There is a fix for the problem but it is not easy if you do not know how. What you need to do is repoint the dish on the roof or side of the house to get your signal back. To do this you moght want to call out your local dish provider or you can set an appointment with Directv at 1-800-DIRECTV Or you can go to the link below to learn how to point the dish.

    If you call direct Tv they will replace the recivers free of charge. Just tell them the problem you are having and they will send new ones out to you. You will just need to ship the broken ones back to them with there return lable. No charge. I have done this many times with my recivers I have 4 at my house.

My navman icn 520 wont find a gps signal and just keeps waiting for gps


I found that if you open out the receiver at the back and make sure it is touching the windscreen it works for me. If not I don't get a signal. It is worse in one of our cars because it has a heat reflective windscreen.

My Boston Acoustic Avidea 610 home theatre receiver popped last night and lost power! it has not been able to be powered up again!


Sounds like you blew a cap or some sold state device in the power supply section of receiver. Open her up and start looking and smelling - replace bad parts and cross fingers.

Icn 520


I have icn520 - bought an external aerial for it off e-bay now get full strength signal evertytime within seconds - well worth about a tenner rather than ditching the 520 which is was about to do!

It was the windscreen causing the problem for me

I have never seen this tv have a problem that turns the picture all green. What is signal source, (cable or satelite) and are you using component cables? Make sure your cables are good and that they are plugged in properly on both ends as a defec or loose component cable or a bad cable or satelit receiver can cause this problem.
