Forwarded from Hussein Munawer:
thank you in advance for your kind cooperation.
I have a problem and looking forward for your advice if possible :
I bought a SR_ 5500 echo star satellite receiver. The problem with this
receiver is as following :
1 . the receiver is Asia version .i.e. it is designed to receive
signals from 950 _1750 MHz . it does not have an internal 13 volt
unit to shift between 13 volt and 18 volt in order to receive the Ku
and Ku wide band signals . because of that the LNBs wide band needs
two voltages 13 and 18 volt .
2 . I have installed a C+KUfeed horn so that the receiver should be
able to receive Ku (950_1750mhz) signals . as when I first used the Ku
wide band LNB it was not able to receive, it received only the wide
3 . I consulted a technician and he adjust the receiver by adding
internal 13 volt unit . this adjustment, as he suggested should enabled
the receiver to receive the Ku signals Ku wide band LNB . yet the
technician made a shift on the LNB by 160 MHz to wide band and 200 MHz
to Ku . that from worked some how but some signals still lost . it
needed a shift up to 250 MHz ( type of LNB gardinar)
4 . after doing the steps mentioned above the sat. TVs received on
the wide band lost during the day time and came back again during the
5 . the wide band signals (TVs) appear during the rainy weather days
and nights , but during the last few days I lost all the wide band
signals (TVs stations) day and night even when it is rainy weather .
6 . somebody told me that it could be defect of the LNB which caused
such problem ,others said it could be the voltage of the receiver either
the internal 13 and 18 volt or the electricity power (elec. Pow N/A)
dear sir after I show the problem of my receiver the questions raised
Now I would be grateful if you can help me in knowing what is/are
reason/s of this problem
n what is the ideal solution of the receiver regardless of the
modification done (assume that there is no modification what should be
n is there any built-in LNB Ku wide band. Could it be installed on
the feed horn to shift it to 950_1750 (original signals 950_2050 MHz) .
n is there any internal tuner could replace the current one of the
ECHO STAR _SR5500 copy right 1989/ 1991 to enable the receiver
receiving wide band and KU signals in addition to a device that makes
shift between 13 and 18 volt .
n is there any external device that could solve the whole problem
with out any modifications being done to the receiver.
Finally thank you for your patience to read my letter and I am sure of
your cooperation to solve the whole problem of my receiver by telling
me about the steps to be done and the spare parts to be used in full
detail and how to obtain the spare parts or devices required
waiting for your reply
with my best regards
