Cannot power up my Meade LX200

I have a Meade LX200 8". I bought it around 13 years ago. At the moment, it will not turn on. I pulled off the panel and checked fuse which is good. I measured for power all over the panel and it was there, but it acts like there
is nothing. Even the 3V battery is new. Any ideas?

Check to make sure there are no bad connections under the swith itself. My Celestron C8 mount has similar problems and if I mess with the switch it will power up.

I bought the tv new 2-3 years ago and used to work great but now I can't get it to turn on.


Are you trying to turn it on via the remote control? If so, turn the T.V. off at the set, and even go as far as pulling the plug. Wait half an hour, then plug in and switch on - I hope it works. For some reason, T.V's tend to "forget" their internal programming sometimes, and you have to completely switch them off for their memories to be reset. Good luck.

Is the control panel red light ON? If not you have a power circuit board problem.

Meade will want the scope returned for repairs.

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:

Signal lights, fuse box and signal light relay in 2001 Volkswagen


The bulbs on these cars can be delicate. Some get replaced every year or so-( headlights, tail and brake) and some I've never touched in 8 years (my front turn signals and marker lights)

The fast blinking occurance is normal when a turn signal bulb goes out.

The rear lights are common to blow, I keep spares in the glovebox.

Make sure you were given the correct bulb, check to see that it works and isn't defective. Also there is an empty spot in the rear bulb holder- make sure you didn't mistakenly pop a bulb in there cause' it won't work.

The front right signal light is in the right headlight housing. Open the hood and on the back of the housing there are two plastic caps. One is curved and one is rectangular- you want to take off the rectangular one.

Open the drivers door and on the side of the dash there's a cover. This is the main fuse block. Use a coin or carefully with a screwdriver pry it open. To check a fuse pull it out, noting exactly where it came from, and visually inspect it to see if it is blown.

Fuse # 2- turn signal system
Fuse #4- License plate lights
Fuse #7- back up lights
Fuse #13- brake lights
Fuse #22- parking and side marker lights, right
Fuse #23- parking and side marker lights, left

The turn signal flasher is integrated into the hazzard button in the center of the dash. If all else is good and you suspect the flasher is bad, which is a good possibility, call a VW dealer and have them run your VIN# to check for recalls. The hazzard switch for some cars around your year had a recall on em'.

302911 manual? bought the tele scope about 6 years ago,now my grandson wants to use it but I lost the manual ...can you help please


You will not find a manual for that telescope. However Meade maintains a web site with all of their manuals. Look under REFRACTOR or REFLECTOR for one that is similar to your telescope. They all go together in a similar fashion.

I bought a Magnavox plasma


Hi there! Sounds like the panel is in protection. The Y and Z-Sustain and/or Control board may be at fault. If there are fuses, check these first and replace. If not successful the boards may have to be replaced. Also check the Voltages on the Power supply are correct to manufacturers specs. If not familiar with any of this please refer to a repairer. Bset Wishes and Good Luck, JUS004

Dead on arrival!

Meade can fix these, but they must be shipped back to the factory.
