I can`t help you other than to say I had the same experience on my Starfinder 8. I went through 4 handboxs and three computers before I boxed the whole mess up and reurned it for a refund. I never could do a two-star alingment. I could do a one-star alingment but I had to change the El sign depending if the star was east or west of the meridian. Also could not get "FIND" to work. When I SYNC`d on a star it did not seem to improve the accuracy of locating the other targets.
