Your description suggests that the "Mode" you've got selected is Fixed Position Stabilized (see Step 6: of the documentation). "Fixed Position Stabilized" is the name that Tabb or John gave to "it's stabilized but you can't control it." Can you post a screen shot that shows the Diagnostic window -- that's the window with Slew, Mode, Servo Out, etc. If the Mode status bar is not in the green area, you are indeed in Fixed Position Stabilized.
