Hi. From Fri night my white sky box started to play up.. Its saying "no satellite signal is being received", number 29 is on the top bar across the screen.. I rang Sky who can't get an engineer out until Jan 4th at the cost of £95!!! We have had bad weather but other people beside me aren't affected like this with their Sky.. Can you help me in any way please??? Many thanks

jb38: thanks I'll try that now.. I did the first two steps above & was going to attempt the third but I'll do your suggestion first. Sky really are a joke at quoting prices! Between 9 calls to them I've had 6 different prices given to me along with different "faults", none where the same!! I do think my dish is affected as its been pretty stormy here.. I was able to watch recordings on Thurs night when it went off but from yesterday nothing. (I meant to write Thurs instead of Fri in my first comment).. Thanks again, fingers crossed it works :-)

jb38: Well I tried your suggestion & its still saying the same thing.. Must either be water in the F connector or my dish has moved with the weather.. Looks like I've no other choice than to pay Sky to fix it !! My broadband is still working, I forgot to mention that earlier.. Any tips on how to bring Sky down on their prices?? Dread having to fork out money to them knowing I pay them £55 per month already.. Thanks for you help.

Rhonda: I forgot to add that a new Sky dish was installed in Feb 2012.. Don't know if that has any relevance to my problems but thought I would mention it.. Just seems weird that Im having the same problem "no signal, No.29" as I did last year.. Sky were able to resend the signal down while I was on the phone with them on that occasion but now they claim "unable to do anything like that".. I think it might work out cheaper for me to cancel my direct debit & Sky then set up a new account with them via one of those "selling/advertising booths" in shopping centres..
