Mount CI700 cables

I am looking for the cables for a CI700, Hand controller cable, RA cable and DE cable. I can also make my own but I need the wiring diagram. I tried to make cables from a six wire flat cable RJ11 but this does not work. There is noting wrong with the motors. they power up but pulsate back and forth. This means the polarities are crossed. Did Celestron cross the wires internally. Where can I get the schematics to make a new cable.

Are both motors pulsing? If not swap the RA & Dec cable to see if the problem switches motors. If it does then it is most probably a cable problem. If the problem stays with one of the outputs you may have a corrupt micro controller. I have two controllers with this problem and I have not been able to come up with the HEX file to reprogram the controller. There is no factory support. Good Luck!!
