Me, too. I also bought a couple of the Pro-Search controllers when they first came out. I tested them when I received them on an indoor rotator (bench mounted Tail-Twister) and they both worked fine. But I never put them into service. A couple of years went by and then I decided to test them again on the same Tail-Twister before I installed them. And neither one worked this time on the same rotator (which still worked fine with its own controller).
Apparently they "died" while sitting on the shelf. The factory was not very helpful--suggesting that since they were out of warranty that I should send them back and they would charge me a significant portion of their new price to "repair" them. (More than 50% of the original price.)
But then I did use some tri-chloro-ethane to clean off the paint that was obscuring the part numbers on the ICs. But life got in the way and I never got back to the project and the controllers are still sitting on the shelf--waiting for time and more information.
Needless to say, I was disappointed with the controllers and even more so with the lack of factory support.
Any info that might be available would certainly be appreciated by me--as I now hope to be able to repair them and put them into service--FINALLY.
