Good Morning Keith,
We manufacture custom cable assemblies and in order to provide you with a quotation for this item, we would need written authorization from Meade Instruments. We do not stock any of these assemblies as they are made-to-order.
If Meade won't reply to an online contact form inquiry then what chance do I have with a written authorization. Approaching it another way I replied to Becky asking if he would pass on my inquiry to her contact at Meade. That was on the 12th August. Still no reply from Meade.
Can anyone please help me get some feedback from Meade please??

I don't know anything about your RCX-400, being mostly a small scope person. I cannot help you with your particular technical problem. But, I can pass on a message to someone I know and see if we can get you the release you need.
By the way, welcome to the forum!

An extremely kind sole managed to buy a genuine Meade DB 25pin cable on his way through Japan of all places. Alas, the cable provide not improvement to the problems. We now have the scope unmounted and apart inside.
We found a terminal off on one of the focus motors which has solved the focusing problem.
Our focus now is on why the GPS doesn't provide accurate details and why the scope won't level itself during setup.
There appears to be a common component to both problems; a small PCB in the fork housing which receives the cable links directly for the GPS Module and Leveling Unit (ball bearing).
Has anyone on the planet ever had to replace one of these PCB's to overcome the same problem?
Has anyone in the Universe ever had this issue before?
Your assistance and feedback is greatly appreciated.

I am trying to chase something down. Did you actually send an email inquiry to Meade? If so, what email address did you send it to?
Was it an email address in literature you had that came with the scope?
