Cyber CX tilt stepper

I have a Cyber CX that doesn't tilt.
- The spring plunger was the first try, but looser or tighter didn't matter.
- Tried swapping P&T at the dip switch to check for data errors - pan works fine, still no tilt.
- Also tried swapping P&T connectors at the data board - again, good pan but bad tilt.
My conclusion is the tilt stepper motor. Does that sound reasonable? Is HES the only source for a new one or is it a standard spec item?

Cheers,

Scotty.

    I would say its the motor they do go bad over time. You can get parts from your local Highend dealer or from lightparts.com

    Lightparts provided the new parts. As well as a new stepper motor one unit had a bad stepper driver chip, also available from lightparts.

    Just posting as a flag to also check your stepper driver if it seems a stepper motor has gone bad.
