Bob, I had a simalar problem a few years ago with my Omni VI+.
I was told that it might be dirty connectors and you could check it out by
switching with the rit. I dont remember the numbers on the wires but that
was not the problem anyway. The problem was a dirty connector where it went
onto the encoder.
Took it off and cleaned it and has been working FB ever since. That tip was
from Dave,K1FK. It saved me from buying a new encoder.
