Loss of satellite positioning after power off at night
Have reprogrammed all sats 4 times in 4 days works fine all day moving from top of arc to bottom after turning off at night cannot get a sat in the am , I wrote down the counter positions and it returns to the same # but this can be up to 94 counts off the satellite when i reprogram any ideas

Hi I could be the arm is slightly loose and is sliding a bit each time you use it. Tighten everything. Also the reed switch might be breaking down. It's easy to replace as it's the only component on the sensor wires. Good luck

If your philips tv keeps losing it's stations when you switch it off, this my be a solution -----my 42" tv would need to be retuned every time I wanted to watch it this fault just started over night it was all working fine then sat down to watch tv and had to retune tv from scratch I could then watch telly all night fine change channels no probs all great switch it off next day retune and so it went on if you have this problem switch telly on then hold in menu button on tv until screen goes black (this reboots software) then retune tv as normal it will ask if you want a full retune (yes) when this is complete digital and analogue your tv should now remember channels when switched off and work as it used to ----( Hope this helps you if you have had this problem it worked for me ). Good Luck
I apologize for any frustration with the recordings being deleted. Signal loss doesn't affect the recordings already on the hard drive, however if it's deleting every day it sounds like the hard drive is about to fail.
We can definitely send you a replacement receiver. I would also recommend using an External Hard Drive to backup and store recordings to avoid losing them in the future. If you would like me to look into a replacement, you can shoot me an email at email@example.com.
Hello! My name is Becki Barned, and I am from Dish Network customer service. The problem that you are having is simple to fix. Although your remote works for the volume, and power, it is not working for the satellite. It does need to be reprogrammed. Just take it to tv1. With your tv1 remote, press the menu button twice. Then with the tv2 non-working remote, hold down the SAT button until all the mode lights light up at the top, then release. Then press the #9 on the remote keypad, then the pound (#) button, then record (above the number 3 on the keypad) 3 times. This should resolve your issue!!! If not, you can blog back, or find us on Twitter!!!!
Hello! Dan Busa with Dish Netywork here intermittent signal loss like that is usually caused by some sort of glitch a hard reset ( unplugging it for ten seconds ) will usually resolve this. If your signal strength is at or above 80 that should be fine, but keep in mind you need good signal strength on both the 119 and 110 satellites ideally you should be at 70 .
Hi, Mary with Dish network Customer Service. The issue you are experiencing is a complete satellite signal loss message. If you are experiencingsevere weather right now it is best to wait till it passes. Then you can reset the receiver box by unplugging it for 10 seconds from the power and then allow it to reboot. Also check all the connections in the room with the receiver box from the wall up to the receiver itself. If it does not get off 0 progress of 5, you will need to call Dish network and will probably need a Service Technician Visit scheduled.
I have run into this problem a couple of times, once a loose connection at the LNB, other times it has been due to moisture build up (dew) in the loose connections, check all connections from the LNB through the tuner, and any other devices involved (a line map maybe?) that will most likely resolve the problem.
The HD feed comes in on 61.5 for a majority of stations most often locals come off 119 or 110. The USA hd comes off of 61.5 transponder 19.If you press menu 611 on your dish remote and manuever the highlight to the satellite and go to 61.5 and then change the transponder to 19 you will probably have a poor signal from 0 -39. Typically this can be resolved by having the dish re-peaked but sometimes foilage may be the cause. Thanks for using Fix Ya.
Signal Fade And Loss ~ Important, especially during winter!
Keep in mind that satellite broadcasts occur directly from fixed satellites in space to users. UPLINKS TO that satellite can happen from almost anywhere in the world! This includes broadcasts from remote studios, satellite vans and trucks.
Even signals from the main providing studios are susceptible to weather conditons even tho they have huge, high-gain transmitting dishes!
Weather is a major factor for both the uplinks and downlinks! Storm clouds can block the signals anywhere in the signal path(s). Rain clouds do too ~ even if it's not raining yet. Water-laden clouds make some of the BEST signal attenuators.
So one may have a gorgeous day in San Diego (let's say), but storms back east could trash satellite reception at his location and potentially everywhere else!
As you know, weather conditions all over the US are changing constantly with many severe storms occurring this past week and during any winter. In fact this week there was total signal loss on several satellites and I suspect storms back east were a big factor.
So it could have just been issues of timing for you. The UPLINK had intermittent problems with signal paths semi-crippled by weather... YOUR weather was CLEAR, but your reception was far from problem free ~ only because of weather problems elsewhere.
If you see intermittent satellite reception do check out the weather... especially back east.
I assume this is an outdoor satellite dish system, like a c-band system? It sounds like the motor drive outside has a stripped gear on the main shaft. The motor is probably running and the sensor wheel is turning (making the unit in the house think the dish is moving) but the screw shaft is not turning.
