Question about Bushnell NorthStar 78-8831 (525 x 76mm) Telescope
I cannot grt the motors to work on my 78-8831. I even tried new batteries. Is there a fuse?
I had the same problem. I removed the motor and drive assembly and used a pair of pilers to gently rotate the drive gear a few times in both directions. I re-installed it and it began to work again. I also noticed that the grease on the drive gear and shaft was very thick. Cleaned and up and re-applied a lithium based grease and it helped even more. Be sure to remove all old grease from the aluminium block that the drive gear shaft rest in. Good luck.

I posted to a problem with the handset not working and I'll ask the same here. You are switching on the small black button by the battery compartment? It should light up red and power up the handset. Then it's just a case of going through the menu, picking an alignment point and the telescope should start moving automatically.
