The polar alignment I performed in all the ways you described in the
manual but the end result does not change continuously to always have the
same problem.
I opened my CP3 to see which chip it was installed and the chip is the
Q, but when I opened it I saw that theres a chip put LMD18201 not the best.
I put a photo in the photos to show you.
The problem that you are having has nothing whatsoever to do with what is
inside the CP3. That chip was added years ago to prevent lightning strikes
that could cause damage to the microchips. It protects all the incoming pins.
There is no reason that you need to open the cover of the CP3, it will not
cure your problems, whatever they may be.

If you are having pointing issues, then I would look for user errors. It is
not the electronics causing your mount to not point where you want. The
electronics either work, or they don't work. There is no in between. In your
case, the electronics work perfectly. No need to mess with it.
