"Motor Unit Fault"
Posted 20 June 2009 - 08:17 PM
I checked and everything is balanced, mounted correctly, etc. All I basically did was mount the motors, check to make sure the gears worked, move the mount around a bit with the hand controller and then shut it off. I then mounted the scope, got ready to observe/test it out and turned it on. That's when I got that message.
Any help or suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Second, something's too tight and the motor's stalling.
3rd, low power?
crud on the encoder? (grasping at straws now)...

Those items should be in the utilities section of the menus..

Meade "MUF" is a catch-all error message. Since you did the GOTO adaptation, the error reasons can be many. Few things I would check first are: proper cabling, wiring incorrectly, encoder light shield, and proper power source.
