Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is***** will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
Try first, adjusting the Overlap Adjustment potentiometer. It varies the position at which the Overlap LED comes on... which very generally means you have turned the rotator too far in one direction, I think.

Does that help you with the subject of your question? if not, I will help further; if so, please let me know.
