new to go-to mounts.... the cgemdx is my first.
After the first couple of weeks of trouble free operation (apart that I can't switch on the GPS)
today I got a :
Invalid Pkg: 0008
Now what? Is the mount fried? Was OK yesterday....

Is this normal that a new mount lock-up like that?

but the GPS still not recognized... I have a SKYSYNC GPS and when I set the Utility-GPS ON/OFF menu to switch it ON, the message is "NO GPS FOUND" ... The LED on the GPS module is on (working).
Any suggestion? May be a faulty GPS unit?

In desperation I pulled the unit apart... the small PCB has the socket a eprom(?)and a 5V reg... 5V OK the regulator moderately hot... a small SMD LED on the actual GPS pcb is constantly blinking - is this an indication that the unit is trying to lock on? Anyone with experience of fixing GPS module? I have excess to scope smd components etc.
