    My machine does exactly the same. It also tells me I have the small hoop on andneed to change to large hoop when actually I do have the large hoop on. I have had my machine for about two months and have not been able to use it! I am so frustrated that I give up and wait a few more days before I try again with the same results.,..HELP

    I feel your pain. I got my machine as a christmas gift and as you have not been able to use it. I embroidered one thing and it has been doing the exact same thing yours is. I have large hoop on it reads E6 need large hoop. I change to small hoop and it says need large hoop. I can't win. I live in Canada and bought my machine in the U.S it will be a royal pain to send it back, like you I am at a loss.

    Read the instruction manual carefully, there is a specific way to turn on the machine with the hoops, I forget exactly and my manual is not here to look it up. As far as the needle hitting the hoop you might try with the machine off manually moving the hoop as far to the left and toward the bottom as possible, you might have to make it move about 1/4 in more then turn on the machine and it should reset the embroidery unit to the middle, also make sure your needle is as far up as it will go.

Did you have the hoop on before you turned on the machine? if so.take off the hoop and turn off the machine and wait 30 seconds turn it on and wait for the carriage to move, then attach your hoop.

When you switch the machine on with the embroidery unit on, it is suppose to calibrate itself and move the bottom left position. If not, the problem lies with the embroidery unit. If the machine is still under warranty your dealer should fix it free of charge.
