Introduction: Silhouette Cameo 4 Crooked Cutting Repair

About: Technical department of Hexis Nederland For Silhouette and Graphtec

When your cuts are not the way they should be probably there is a screw not tight enough inside the Cameo 4.

When you follow the next steps this issue should be over.

Good luck

Step 1: Take Your Cameo 4 on a Flat Clean Suface.

Step 2: Unscrewing

Turning the Cameo over and remove the 2 screws as shown on the picture.

Step 3: Remove Cross Cutter

Remove the cutter unit and turn the Cameo back facing you.

Step 4: Again 2 Screws

Remove the 2 screws as shown on this picture

Step 5: Open Cover

Gently slide cover to the left side away from the Cameo

Step 6: Screwing

When you look inside the machine from the backside you see a wheel which moves the under axel.

when you turn it you see 1 screw (See picture) Tighten this screw and reverse follow the steps and plug the machine back in.

Happy Crafting.

    Question 4 months ago on Step 6

    Hi to everyone!
    I'm new in this group and I've decided to contact to you cause I don't know how to repair my Cameo 4. I've been having a look at this post from you and I've followed the given instructions.
    However, they didn't fix my machine.
    I add some photos to this post in order to beg your advice.
    Thanks in advance.

    try to tighten the belt to follow the same instruction but in this case, you will see a piece of metal that pulls the belt try to loose the screw and then pull just a little be in that way the belt that moves the x-axis is almost tight but no to tight and not loose (enough in the way that x-axis doesn't loose step from the motor)
