How Do I Reset My Silhouette Portrait?

Resetting your Silhouette Portrait can be a great way to start fresh and get your machine working like new. It’s an easy process that doesn’t take long, and can help you save time and money by avoiding costly repairs or replacements.

To reset your Silhouette Portrait, first make sure that the machine is powered off and disconnected from any power source. Once this is done, press the Reset button located on the back of the machine (it may also be labelled as ‘Reset’ or ‘Restore’).

The Reset button is usually a small black button located near the power cord.

After pressing the Reset button, wait for a few seconds before pressing it again to complete the reset process. You should then see a message on the machine’s LCD screen that reads “Reset completed”. If this message does not appear, turn off the machine and try again.

When resetting your Silhouette Portrait, it’s important to remember that all settings will be restored to their default values. This means any custom settings you had previously created will be lost, so make sure you have backed up any important files or documents before resetting your machine.
