My AVX has a new problem. The DEC motor when turning counter clockwise now exhibits one of two new behaviors.
- It will start oscillating back and forth
- It will just take off in the counter clockwise direction - this has only happened once
In either case the DEC motor audibly makes a higher pitched sound and seems to increase speed. This seems to only happen on go-to's or Starsense alignments. It was recently retuned to me from Celestron for another issue - which I think is fixed
I was hoping it was just a bad cable, but I don't think it is. I tested with a small ethernet patch cable, making sure none of the wires crossed in the cable, but the dec exhibited the same oscillation with both cables.
The encoder is not loose on the shaft. I did check that earlier in the week. I'm a little handy when it comes to basic electrical and mechanical - electronics are beyond me.
Anyone got any ideas what could be the issue? Thanks
