ELMOTOR Error from KVH TracVision L2 startup - no satelllite found

KVH L2 is mounting on a motor coach - worked fine 2 weeks ago - now will not find satellites ... symptoms follow;

With RCA receiver with low speed data port ... initializes and then give me a "ELMOTOR ERROR" - never finds a satellite + Elevation motor is moving dish between both limits with no obvious problems ...

With DirecTV receiver ... will not accept a "Restore to Factory Defaults" action (Sat Select + Power on), Power on gives 1 bright flash then 4 short dim, then 1 bright, then 5 short dim flashes -- cycles thru this 3 times then goes to sleep - never finds a satellite ...

    I don't think the problem is with the receiver, but the dish which is mounted on the roof of our coach. The fact that I cannot "reset to factory defaults" when connected to the DirecTV receiver and receive the ELMOTOR ERROR when connected to the RCA receiver suggest to me that something is wrong with the KVH dish and not the receiver ... I get no signal with either receiver ...

    Do you have anyone that is familiar with the KVH L2 dish, and knows how to troubleshoot the dish if I hookup a laptop to the maintenance port?

SOURCE: X20G Fails To Power Up - Soloution Found

My monitor (SN517A1108SC1246) has same power on problem issue. This particular monitor was 'repaired' three times by Sceptre all within 4 months starting when 11 months old. The problem seems to occur when the monitor looses AC power completely so I've got mine on an UPS. The "reset" fix by MikeCharlie does work to get it back working. Key is timing, plugging in the power cord then monitor cable just after LED blinks. Tricky but can be done.

I do have another Sceptre X20 (SN505A1108SC2638) on same computer that although a year older, has not had any problems!

KVH M5 trouble

most likely is the coax from the dome to the receiver. Often this is intalled or terminated marginally and with age fails. Try crimping new ends on it.
