you do then make sure all 3 little prong things are still there and that one didn't break
off.

If that is fine it could be the hold housing thing, that happened to mine.
There is a video/instructions on taking it apart and putting a touch
of crazy glue on a bushing that falls down.

Give me a minute and I will try and find it for you

Nope I have an Amy Chomas adapter... it was scoring fine last night ..admittedly I had left the scoring pen in from a previous session so I don't know for sure it wasn't wobbily... but I would think with this much movement it would have scored badly.
