With the power off, check the connectors are properly plugged in at both ends. Like a network cable, the clip bit should spring out when properly located. Then power on. Within a couple of seconds there should be a long bleep and the display will show a startup message
( A U T O S T A R and Version number).

If that doesn't happen, and the batteries are fresh (and inserted the right way round), try connecting the curly cable the other way round (apparently that sometimes fixes it - personally I reckon it may just give another chance to plug it in correctly). If the doesn't work, you may have a faulty cable or a faulty Autostar or a faulty control panel. Take it back to the reseller to sort it out!

Light on telescope on powerup but nothing from autostar.

If Meade does not offer help, there is a 3rd party that does 'supercharging' of ETX models:

Meade "might" sell you the replacement part. But most likely they will want you to return the scope for repairs.

Dead on arrival!

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