I reset my receiver because of power failure. And I do not get my local channels. They come from 72.5
Is the receiver fried? or can the problem be fixed?
I have gone throught all the setup function. The local do not even show up on the guide. Help.

MISSING OVER THE AIR CHANNELS
The quality of reception and number of channels available depends on the antenna's placement and the customers location. Weather conditions may interfere with channel reception. The Channel Display receiver menu option may not be set correctly.
Check Over-the-Air Antenna ConfigurationCheck that the wiring between your DISH receiver and your over-the-air antenna is configured properly using Setup OTA
Reset ReceiverIf the issue is only on ONE receiver, unplug the DISH receiver for 10 seconds and plug back in.
Please note: It may take up to 5 minutes for the reset process to be completed.
Rescan Over-the-Air Channels to ReceiverAccess "Local Channels" select "Scan Locals" then "Save".
With the initial price of this being as high as it is, it is probably worth saving.
If you haven't checked all outputs, I would advise doing so since that would help localize a potential point of failure.
If NO outputs are still alive, it may be a failure of the main power supply of the unit; if this is the case, the repair may not be that costly.
If some outputs are still active, it could still be a power supply failure since it is probably not servicing all channels from a single supply.
Alternatively, it may be a failed output module with two channels in a shared housing.
