I was wondering if anyone has any ideas about the problem I’m having with my Autostar II. I was in the middle of an upgrade and the scope was turned off before it could complete the download. I know I know.. this shouldn’t have happened but to make a long story short it just did.

Is there a hidden command or procedure that I need to allow me to start the download over or am I hosed and looking at sending the parts to Meade?

Upon power up the display comes up with “LX200 GPS © 2001 MEADE” none of the buttons work or have any effect. I have tried to communicate with Autostar Suite as well as HyperTerminal. I’m pretty confident that the comms setup is good as it was working before the power outage.

Thanks in advance for any help
