Make sure all of your cables are connected right.
Also make sure the RA clutch is tight.
does the ra moter make any noise when you slew???
If it makes noise or you can hear it spin it sounds like the cclutch isnt tight.
If you have to call Meade at their 800 number for assistance.
If you have to return it for repairs they can issue a RGA number.

Jim sorry to hear about that.
Every now and then a scope bets bumped in shipping or something goes wrong in shipping.
I know Meade will help you in a fix for this.
Meade is a great company to deal with.
I hope you get things fixed soon.
