Ok ,last couple nights i am facing something weird. Until now meridian flips were done successfully. But no more. When the flip starts and mount slews, it stops when it hits meridian. A weird sound comes from the mount and it stops after a few seconds. Then i try to park it , and it parks in a weird position, not the normal one. I don't remember changing anything in eqmod . Limits are disabled. Mount is connected to wall socket with a 12 v converter which was performing excellent so far. So guessing, power isn't an issue. No cable snugging or collision.
Sgp pro is set to execute meridian flip 10 minutes after the crossing.
Any ideas?

(Mount connected to pc via shoestring cable)
