Here is Meade's manuals web site--

They also have a customer support phone number-

Either the gear is loose and not engaging or is broken-- or the clutch is not engaging when you tighten the base.

The knob on the fork arm is tightened? Correct. You can slew manually, but cannot do a two star alignment?

Is all of this correct? Post a reply with additional information.

You have trained the drives -- correct?

My Meade 90mm refractor with autostar has a stripped gear, crappy little nylon gear that drives the worm gear that rotates the telescope. Can I get relacement gears or do I have to get a new drive system....


No one but Meade makes parts for this scope. Do you intend to have a custom GEAR machined??? This will be more than just sending it back to Meade; which you will need to do to get it repaired.

Bought the scope about 4 years ago. Fairly light use and not used in last 12 months. Was checking it recently and replaced batteries etc. Horizontal motor movement is fine however no vertical motor...


Do a RESET on the hand controller. Re-enter Time, Date, and SITE, and CALIBRATE motors.

Also sometimes a bad hand controller cable will cause this. You can buy another cable directly from Meade. Call them here:

MEADE ETX 125 Motors have stopped


The ETX125 is notorious for bad motor control. Weasner's Mighty ETX web site has links to repair centers that are more reasonable than Meade. They also have a QA section to assist with diagnostics.

Meade autostar hand unit fails after 2 seconds changed hand units


You damaged the circuits inside the hand controller-- unless you are an electronics whiz these cannot be repaired.

However you can find them for sale directly from Meade and on Ebay (used) usually for about $80.
