We had the transformer in the power supply go out once, but I seem to remember the autosampler didn't even begin to move or do anything. If the triplus is not to be used for a long period, we typically power it down to prolong the life of the electrical components.

Thank you Susie and Martin for your help. I've talked to my Thermo tech support and he thinks it's the board.

Indeed, that is correct: it was the XY motor driver board.  After some trial and error, and much remote help from Thermo engineers and Isogeochem colleagues, I was able to diagnose and replace it.  The individual boards are relatively economical.
Many thanks to all who helped with this!
