Question about Meade Optics

1 Answer

I have an LX200 10" that will not function properly in vertical drive mode. In alignment mode, vertical drive seems to operate at high sped. When alignment star is selected, horz works normally but vertical goes straight up (quickly) and forces me to shut down to protect gears. In manual mode, the drive speed in Horz is normal and adjustable, but Vert is at max speed and seems locked on high. Accordingly it is nearly impossible to align this thing. What do you recommend?

SOURCE: Start Align with NexStar 4SE

Did you enter the correct TIME, DATE, and LOCATION? and yes you may have aligned on to the wrong stars -- they need to be "near" the center.

SOURCE: Celestron NexStar alignment problem

Several questions-

1. Are you SURE you are choosing the correct alignment star?

2. Are all the settings correct like-- Location, Time, Date, Daylight savings time.

SOURCE: problem with alignment of Meade LX90 8" telescope

Start from scratch-

RESET the hand controller.

Calibrate motors using the same power source you will use outside.

Re-train the drives

Calibrate sensors on Polaris

Use either the 110 volt power cord, or buy a 12 volt power pack and the proper Meade 12 volt cable. (www.scopestuff.com carries the right 12 volt cable)

If your scope is NOT the LNT or GPS model you must level the tripod before you align. Go to home depot and buy the $3 small plastic two way bubble level, or the bulls-eye style bubble level.

Further trouble, I suggest going to the LX90 Yahoo group forum, and asking questions there.

Good Luck

Why will the Pioneer RT 707 not work in playback mode?


No it is the same motor for both functions. Just check does the record/play switch operate or move when you operate the record function? I have a hunch that is the problem it may also be that the switch contacts are dirty or worn.Try to play a recording you made on another machine if it does sound and play on the other machine then the problem can only be this switch. Some more upstairs decks do have separate amplifiers for play and record .Nakamichi. Studer Revox Tandberg Uher and the such comes to mind These are those machines offering "Off tape" recording monitor. Then it will sport three heads and not only two I hope this gives clues where to start looking for problems

The Lexmark x5495 printer is not printing correctly. The printout is not aligned properly. The printout is crooked. How can you solve this problem?


Try to re-seat your cartridges and make sure they are properly inserted in the cartridge carrier.
If that doesn't help, please do the Align Cartridges function on your printer. From the printer operator panel, while on Copy mode, press the Menu button > Tools > Maintenance > Align Cartridges. You printer will then print a test page that will help align the cartridges.
After the page is printed, try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed. Thanks.

The alignment would not affect your breaking as the alignment only controles the direction that the front wheels face. You may need to check your rotors and make sure they do not need replaced and check the breaks while you are at it. The pads should be evenly worn and the rotor should be evenly worn as well. There should be no deeps grooves in the rotor or break pads.

What is the focusing screen display?


There are two display modes newly added for the DiMAGE 7i, grid and scale. The grid mode is to show a grid over the entire screen. This makes it easy to align the camera to objects vertically or horizontally. In the scale display mode, horizontal and vertical lines cross at the image center to divide the view to four sections, and each axis is scaled. This function is useful for close-up photography. The grid or scale on display is not recorded.
