Customer Question
I have the SynScan...

I have the SynScan V4 Hand controller. The circuit board is Celestron NXW215. Need to replace the C3 and C55 capacitors. Both are 106C 88ACO 62LL4. Where can I purchase these capacitors to replace.

Technician's Assistant: What's the make/model of your device? How old is it?

4 years old. It's the Hand Controller for the Orion 14g GoTo Dobsonian. When you open the hand controller the circuit board is identified as being the Celestron NXW215 circuit board.

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on? What troubleshooting have you tried?

Controller stopped functioning. I inadvertently attached a battery with the polarity reversed. Found reference on internet that doing so would fry the C55 and likely C3, which I could clearly see they were both fried.
