Rejuvenated the circuit somehow by running it with the AC adapter for a few hours! Power switch needs to be turned on, off, then on again for it to "catch" and start operating the motor drive. NOT a mechanical problem, tested the motor and ruled it out.

Perhaps premature, but I think the problem is solved. Will still try to get new board for Ultima 8.

End of update.
