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 ?

When we see the No Signal message moving around our TV screen it means our cable TV service is not available. If you have a satellite dish for your TV, the "No Signal" also probably means there is no service.
If yours is cable TV service, if you have not already done so, I suggest you pick up your phone and make a call to the number for your cable TV and ask to be connected to a technical service representative. You will probably need to have your cable account number and other ID handy when you make the call.
If yours is satellite dish service, again, call the TV service number. If you reside where there have been strong storm winds, the reception dish may have been blown out of alignment and it will need to be set back in the proper direction for signal pick up.
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.
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)
Hi CharlieO my name is Mike of DISH Network and I was reading over your post and seenwhere your 110 satellite is not locking in or on your install summary screen. Iwould be more than happy to help with this issue and to research further I willneed to look at the account to look what satellites they have setup on youraccount. I will need your account number or your phone number; I will leave mye-mail so you can contact me directly. Michael.firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
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.
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.
