We had ours for about a year before we experienced the "E3" error! What the E3 error means is the antenna has hit a hard stop... aka, can't move! We were able to receive stations albeit some of the stations would pixilate since the antenna couldn't "fine tune" for the area we were in. Contact Winegard, my suggestion is forego the telephone and us their email contact. Tell them you have the "E3" failure and they will send you an email and then phone you. They sent a replacement antenna and I returned the failed one. We're back up and running...

Same problem here. It worked great when I first installed it a couple months ago. This trip is our first heavy use of the Rayzar automatic and it has failed with constant E3 messages. You can hear the antenna stop rotating once the E3 message appears. Winegard support said to try bypassing the existing "internal" coax by running a separate coax out through a window and up to the roof to see if it might be the internal coax. Have not had a chance to try that yet on this trip, but will update this thread if I can get a chance. So far, I am not impressed at all with this expensive antenna. Based upon the growing number of similar complaints there must be a design problem in it.
