Mount not moving - help!

Recommended Posts


I have an HEQ5, and the powerlight is still on. When I connect the SynScan handset it says initialising, but and it will say it is slewing (according to the handset). However the mount does not move at all - I can not hear the motors turning. No error is reported, and I do have the clutches engaged. I can't think what it might be or to check. If the motor board was faulty I would expect there to be an error, but everything looks fine according to the handset. Any ideas ?

Worth having a look to see if the motor connectors are still connected to the mainboard, in the past mine have be caught by the hole for the polarscope as it rotates.
