Troubleshooting downloading with Passap E6000 Links

Serial E6000Link 2 - downloading not working

Problem description: The E6000 gives an error 213 when starting to download.

This link has a switch that must be moved for downloading so that the switch lever points away from the red spot that is next to it. (The switch must point towards the red spot for interactive knitting).

Any E6000Link - wrong sequence of key presses on console

Problem description: The E6000 gives an error 214 (and sometimes other numbers) when starting to download.

This could be because of an incorrect sequence of button presses on the E6000 console. The correct sequence is as follows. Power on, then wait until the WAIT message disappears. If it doesn’t show PROGR already, then press the key with 3 triangles pointing right until it says PROGR, then press ENT, ENT again, the required caston number (such as 1, 2, etc), ENT, NO, unlabelled key, and finally the Zero key. The console should show PC START.

Any E6000Link - PC START unavailable

Problem description: It is not possible to get to the point at which the E6000 console shows PC START.

This could mean that the console does not have the necessary chips for downloading. The serial number underneath the console indicates whether the console had the chips in when it was purchased new. A console with serial number 6025980 or later will have the chips. A console with a serial number that begins with 6 has an 8K memory, or if it begins with 7 it has a 32K memory.  If your console was upgraded at some point after purchase, the serial number cannot be used as an indicator of which chips it contains.

Any E6000Link - what memory size to use

Problem description: It is not known whether the E6000 console has an 8K or a 32K memory.

Select E6000 (32K) from DesignaKnit’s knitting machine list and download a large (180 stitches x 200 rows) 2-colour pattern with technique 176.  If it downloads without error it must have 32K memory, or if it produces an error message it will have only 8K memory, in which case select the E6000 (8K) from the list.
