Motor Problem - ETX 105

I am the proud owner of a new ETX105. I used it last night when the cloud disappeared and all was going well until - "MOTOR FAILURE" - it said that it needed to go through the initialization process again and be recalibrated. It gave a list of possible causes - the scope maybe overloaded, an obstruction etc, etc. However, I have nothing piggybacking and there was no obstruction. Has anyone else had this problem, and if so, what is the cause? Have I damaged my scope? HELP!
