I have an SD59230U-HNI hat's been in service for years. Recently it started only turning on if I go out and move the turret around some, then it springs to life and boots. Normally I would guess there was a bad slip ring but IIRC it actually used cables.

Anyone had a similar bug and solution?

It is not driven by belts? I have never looked inside, just a guess. Maybe a belt is worn out?!

Turning on. As in the camera is off and wont boot when power is applied until I move it, then it turns on and does it's startup sequence.

When it stops?
Did you look inside? I have never opened one of these yet.
Did you try powering it with something else? Maybe the power source is failing.
