raymarine auto helm problem.

hi all, i have encountered a problem with my st6001 auto helm. after a windy pick up off my mooring with auto helm engaged an alarm was sounding on the head unit so i turned all off and left the boat. next time out trying to use auto pilot the head unit displayed "norudref" and would not engage. i have tried the ohm,s test on the rudder sensor and all checks out ok although the rudder bar on head unit is all over the place and not true. since trying anouther sea trial it seems it will follow a course to starboard but will not recognise a change of course to port. has any body had a simular experience? not sure if i need a new rudder sensor or control computer.
it is hard to get help in Australia with raymarine equipment so hoping someone can shed some light.
many thanks,Dave.

I've gotten good support from their techs using their online forum.
