Skywatcher HEQ5 Pro won't power up and blowing fuses

Recommended Posts

I see the market opening up for mother board repairs. Wish I new more than "its blown up, find a replacement part".

I have repaired a couple of ultrasonic cleaner boards but that was pretty obvious stuff and I did have circuit diagrams to help.

Bought a new motherboard for £95 on Ebay from a reputable seller, delivered quickly too. Replaced board and all is well again, phew! If this happens again I'll be looking into buying another brand mou

If you still have your old dead HEQ5 boards drop me a PM and I'll take them off your hands.  I've replaced the PIC micros on a few boards from Dobsonian scopes, and sorted a power issue with my own HEQ5 by replacing the two electrolytic caps, so would like to see if I could repair these boards as well.
