I have been autoguiding for a while with this camera, and the last two times I have been getting lines all over the screen and no stars. I changed cables, computer, and re loaded programs. I use PHD for guiding. so I tried to use the envisage program that the camera came with and I get the same issue.

Generaly the lines are from a bad usb port on the PC or the port isnt supplying enough power to fire up the imager.If neither of them fixes the issue the cameras may have died.Try it on a different PC with a powered USB2 hub.

Let me know what happens but im leaning hard to a bad usb port or a low powered port.
