My mount has stopped working and I am in search of help. I know inside its a 1993 setup. I replaced the power supply which I didn't think was a problem but still not working. I am looking to buy a new board and if someone could point me in the right direction I would be grateful.Can't sell a scope and mount if mount doesn't work.

I can't help with a new board, but if you're handy with soldering, you could open the case and replace the tantalum capacitors in the power sections. They are infamous for going bad and I repaired two mounts with the same problem. If you do so, use 35 to 50 volt caps in place of the ones you removed. Also check if there are any fuses inside which may have burned out.
