I came across a 10" LX200 Classic at a local estate auction for a widow who was downsizing after her husband's death. Bought it and attached my power supply to it... no go, dead. Began to take it apart and that's when I noticed the problem. The basement where the couple was living was probably leaky and the scope was sitting on the floor - long story short, there was some water damage at the base of the mount around the main board.

Decided to completely tear it down to see what worked and what didn't. I'm likely keeping the OTA, but I am going to part out the mount, electronics, and other things.

Here's what I got along with asking prices:

SOLD Mother board ($60): this shows the most damage - there's rust around some of the solder points and I suspect the main reason the unit doesn't power up is because of faulty electrical components from the water damage. Comes with heat sink.
Power panel ($60): after detaching the ribbon from the main board, the front panel shows power, but I can't do much beyond that - it needs a new 2A, 250V fuse (the dead fuse is included for reference) and likely a new battery.
SOLD Ribbon ($5): connects power panel to main board.
RA motor assembly ($80): motor tested and works - I'm assuming the electronics work as well, though I can't say for sure.
SOLD Dec motor assembly ($100): motor tested and works - I'm assuming the electronics work as well, though I can't say for sure.
SOLD Meade 25' extension cord ($15): tested and works, but needs a new 1.5A, 250V fuse (the dead fuse is included for reference).
SOLD Instruction manual ($10): in great condition
10" dew shield ($75): in great condition
Dec cable ($10): tested and works
Base and fork arms: ($50): keep in mind this is completely stripped of motors and electronics - the only thing left in them are the gears, but those can be removed if someone wants only them.

I'm willing and open to take offers and will bundle things together to save on shipping. Feel free to ask any questions, and I will try to answer to the best of my ability. I will only ship to CONUS with the buyer paying shipping. Also, I will only accept Paypal with the buyer paying the 3% fee.
