Blown fuses in meade telescope

Hi, thanks for the reply. I don't know if what you said could be the problem.If I disconnect the ribbon from the mother board to the front panel and apply power the fuse does not blow .Seems to indicate something past the front panel? I'm just guessing. Any Ideas? Thanks

No, you burned out some of the circuits on the internal power board. Meade can repair the scope but you must send it to them.

That's why I always use a 12 volt battery pack and NEVER use the 110volt adapter

A fellow by the name of Ron Sampson can repair hand controllers and main boards on Meade telescopes. He does very good work. All you need to send him are the board(s).

You can contact him by posting a message on the Yahoo LX90 or LX200 group forums.

Good luck-- by the way he repaired the hand controller for our astronomy clubs 10 inch Meade LX200, at a very reasonable cost.
