Obviously either your hand controller is broken and or a circuit inside the scope.

This can be caused by many things-- such as dirt or grease on the encoders inside or a slipping clutch. I know you just bought this telescope, but Bushnell is NOT KNOWN for having quality telescopes.

To get the goto to work everything must be according to the manual.

The tripod needs to be perfectly level-- time, date, and site must be accurate, and the alignment objects must each be centered in the eyepiece. Sounds like you also have electronic issues with the hand controller. Only Bushnell can repair this scope.

Can you reverse the cable end to the hand controller-- a bad cable can cause this. Also low power supply, depleted batteries can also cause this.

Return the hand controller for replacement if batteries and or a new cable do not fix this.

Motors dont work even with new batteries


I had the same problem. I removed the motor and drive assembly and used a pair of pilers to gently rotate the drive gear a few times in both directions. I re-installed it and it began to work again. I also noticed that the grease on the drive gear and shaft was very thick. Cleaned and up and re-applied a lithium based grease and it helped even more. Be sure to remove all old grease from the aluminium block that the drive gear shaft rest in. Good luck.
