woodblock Posted April 16, 2022 Share Posted April 16, 2022 I've suddenly started getting comms errors between EQMOD and my HEQ5 mount. My laptop is connected directly to the handset port on the mount and it has an EQDIR adaptor at the laptop end where it plugs into the USB port. The comms errors come up on the EQMOD error log - COMMERR.ER=9044459 COMMERR.ED=1677216 COMMERR.MSR=144 COMmERR.MSD=128 The second pair of numbers are always the same, the first pair have different values sometimes. I can control the mount through the EQMOD control thing so it kind of works but it does odd things. I noticed the problem originally when the RA and DEC displayed on the EQMOD thing would suddenly flick to a different value for a second and the return to the correct value. Both RA an DEC are affected. I've checked the mount power supply and it's fine. I did have problems some time ago running it off a 12v supply. It's now on a 13.5v supply and has been working fine for several years. I've disconnected all other USB items from my laptop so only the mount is connected. Any help would be appreciated.
