If the above method does not work, the LNB may have a fault.
Press the [SERVICES] button and then press    then [SELECT]
On Sky HD, press the [SERVICES] button and then press    then [SELECT]
Press the buttons in the sequence above exactly - do not atttempt to use [UP] or [DOWN]. Note that when you press the second 0 and 1 nothing happens on the screen until you press the final [SELECT]. This is a "hidden menu".
Sparky: You should concentrate on the horizontal plane, as reception problems only experienced during windy weather are usually always related to horizontal (left / right) movement of the dish.
However, that said is based on the dish "not" being firmly mounted, i.e: screws holding same not tightened properly, if though they are? then unscrew the "F" connector from the LNB, further unscrewing said connector from the coax to enable it (plus coax) to be checked internally for any signs of water, as droplets of water can cause the problems referred to.
If all appears OK reassemble it, making sure that all individual strands of the braiding are pulled back over the outer cover of the coax, this being to avoid the possibility of them becoming wrapped around the inner core of the coax whilst screwing the "F" connector back on again.
By the way, these cheap satellite signal detectors can be obtained from numerous e-bay sources for around £5.00+ or so, the types with an analogue pointer meter and a dB adjuster being ideal for the purpose intended. But though as previously touched on, adjustments to the dish made in slow motion is the key to success.

tony: This in most cases, indicates a short circuit on the coax connected into the LNB output socket, if the message disappears on removing same?, the "F" connectors at both ends of the cable should be unscrewed from the coax and checked for any strands of the braiding touching the middle core, all strands having to be pulled well back over the outer covering prior to screwing the connector on.
That said, if this has happened a short time after a spell of rainy weather? the problem is most likely down to water having entered the LNB's (dish end) connector, particular attention being given to any signs of water contamination on the coax as well as the connector.
Assigning sky+ boxes to sky+ apps
We have 2 sky+ boxes and 2 ipads, with the sky+ apps installed, in our house.
We would like to assign each ipad to its own box but arn't finding it easy to do.
We have been in touch with Sky, trying to get advice, but that isn't proving to be very
helpfull. We would appreciate any advice that people can give, thanks.
Thank you for advice. Sky box had displayed no signal despite aerial being fine. Used reset on third method and bingo ! All perfect. Will recommend you to friends. Why can't Sky itself be more helpful !
You must see what fault sceen is showing if it is showing error 25 or 29 and because of this unable to receive signal, it requires you to troubleshoot your Sky Box by following different methods:
Resetting of Sky box: In this method you have to unplug it from 240 V main supply. After that wait for 30 minutes and then replug it to power supply. After that if you are getting the same message " No satellite signal is being received Error 25 or 29. Mostly this problem is solved by resetting the Sky Box.
2nd Method : During winds there is misalignment of dish and it must be sure that there is not any damage to dish reflector.
3 rd Method : Check that there should be no damage to LNB cable.
4th Method: The dish and the Sky box has screws associated with it. It should be ensured that that all the screws on F-connectors are tight on both the ends.
5th Method : Interchange LNB cableIn case you are not satisfied with the solution you can visit here No Satellite Signal is Being Received - Error 25/29
