If the brake solenoid is getting energized to release the swing brake then you want to verify that you have pressure to the swing motor. Verify the lines flex in you can notice a load on the engine of it trying to swing. If you can confirm this then you know it's after the control valve if you can also check pressures in confirm you got good pressure going to the swing motor deadheaded. If so and the solenoid is functioning but the swing motor won't turn then look at either possible failed gearbox or a problem with the swing motor itself if all of the functions are working normal. Remove the top cover of the swing motor where the swing brake clutch packs are and inspect for damage. I have seen these clutch packs fail. Also check for signs of fine metal or debris in the filter and the oil. Check for the same at the swing motor ports to see if there is a sign of this indicating a failure has occurred. Check your swing gearbox oil level to be sure it has oil in it and has not lost the pinion seal leaking into the swing cavity Grease. If this is the case then all they would have to be cleaned out and the swing gearbox disassembled and repaired. Start there and follow up with the results.
