Help needed autohelm st 7000

Iím pulling my hair out .
Iíve the old black headed st7000 fitted .
It has been working now and again but I think due to a lose wire says ďdriveĒ and fails .
So last night while on anchor decided to have a go at fixing it .
So with myself below and the mrs at the helm had her on deck clicking the auto button and adjusting course until I found the wire and consistently had the auto pilot trying to adjust course and brilliant it was fixed ! NOT .
This morning I turned the auto helm on and the rudder position ( that has always read true to this day ) is now saying full port . It obviously is not as we are not going around in circles .

What have I done ?
Have I inadvertently reset the rudder position .
Is compass not working properly .

Iím asking on here as itís too old for raymarine to tell me whatís wrong and the instructions on line are for the st 7000 in grey and screen on left not right like mine .

Help please . Click image for larger version
