The primary mirror of the N4 is very securely held in place. The secondary is an aluminum coating on the back of the meniscus lens and can't move. I think what you are seeing is the secondary mirror's baffle tube becoming misaligned. This can happen if the scope is left in a hot automobile. Contact Celestron support for repair services.

Drivers side heated mirror turned amber


1999 blazer mirror problems. First I would replace the mirror. You can get an after market right side/left side, heated on eBay very cheap. that's where I get mine. They work fine. But you say the mechanic never fix your other problem in the first place. So I wouldn't no where to start. What is the other problem? Im just taking a guess here. But check your connections under your door pannel. Make sure no wires are bare or crushed. Make sure if any, fuses are not bad. Make sure your heat system that runs the heat to your mirror's is operating proper. You might have a short somewhere or maybe its just time to replace the mirror. To me when you see an amber color to your mirror it's the same as a light bulb blowing out or the mirror is getting to hot and shorted out. Good Luck.

Power mirrors not working, have tried moving them manually (2001 Ford Crown Victoria). Both sides only goes down, not up.


If the mirrors only move down and not up I would suspect the mirror switch , the mirrors use one motor to move the glass up and down,and another motor to move them in or out , and if the mirrors move down the motors are working.the only other possible problem would be a wiring but highly unlikely due to the fact that the turning the motors in a different direction is done by switching the polarity to the motor which requires both wires to be good to make the motors move in the down direction ..check the mirror switch I am sure you"ll find that"s your problem

Rearview mirror fell off windshield! Not broken...


the mirror should simply slide over the metal mount (button) that is glued to the window.

loosen the set screw on the mirror mount...

hold the rear view mirror mount on the glass just above the metal mount (wide end of plastic opening facing down)

slide it into place...
secure it by tightening down set screw you loosened earlier.

Passenger side mirror came out of housing.


Ok,here's the deal.You'll need lots of patience. The mirror has two threaded stubs about 1-1.5 in. long that move inward and outward to move the mirror in or out. These two are about two to three inches apart.
1. So take these 'two stubs' out of the mirror housing and make sure you snap 'em into the back of the mirror plate (plastic plate) where the mirror is glued to.
2. Now with lots of patience, move the mirror back into the housing making sure that the stubs are inserted into their respective holes. But don't push 'em all the way in.
3. Instead push the mirror little by little until every part is lined up to its correspondent receiving hole in the mirror housing
4. Make sure every parts matches its corresponding spot and keep pushing the mirror back into the housing.
5. You'll get to a point where you need to apply force (but be careful don't apply too much) to snap the whole mirror plate (plastic plate) back into the housing.

did you check the switch for the mirrors sometimes its just a simple fix as replaceing a faulty switch
the switch would go out faster then the conventional mirror would try a replacement switch

I suggest trying a different eyepiece first to see if that's the problem. Otherwise, if it was moved without adequate protection, there is a chance the mirror was shifted or damaged. A damaged mirror can't really be fixed since it's specs are very rigid. If it turns out to be a problem with the mirror the best thing to do is find an expert on telescope mirrors to try and fix the problem.
