mounts are probably too high.....had the same prob on a .22 rifle with high mounts for open site shooting also. i bought a lower mount and zeroed it in with no prob

Most probably, flat batteries. Autostars go berserk when batteries are even a little low. Try it with a mains power adaptor instead.
Otherwise, maybe its a dodgy curly cable, broken Autostar, broken control panel or Autostar firmware needs reloaded

Since you already disassembled the scope-- you can send the board to Ron Sampson and he should be able to repair it. He fixes main boards and hand controllers (including the screen and keyboard on the hand controller!)
If you post a message on the Yahoo LX90 group looking for Ron Sampson he will answer you. You can then email or phone him for instruction on how to send him the board.
ARE YOU SURE it's the board? It could be a bad keyboard or a bad cable on the hand controller. You should get another hand controller and cable and test it before you send it off. Can you borrow a hand controller and cable from anyone.... or from a local scope retailer?

You are missing a screw on cap for the rear port, and you need to buy several 1.25 inch eyepieces.
Scopestuff.com sells the rear port cap also you may be able to get one directly from Meade- http://www.meade.com/support/index.html
Several internet retailers sell 1.25 inch eyepieces.
Here is one:
