    Had my Tarot T-2d all wired up and was trying to get the manual tilt controls added through the Tarot software. That being said, when I plug in power (thus powering the gimbal) I get three green blinks (i think the green ones, im partially colorblind) and then no more lights are on. I'm afraid I might have shorted something out, and the Manual states:

    "Motor output short circuit protection function:
    When the motor output is shorted motor output PTZ control panel will turn off and the green
    light is lit, thereby protecting the control panel from burning. After the short troubleshooting, you
    must re-power to lift the protection."

    I have no clue how to trouble shoot or 'lift the protection'. I tried unplugging everything from the Tarot board and plugging it back in, no different results.

    My fear is that I fried the board, a new on is on the way in case that's the issue...but hoping its just something else :|
