This week at Gadget Rehab the technicians have been tackling a unique repair on an MEADE LX200 Telescope. The customer brought it to us as it was not powering on which is apparantly quite a common issue with these telescopes. Having already been to a few other repair shops and also attempting a repair himself. Gadget Rehab was his last stop.
After diagnostics of the device we found that a couple of the Tantalum Capacitors had been faulty as well as the time delay fuze. After replacing these compoenets Paul (the technician working on the device) spent the morning testing the device. The customer was very happy with the repair and is looking forward to going back watching the stars and close by planets.
New this device would cost £19,500 so would have been a shame to have given up on it or thrown it away. In a society where there is a throw it away attitude here at Gadget Rehab we try our best to repair all gadgets so if you have an random repair such as the telescope or otherwise please contact us and we will try our best to help.
