If the pattern you are knitting is shifted, your carriage may not be recognized correctly. You should also see this on the eKnitter display. The knit carriage is displayed with a 'K', lace carriage with an 'L', and garter carriage with a 'G'. Check the hall sensor settings. Details on how to correct this can be found in the eKnitter manual.

My left hall sensor started fine (with check mark) but my image was off sides. I started turning it and thought I further ruined my machine. I would turn it but nothing would change - not on the machine display nor on the debug page. Turning the blue screw then turning off the machine helped the machine start recognizing it was changing. That finally aligned, no idea why it worked sometimes but not others. 

The carriage wouldn't select needles in one direction. The needle selector cam was stuck. I found a video on YouTube by the answerlady where she and her husband take apart a Brother Carriage for deep cleaning. He spends a lot of time explaining all the things to be careful of while messing with the machine. The whole underbelly of the carriage looked good with minimal old grease but that one part was stuck hard.

Follow up to my follow up: 😕 

My problem has come back. I've attached a photo.

My left hall sensor reads 1.04V

@pjbryer  Could you please share the image of the png you tried to knit? If you are using an external power supply, could you also share a photo of its details? Additionally, please install Wireshark from  https://www.wireshark.org/download.html  so we can record what is happening. We know from our own experience that a break in the hall sensor wire can lead to no readings, fluctuating values, etc.

From your photo, I can see that 'K' is recognized correctly, but no needles for the pattern are selected. The solenoids require 12 V. Please

- check if S1 is connected correctly (it should be as deep as possible),

- if the jumper is still in the correct place, and

- if you are using an external power supply, also verify that it provides 12 V.
