Working on an in-motion satellite with a D12 receiver. The LNB is fine, the satellites locks in at about 85%. I am only getting odd transponders and no evens. The D12 receiver is about 12 years old. I have to say that I have troubleshooted this satellite for hours. Its working properly till I check the transponders. Replaced Lnb, hooked straight into the LNB without going through any electronics from the satellite. I specialize in RV satellites and I am an authorized winegard repair facility. I dont remember if I have ever ran into this problem but I would like to know that if a receiver is malfunctioning will it cause this problem I am having. Anybody with any info, please chime in
There is an easy way to test. Get a multi-meter with a coax jumper with a fitting on one end and a prep cable on the other no fitting. Set the receiver to the signal meter screen. The meter should toggle between ~18v and ~13v. If the multi-meter only reports 13v, then you can pretty much say the receiver is shot.
