    New Hobbit. Smaug turned proper for about a day, then as he turned left (CCW), he'd hit the stop and then like he had epilepsy, would begin to shake. The error code would come up on boot saying that Dragon error occurred. I went into the setup functions and there is NO settings for the turn, only the mouth movement. I did exercise it left and right manually many times. Each time I'd exercise it, he would work fine for a few boot-up's, then start the shake again. Yesterday it booted up OK and has since (about a dozen boots). I'm hoping the issue is gone, but I'm concerned. The machine was NIB and I've contacted JJP, nut no resolution from them yet! Anybody have any ideas? What would you do?

    I've checked the wiring. Smaug turns fine with power off, no rough spots. The mouth seems fine, although with 3.1, I'm not sure the little moan on the 1st trapped ball is right. He doesn't speak on trap 1, but has several "smacks" on trap 2...

    Thanks.
