You probably locked the translation channel. Select the model and go to window>General Editors>Channel Control. Proceed to the Locked tab and select the XYZ translations on the left hand side and press the "move>>" button, to move them to the Non-locked window. THis should do it!

if that doesnt work set your 3D settings to 'quality' not, 'let the application decide.'
