Red dot finder doesn"t turn on

I had this problem too. You need to go into the "red dot finder" menu each time and just go into each option and confirm the blink intensity, etc. After I do this, it turns on.

How do you turn on the red dot finder-scope? - Bushnell Voyager 78-9945 Telescope

Make sure it has a new battery inside. Then there should be a "dial" or a switch that turns it on. The battery is probably dead. You can see the tiny red light -- light up-- if you look in the front of the finder.

I cannot get my finderscope red dot to lineup with my main scope ,its a SKP13065EQ2 .it will not lineup , i did send SKYWATCH a e-mail and that was almost 2 mths ago .i did line up the main scope like it said in the master book ,on page 11 (using the red dot finder) and i got as far as number 3 ,then it all went out the window,i could not get to number 4.i tryed to turn both the AZIMUTH and ALTITUDE to bring it in line and it will not do as it says in the book.i looked in the main to make sure it was in line with to object(it was) but the dot was not.i went to the FULL max on both and still no joy.i did find that the finder 'when you add the finder and screwin to lock it moves about 2-4 mm to the left.with this i worked out it was about 1and a half-2 inchs off.i was thinking of drilling another hole or mark it to see if i can get it to line up the right way.i do not want to spend £200 and keep looking from the back to line up the scope all the time .don't get me wrong i love the scope i got but its a pain in the *** when something will not go right. any help on this and how to fixit

Can you return the red dot finder? It's apparently broken.These can be purchased (not too very expensive)here:

Sometimes there can be a plastc tab to take out so as the battery isn't drained while it's in the factory, store etc. just pop the battery out and check.

Red dot finder scope

Simple-- you can also do this during the day on an object at least 100 yards away-- but at night; get the moon centered in the eyepiece and without moving the telescope center the red dot on the moon. This will get you almost aligned-- then put a bright star in the eyepiece and readjust the red dot to center the star.

I struggle to use the finder scope on the telescope, is it rubbish or is it me. i would like to change the rdf but it looks like its unique to this scope, nothing else looks like it, the mount does not look like any other mount on other rdf, i,m i stuck with this one or are they any other rdf i could use on this scope with the same mount. the telescope is fab but spend most of the time trying to aline rdf. celestron is such a big manufacture in telescopes and dont recon they would supply a scope with a hard to use finder. 2 red dots and 2 circles need to be lined up at an object, in day light fine but a nightmare against the dark sky, any tips if i'm stuck with it? cheers

No you can buy many different kinds of finder scopes and mounts-- look here:

My ETX-60 remote turns on but immediately turns back off, ive tried new batteries but it still turns right off, the red light on the telescope stays on but the remot doesnt, any fixes?

About the only thing you can do is buy another hand controller-- contact Meade for a new one.I am assuming the hand controller cable cannot be replaced check it anyway and see if you can get someone to replace the plastic plug that goes into the telescope on the cable. Sometime these go bad. Any "network" cable guy should be about to replace the end.
