Why does Elvis keep permanently tilting his head?

When Elvis does his startup check of himself, once he tilts his head to the right, it goes ALL the way to the right and then stays there permanently. He'll boot up and start talking fine, but his head stays permanently tilted to the right, with the front/back motor moving him and working just fine.

Any idea what this is? Is there some type of VR sensor that might be stuck or broken, perhaps not registering that the tilt has reached a certain point?
I thought maybe it was because of one of the four movement switches, but it seems like those are only for maximum distance reached, shutting down the motor so it doesn't break itself from going too far.

Also, afterward, while Elvis was turned off, I've taken a 9 volt battery to move the tilt motor to reposition his head upright, so he's not starting in a tilt. But upon booting, he still tilts it all the way back again. I've even manually positioned his head all the way to the left, but he'll still tilt all the way to the other side.

Thanks guys!
