LX200GPS Errors

I have been experiencing a problem on my LX200GPS 14" for the last few months and wondered if anyone could suggest any cures;

while imaging, stars perform a triangular pattern never staying still for any length of time. When looking at the handset the dec and ra readouts are also jumping around which I wouldn't expect to see??? Also in starry night pro 6 (with the scope connected) if I zoom in far enough the scopes cross-hairs are performing the same triangular pattern.

Can not now remember when this first occured but its a nuisence, and makes imaging almost impossible.

Any help would be appreciated.
