A school I am helping has a Meade LX600-ACF telescope and the handset is having issues. The text screen at times blinks only half of the screen and the other half the text is stable. The handset is AutoStar II and I have the same handset for my LX200GPS. I have been into my Meade Handsets, AutoStar and AutoStar II, to fix the button issues but never had a screen issue.
I cannot find anything on the internet regarding the handset’s half blinking screen. Most times on start up it does not blink but over time it does start. I have used my Meade AC/DC adapter to run the scope thinking the batteries were maybe the issue. However, that did not solve the issue and I did take out the batteries of the scope. I suggested to the school to get the adapter and not use batteries.
Does anyone have any idea on why half the text screen blinks at times? Can it be fixed other than buying another handset?
Thank you for any responses.
