E1 Self Check Failed(Error 3101)

When I am doing self-check test of the E1 emulator, in the TEST1 it is failed. And I get detailed error information as  below.

[Error Message] The E1/E20 self-check has failed.

[Error Detail] Internal module check has failed.

TEST1 : Internal module check
TEST2 : Loop back check
TEST3 : Open check

  • Did you make sure your emulator is not connected to your target hardware?
    The error message says the target interface still has output voltage on UVcc although the power supply circuit in E1 has been switched off. If you have dsconnected your target you damaged the target power supply circuit inside E1.

    Hi FrankL,

    Thanks for you replay!

    I have done a test again, the TEST1 is passed, but TEST2 is fialed. The information is as below.

    Why?
  • In reply to Caven:

    The message says pin 13 is defect. This pin is used to output a RESET signal from E1 to the target hardware. So your E1 cannot output the RESET signal any more.
    When you look at the circuit in figure 2.26 of the E1 for RX manual (R20UT0399EJ0900) or figure 2.16 of the E1 for RL78 manual (R20UT1994EJ0700) you see the output has a pull-up and a 22 Ohm inline resistor. The message says the output is "H". So it may be the 22 Ohm resistor has been damaged.

    OK! I will check for it.

    Thanks a lot!

    Hi Caven,

    Did you figure out what's causing the error?

    No, my test result tells me that the 22 Ohm resistor is all right, not has been damaged. I can't find what's causing the error now.
  • In reply to Caven:

    If you connect E1 to your target and provide power to the target, you should see that pin 13 of the E1 connector (RESET out) is low when E1 is working correctly and you don't use hot plug-in.
    With you error message E1 should output "H" on pin 13.
    Do you see this? If so the damage is in the ICs in E1.

    Hi Frank,

    Thanks for your help!

    I know my E1 is damaged and I am sure the 22 Ohm resistor is all right, but I can not find which IC is damaged. Is there any way to resolve the problem.

    Best Regareds,

    Hello,
    I'm sorry, I haven't checked any further.
