There's very little I can do but the information needed is:
Slew to hour angles of -9h, -3h, +3h and +9h. read the pier side at each. They should be W, W, E, E.
If the pier side changes between -9 and -3 slew to a little less than -6h so the pier side is the same as the -3h value and wait for the mount to track through -6h hour angle. It should not change but then neither should it with slews.
Slew to just before the meridian, at an hour angle a little less than zero and a pier side of W->E. Allow the mount to track through the meridian. The pier side should not change no matter how far it tracks.
Once well past the meridian a slew to the current position should do a flip and the pier side should change from W to E.
