Hi guys...

Hope this is the right forum for this post..I bought a Superjack DG120 diseqc motor late last year, I hadn't used until this week when I went to do a test connected to the reciever before I installed it..the motor moved a few degrees and froze and now I cant move it back it looks like no power is getting to the motor..any ideas...please

Does that model have controls on the motor as well? If it has, have you tried using them?

Well if there is power going to it and the manual switches won't work, it will be a case of return to supplier.

Thanks rolfw for the reply..
I sent off a mail to the supplier in Germany but got no reply so out of frustration I brought the motor into an electronics expert in work who is looking at it as I type..so I'm sure this nulls my waranty....hard lesson learned if it does!!
Cheers anyway
