Re: Skew not holding
One way is to go out to the dish and physically turn the feed assembly 90 degrees one way or the other. you could be having a problem with the polarotor motor. they are inexpensive now(less than 20 dollars) and really easy to replace. it is the little box on the feed, has three wires coded white, black (or blue) and red.

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)
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.
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.email@example.com
Mount the dish on a pole or house using a mast perfectly plumb. Ensure it will give you an unobstructed view of the sky based on the information that should have come with the dish regarding your zip code for skew, elevation and azimuth settings. You will now need to run one line from the LNB on the end of the skew arm to your 622. Remember to use a seperater inside or you will need to run another line into the back of the receiver. Run a hardwire off back of the receiver's home distribution port to . Connect a line from 3-4 on back of the receiver to your TV 1. ....More to come if needed drop me another line.
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.
we live in the midwest and our manual stated we should use linear west setting. well we changed that setting to linear east and the skews are now correct. we actually live in Illinois. thanks for your reply
have a nice day
What channels on what satellite? You should always start with sat G1 channel 3 and rehit. This will map in all the channels the receiver is authorized to get from Motorola.Options 6 5 and the trip counter should go up by 5 and show ~ 4600 channels After that you need to make sure you are good on the arc. Start with G-1 5 (analog) then go east about 20 counts to C3 channel 7 On both G1-5 and C3-7 you may need to adjust the skew to get the picture. The same is true for digital channels like those on G3C like TNT, CNN, SPIKE etc. Once you know you are on the satellite then adjust the skew.
does the creen say searching for channel? if so you might have to update the maps...go to G! 3 and leave there for about 15 to 20 minutes...make sure you got a dc light....if no you have a tuning issue...play with the skew...
Thank you for the info.
Here is what you can try:
Try to get the Echo 8.10(110W) first by connecting the LNB on your left if you are behind the dish. On the first transponder from 110W you need to get anything better than 90% quality.
After this is done you may have to play with the skew until you get 119W. On 119W the first transponder frequency is 12239Mhz.
The skew will depend on where you live.
Check here for more info on the parameters to get your dish align.
BTW, What kind of receiver do you have?
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.
