LX90 RA Motor

Everything was working fine, then for no apparent reason my RA motor would only turn in one direction, clockwise. Attempts to turn it anticlockwise cause the autostar and the power LED to go dim. Releasing the RA lock still gives me the same problem.

Powered from a current limited 12V 1.2A supply.

Inclination motors work fine.

Anyone come across this problem before, any clues how to fix it?
