Check the fluid level in the touch control block. If its low, check the oil level in the engine crankcase. If its high, the hydraulic pump drive shaft seal is leaking and needs to be replaced. If the engine is not high, fill the TC block and bleed any air from the system.

Did you bleed the system to make sure there was no air n it? I would try that first. Also check your engine oil to make sure the hydraulic isn't leaking into your crank case.

Edit: Looks like Don is a step ahead of me.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

If the problem comes back, go to this link and download the GSS-1024 touch control service manual.
