Question about Meade 8" LX90 LNT Schmidt Cassegrain Telescope with SmartFinder w/ FREE UPS
Hand controller went completely dead while using it one night. Tried different battery packs. Will not light up. Check coiled cable continuity at both ends. ch'k ok. Red led still lights up on the telescope's plugin port. Telescope's encoders inside scope still light up. Do I need a new Autostar Hand controller?
Had the same problem. Took it to a dealer and we put a new controller on but the funny thing was that my old controller worked fine on another scope but it would not work on mine. Agreed with "Guest" above - Mead's after sales service is bad.

I ended up replacing the Hand Controller with a new one.
After that it started working. I brought the new one on E-bay.
They seem to have the best prices. Forget about talking to Meade. Their innate ability to reply to your phone calls or emails just doesn't work. I will ***** buy a telescope from them again.

A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
The service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).
