Hi,

 

 

 

Recently we got our batch re-roofed. During this process I have lost signal from my satellite dish that I use for freeview and sometimes sky. What can I do to try and diagnose the problem. I don't want to call out someone to repair it.I would like to do it myself. 

 

 

 

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

 

 

 

Thanks :)

Trace the cable run and determine that coax hasn't been cut.





Spark FibreMAX using Mikrotik CCR1009-8G-1S-1S+. UAP, UAP AC Pro, UAP AC Pro Mesh, Apple TV 4, Apple TV 4K, iPad Air 1, iPhone 6s, VodaTV Gen 2. If it doesn't move then it's data cabled.

A little more info might help too.

 

Like - Did you remove the Dish and replace it? Did you do anything with the co-ax?

Hi sorry for not being more clear. We were away while this happened then when we came back it was like this. The dish looks to be in the same place.

Was the Dish mounted on the roof? and was removed (and replaced by the roofers)?

 

Then it's likely it is misaligned...

OK. Would be a good idea then to contact whoever did the roofing job and see what they did. Maybe they removed it then put it back and it's no longer aligned?

 

If they did that then you will probably have to get a pro in to re-align it.

 

Mind you, they may not be willing to own up to what they did.

 

If it's a Sky Dish and you still have a current Sky account they may fix it for you but as it was a roof replacement they will probably charge for the job.
