Car won't start and starter is only making clunking noise

You can take out the spark plugs, keep track of your spark plug wire order, try to crank it over see if the engine turns over.

Check voltage on your new battery, some need to charge when new.

check for corrosion on the battery and starter cables.

My ETX-60 remote turns on but immediately turns back off, ive tried new batteries but it still turns right off, the red light on the telescope stays on but the remot doesnt, any fixes?

About the only thing you can do is buy another hand controller-- contact Meade for a new one.

I am assuming the hand controller cable cannot be replaced check it anyway and see if you can get someone to replace the plastic plug that goes into the telescope on the cable. Sometime these go bad. Any "network" cable guy should be about to replace the end.

Motors won't turn

Are the batteries FRESH? if they are you may have a bad motor. Contact Meade customer service:

It sounds like BAD batteries. Try new ones first before sending it to Meade.

The circuit board that holds the batteries for my ETX is corroded and I need a new one. How can I get one?

Is the problem that you left the batteries in the battery compartment? (a no-no, BTW.)

If so, you might get away by cleaning the board--if the circuit traces and components haven't been damaged.

Try mixing a tablespoon of backing soda with a cup of warm water. Using whatever applicator seems appropriate--a Q-tip, or small brush--clean the corrosion from the board with this solution. Wipe and dry thoroughly.

Inspect the board for broken circuit traces and damaged components.

If nothing is obvious, put fresh batteries in and try it--it will work, or it won't.

If it does, congratulations. If it doesn't contact Meade customer support at this link:

Good Luck!

Can you turn on a tedelex ec2975 tv without a remote control?

did you put new batteries in the remote? is the transmitter lens on the remote clean?(on the front edge). is the pick-up window on the t-v clean? (probably a small plastic rectangle to the right or left of the bottom controls). check it out!
good luck!

My MEADE etx 105 telescope remote wont turn on but my telescope will. Can you tell me what my problem is please.

Could be just a bad hand controller cable. Check with Meade for a new one.

If it won't power on, this likely indicates that your motherboard is fried and needs to be replaced. Have you tried connecting to a wall charger? If you connect it to a wall charger and it STILL doesn't power on, then your motherboard is fried for sure.

you simply fried your battery by overcharging it. Just get a new one, let it fully charge and fully die twice before you start normal charging. Then you will want to only charge it for about 2 to 3 hours or find a charger that has a smart chip that tells it when to stop charging once the battery is full.
