Default Linkbox 9000i Stopped getting Sat Signal


Linkbox 9000i Stopped getting Sat Signal all of a sudden.

Bought a sat signal finder which shows i am getting signal.

Echo 10/11 Transponder 50/55 12603 V 20000 will come in locked but after several minutes. (98% 98%)
Scanning for channels doesn't bring any back.

Some times other transponders work, some times transponders come in quicker.

It seems very unpredictable on what it will do.

I have two of everything and have tried switching out hardware components with the same results.

One thing i don't have is 2 modern receivers.

I am starting to think it may be the receiver but i have an older coolsat that i hooked up and it is getting 0%

Leaving Transponder 50/55 12603 V 20000 and coming back again takes several minutes to lock.

I'm guessing this is why when scanning nothing gets picked up

On Echo 10/11 loading the newest factory file has the lock coming in quicker but only on transponders 50+

Any suggestions?

Sounds like it could be a bad connection.
Such as.. center wire is corroded, rusty,
You might laugh, but it could be wasps or something that has gotten inside the eye of the LNB,
or Snow is on the dish and LNB.
Could be a bad switch.
Settings might have accidentally changed.
could be a defective LS500 Module
you have to check things out 1 step at a time to eliminate them. to find what it might be.

Do you have a spare LS500 HD Module? or a friend who might let you borrow theirs.. or take your receiver to a friend or relative and see that has a dish that is compatible and see if it works there . for a few possibles.

unfortunately I do not have a spare LS500 and to not know anyone with a FTA.

Are LS500 know to go out this way?

I don't think it is the cable/connections as i pulled the dish off the roof and from inside my house pointed out the window with the same results using a different cable.

Things have changed a few years ago. You will have to load the latest factory file & then third party file if that's what you have decided to do OR you can look at this file from the SV8000 section. Post 2 is the latest.
