 +<wrap lo><​wrap em>If you received a Select Mini V1 or V2, black or white and the UI looks like the photo, do <wrap hi>​__NOT__</​wrap>​ update the firmware with any currently available firmware version. Some V1's & V2's, white or black do <wrap hi>​__NOT__</​wrap>​ use the same firmware as previous V1 & V2's. \\

 +If your Select Mini has Motion Controller version 31+ or higher pre-installed,​ do <wrap hi>​__NOT__</​wrap>​ use V1 Motion Controller firmware. There is not any firmware updates yet available for the Select Mini V2. \\

 +If your Select Mini has UI Controller version 106.2 or similar pre-installed,​ do <wrap hi>​__NOT__</​wrap>​ use V1 UI Controller firmware which is any versions 33 through 42. \\

 +I know all that is a bit confusing and may not make sense to anyone other than myself. Basically if you have a Select Mini V2 or V1 that has the UI seen in the picture, don't update the firmware. \\

 +Do you have a black screen after falling victim to updating the firmware after watching a video or maybe you outright ignored the warnings? You can contact me in one of the following online community groups so that we may schedule a time to get your printers display back to the way Monoprice intended it to be. \\
