Hi Emmanuel, It is Dan. Can you provide more detail in what is happening? Is the boom going down on its own with the controls released? If so check for sticking pilot plungers under the joystick control handle and boot. They are known to stick and if so you can replace the plunger. If thats okay check the boom relief valves and the control valve spool for damage or not centering from broken springs etc. Also check the cylinder for bypass in the seals of the cylinder. Let me know.
