    I will assume you checked that the grub screw is tight on the motor shaft.
    You can try changing the wiring from the AZ motor to the Alt motor to see if it turns.
    If not then you know it is the motor itself.

    If it has not flashed a 16/ 17 code when you turn it on the motors are still communicating at least so the boards should still be good.
    Are both motors doing this or just one?

    When turning the mount on if it cannot "talk" to the individual motor boards it posts either a 16 or 17 depending on which board it is.
    Since it is not posting a code I would think you have a bad wire or a defective motor.
