Nexstar equatorial alignment (Repost)

Has anyone been able to get the Nexstar 4(actually I have a Tasco GuideStar) computer to align on the equatorial wedge/tripod? I tried to follow the directions in the Tasco instruction manual (point north, turn down 90* and enter your longitude and +89* latitude) which call for you to fool the computer into thinking its on the north pole. It hasn't worked. What does?
