Hi

Just wandering if anyone know but I just replaced a turret control board for a tu2020 turret and I can't seen to get the turret motor to stop has anyone had this problem before. I think there may also be a problem with the flag sensor.

Kind Regards
Jeremy M. Smith

Try manually moving the turret past the normal spot then clean the area the sensor reads and the sensor itself.

Does the locking pin solenoid try to engage and stop the turret when it gets to position, or is the turret simply revolving over and over again?

Remove the locking pin and clean it and the sidewalls of the hole the pin travels in.

It's probably the flag sensors if you replaced the board.
