i have an older DD-1 controller that has developed major problems in the Dec motion (and a less major one in the RA.)
Specifically, when i press a Dec button, the motor will go in a seemingly random direction (either plus or minus.)E.G.: if i press the North buton, i may get a South motion, or a North, and repeated pressing of the button will bring either result in any order... (this is true for both N and S buttons.)
Also, there is a longer standing issue with the RA control, specifically the reverse function: When reverse is pressed, the motor responds normally, but when the button is released, the motor will continue retrograde (at a lower speed,) until the prograde button is tapped.
These actions seem to be independent of the slewing speed selected.
The unit is LONG out-of warrantee (and the Big O no longer does Vixen...)
Anyone have a schematic?
Anyone out there know of a (perhaps) home-brewed control-box system?
