Okay, I've tried Tim's suggestion and still can't get anything to cut. It did however cause the bladeholder to move from one side of the cutter to the other, so there is some communication between the cutter and PC.

Does anyone else have suggestions on how to sort this out?

Thanks

After you press print, select "layout" tab, then press "fit to page".
