This could be a loose connection on the circuit board or it may be a bad board, either way it should go to a tech for repair.

According to this brochure, the machine uses a PC card. http://www.brubakerssewing.com/uploads/files/8600.pdf
You would need to purchase a reader/writer unit with a rewritable memory card in the format of the embroidery machine.
Allbrands.com has the best prices - with any merchant check before purchasing as software usually cannot be returned.

Testimonial: "Thanks! I'll use a pc card and not worry about the port on the machine!"
Just trim the fabric to the desired hem length plus one inch, then overlock around this raw edge with thread close colour match to the fabric.
You then have the choice of either stitching around with a stretch stitch on your sewing machine, or hand sewing.
Being lycra shouldn't change how you hem them unless the trouser leg is extremely close fitting and the hem seam is going to be under tension.
My first choice would be using a twin needle in straight stitch from top side but this finish can pop/break if the hem is under tension. But perfect for most knit hems.
If you hand sew then you can turn up hem allowance and put a length of fusible hemming web inside the hem allowance and press it to hold. Then do a back stitch hand sew around to hold hem in place.
If you sew with the regular sewing machine, then use either the stretch stitch or a very small zig zag, and a ball point or stretch needle.
On ready to wear you would see a coverstitch hem but your overlocker doens't have this stitch.

If the fly wheel is going around then the clutch isn't disengaged to wind the bobbin, you need to pull out the flywheel on your model to disengage the clutch for bobbin winding.
Take thread from thread spool across to bobbin winder thread guide, then back to bobbin and thread the tail through the hole on top of the bobbin. Place bobbin onto spindle on top of machine and then push it against the stop to engage the bobbin winding motor. HOld the thread tail up and start winding slowly until the bobbin core has been covered including the starting point. Stop and trim off the thread tail with scissors. COntinue winding bobbin and give the thread a nudge if needed to wind evening top middle and bottom of the bobbin. A good smooth wind is important. Also don't wind at full speed and keep an eye on the thread reel that the thread is coming off, you don't want it bouncing around as this will **** the thread and stretch then relax it affecting your bobbin wind.
Obviously if you know this and the bobbin winding mechanisim is just not working, then it will need a service/replacement by an Elna repair person.
