Elevation motor stopped working....

My lx90 scope was working fine until the other night and the elevation motor stopped...the hand box indicated that the motor was not working. I reset the system, and the elevation motor worked erratically, on, off, on, off....so I reset it again, and now no elevation motor function at all. The rotational motor (azimuth?) works ok... all speeds ok, but the altitude motor won't function. I would like to get a hold of a break-away parts diagram and any help to get this motor running again. [email protected]

I have a Meade LX-90 8 inch telescope that gets a motor fault failure in declination. I have done all the usual attempts to fix it Ex. train drive which geberates error, swap out autostar, autostar cable, reseat cables on the dec motor board etc. On approx 11/2010 I posted this same question to FixYa and they gave me the name of a person who I beleive lived in Haverhill Mass who I contacted thru the Yahoo LX-90 user group and was planning on bringing my scope to him for possible repair. As luck would have it I had a harddrive failure and lost all infomation about this person (should have put the info on paper) Yup I know about backups, had external HD backup which did not work. Is it possible that you would still have this persons name so I could contact him again. Thank You In Advance John Maher Hudson Ma [email protected]


Well it could be several people:Ron Sampson -- available on the Yahoo LX90 group post a message for him- he can repair any of the boards inside the scope and also the hand controller.or The Astronomy Shoppe- http://www.astronomy-shoppe.com/

Meade lx-90 dec printed circuit board bad. where


Since you already disassembled the scope-- you can send the board to Ron Sampson and he should be able to repair it. He fixes main boards and hand controllers (including the screen and keyboard on the hand controller!)If you post a message on the Yahoo LX90 group looking for Ron Sampson he will answer you. You can then email or phone him for instruction on how to send him the board.ARE YOU SURE it's the board? It could be a bad keyboard or a bad cable on the hand controller. You should get another hand controller and cable and test it before you send it off. Can you borrow a hand controller and cable from anyone.... or from a local scope retailer?

Problem with lx200gps meade telescope


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

Meade LX90 GPS - When the telescope slews to a new location (tour or manual slew), the telescope then slews up a few degrees. I have to manually slew the scope down several degrees and hope I've guessed the correct amount the telescope will move when I'm done. It also moves up even when I move the scope left or right!


Calibrate motors and then TRAIN the drives-- this sets the gear backlash.You should Calibrate motors every time you take it outside and Train drives at least once every year. The symptom you describe is called "rubberbanding".Train the drives.
