Hi! I will be more than glad to assist you in this concern. Lets check your cable connection first if all is connected hand tight on the back of the receiver, check the sat in connection. once your done, press the menu button on the remote, that is located on the upper left of the remote, once you have the main menu, press 6,1,1 on the remote on it will go to point dish, select check switch on the point dish screen, that is on the upper right of the screen, once you select check switch, it will go to the installation summary, you will see port1-119-ok-1k.2, port2-ok-1k.2 port3-con-1k.2, select test on the butom of the screen, it will run a test up to 3 or 4, it depends on the status of the lnbf, once its done, it will show the whole screen of installation summary, port1-119-ok-1k.2, port2-110-ok-1k.2, port3-129-ok-1k.2, once you see these, the problem is fix and you need to select done and it will go back to the point dish, select done, it will show you an option on the screen, then press 0, 3 times on the remote to exist all the way out, it will go to a pic or it will show attention 015, let the progress fiish and let the programming download finish as well. that will fix the problem, just incase still no 129, please unplug the power of the box from the power outlet for 1minute, plug in then you will see attention 015, press the menu button again from the remote, once you see main menu, press on the remote, 6, 1, 3, check on the field g, 119-green, 110-green, 129-green, if you got 129-green, that fix the problem, in case there is no 129, please call 1-800-333-3474, call the tech support of dish network, ask for a service call and inform them that what you did, sometimes they will ask some information, just answer the question, that is only to verify the steps that you did, If 129 sat orbital location is needed on your programming bcoz you have an hd program or your local package broadcast on 129 sat orbital location, they will setup a service call but if the sat 129 is not needed on your programming they will inform you that you dont have to worry about it. granting its needed, they will setup a service call. if you have the extended warranty plan, the service call is $29 but if you dont have, the fee is $49, the extended warranty plan is $5.99 every month. if you have any query pls feel free to get in touch..

Ikonvert TV converter box is reading lnb short what is this


'LNB' is low noise block. It is the receiver that is located in the middle of your satellite dish where the signal is collected from the dish.

You need to check the wiring at the rear of the receiver and all the way to the LNB itself.

Dish network receiver model 512 switch test says I am getting fewer sattelites than previously detected


were you getting all the Satellites before? could be Tree limbs in the way (very very common) could be the Dish had moved.. rotten boards, etc make sure the dish is mounted solid. could be the LNB gone bad. or coax has corrosion etc, many things can cause it. but usually a easy fix..

I lost all of my channels of my satellite TV. When I tune, I can see the STRENGTH bar to 85%, but QUALITY bar is non.


a likely cause is the LNB on the dish is dead or maybe just corroded f-connector, try replacing the LNB and fit a new f-connector, LNBs only last a few years they tend to rot from the sunlight/uv then water gets inside.

We have an old dish network dish and LNB with a new dishnetwork receiver. When we can get the signal up to 5, the screen goes blank and we cannot lock the signal in. Diagnostics state there is no...


Hi mfpayton with the install of the brand new receiver wealways want to make sure all connections are tight. And after all connectionsare hand tight we will need to run the Check Switch Test. It will provide thestrongest signal to your home and you will see the signal move up into the 65percent range. If after the Check Switch Test it still is a low signal we mayneed to check the connections from the Dish and LNB that is an issue we wouldneed to come out on. I will leave the link to show you how to do the CST.http://www.dishnetwork.com/SupportSection/complete-sig-loss

High def channels not always coming in


This problem does not have enough detail to know where to begin so I will offer a solution assuming you have Dish Network. Your dish, typically mounted on the roof of your house, has three LNBs that point to the sky. They all pick up a satellite. They are 110, 119 and 129. The latter is the HD LNB. If it is broken or tweaked and not pointing to the correctsatellite you need to get it reset. If it is loose and wobbles maybe that's why you sometimes don't get the HD channels consistently.
If you have Direct TV or a cable somebody else could help. Good luck.

Does the dish network 322 receiver require two lines from the satellite to the receiver?


It does require 2 lines form dish unless you have a switch installed such as a dp34 or you have Dish Pro plus LNB"S on your dish and you can use 1 feed to the reciver and use a separator to separate the signal into sat 1 and sat 2 (note: a standard splitter is NOT a separator) a separator is dish brand equipment.

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.

Dish 311 won't detect switches


dishnetwork is kind of tricky on the detect switch thing. sometimes if you are having troubles on just one receiver you have to run detect switch over and over again, sometimes as much as maybe 20 or 30 times. if it still doesn't work, hope you have a service plan so they will send you another unit to switch out. also try a different LNB ( low noise block downconverter) and check switch a few times. i know that sounds kind of stupid, but it works sometimes.
