LX200 No ALT control
Posted 11 October 2013 - 12:43 PM
My question is ... do any of these caps have anything to do with the problem? The handbox lights up fine, and does not appear to have any other problems besides the ALT disfunction. could the changing of the caps altered something else, like on the ALT motorboard? is there some way to test the ALT motor, like swapping it out with the AZ motor?
I am looking for any suggestions here, mostly from someone that has LX200 component level experience like George.
I sure hate that I tried to better a functioning scope and ended up like this.
Two other things... I tried changing the handbox cord and got the same result, and while pressing the ALT buttons the current meter shows no rise in current like the AZ does when working.

Since it had been a few months, is it possible that you forgot to install the dec motor cable?

I have done this before, but was not doing anything but setting up. I think I wanna delete this post for embarrassment. but , I won't. What a relief. Thanks John. I was scared I had done something bad to that irreplaceable ribbon cable. I am Proud for people like you that got some common sense.
Thanks again, Theo
