Given that your temporary fix would indicate that there may be a connection problem with the battery. It could just be some oxidation or perhaps a problem with the board.
That gets us back to the 'Remove the panel' scenario we talked about before or send it to Celestron repair. How much longer is your warranty good for? The board is very pricey for the CGEM. $342.00

Warranty period is until mid-May. I think the problem may actually be the battery holder...the battery is not as snug as it should be, compared to my other CGEM. I can stick my finger in there and slightly jiggle the battery.
To be honest, I am not inclined to send the mount back to Celestron, but if there is a board issue...wow those are pricey!
