Possible Cure to fix Locked out receivers!!


E011 error message comes because of bad cable or bad COM port. Try changing your cable. If you were using the Skyview file on it before and now when you try loading the CW file sometimes you get E011 or E31.

Try loading it in boot mod you can access that by pressing the power button and turnning the receiver ON from the back "boot" will show up on the LCD screen now open up your loader and laod the software. If you get error E031 or E024 message means boot method did not work.
Its time to try the 3rd method just follow the instruction as follow:

1-Turn off your receiver from the power switch on the back.
2-Press Power button and Volume + button together.
3-Turn the power button from the back. Receiver will reboot normal.
4-Press the power button again to bring it in stand by "- - : - - " and do the loading procedure as normal.

If all this doesnt work then check your computers COM port and Replace your cable. You should have a null modem cable to program CW600s receiver.

Had same problem on a Captive Works 600s, tried everything and nothing worked. So I e-mail captive works and they said "Dear Customer,
You can send your unit back to:

Make sure to include a $30 money order. That will take care of the labor, parts and shipping back to you.
Also don't forget to write down your full address and contact info. Thanks. " I did that unit came back loaded new bin and back in business! found this on other site hope it helps

or you can try The best result would be to do the 600s factory bin first but if that doesn't work you can clone it as there is no j-tag software for that unit. If you have to clone just follow these instructions and it works 99% of the time.

Cloning: This is a last resort.

How to Clone CW600s Box to Box?
From DigitalPlus:
1) Connect the master and slave box with twist RS232 null modem cable (pin2 to pin3, pin3 to pin2, pin5 to pin5).
2) Start the master receiver and press "POWER" key to make it standby "- - : - -".
3) Start the slave receiver, in the master box the led will display 'H' and blink it.
4) Input the password:
111 ---- Transfer S/W
222 ---- Transfer data
333 ---- Transfer data, then S/W
444 ---- Copy whole flash except Boot Loader.
5) After finishing inputting the password. Transfer will begin. When it finish, the LED will Display "-End". Disconnect the cable, start your receiver.
Note: By the different password, you can do what ever you want to do for Box to Box.

This should work with both 600S and 600P
