    You might want to check for a broken cable between the scope and the handcontroller. Buy a new replacement cable, they are NOT expensive.

    If this does not work the follow these steps:

    1. Do a RESET on the hand controller

    2. Calibrate motors

    3. Train the drives

    4. Check TIME. DATE, and SITE to see if they are correct.

    5. Do a Calibrate sensors on Polaris

    6. Do an Automatic alignment

    If the scope does not work after the above procedure it must be returned to Meade for repairs.

Kobelco sr135 excavator won't slew right or left.


You have an hydraulic problem in most likeyhood. Check the fluid level, check the lines. I don't know exactly what a Kobelco is, but anytime a contractors piece of machinery won't slew right or left it has been a hydraulic fluid problem.

My immobiliser wont let me start the bike


This may help you ... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RTy_JKI9cQ0 ... probably not.

Resetting your security system depends on which system you have. To do any of them, you must have the fob. If you don't have the fob, only Harley can clear. Be prepared to prove ownership when you arrive.

To reset the code with a TSSM equipped bike, you will:
1) Set your kill switch to off
2) Quickly turn the ignition switch on, off, on, off, on
3) Immediately press and let go of the left turn signal switch twice (press, let go, press, let go)
4) Press and let go of your fob button twice (press fairly hard, it's designed to resist being pressed by keys and what not in your pocket)
5) Current PIN number will be displayed on odometer
6) Change the PIN by pressing the left signal until the desired number is reached
7) Press the fob button twice to cycle to the next number and repeat step 7
8) Press and let go the right signal and turn ignition off when 5 digit PIN is satisfactory
NOTE: Steps 2 through 4 must be completed in quick succession of each other.

Now you can have the bike armed, and disarm with the PIN (example PIN will be 25522 in the following steps):
1) Ignition switch to Accessories
2) Immediately press both turn signals at the same time (red key light on you speedometer will flash rapidly if done right)
3) Press and let go the left signal 2 times
4) Press and let go the right signal once
5) Press and let go the left signal 5 times
6) Press and let go the right signal once
7) Repeat for each of the last three numbers of the PIN (left 5 times, right once, left 2 times, right once, left 2 times, right once)
8) Red key on speedo will stop blinking if done right (security has been disarmed)
NOTE: Steps 2 through 7 must be completed in quick succession of each other.



To reset the code with a HFSM equipped bike, you will:
1) Have your key fob near the bike
2) Set your kill switch to off
3) Quickly turn the ignition switch on, off, on, off, on
4) Immediately press and let go of the left turn signal switch twice (press, let go, press, let go)
5) Press and let go the right signal once

I purchased a new battery for my Toshiba Satellite L505D-55983. The second time I turned it on it went as far as the desk top and then shut itself down.


as soon as you turn your coputor on it f1,if your battery is any good you should get in stroll down to start windows normally the programs you had should reload and it should be the way you left it. if doesnt work go trough the same proedure but hit f8 restore your computor to factory condition or restore it the day before it broke just follow instruction .you have a drop down menu with your name on it or the ststem itll ask for a password that would be the same as you use to get inthe computor be patient if its done right it take time to configure your windows .if computor doesnt turn on than the new battery is not any good

Calibrate motors and then TRAIN the drives-- this sets the gear backlash.

You should Calibrate motors every time you take it outside and Train drives at least once every year. The symptom you describe is called "rubberbanding".

Train the drives.

Be sure that the Azimuth Axis is Lock, you migth want to try and move the telescope in the Azimuth to make sure it is it is locked. Be carful not to force it. I have seen on some post where the locking part of the Azimuth somtimes breaks. and the Azimuth Axis will just spin freely Locked down or not.
