Is there anyone who still works on motorola 4dtv boxes. I use them for to move buds but has stopped moving the dish and another I bought off of e-bay but the password has been changed in it so I cannot do much with it.

They are bricks. Nobody is left to repair them, and they aren't worth anything anymore. You'd be better off junking them, and using a modern positioner controller.

Pull the relay board out of the ebay box and put it in the other one.The board is mounted vertically behind the front panel.It's pretty much an unplug/plug in opperation,you will likely need Torx bits for the screws.Oh and unplug the box from the power first.

These things can be repaired if you have some electronics experience. There are some fuses inside as well as other components you can replace if you have donor sources. This is a hobby, just like electronics repair can be. Waylew is on track with his suggestion. The mover portion of these 4DTV Boxes should still work even if the DC2 part doesn't.
