Question about Meade ETX-90EC (325 x 90mm) Telescope

1 Answer

Horizontal moter problem

I bought this second hand but it worked O.K.for quite a while. Now it doesn't move horizontally. The motor makes a noise but there is a loud buzzing as though some clutch is slipping. Vertical works O.K. Move smoothly if I slacken off the clutch lever so it's not obstructed. What do I do?

In 2004 I bought a monitor Hansol 930 D model, (model no.D19BL, s/n A23490411020263) Since 2011, horizontal image began to narrow, now horizontal image H-size is 210 mm. vertical image size is ...


The horizontal deflection coil is shorted. There is no way to fix that, the entire tube would have to be replaced and that would cost as much as a new monitor.
Just buy a second-hand LCD monitor from here
