Hello, I am a newbie to telescopes and astronomy. With my first attempt to assemble a Celestron CGE Pro (inherited/used and out of warranty), I have encountered an alarming issue. The power on light indicator is blinking when using Celestron's AC adapter power supply and I do not appear to be getting power to the scope since the hand control is not turning on. I have troubleshooted by examining the external ports, which seem ok to my untrained eye. I have tested a second hand control, as well as all aux ports. I spoke to Celestron tech support, who suggested trying another AC adapter power supply, which also did not work. I realize the electronics pier could simply have a loose wire or something blown. I am not sure about opening it up yet (not sure I have the know-how, or if I could fix it if I did find the issue). I want to understand the full range of possibilities before opting to ship it off for repair.
Does anyone know if the CGE Pro mount has been programmed to have the blinking light indicate a specific type of issue? Or is it more likely faulty hardware? If anyone has other ideas or suggestions, you are welcome to share. I am not sure if I provided enough information, so ask for any clarification you may need. Thank you!
