There is nothing more annoying than having your TV signal disrupted while watching a favorite show or a live game. However, before you start cursing your service provider for that, here are a few things you can do to try fixing the issue.
The most common problem that prevents the signal to go from your dish to your receiver is the cabling. It could be as simple as a faulty or loose coaxial cable to the system, while many customers think that it is their receiver or satellite causing the problem. By keeping a few cables around or making sure that the connectors are firmly in their place, this problem can be easily fixed.
When The Dish Does Not Receive The Signal
The satellite dish works when the dish receives a signal from a satellite located above the Southwest region of the United States. However, any block or obstruction may lead to disruption on your television viewing. Signals also can get interrupted when there is heavy snowfall or rain. That, you can’t fix, but you can make sure that no other lingering object is interfering with the signal.
There could be a number of reasons that could affect the alignment of the dish pointing to the satellite. This would rarely be an issue if the installation was done by a professional. But still shifting occurs over time, and you can’t afford having an expert visiting your place always. So make sure your dish alignment is perfect, and as per the instructions provided by the satellite TV service.
Many of the problems can be fixed just by unplugging the receiver for a while and then plugging it back. After being rebooted, a satellite TV receiver will often fix itself just like a PC. Contact the customer care service, if none of the above workarounds goes in your favor. Most of the service providers offer round-the-clock customer support, so you can get in touch with them anytime you need.
