Question about Meade ETX Premier Edition: ETX105 PE Telescope

1 Answer

ETX125 PE new model. Elevation has totally stopped.

I am in Australia. While trying to do auto align, the Elevation drive stopped functioning after a few tries. I have Googled all the solutions and checked motor, gears, worm drive, wiring, all appear OK. Azimuth works fine. No fault shown on Hbx, just doesn't move in Elv. Total silence. Using PC connection, can slew in Az, but no motion in Alev.

I removed the OTA with ease and the Alt assy looks fine, nothing broken. Also verified no motor motion when tried to slew from PC.

Could be that the DEC motor driver has died. That could be verified by swapping the connections between the RA and DEC. If the DEC now moves, then that is the problem. If not, then the DEC motor is bad.

Hi i have a vision fitness 9450 hrt and i'm getting an error message: E6


Typically an E6 error message indicates that the machine needs to be recalibrated because the elevation motor is out of range or that you have a loose cable connection. Below are the auto calibration instructions. Please make sure that no one is on the machine because it will speed up quickly.


STEP 1 ENTER ENGINEERING MODE

With the safety key in place, hold "ELEVATION UP" and "SPEED

DOWN" buttons for 5 seconds. Software version will appear in display

window for a few seconds before model displays.

Press "STOP" , "ENG1" will appear in display window.

STEP 2 AUTO-CALIBRATE

Press "ELEVATION UP" until "ENG4" is displayed.

Press "SELECT" , display will read "AUTO".

Press "START". Unit will calibrate, when finished "END" appears in

display window, then "ENG1".

STEP 3 EXIT ENGINEERING
Press and hold "STOP" to exit engineering mode


I would also suggest that, with the power to the machine off, you check all of the wire connections underneath the motor cover, the assembly connection that sits where the mast meets the console and underneath the faceplate. Check to be sure that all of the connections are secure and that the pins within the cables are seated properly.

I just bought a used ETX125 PE the motor that lifts the scope seems to power out,or simple cannot swing up!


Are you using the internal batteries? Are they fresh and fully charged?

Replace them and try again; or better get a seperate 12 volt power pack and the correct Meade 12 volt cigarette lighter style power cable.

I am trying to repair the motor drive in the fork of the 125 model, and would like to aquire a repair manual. the motor in the base runs fine, but when I pulg in the Auto Star paddle from my 6 inch...


Your problem may not be the motor?

Is this a 497 hand controller? If it is check the TELESCOPE TYPE in the controller. It should read ETX125. You cannot just switch controllers. The controller has been TRAINED for the other scope.

To switch it you must do a RESET, Calibrate motors and then train the drives. These "values" are stored inside the hand controller. If you move it to another type of Meade telescope you must RESET and do Calibrate sensors and Training again.

The dis-assembly pictures are located on the Mighty ETX web site here:

My Tunturi Treadmill ramp is stuck in the top elevation position and will not run. I get a "Auto Syncing" message, but the machine will not run. Have tried unplugging etc, but it will not exit the mode...


Enter the testing mode after switching the treadmill POWER ON by pushing first ‘SELECT’ and then ‘SPEED DOWN’ and hold buttons pressed simultaneously.
LED scanning mode for verifying display functionality Press ‘ENTER’ to scan DATA LINES to verify display functionality Press ‘ENTER’ to scan SACN LINES to verify display functionality Press ‘ENTER’ to scan LED’s to verify display functionality After pressing ‘ENTER’ the TIME window shows “test” and the keypad functionality can be tested (the value displayed changes when a button is being pressed) Press ‘ENTER’ to enter IO mode (TIME display shows lift motor potentiometer value, SPEED reads speed from speed sensor and DISTANCE shows heart rate pulse) Press ‘START’ to test lower board relay (a “click” sound) and then press ‘ELEVATION UP’ for 2 seconds to increase the elevation to 8%. Press ‘ELEVATION DOWN’ to decrease the elevation to minimum percentage 0% Press ‘SPEED UP’ to increase speed value and ‘SPEED DOWN’ toto decrease speed value. Press ‘ENTER’ to repeat above test or ‘SELECT’ and ‘ SPEED DOWN’ buttons simultaneously to return to the normal mode
The lift motor calibration is done manually by following the following steps: 1. Drive the lift motor to 0% from user interface (inclination display must be 0%) 2. Switch off the treadmill and unplug the power cable 3. Remove motor cover 4. Fold up the running deck 5. Loosen two screws (A) attaching the lift motor nut (B) to the incline frame 6. Adjust the lift motor nut (B) so that there is 9 mm (.358 in ) gap between the upper end of the nut and the lift motor frame Tighten the screws (A) and verify correct elevation by measuring Adjusting lift motor to 0% position 2.76in 12% position 9.646 in measurement taken from floor to bottom of motor compartment frame.

I turned on my treadmill after a long hiatus :) and got an error message and a beep. The errors were E4, E9 and a few others. It is a Vision Fitness T9400HRT model. Any idea how to fix?


E4: Solution 1. Check power to the treadmill, as insufficient voltage to the treadmill can cause this error to reoccur. Check the power socket that the tread is plugged into. Eliminate any extension cords or surge protectors (plug the tread directly into a functional power source). Make sure the circuit is not overloaded. Make sure the circuit is NON-GFI. 2. Calibrate (See engineering mode for specific treadmill). 3. If calibrations do not hold, replace upper console. Note: Usually simultaneous with an E6. E6: Solution 1. Check the elevation plug connection at the lower board. 2. Check ALL large data cable connection at the lower and upper boards. 3. Calibrate (See engineering mode for specific treadmill) 4. Test/change large data cable (use large data cable information provided in the data cable portion of this Guide). 5. Replace elevation motor E7/E9: Solution 1. Certain lower boards have an LED that flashes when the magnet on the roller passes the sensor. Adjust sensor position if LED does not flash. See lower board basic troubleshooting for lower boards with the LED. 2. Unplug RPM sensor at the lower board. Check continuity. Treadmill will operate without sensor but cannot Autocalibrate. Calibrate manually. 3. Replace RPM sensor TREADMILL.TROUBLESHOOTING. AUTO CALIBRATION STEP 1 ENTER ENGINEERING MODE • With the SAFETY KEY in place, hold the “ELEVATION UP” and “SPEED DOWN” buttons for 5 seconds. “DGA3” will appear in the profile window and “EHG1” will appear in the function window. • You are now in ENGINEERING MODE STEP 2 ENTER AUTO CALIBRATIONS • Press the “ELEVATION UP” or “SPEED UP” to “EHG4”. • Press “SELECT”. STEP 3 • Press “START”. The treadmill will calibrate itself. This will take about 3 to 5 minutes. When AUTO is complete, “END” will appear in the window. Wait 10 to 15 seconds and the treadmill will reset itself to “P1”. STEP 4 • Press “START” to test the treadmill

Total elevation gain consistently way too high (20+ percent)


I have the same garmin, and have the same problem.
The high changes even during flat runs so when added you have this overamount of climbing.
I just reduce the points of the track and then the addition is more accurate.
My problem now is that the GPS stops working during runs (turns itself off). Awful!!!
