Question about Meade LX200GPS Telescope

1 Answer

Can't upload data from computer

I purchased the correct cable to connect the SCT to my computer but the Meade software is unable to detect the telescope. It was working for awhile and now has stopped responding. I suspect the control board is defective - any suggestions on repair or replacement?

Check and define/ assign your com ports thru autostar and consistantly use the same port everytime you connect.
Also some usb to serial adapters are unsuitable ; dont ask me why but some work with autostar and some just dont, belkin adapters almost never work but the keyspan brand works reliably. I had the same problem and the kspan adapter plus comport set up sorted it.
Hope this helps

How do i upload photos from cellphone to computer


  1. Determine Connection and Equipment Needed
    • 1 Determine the type of connection you will use to upload pictures from your cell phone to your PC. For example, if your telephone has BlueTooth capabilities and you have a notebook computer with BlueTooth, you may be able to upload pictures without purchasing any additional equipment.
    • 2 Purchase additional equipment needed, such a data link cable or blue tooth hardware to add to your computer. To find the data link cable for your individual cell phone, try visiting your local cell service provider retail store. Stores often keep these cables in stock. The cost for a cable runs from $20.00 and up.
    • 3 Make sure that the new cable fits properly in your cell phone and computer ports. The computer connection should be a basic USB connection.
    Download and Install Software
    • 1 Visit the website for your cell phone's manufacturer, for example the LG website. Do a search for downloads or software and locate the proper download for your cell phone and Windows (or MAC) platform on your PC.
    • 2 Install the software and follow directions carefully. Often, there will be very specific steps involved in ensuring that the cell phone and the computer recognize one another. For example, if you connect the phone before downloading and installing the software, the computer may not recognize your cell phone properly.
    • 3 Test the software and make sure everything is working properly. You should be able to pull up the software and upload all the pictures and videos on your telephone. Every cell phone manufacturer uses different software. While there isn't a single tutorial that will cover how to use every type available, most software comes with specific instructions and tutorials that will help you learn how to easily use the features available.

Can not connect using usb cable from computer to i9


I think i may have had a similar problem getting error around the lines of "Unable to access application data". What worked for me was, restarting my computer and opening the IDEN loader program on my computer first, then i plugged the cable into my phone this seemed to stop the error. i also had to make sure the USB connection was set to Application Access

HDD unable to detect at My Computer


Well first I would pull the hard drive out of the case. I would then get a USB to IDE/SATA drive cable. I would connect the drive not being able to be detected to another computer via USB.

If it works the drive is still good but the data might be corrupt. If the data is corrupt I would be sure to get any stuff you can off of it and basically reformat and reload.

Cant unload photos from phone to P.C.


Most camera phones have the ability to send photos in the form of an email. Of course, this is the way wireless providers would like you to do it since they get to charge additional fees for sending the picture mail. Normally, wireless providers charge a flat rate to send a picture as an email through their network, but you could also be billed on a per-kilobyte rate for the data used.

To e-mail photos to yourself, you'll need to make sure your phone is configured to send e-mails. Most phones purchased from the carrier are setup out of the box, but you'll need to determine that on a per-case basis. The process for selecting an image to send will vary on the individual phone model, so refer to the instructions in your telephone manual for instructions. When you're ready to send the picture, place your e-mail address in the "To:" field, and hit send. Bluetooth 33f594066a59a60a--32a96d82-11026e4c1f5--7f131573051387.jpgIf your phone is equipped with short-range Bluetooth wireless technology, you can often send images to a similarly equipped notebook or desktop computer. The best part about Bluetooth is that images transferred in this manner are completely free to you. Whether you send 1 picture or 50, it's still free. Not all phones are equipped with Bluetooth, but even less computers come with the technology built-in. However, you can add the technology to your computer by purchasing a USB Bluetooth module from a local electronics retailer. Don't worry about it being expensive, considering most modules retail for about $25.

Sending photos to a computer using Bluetooth is fairly simple... once you pair the phone to your computer. Sometimes the pairing process goes smoothly, and sometimes it doesn't. Either way, once you've gotten the two talking to each other, sending images to and from the phone is a snap. On top of this, Bluetooth allows you to send images and files to other Bluetooth phones without wires or charges.

Not all Bluetooth phones will be able to send images to a computer. Some carriers disable the file transfer profile before the phone is sent to the stores for sale, thereby forcing the users to either buy a data kit or send e-mails. This is what's referred to as the "no free lunch" approach to customer service. It's reasonable for them to assume that most would not spend fifty-dollars on an accessory, so they'll get to charge your account for every picture you send or make a monthly fee on a picture package.
Data Cable Any phone that has a built-in camera will most likely be able to connect to a computer via a USB data connection kit. Data kits are phone specific, so you'll need to make sure you get the correct one for your model phone. The kit includes the cable that plugs your phone into your computer's USB jack, as well as software to assist in transferring files to and from the phone.

Once connected, you'll have the same file transfer abilities as you would with Bluetooth, except with a wire. Unfortunately, you cannot transfer images to anything but a computer, so don't expect to move a picture from your phone to a friend's. Though data connect kits are often more expensive than Bluetooth modules, they do transfer files at a faster speed.
Removable Memory Cards 33f594066a59a60a--32a96d82-11026e4c1f5--7d412120809090.jpgMany newer phones have a slot for an external memory cards, especially models with higher resolution cameras. Since the images are stored on a removable memory card, transferring images to the computer is a breeze. All you need to do is pick up an external memory card reader from a local electronics store. You'll need to know what kind of card your phone uses before you go shopping to make sure the reader you buy supports the correct format.

Once your card reader is in place, merely remove the memory card from your phone, and insert it into the card reader. The computer will recognize the card and assign it a drive letter. Actually moving images is as easy as using the "cut and paste" commands in Windows Explorer. Just reinsert the card back into the phone when you're ready to take new pictures

Hope this may help;

Regards,
VOTIT
