If all else fails, reset the mount to the default settings and input your information. Many times, this "reboot" repairs the problem.

Make sure the DEC cable is fully plugged in at both ends. Look into the sockets and make sure the fine wire contacts are aligned properly both vertically and horizontally. There has been some failure of the crimps on the RJ connectors of the cable. If you have access to the crimping tool you should re-crimp or replace the connectors. There could also be a connection problem inside the lower motor cover between the MC board and the power board. Another place for bad connection is inside the upper motor cover between the DEC board and the motor. You could also have a bad motor or MC board. Try swapping the connectors between the RA and DEC motors on the MC board.
