    Openbox s9 "No Signal" issue

    Evening All,

    Recently my Openbox, when switched on gives me a perfect picture an signal for all of 5 minutes and then just cuts out and gives me a "No Signal" message.

    When I turn it on, I have a signal intensity of around 84% and signal quality of around 74%, then a few minutes later, my signal intensity drops to 45% and signal quality fluctuates from 4 to 5%.

    Has anyone else come across this problem? Any idea's on what the issue may be?? I'm sure my Dish is positioned perfectly as I put it up myself using a digital signal tester, it's only been up a year and I don't see any issue's with the LNB either, I can understand signal problems when there's bad weather, but the weather has settled, so no chance of it being that!

    Any advice would be great, I'm going to try my mates box in a few days to make sure there aint a problem with the dish, I'm thinking the tuner may be knackered on the openbox, even though I hardly use it!!

    Re: Openbox s9 "No Signal" issue

    Ok, I've come to the conclusion that it needs a new tuner, been searching around for info on where to buy one and a guide on how to replace it but I can't seem to be able to find anything.

    Has anyone here replaced a tuner in one of these boxes??

    did you check your cable sounds there may be water damage also check cable at lnb if its up a year may need to snip off a couple of inches and redo the f connector connection

    Re: Openbox s9 "No Signal" issue

    Thanks for your reply.

    There aint no problem with my cableing, dish or the f-connectors as I have an s10 now running just fine! But I am only borrowed it for a few days, so still need to get my s9 to work or will have to fork out for another box :-(

    So has anyone got any input on where I may be able to get a replacement tuner for it and any guides on how to replace it??
