All of Meade's manuals are on this web site:

The LX10 is VERY similar to the LX3 --- look at the LX10 manual.

Hi I have a meade ETX 105 pe I can get the scope to move Alt motion with the controller but it wont move in the Azimuth position with the controller. Might I be doing something wrong

This can be caused by 4 things-

A stuck button on the hand controller.

A bad hand controller cable

A burned out circuit board inside

A burned out Azimuth motor

(Long shot) bad firmware in the hand controller. DO a Reset and reload the firmware.

Try to borrow another hand controller and buy a new cable. If these two do not fix it then it's a mechanical problem or a circuit board problem inside the scope.

Meade can repair this but you will need to send them the scope:

My telescope with autostar will slew up and down but not from side to side.

Sometimes this can be caused by:

A bad hand controller cable

A bad hand controller

Broken gears inside

Try to look inside the base for something broken and try a new cable which is cheap. If it's a broken gear, or a burned out circuit board you will need to return it to Meade for repair.

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.

8" Meade LX200 GPS: When I turn on the telescope the Autostar's red light come on but nothing else. After a few seconds I can use the direction motors with the hand controller only.

The first thing I would do is get another new hand controller cable. These can be ordered from Meade, or from a local dealer, or from

If a new cable does not help-- I would locate another Hand controller just to test if the controller has gone bad.

You can also try reinstalling the firmware into the hand controller, using the Meade version 5.9 updater software. You will need the proper computer cable between the computer and the hand controller to update the firmware.

Someone told me that the Meade Lightbridge could be equipped with Go-To Tecnology.T/F?

PUSH TO -- encoders can be mounted on to the base RA and DEC. After aligning on two known stars the hand controller will "point" to objects in the sky.

Mead lx6 model 2120. DRS will not get past the error message and when it does, the DEC and RA do not change when the tupe is moved in RA or DEC. Where can I get repairs done or mabe a schmatic for the...

This is a very old Meade SCT telescope. You can try contacting Meade customer service but I would doubt that they still have parts??

So, go to the Yahoo Groups LX200 forum and join and ask questions. Someone may have that model Meade SCT. Also there are people on the forum that can repair the circuits in the hand controller if something is blown.

Good luck.

Azimuth motor stalling missing the electronic home sensor

Check for binding in the gears; my 10" had aluminium chips in the fork base that jammed the gear. Cured by removing the RA manual adjust assembly - was useless anyway, as it could only be used with the RA unlocked. One setscrew in the fork base holds it in place,just loosen and pull up.
