'What's wrong with satellite dish 110?

119 99% locks in. 110 locks in only if the wind is less than 25 mph; there are no thunderstorms; the temperature is less than 85 degrees. This therefore means it will receive only 50 to 75% of the time and rarely makes it through a viewing session without having to re-acquire the signal. No obstructions, azimuth is South West. Obtained another Dish for Internet this year... 99% connect. Both dishes were installed by DISH tech.

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.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Dish Network - Dish 500 Satellite 110 is not being recognized

You will need a DP or Legacy twin or quad, or DPP twin without using an external switch. If you use Legacy Duals, or DP Duals you will need a switch. USUALLY a SW21 is used to combine the signals but you may have a different one in use if at all.

The primary thing to remember when using a switch is that you must use the same type of LNB as switch e.g. Legacy switches with Legacy LNB's and Dish Pro switches with Dish Pro LNB's.

Check your LNB type. Legacy LNB's have only a Dish Network Logo on them, Dish Pro has DP on them and DPP have DP PLUS on them.

One of three things could be the cause:

1. Line of site. Must be clear of all obstructions to ensure adequate signal.

2. You have a faulty switch, or conflicting LNB and switch, or no switch at all.

3 you may have a bad port on the LNB.

As a fail safe check that your mount is level and plumb. You also may have the dish pointed directly at 119. Check the Skew and elevation settings as well. If LOS IS THE ISSUE YOU MAY NEED TO RELOCATE THE DISH OR REMOVE THE OBSTRUCTION.

In some extreme cases microwave towers and High Voltage lines also pose a problem but doubt this is the case for you.

SOURCE: Same problems. Fan is whirling. Light flashes. No Video Signal.

The 622's are good receivers it is just that on occasion we get a shipment that has been mishandled. This causes the issues however a 722k is a good choice. Thanks for using Fixya.

Machine fails to operate

Ooh, do not turn the handwheel in reverse...

First, make sure your machine has not been set to wind a bobbin. When that is the case, the needle is immobilized during bobbin winding so that you do not accidentally sew over your hand or something else. (Consult page 18 of the owner's manual.)

The machine is less than a month old. If there is something seriously wrong, contact the manufacturer. I should still be under warranty.

My 2007 mitsubishi raider is flashing a yellow 4 low sign

If you are driving on hard surface in 4 WD then you will be suffering drive line torque wind up . This will activate a sensor to advise you to switch to 2 WD and so save on wear in the drive train. The jerking is from the tyres trying to slip and when the load on a tyre is less it will slip to equalise the torque .WD is meant only for loose surfaces / snow / ice

Sat finder detects signal on 61.5 Sat but receiver does not display or lock.

Hi, Mary with Dish Network Customer Service. The 61.5 Satellite carries mostly High Definition programming. If your Satellite Dish is an older model, it is not equipped to bring that Satellite in. It is the part on the Dish called the LNBF (the eyes) that will pick up the satellites. Your receiver is a Standard Definition, you should be reading the 119 & 100 Satellites. I hope this helped but if you have additional questions, please let me know.

No Picture when it does open it breaks up but now says "no satelite signal is being received" I have tried refreshing but to no avail. Could it be the weather or is it your service? Either way it...

I presume you are using satellite service. If your TV displays that message - this means that message is generated by your satellite box and TV is working just fine.
Most likely you have poor dish pointing or bad connection between dish and satellite box. Weather would be at the end of the list and it would not stay bad because of weather, it would go back to good picture/sound after thunderstorm is over.
Have satellite provider schedule an appointment and check installation. They charge you monthly fee for service and they have to provide it all way to your TV input jack. If installation was poor or cables are bad - it is not your responsibility but theirs.

When I accelerate the rpms reve up to the red zone but my yukon only goes to 25 mph. what is wrong?

Maybe the torque converter is not locking up right. Or the clutches in transmission are worn, or the transmission is not shifting up to higher gears.

Can't get Dish500 satellite system set-up

If you tripod or mount is perfectly plumb and you have the correct information for the settings at your current location then you may have a faulty piece of hardware ensure all connections are tight and that all bolts on the dish are tight. Once you get 119 try gently pulling on the top of the dish and see if that increases the signal stregth and gets you 110 since it is at a higher elevation than 119. let me know if this helps.
Thanks for using Fix Ya.
