If this is a new scope return it.

If you bought it used it is already broken.

Only a few things you can try-- borrow another hand controller and see if that works. and replace the hand controller cable. Beyond that the scope will need to be dis-assembled and probably a circuit board repaired.

Meade will repair the scope but you will need to send it to them.

Without a porro-prism or a erect image diagonal, all telescopes show a reversed image. This is normal. There is no up/down in space. If you want to use the scope for terrestrial viewing, see first sentence. Do not use a erect image accessory for astronomy since it reduces the contrast.

Could be anything from a bad hand controller cable, LOW battery power, or a blown out hand controller.

Check the cable and the batteries first.

Calc north not working


Are you running this scope off of the internal batteries? If you are put in fresh batteries. The hand controller will go wacko once the batteries fall below about 60% charge. We always recommend that goto scopes be run from a separate 12 volt power pack. If new batteries to not solve the problem, return the scope to the dealer while it is still under warranty.

Autostar wont turn on


Unless Sam's has a batch of all bad telescopes???? Check that you put the batteries in correctly. You may have one or all reversed?

and or try a separate 12 volt power source if they included a cable. If not return the scope again!

Dead on arrival!

Meade can fix these, but they must be shipped back to the factory.

Try to remove the battery en put the adapter in electricity.
Try to start again.
If the notebook starts,
replace your battery.

If this doesn't work,
just go to the store where you bought it
