Before printing, you may need to check the status of your Sonic Mini 4K's LCD screen. This is to ensure that both the UV lights and the 6.1” Mono-LCD screen are functioning properly. We will guide you through the steps of performing an LCD test and how you can read it:

On the touch panel, click TOOLS, then click LCD TEST:
1. A white rectangle with black sides will appear on the touch panel.
2. On the LCD screen, a 10.5 cm x 6 cm bright blue square will appear.
Run this test to make sure that the image shown on the LCD screen matches the one shown on the touch panel.
