Internet down sqf 15 no transmit, receive, or system lights

Hey there. Internet has been down for over a week now. Initially the issue started about a month ago and I could power cycle the modem and it would temporarily fix the problem, this no longer works. System, receive, and transmit lights are not illuminating. Signal quality is at 15. Checked all coax connections, I even brought modem and router outside and hooked directly to coax going to transmitter with no signal change ( to rule out connection issues due to long length of cable). I also should mention I have the ht1100 modem. Attempted to reset modem and now it is stuck on the pointing process due to the low sqf. I’m assuming my modem is the problem, or possibly the radio considering the sqf will change 1 or 2 points if I “nudge” the satellite, and occasionally jump to 29 or so sporadically for a second or so. Any help would be appreciated

@Jakelawrence,

 

Thank you for reaching out and I am sorry to hear you are experiencing this. I also apologize for the delay in response. I took a look into this and ran diagnostics on your equipment myself. I can definitely confirm that your signal strength is extremely low but the modem itself does seem to be functioning properly. This means a re-point is required and a possible radio replacement as well. The radio replacement depends on the results after the dish has been re-pointed. If you do end up having a technician come out, they will have a radio transmitter replacement ready to be installed, just in case. While I do wish this could be resolved remotely, a re-point of the dish and possible replacement of the radio would need to be performed by a technician on site. 

 

At this time, your options are to have a technician sent out either by calling our support number or having me process one specifically, or upgrading to GEN 5. Both of these would resolve this issue but based on your previous comments, I'm sure a repair is what you are leaning more towards. Please let me know what you would like to do going forward.

The reps on this site will have to check your modem remotely -- they will be back on Monday.

Being that it was giving a signal strength of 15 it's likely that it's not the modem, but rather more having to do with either a pointing issue or an issue with the radio itself, though anything's possible.  

 

Unfortunately, the reps won't be back until Monday, but they'll likely reply then.   If you don't want to wait until then, you can call tech support at 866-347-3292.  

 

For future reference, it's generally not a good idea to do anything with the coax fittings at the dish.  These normally have a seal, or at least some dielectric grease, providing protection from moisture.  Opening them can negatively affect that protection.

Thanks for the input, I really appreciate. Yes there was dielectric grease on connections, reapplied before reconnecting. Hopefully it is something that the technicians can repair on their end, but it definitely seems like a hardware issue from what I’m experiencing

I also failed to mention I am getting an error code of 2.2.1 “an outside unit problem has occurred” I believe is what it said

Your best bet is to wait until the reps on this site are back next week. They can run remote diagnostics on your equipment  to figure out what's going on, and they can dispatch a tech if needed.

In the off chance they may have missed your post, I'm going to tag a couple of reps to ensure you get a reply soon.
