looking to buy power supply for 10" LX200GPS

If I do reset first will that erase 1.7K and revert back to old software? I would assume it would but you know what happens when we astronomers assume something.......we wind up getting the big bang in our faces!

It will erase training values, site info, telescope info and the like but the firmware version you last loaded will remain. Meade moves some things when they release new firmware and sometimes memory locations get garbled with old data when installing new firmware, the update sometimes does not clear out these memory locations and your left with a confused autostar looking for info in one place and finding something else.
A reset will clear this up, on one ocassion I had to do 2 resets to bring the autostar back into reality

Well as far as I can tell everything is ok here. Scope work fine with the power suppy. If I find any issues later on I will post it. I just purchased 'STARRY NIGHT PRO 4.5'. At
CompUSA. They didnt have the PLUS but thats ok. Has anyone any thoughts on this program. I havent downloaded yet to pc and laptop hasnt been purchased yet. But looks like my 2003 list of items to buy is just about completed. But weather -you guessed it IS LOUSY WITH SNOW again! This year has pretty much been a washout. Only good news today is they got SADAM!

Did you do a reset? Or reload of the firmware? Or did it just start behaving?
Anyway glad to hear its working
