I was trying to insert the ac adaptor to the outlet of the telescope. It seems that it was short circuted and a smoke came out & I smell something burned. Is there a sort of a fuse that will prevent...


No, you burned out some of the circuits on the internal power board. Meade can repair the scope but you must send it to them.

That's why I always use a 12 volt battery pack and NEVER use the 110volt adapter

I need an 8 x 25mm Right angle viewfinder for a Meade ETX-125EC Astro Telescope


Many retailers sell these. The catch is to find one that will MOUNT to the ETX125. Try these two retailers:

http://www.optcorp.com/

Call them and see what they have.

Light on telescope on powerup but nothing from autostar.


If Meade does not offer help, there is a 3rd party that does 'supercharging' of ETX models:

My Meade ETX-125EC Telescope has a broken horizontal lock lever where can I get a replacement? thanks


Meade can probably sell you one :

You might also find something that would work to tighten it at a well stocked hardware store.

Not getting power to the drive motors


I own an ETX90. Is the power light on the computer control panel ON?

If yes then the board is probably OK. If NO- either the power cable is bad or the board is blown.

Try a new power cable first, and or install batteries and see if that works. If the light is on you could have a loose wire inside. Re-seat the connections inside the base. Read these instructions:

If it still does not work you can send it back to Meade for repairs. Call them about that here:

Meade "might" sell you the replacement part. But most likely they will want you to return the scope for repairs.

MEADE ETX 125 Motors have stopped


The ETX125 is notorious for bad motor control. Weasner's Mighty ETX web site has links to repair centers that are more reasonable than Meade. They also have a QA section to assist with diagnostics.

Meade ETX-125EC Telescope Problem


Well, when I got the unit, indeed it would not power up at all. I could see no burning or signs of arcing.

I looked online for an internal picture of the drive and fitted the cables back in according to the image.

Tadahhhh, one working drive, only works on the 12v though, Batteries wont work although I have measured the voltage and they are all fully charged. Seems the previous owner had removed the looms and put them back incorrectly.
