No worries. Yeah, usually if an encoder is blocked you’ll get a drive error and it won’t even move it.
Sometimes the autostar gets wonky and will just change a setting. One dude was on here reporting that one day his worked fine and the next day it was pointing at the floor for an alignment star. He checked the time and it showed +6 instead of -6 for his time setting, even though his city was correct.
Mine was slewing wierd the other day and started “rubber banding,” moving back after I’d slewed the opposite direction, a problem that was supposed to have been solved in previous firmware updates. Mines on the latest version. I just reset it and then calibrated and trained the drives again and now it’s fine. I’ve read about that stuff happening on here and on Weasner’s site. But it was the first time that’s happened to me ever.
So maybe just do a reset, calibrate, and train and see what happens?
