Default 5245mg problem

Ok my 500 tipped over and now I have 2 5245mg servos that seem to work fine under power but when not under power the servos will only turn in 1 direction and not the other way and will only go back the other way when battery is turned on. Ive checked the gears and are fine. Anybody have a solution?

You definately have something wrong inside. Take them apart again and check the pin support hole on the outer cover. They will often break and cause resistance in rotation of the gears.

Also try loosening up the outer case screws. Sometimes overtightening them can cause binding on the gears.

BTW my 5245's are not very easy to move when un-powered also.
