I was given a Meade DS2130 reflector. Everything seems to work fine except the scope doesn't move in Altitude. The motor works fine and the white horizontal worm gear and vertical white gear turn...

Meade DS-2114S, can not get the vertical, up/down movement to work when using the autostar mode, can hear the motor drive working but no movement, the left / right moves fine, and the up / down moves fine...


The knob on the fork arm is tightened? Correct. You can slew manually, but cannot do a two star alignment?

Is all of this correct? Post a reply with additional information.

You have trained the drives -- correct?

Motor tries but cannot move on the horizontal. Moves fine on the vertical. Usage only in Alt/Az mode. Only have the electronic controller that came with the scope.


You did tighten the AZ clutch? You did start from the HOME position? (turn the scope Counterclockwise to the hard stop)

Then you will either have to send it back to Meade for repairs, or open the bottom of the base, and look inside and see if the AZ worm gear is actually meshing with the motor. It could have come loose.

Bought the scope about 4 years ago. Fairly light use and not used in last 12 months. Was checking it recently and replaced batteries etc. Horizontal motor movement is fine however no vertical motor...


Do a RESET on the hand controller. Re-enter Time, Date, and SITE, and CALIBRATE motors.

Also sometimes a bad hand controller cable will cause this. You can buy another cable directly from Meade. Call them here:

I took apart the vertical support arm and need to insure that I am putting it back together properly as it will not currently move vertically, horizontal is ok


Here is the manual-
http://www.meade.com/manuals/TelescopeManuals/Reflectors/DS2000%20manual.pdf

If the motor does not work it can indicate-

A broken wire inside

A broken altitude motor

A broken motor control circuit board

Only the first one listed above can be fixed by you. The scope must be returned to Meade for either motor or electronic repairs.

MEADE ETX 125 Motors have stopped


The ETX125 is notorious for bad motor control. Weasner's Mighty ETX web site has links to repair centers that are more reasonable than Meade. They also have a QA section to assist with diagnostics.
