Yes you can just make sure that the power cord has the CORRECT pin polarity- you can order the 12 volt cigarette lighter style cord from Meade.

You can try Three things:

1. Do you have fully charged batteries-- or a good power supply.

2. Sometimes the cable to the hand controller needs to be replaced

3. Execute a RESET on the hand controller and reload the firmware--

If these do not fix it, the hand controller is defective and must be replaced. You can find a used 497 controller for about $80 on AstroMart.com

and Meade can also sell you a new one.

Meade lx-90 dec printed circuit board bad. where


Since you already disassembled the scope-- you can send the board to Ron Sampson and he should be able to repair it. He fixes main boards and hand controllers (including the screen and keyboard on the hand controller!)

If you post a message on the Yahoo LX90 group looking for Ron Sampson he will answer you. You can then email or phone him for instruction on how to send him the board.

ARE YOU SURE it's the board? It could be a bad keyboard or a bad cable on the hand controller. You should get another hand controller and cable and test it before you send it off. Can you borrow a hand controller and cable from anyone.... or from a local scope retailer?

Blowing fuses in power supply


One thing to check, would be the filter capacitator that is on the front circuit board. They are known to become shorted. The cap is fairly large, and may be mounted on the side of the circuit board that faces the front panel. Clip one lead, and apply power. If the fuse does not blow, then that is it. A second possible component, is the polarity protection diode, that is near the power jack, next to the fuse. If it is shorted, then the fuse will blow every time.
