Can't get the 110 satellite to lock even though I have a 71 on

Using a dp1000 satellite a friend gave me. Tested switch and satellite out at home and picked up 110, 119 118 and 129. At camp can only get the 119 and 129 even though 110 has a strong signal it won't lock. Need 110 for locals

SOURCE: have dish receiver 510, channels i need are on

Donna,
I am sorry to hear of your troubles. I am assuming you have another receiver in the house that is an HD receiver as the 510 is not and it would not make any sense for you to have the 129 orbital without it. If you go to the other receiver and are able to get transponder 21 on the 129 bird then the issue lies in either the cabling, connectors, barrels and or wall plate, or the 510 itself. Assuming you were good to go with the hi def receiver move it to the 510 location and see if you are able to still p/u the 21 transponder. If so, the 510 is bad and needs to be replaced. If not the problem lies in the aforementioned areas. if yoou are unable to get the 21 transponder on the hi def receiver also then more than likely the dish needs to be repeaked. If I can be of more assistance let me know. Thanks for using Fix Ya.

SOURCE: My satellite is on 129 and 119 and I want 119 and

How many coax cables are you using from your dish, 1 or 2? Do you have a switch between the dish and receivers? I am assuming your have a 1000.2 dish since you say you have the 129, 119, 110. On the LNB you have 4 coax ports. Facing the LNB, the port on the far left is for 119, the next is 110, then 129, and that last on the far right is for an additional dish. If you want to get 119 and 110, just use the 2 ports on the left. Once connected, run your check switch. I hope this helps.

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.

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 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.

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.
