I'm having a problem with my 5500-azimuth display and control. I haven't
used it in a few weeks, tried to work some passes last night and discovered
that I lost azimuth control and display. Big problem here is that I had an
operation on my shoulder on July 6th and have the use of my left arm only.
So I thought I would ask here to try and streamline the repair process. Here
are the symptoms...
Elevation works fine in manual or computer control.
Azimuth works in manual mode, but no location information is displayed on
control unit or pc software. Also no computer steering , only way to turn is
manual input , but no position display.
I tried to tweak the azimuth pots, no joy. Was thinking possible dead spot.
Any useful info would be appreciated. Sometimes I wonder if I hit bottom yet
in this worst year of my life...
