Question about Meade LX200ACF 10 Advanced ComaFree Telescope with UHTC 10106003 (400 x 355mm)
Hello. Your problem may simply be that the cable connections have a bit of oxidation on them. To remove this go to any autoparts store and get an aerosol can of electrical contact cleaner. Follow the instructions on the can.
That said, if the steps above do not solve the problems, you may have to go to the meade instruments website and download the latest software http://www.meade.com/support/index.html

I'm wondering if this is a battery related issue- the 8 C cells have an expected life of about 20 hrs, and they may need changing, or the contacts might need cleaning. Not sure if you've tried new batteries, so that might be the first thing to try.
I would connect and reconnect all cords and connections, just to make sure they're tight and secure (sometimes reconnecting connectors "remakes" a critical connection).
Other than doing those things, there is not much else I can think of that the user can do, which means the unit will have to be troubleshot and serviced.
Here is Meade's website, and if you contact support, they may have some ideas of what is going on, and what might be failing. It seems this issue is software related, but hardware failures can look the same, so someone with experience will have to determine the issue.
Here is Meade's support site:
Good luck, and hope it's just a loose connector.
