Question about Meade LX200GPS Telescope
I am facing a problem with my lx200 14inch meade telescope. While doing the alignment the telescope is detecting the home position and true north. but after that it is not doing the mount tilt and gps fixing. the telescope rotates till the motor stops.....what is fault with the telescope ....please give a suggestion.
It might be a voltage or electrical current problem. Make sure your DC power supply is between 12 and 14 volts. Make sure all electrical connections are tight. Where the power cord plugs into the connection panel, make sure the center pin on the panel fits tightly into the plug. It is a Radio Shack type "N" plug. If tou still have a problem, remove the bottom plate from the scope base and make sure all the connectors are properly seated on the circuit board. Check the connector on the end where the black and red wires are. That is a main power connector and if it is too loose it will not conduct enough current. There can be enough voltage drop that the drive motors won't operate, or they will and the scope will slew uncontrollaby. Be careful handling the wires so that you don't damage them. Good luck, Dave
