Usually these must come from Meade-- call their customer service department here:

Also you can contact Ron Sampson on the LX200 Yahoo group and he will repair the board if you can remove it and send it to him.

Blown circuit board


You will need to remove the blown circuit board and replace it with a new one. Unless you know exactly what components are blown and have the utilities and material to replace the components yourself.

Main Speaker Not Working


IS there a circuit board inside that speaker? You are correct about the general loss of sound quality that usually occurs with speaker failure. Best way to check is with a meter or a scope

I have a DS-2000 Series Refracting telescope, it will automatically go up and down with the hand held computer, but will not move side to side.


You DID tighten the clutches-- and you do have fresh batteries in the scope?

Either the hand controller buttons are broken or you have some kind of damage inside the scope base-- or a blown circuit board on that motor.

No power with batteries or 12 v adapter. can i get a replacement autostar hub for my tripod?


The light on the panel does NOT come on -- correct. Is this a new telescope? If it is return it for replacement as a circuit board is blown inside the scope.

Blank autostar screen,light but no message,bought new one same thing,buttons still do what they are suppose to,running blind help!


You do have batteries inside? I suppose. If you do the power panel light should be on (red)--- if it is the scope is powered up BUT THE CORD going to the hand controller is broken. Buy a new hand controller cord.

If the power light is NOT on then a circuit board is probably defective inside the scope base. Meade can repair this but you must send them the telescope.

No, your done. Now replace the Y-Main, that's the large one you found the fuse blown on and replace the two buffer boards that the Y plugs into. Those are the two at the far left. The part numbers are on the boards. So that's 3 boards you will need. sometimes they sell the buffers together as a pair which is cheaper. DO NOT buy from second hand resellers. Always buy new when it comes to plasma sets.

Runaway DECLINATION is what this is called. Usually it can be fixed with a new hand controller cable. If a new cable does not fix it, then it has a blown motor circuit board and must be returned to Meade for repairs.

ETX-125 Autostar controller not working


I assume the small red light on the power panel is ON. ???

If it is the scope is receiving power--- check to make sure the cable from the hand controller is plugged in properly-- jiggle the cable to see if you have a loose BAD cable. Before you panic --- try another cable or reverse the ends ---

Before you buy another hand controller try a new cable-- scopestuff.com sells a nice long flexible one for the 497 hand controller.
