Question about Meade ETX-70 (240 x 70mm) Telescope
You did tighten the DEC knob? If you did the altitude gears (a worm gear) is not engaing properly. You can either return it to Meade for repairs or attempt them yourself.
I would also check that you have fresh batteries and that the UP button on the hand controller is not broken.
