Celestron skyprodigy 70

Sky Prodigy does not have you align on stars but self aligns on images from the mount's camera (much like satellites do to orient), so ignore any incorrect suggestions about picking alignment stars, centering them, moving axes, entering correct dates or info. You should just turn it on and it figures everything out in 10 or so minutes alone.

Thiscode is likely a hand controller failure and you need to call Celestron. Mine did this too. good luck, you will need it...

2) Test the input voltage motor, if there are the MOTOR is faulty need REPAIR.

3) Test the output voltage board, for input voltage motor, if there are NOT the board is faulty.
4) SEE THE BLOCK DIAGRAM, whatever component can be faulty.
However you must test the power cord for short circuit between cable, repair, and look inside according the BLOCK, and proceed with logic, see any loose wires, or some wires touching the carcase, some filter, coil, power supply USE the VOM.

Microwave turntable is jerky rather than smoothly turning... it's a Whirlpool Gold GH8155XMB-0, made in October 2003 ... is there some sort of belt that can be replaced or motor or something? Otherwise,...

first check the roller under the turntable is correctly seated if so pull the drive coupling out from inside the oven and check for damage. If all of the above are OK you will need a replacenet turntable motor

Minn Kota 24v auto pilot. will track correctly

Usually this means that there is a crack in the coil cord or there is something metal close to the head of the motor.
The coil cord can be checked while you are out fishing next time by grabbing the cord (black coiled cord from base to head of the motor) and stretching it and pulling on it. If the motor reacts to the pulling then that's the problem.
best of luck!

I have a 99 grand prix i have replaced the power window switch twice now and it has started to smoke and stops working how can i find out if it has a short?

It could be the power window motor itself is drawing too much current from being worn out, which cause switch & wiring to heat up, but by rights, a fuse should have blown unless someone installed a higher amperage fuse than what recommended. have you owned it since new? Also, try spraying silicone spray down the side of the felt tracks that the window slides up & down in, to ease the load a bit on the motor. If it keeps doing it, you may end up replacing motor, but have a mechanic or someone with an amp gauge, check the draw when operating & that will tell the story if replacement is needed.

FH101 head jerky panning movement

Not knowing where you reside, I don't know if a certain product is available to you but there are several different brands and some generics in the US. The original oil additive was called STP, there was a competing brand called Motor Honey (shudder) and in many auto supply houses you can find a generic sold for 'high mileage engines.' It is a refined petroleum product with a very high viscosity and is sticky in nature. If you can access the surfaces causing the problem, a dot ot two on either will probably help with the jerkiness you are having. I have used the stuff for similar gliding surfaces and the only disadvantage is the tendency to 'creep' so keeping the applied quantity low is a must.

Power steering pump vibrates

I have a similar problem. The power steering felt jerky just the moment you start and drive off. My mechanic flushed out the old fluid with a power steering flush fluid and replenish with new fluid and that did the trick. The old fluid looked clean in the resovior but down in the steering rack, its a different story. The fluid is dark and contained some sludge. No wonder the steering assist was jerky.

Not working

Open the service panel in the front bottom, so you can see the motor. It sounds like it is locked-up. Look at the motor and try to free up the motor impellor.
