Question about Meade LX200GPS Telescope
I bought a used LX200 GPS last week. When switched on, the display on the Autostar just shows "Initializing . . . Smart Drive" but nothing happens after that. On one occasion the scope turnd in RA for some time and then stopped but there was no change in the display.
I have kept the power on for more than half an hour with nothing happening and repeated it several times. I had switched on the scope inside the house to ensure that the initial setup etc., is ok. Later I moved it on to my roof top and tried to do the setup but the result was the same.
The person who sold me had told me that he had a problem when he had switched on inside the house and got it fixed with help fromMeade. I had tested it before buying and it seemed to be working alright.
Is there something wrong with the GPS or something else? The batteries are quite new and I think there is no problem with the power. It has 1.4g version. Can someone help? I am not in US and calling Meade is not really an option for me.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).
