Second Shooter Tilt motor damaged?

I was using a Black Magic Production Camera on the Pan and Tilt head and I guess the balance wasn't perfect as the tilt motor gave up and fell forward. Despite hearing the motor trying to tilt back up, it physically can't. It feels as if there's an elastic band keeping it stuck facing down.

It has been happy to take the weight in previous shoots so I'm unsure what's changed.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Hi Dan, I'm sorry to hear that you are having problems with your head and would be more than happy to assist you. Could you please send an email with a short video showing what you are seeing (like from a cell phone) the head doing to so that we can more accurately troubleshoot?
