Autostar 497 freezes
My Autostar 497, with its original version 26 I.c (?--that's what it looks like on the smudged label) was working very slowly even indoors (I had to hold keys down for over 1 sec, and arrows often didn't work). Then, when out observing at about 28 degrees F last night, having just coaxed it into doing a successful alignment of my ETX 125AT, it froze. When I turn it off and on again, the display reads "(c)02 Meade [26E]", then "initialize", it freezes every time on the J of "22 Jan 2008". None of the buttons does anything. The batteries are fresh.Can I somehow reset the unit?
