"The encoder has stopped working.
You will need to replace the entire motor/gearbox assembly.
There seems to be a problem with the encoders. The LED in the encoder looses contact and stops working. If you pop the cap off the end of the motor where you can see the encoder circuit, you will notice the small pink LED. When you blast it with canned air, the LED will come on. Do NOT use tuner cleaner, it will kill it. I tried re-soldering it and it worked for a time but eventually went out all together. You cannot replace just the encoder circuit board, Celestron only sells the entire motor/gear box assembly as a unit.
Here's the link to the motor:
