    • DiseqC Technomate 2600 M3 failing to lock onto 28E. (intermittent) need to revert to receiver menu

      Hi, I would appreciate any ideas on the above? Facts:- Receiver is the old Icord HD. Current software GLXSCI 10039 28 Nov 2013!! CoAx Labgear PF 100 25 metre run receiver to postioner no joins. (New cable) I have 2 DisecQ positioners the other being the Nylon drive type. Experiment, connect either one to the Icord on a short coax, each postioner goes to the same place, Guess 28E, but as you know the angular scale is crude,Measured the distance with a vernier caliper. Sat posns normally in use 13E, 19.2E and 28E. Dish is a temporary 60 Cm unit. I've tried increasing the LNB volts to Hi on the Icord...no difference. Will the positioner go beyond 28E?..yes. When 28E fails, if I go to the Icord menu and select go to posn 28E there is no effect. Force go East 2 secs, later quality goes from 0 to 100% on the Icord menu.I suspect the M3 gearbox, but to gain access to this is a pain in the ????. More so, as the top half of the unit forms a bearing for the quadrant gear. Why did I abandon a 36v drive system that has worked for 30 years....it's a long story, along with a new 1m dish that I've temporarily duffed. I get the "Wally of the Week" award for the latter Best regards John
