Hi
In response to your email the whole unit is being returned to supplier motor problem is manufacturers electrical fault the meade etx-125pe should have motor limiters fitted which stops the scope slewing more than two revolutions in any direction to stop potential wiring damage this unit does not have them or they are faulty hence motor fault.

The engine in this car is controlled by an on board computer, when a problem like this occurs in most cases the computer stores a fault code for the problem, you need to do a fault code test by using the diagnostic connector under the dash in front of the driver, If you click this LINK it will show you how to read the codes without a scanner.

My problem is the telescope can not rotate to the left and when it does i hear gears noise


The worm gear in the base may have come loose. You can either return it to Meade for repairs or open up the bottom and try to see what is either loose or broken.

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.

New g.e. Dryer displays a fault code e61 on screen and will not power on or clear...this dryer is brand new...straight out of box with this fault code...


Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

you should have a electrician work on your wiring, with luck no further damage has happened, E61 means you have the neutral and the L2 wire either reversed or in the wrong position.

ENTER TEST MODE SEQUENCE by doing the following . 1.Disconnect the power for 30 seconds.
2.Reconnect the power and within 30 seconds press the sequence of buttons listed below.
3.Press the "SIGNAL"button.
4.Press the "DELAY START"button.
5.Press the "SIGNAL"button.
6.Press the "DELAY START"button.

Now after you have fixed the reveresed wiring problem you will need to remove the fault code fromt he memory otherwise the machine will not work. To remove the fault code do the following ENTER TEST MODE
SEQUENCE (cont.)
You will notice "t01". To choose the test mode that you want toverify, turn the knob to the desired test mode setting.
Push the start/pause button.To cancel the test mode, press on "power".
You will be able to choose another test mode and again press on "start/pause".
The display error codes test allows the service technician to examine and clear the fault log.
DISPLAY ERROR CODES TEST
(t02)
The display error codes test allows the service technician to examine and clear the fault log.
The control shall display the most recent error in the fault logupon entry into the display error codes test. If there are no errors in the fault log, the no error code "E00"shall be displayed on the 7-segment display.

The control shall clear the displayed error from the fault log if the start key is pressed during the display error codes test. After clearing thedisplayed error from the fault log, the appliance shall display the next most recent error from the fault log.

After clearing all errors from the fault log, the control shall display the no error "E00"code on the 7-segment display.
The control shall log the last 8 error codes in the non-volatile memory stored in a circular list.

The control shall avoid logging multiple instances of the same error code. now unplug the appliance for about 30 seconds and replug and everything should be fine.

Motor replacement procedure


This is really TOUGH to dis-assemble. The wiring goes through the central bolt and can be broken easily.

I would suggest that you return it to Meade for repairs:

Changing the coordinates of the autostar for meade etx 125


What are you using as a reference for "LST time"? I assume you're aware
that stands for "Local Sidereal Time", and not Local Standard Time; some
folks have confused the two. Do you have another method to calculate
Sidereal time for your location?

When you set Date and Time in the Setup menu, you need to use the time
from the "clock on the wall" without any mental adjustments for Daylight
Saving or Time Zone; those settings are made elsewhere. From your
description of the problem, it sounds like you have a time offset,
especially if your Site location values are fairly accurate.

Whether you use Zip Code or City sometimes depends on where you live
with respect to a particular city. If you live several miles from the
nearest city, Zip Code may be best .
