Problem with our LX200 gps

Recommended Posts


we have been having problem with our Society 12" LX200 gps we are having to problems.


Minor point - easy to fix: The display on on our handset no longer works it just stays blank. i think this is just going to be a case of buy a new one.


Major point - less easy to fix: The azimuth motor only turns in only one direction, it will move to the right (clockwise) but will not move to the left. we have tried with another handset thinking that may be the problem but no luck.

i don't know if this is a common problem of not but i would welcome any help you can give

My 10" handset packed up and had to be sent to Telescope house for repair. I now keep it indoors with some silica gel, and also have sprayed a little WD40 into the hbx socket on the main scope to keep out damp.
