Question RCA Satellite Receiver

When I change channels from 204-206 etc. to my local channels 2-4-7 etc. the screen stays black and the message (searching for satellite signal,please stand by) appears. I need to unplug my receiver and reacquire the signal in order to view the local channels. I called DIRECTV and the support tech told me that the LNB (sat119) was probably bad. Any thoughts and help would be appreciated.

Do you have..

more than one reciever in the house? Are all of them having the same problem?

I would probably cover my bases, check all connections to make sure they're tight-both inside and out. If the satellite dish itself is really dirty, it probably wouldn't hurt to clean it.

Maybe check your signal stregnth on the on-screen menus, i had my dish get moved after a bad storm had came through-it didn't move much, just enough though.

Hope this helps!
