You will need a serviceman for this one as it is a serious problem.

note: rr is right rear, lf is left front and so on.

Usually this indicates a problem with the elements or worse - electronics (if it's the electronic version).

Be sure all caps are on correctly, then make sure the igniter is clean. Try using a tooth brush with soft scrub around the igniter, rinse, dry and try it

always unplug electricity before attempting to repair on any electrical appliance

most likely the keypad is defective.

You can find knobs on e-bay for that cooktop. They are about $8.00 each and break as easy as the original. I fixed mine by making metal sleeves to press on the shank on the bottom of the knobs. It's an advantage to have a metal cutting lathe at home.

The induction cooktop will flash "F" when cookware has been removed from the surface; cookware is not present when the unit is turned on; or cookware is not centered on the element.
Position the cookware properly over the center of the cooking surface if the error code "F" flashes. Use only induction cookware and use a bigger pan, as the error code "F" indicates that the pan is too small for the cooking element.

There are several helpful how-to videos on Youtube but please be aware induction hobs work on a principle different from the usual and the troubleshooting and repair is considered a specialist task - if you wouldn't poke around inside a tv or a computer then you probably shouldn't poke around inside your hob.
