Called Yesterday for a tech to come out, Today i changed one little adapter, and then went outside and disconnected and reconnected and retighening one cable coming from Dish, and one going inside--anyways it's working again, appears fine, so should i keep the Tech appointment for Friday or cancel it?
Below is a picture of item i replaced, this was given to me by the Tech when he originally did the install in May, so far working fine, but yes i agree if i do cancel, it could come back, and then i'd have to reschedule another appointment
Ok, so you replaced a barrel connector. Was this barrel inside or outside? Did it have weather boots on it, and if so did you move them to the new barrel and make sure to get them on correctly? Did you put any dielectric grease in the outdoor connections?
Thanks for the replies, and agree will wait and see how it does before i decide on cancelling or keeping the appointment..
Had this issue during the original install, is only reason how i knew what the possible fix maybe, as the Tech told me when he gave me the connector if you should experience that issue again, this should fix it..
So far seems to have fixed it, but do wanna make totally sure before i decide on if keeping or canceling appointment
