I went to use my LS8 tonight and nothing happened. I turned on the power switch and the power light flashed several times before remaining on. The Autostar 3 controller lights up, but displayed no message. Is this a firmware issue? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Denny,

For clarity, I have a memory card that stays with my scope.  It is not uncommon to reload software from time to time.  Let’s hope it is a memory issue and not a dead board.

DennyD, hello.
Do you remember how did you get your LS8 to work again?

My LS8 is stuck past its home/park position and when I turn it on, nothing happens, red light on the switch blings a few times and then it stays solid red, no bios or sounds, also the hand controller light up but no texts.
