    Motorised Dish Help

    I had a motorised dish installed a few years ago by purplesat and its been fine. I haven't used it for a few weeks and went to scan in a feed last night and was getting no signal which was odd. After trying a few other sats and going out to have a look at the dish it wasn't moving. I tried reseating the cable into the back of the receiver and powering it off to no avail, I could see a green light on the motor when looking up at the dish last night.

    Any idea how I can kick it back into life, preferably without going up a ladder that i don't have.

    I have no idea what brand the motor is.

    Receiver is a VU+ solo 4k running latest vix version.

    Any suggestions would be much appreciated.


    Thanks,

    Possible that some water had got in at the cable connection at the dish end causing a short, then dried out enough for it to start working again. Worth getting it checked before winter sets in.
