Cricut Expression stopped working

When I turned on my cricut yesterday, it was fine. I loaded the paper to get ready to cut...the blade moved into position...and then there was a noise plus I smelled a "burning" smell.....then it stopped. I cannot get it to turn on. Have unplugged and reset and nothing works. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

    Welcome to the Make the Cut! (MTC) support forum. MTC is a 3rd party software program that works with a variety of different cutters but has not worked with that cutter in several years now. I see that you just joined our forum and this is your first post. So, if you are looking for specific help with that cutter, I would suggest that you would find it on the Cricut forums or from Cricut support. You can find further links for that here: http://us.cricut.com/forum/ or support here: http://us.cricut.com/home/support (at the very bottom it gives phone numbers and email)

    Not sure how old your Bug is but they have been known to die. If you are outside of your warranty period (one year I think but not positive) then if it is dead, you are probably out of luck and will need to get a new cutter. If it is new or still under warranty at least, then you will want to contact the place of purchase and/or Cricut support for further help. Good luck.
    Go Vols!
