friend of mine bought an EQ5 with the synscan- he has to send it back for repairs, im not famaliar with the syscan operation- when he sets it up it goes to Artures correctly,but the second alignment star the OTA slews down into the mount and freezes, other then that, saying the input 'is' correct- it does track, BUT- when you push the DEC it moves in one direction, if you repush it, it changes directions- any idea whats wrong? or is this definitely a return item?

Sounds faulty to me but might be useful to try factory reset first.
Here's a thread of something similar:
