My LX200GPS will now power up correctly. When I connect the AutoStar hand controller then power up the scope, one of 2 things will happen: the top row on the AS display turns to white boxes, almost like a progress bar) from left to right. When the line is full, everything just stops. The other thing that sometimes happens is the display just stays blank. The scope never moves. None of the buttons on the hand controller do anything.
Then at other times it just works like new.

With an intermittent problem, the first thing to do is to check all cables and connections.
