 +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. \\
