Question about Celestron NexStar 11 Telescope

GPS not working

Hi guys.
I just bought one of these (last in stock!). Turned it on, pressed 'enter' and the screen went straight to alignment options. Unfortunately none of those options were "GPS align", all I got was 'Sky align, two star, etc....
I went to the 'Utilities' menu to check that the GPS as 'on'. It was.
I tried the old trick of switching the telescope off and on again. Same problem. I switched the GPS off, then on again. Same problem.
Have I got a dud!?
Help please!!!! :-)

Nope! Sounds normal. The GPS is used as the surface point and time refrence, but it still needs the star fixes to orient the axis. 2 star alignment is generally for Alt-Az mounting, while you can use 1 star for rapid setup on a permanent equatorial mount.

An address was on our gps that is not recognized. Can an address be inadvertently entered? My spouse thinks I went for a "midnight outing" last night because this mystery address was somehow...


If you were browsing the map on the satnav it's possible that you pressed the screen at that point which would give the option of saving it to the favourites folder. If you then pressed SAVE it would save to favourites.

Another possibility is that when you were driving the car you pressed the car icon, which shows your location. This can automatically save the location to favourites if the car was moving or if you were stopped it would ask you if you wanted to save it.

The printer prints an allignment sheet every time its turned on.


Bypassing the print cartridge alignment It is possible to bypass the alignment page and use the information from the last successful alignment. Print quality may not be as good, but the product will operate. The table below describes how to bypass the cartridge alignment. Try either one of these: Press and hold the Enter button, and then press Setup or Press and hold the Setup button, and then press Options (or Copy Options ).

STOCK IN ONE POSITION


Try a GPS reset, exit navigation, click on setup, click on GPS reset. then restart navigation. check the gps status screen to make sure you are getting signals. if not, you could have a failed antenna or GPS receiver in the unit.

Celestron nexstar 11" gps scope


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.

Hello folks! I bought my unit on 11/2006. After 1532 lamp hours on eco-mode, my unit would start shutting off after just 2-3 minutes. Same problems you guys are having. Based on the comments I've received from the TECH guy where I purchased the unit, it appears that these units have IRIS problems. Here's how you can tell if its an IRIS problem...according to the TECH guy:

1. Get the unit powered up as usual.
2. Wait until its projecting enough light to see a menu on the screen.
3. Using the remote control, PRESS the "POWER" button again to see the power off confirmation screen, then PRESS the ARROW keys in the following order: RIGHT, UP, DOWN, UP, DOWN, then PRESS ENTER.
4. The EXT OPTION menu should then be displayed.
5. SELECT the "SELF CHECK" option using the arrow keys.
6. Look for the word "IRIS. If that word or any word on that line appears in "RED" color, then the IRIS is faulty and needs to be replaced.
I just called Panasonic's Service dept. and they gave me a CASE NUMBER and asked me to FAX my original INVOICE to them. She told me they are going to review my claim and see if they can provide assistance or whatever. Apparently...Panasonic knows of this problem according to the TECH guy at the place where I bought my unit in late 2006. Good luck! Steve 717-891-2062

Garmin nuvi 660 forget my pin


The only options you have when it comes to a locked unit is to enter the correct PIN, go to the location where the PIN was set, or send the unit back to Garmin. There is no way to unlock a PIN locked unit without the correct PIN or location.
