RockSTAR Troubleshooting Guide

If you are facing issues with your RockSTAR unit - the following guide will help you troubleshoot and diagnose the issue.


IN THIS ARTICLE


Device is not working and shows E01 code

The code E01 code means that there's is some sort of failure or issue with the unit. Usually, performing hard reset solves this issue. However, if that doesn't work then potentially the Message Inbox / Outbox might have become full or the device files might have gotten corrupt which would need formatting.


The first step would be to try and perform a Hard reset, hold down the Down key and the Red Alert button at the same time for 10 seconds, and then release.


If the above doesn't solve the issue, please try clearing out the messages from Inbox. To clear out all Messages, on RockSTAR press the OK button > Messages option > Inbox and click on each message and then DELETE messages that are no longer needed.

 
E01 represents a potential hardware error but it could be any part of the hardware - essentially the unit self-tests parts of itself regularly and if it has issues then it would raise that.


You can go into the Advanced menu on the RockSTAR unit and in the Errors section, choose to clear the error flag.


If the error still persists please get in touch with us so we can arrange the return/repair process.
