Hello, I've been searching the net high and low but not managing.
I have a Meade DS-2114 telescope. I have read to manual back to front but haven't gotten anywhere.
When attempting to move the telescope with the autostar in the horizontal direction (either left or right) the motors engage but after give or take 5 seconds they stop and on the screen a message appears saying a motor unit fault has occurred. The vertical motor has no issues and always moves all the way when engaging it.
I have seen some threads where they recommend (if you are comfortable with it) to open up the base and clean off any grease which may be on the encoder. So I opened it up carefully and saw the encoder (I think) and wiped it with a soft cloth, not that there was any residue on it. I assembled it all again, did a reset but the same happened. I have also done a motor calibration from the setup menu.
