Question about Celestron StarHopper 10 Telescope
Its not a "Starhopper 10" but that's the only imput that worked. when switched on, the drive performs the self diagnostic check, 16 ex becomes the default, then the machine slews West at a rate of four seconds to the field of view at 40 X., then pauses for two seconds before repeating the slew. This continues, irrespective of imputs. Changing the speed has no effect. Help! Mike

It sounds like the telescope has some kind of corrupt instructions it is trying to follow every time you turn it on. Obviously it's being caught in a loop. Since you can't control it to edit those, this is going to be a headache. There should be instructions to do a factory reset in the instruction manual - they may not call it that, but basically you want to restore the settings it had when shipped. Try that, if you can. If that doesn't work, it may be because this model's factory reset is not a true full reset. There are a few settings that are unaffected by it. However, if you can find a firmware upgrade, it will reset those settings. I was unable to find an appropriate upgrade to your firmware, but you may have better luck. Also, when I say "upgrade" it doesn't actually have to be an upgrade. Reloading the same version you have now would do the trick. If neither of those work for you, there's always the old trick of cutting power. Remove batteries and any external power source, and levae it that way overnight. That should be long enough for anything in static memory to be lost, and might just do the trick.
