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.

Hi all, Straight to business, My daughter got Stung with an iphone 5c, activation locked, can't get hold of the seller and it's locked to icloud and password etc.. any help would be greatly appreciated,...

Best option is to flash the stock ROM firmware on the phone. Issues with IiCloud, password, activation locked are nutty/naughty ones.

Ok, make flashing stock ROM firmware a last resort.

Attempt a hard reset and see if this helps first.

How do I reset my hp officejet 6110 all-in-one printer? It keeps asking me to align cartridges.

Press menu and then press the Right Arrow key until you get to maintenance screen then press enter.
Option 2 is you align print cartridges.
Automatic cartridge alignment
Perform the following steps to align the ink cartridges:

1. Disconnect the power cord from the unit, wait five seconds, and then plug it back in. This will reinitialize the unit.
2. Print another alignment test page. If the Press Enter to align message is not currently on the front panel display, complete the following steps to print an alignment page:
1. Press Setup or Menu on the front panel (depending on the model).
2. Press the right arrow button (>) until Maintenance or Tools is displayed, and then press Enter or OK (depending on the model).
3. Press the right arrow button (>) until Align Print Cartridges is displayed, and then press Enter or OK (depending on the model).
3. To determine if the automatic alignment is functioning correctly, look into the output tray as the alignment page is printing; a blue light should be visible periodically on the page as the cartridges move back and forth. If this light is not visible, the product will not be able to align the cartridges and will require service. Service the product.
4. If the blue light is visible and the alignment pages are printing correctly, but the alignment pages still fails, there still may be a hardware problem with the unit.
If there are no other printing problems and you wish to continue, use the information in the Bypassing the ink cartridge alignment section below to bypass the alignment. The information from last successful alignment will be used.
If the message keeps reappearing or other print quality problems occur, service the product.

How do I align the cartridge after I replace it. The fax printed out a sheet and the lines are not straight. I went to align cartridge and then I am not sure how to adjust the lines


Follow below steps to complete alignment.

  • With the Cartridge compartment cover open, insert the print cartridge into the print cartridge cradle with the contacts facing into the unit. When the cartridge is seated in the print cartridge cradle, push the top of the cartridge towards the back of the unit until the print cartridge clicks into place.
  • Close the cartridge compartment cover and control panel.
  • Press the Start/Enter button.
  • On the keypad, press 1 if the replacement print cartridge is new or 2 if the replacement print cartridge is old
NOTE: When you put in a new cartridge, you must choose 1: New .When you put in a used cartridge, choose 2: Used . This helps you to check the correct amount of ink you have left.
  • An alignment page will print and 06 [01-11] will show on the display
  • Look at the alignment page and select the number under the straightest line, and then press that number on the keypad and then press Start/Enter .
