I brought a G5500 with me to Europe and have it up and running.  The elevation rotor is working as it should.  The azimuth rotor turns the antenna left and right as it should when the button is pressed, but the readout on the controller is not working.  When I turned on the controller, the azimuth meter pinned to the right (i.e., beyond the red 90 degrees mark).  I was able to adjust on the back to get the meter unpinned, but the indicator does not move at all when the rotor is activated.  Any ideas on what may be wrong?
