The last couple of times I have turned my drive on the power LED would flash on and then off and then you could hear the drive running very fast and the scope would be tracking. The correct way it works is the LED would flash on, you could hear the motor search and then the LED would come back on and the drive would work great. It got to the place I never know if the thing is going to work correctly the first time I turn it on. Has this happened to anyone else.
