I assume you are talking about the hand paddle? If so, I had a similar problem a number of years ago. The cable connection into the handpaddle was not very good and if I handled the hand paddle too roughly, such as pulling on it and at a right angle to the cable, the connection would go and I would have to re-align the telescope again to use the goto capabilities. I have a cable and handpaddle you could borrow, but I live up here in Dewey. Its been a number of years, but I think I had another cable for it and replaced the old one with it. Again, assuming by the hand controller you mean the hand paddle. Stan DAVID SHAFER wrote: >I have a Meade LXD75 with a 497 contoller that has seemingly lost its mind.
