Hey all:  I came in possession of one of these mounts, something i could setup for visual astronomy quickly.  The only issue is the motors do not move at all.  I've disassembled and checked things out.  I found a chip on the board that appears to have gotten fairly warm, discolored, and i've ordered it.  I've also contacted a vixen dealer stateside but they no longer support them at all.  I was looking for schematics to the board or troubleshooting tips.  neither was forthcoming.  Do any of you guys have any ideas where i could get electronic schematics or any information on this mount?  Any help is appreciated.
