Satellite won't pick up a signal

I moved my satellite dish and now I can't pick up a signal...my TV says I need to be at 226 degrees azimuth and the other settings appear to be the same as I had when installed (elevation/tilt) but I still am not getting a signal ? Anything you can advise ?

I have bought the old decoder and need to set up the satellite dish. I had signal for approx one minute, then lost it. What is the angles in azimuth and height to set up the dish?


The angle and azimuth depend on the position of the satellite. Contact any technician. Gopakumar Gopalan Google
It is not easy to predict the exact angle and azimuth. You should have a signal meter to proceed.

Looking for flin flon area azimuth elevation skew angles my dish got moved by a storm and i can't get the signal


You can find the coordinates for Shaw here:

Bell Express View will be different--just Google it.

Mast must be vertical. Elevation is most critical, then azimuth, (direction) then last is skew.
If only the az has been affected (likely if it was just the wind) then turning the dish in very slow increments should eventually find the satellite(s)

Have Direct TV using a Sony Digital Satellite receiver model #SAT B2-2 /Sony Satellite dish purchased in 7/97. I get local channels thru Direct TV. Recently, local channels will show on the Direct TV guide...


Your dish is out of alignment. The local channel satellite doesn't have as strong of a signal, so a slight misalignment will cause problems.

It could also be an F-connector needs to be replaced at the dish or multiswitch (if you have one). Sometimes moisture builds up inside the connector and corrodes the copper stinger inside.

If you go into your satellite signal strength menu and find the local channel satellite, you're sure to see either a weak signal or an intermittent one.

One more thing, if a tree has grown in the line of sight between the dish and the satellite, this will cause signal problems too. In this case, you either have to trim the tree or move the dish.

Hope this helps!

P.S.
The customer service reps at DirecTV usually idiots reading from a script with no real field experience.

SATELLITE DISH


Sure you can, if you have Dish Network go to the receiver and turn the TV and receiver on. Then press menu-6-1-1. This takes you to the point dish screen. You will come out with better results using a compass to find the azimuth the dish should be pointed toward and bore sighting the dish by pointing it in that direction. You then will need to move the dish in very minute increments pausing for 15 to 20 seconds after each move to ensure the satellite signal can be found. If you have ran a check switch prior to this and have lost all satellites you more than likely will not receive a signal until you run another check switch and have found the signal of at least one of the orbitals. If this proves to be to tedious and many times it will you can usually find an inexpensive signal pointing device at a store like Radio Shack. Hope this is some assistance to you. Let me know if I can be of additional assistance and thank you for using Fix Ya.

Dish Network - Dish 500 Satellite 110 is not being recognized


chances are that you have only lined up the dish to pick up one satellite. there are several satellites up there for dish and its easy to miss the ones that you need. try to line up the dish keeping this in mind. if that doesn't work, write back.

Hi. I need help finding 119!


I looks like you are picking 110W with the LNB on your left if you are facing the dish.
Try to get 119W first if you connect the cable to the 119 LNB, once you find 119W that way, you will also have 110W.
Good Luck.

Dish Network - Dish 500 Satellite 110 is not being recognized


Lonnie, You have a simple problem,the 119 satellite is lower in the sky than the 119 if you make sure the pole you are mounted on is straight and plum ,then simply raise the dish a few elevation degrees and turn the dish to the left.Your dish is aimed low and to the right.
