Rcx run a way

I have a 10" RCX that did a run a way in RA. We have got it sort of going again.
Everything runs OK and it gets GPS and moves in RA and DEC.
The computer says it connects to scope OK but we don't seem to be receiving
anything back from scope or saving settings sent to it.
In setup, we set it to smart mount off but it stil slews when it is switched on, when
you tell it to park it says mount upper limit exceeded for a few seconds, then parked turn off scope
comes on handbox. The software does not show where the scope pointing it just
stays in centre of screen on computer. Remote handbox on computer connects OK but has has no
writing coming back from scope. Do we need to put 2.2i firmware in again or could it be
motherboard that is faulty? If it is faulty can I get a new one or will I have to
get it repaired
