Unfortunately, you will probably have to send the unit in for sevicing, to restore this function. This type of scope is a highly precision device, and parts can wear, causing a loss of certain functions. I wouldn't recommend trying to take the unit apart, unless you're a super mechanical person. Even if you did, you'd have to identify the worn or failing part, and that would be a challenge without the tools and replacement parts they have at their repair facilities. Some cities have "sky clubs" and some of the people are avid skywatchers, and might know something about this particular problem, and may be of help, but that might your best alterntive to having it serviced right away. Often times, a switch or part can get slightly compromised by dust, or lint, and require a minor cleaning.
Here's Meade's Support Site, in case you don't have it:

Good luck, and hope this helps.

I have a Meade ETX-90/ec telescope, the verticle lock knob will not thighten. It appears to be stripped. how can I fix it? Where can I get a parts list? Thank you


The bolt is stripped away from the plastic knob-- TAKE THE vertical lock knob off and inspect the bolt head-- you can use a STRONG glue to fix it -- epoxy or something similar.

Etx90 geartrain broke


Only Meade has parts. Usually they want you to send the scope back to them for repairs. However you can contact their customer service department and ask if they will sell you just the part:

2 small lens fell out of my telescope how do I get them back in and where do they go ??


The Meade ETX90 does NOT have small lens! It has a large curved lens in the front. and a holder for the eyepiece in the back (top). There is also a camera port in the back, and a flip lever that sends the light either straight back to a camera, or UP to the eyepiece holder.

There is an INTERNAL secondary mirror mounted on the back of the front large lens. If this fell off INSIDE, you will need to remove the front lens to fix it. NOT an easy fix as the optical alignment can get messed up when you do this.

Here is the manual for an ETX90, you should read it completely.

Optical mirror detached - Meade ETX-90EC Telescope


Your best bet is to ship it back to Meade for repair. they may not look it but there are very close tolerances that have to be achieved and takes certain tools for alignment.
