If the failed capacitor was in the “brick” handcontroller it usually is a fatal consequence.

I was recommended to replace ALL the capacitors on my LX200 scopes, before they failed.......

I have changed one and now the power is back on, but no controls, so change them all then??

Did the one that failed damage the ribbon cable behind it?

when you say power is back on....what do you see on the handcontroller?

If the handcontroller is actually functioning......then I’d suggest replacing all the capacitors.

Thanks Will check the ribbon cable and change the all the capacitors. The display on the handset reads Mead and the power light is now on the main telescope.
