I have a superdish 105. Everything was going fine when all of a sudden I lost signal. I tried all four outputs on the switch and still got no signal. Nothing moved on the dish, so I connected my 119 LNB directly to the Sat. in on my one reciever and the signal is fine. Did my DP34 switch take a crap? Thanks.

What happens if you hook the 110 or 105 lines directly to the receiver?

If all the lines work directly and your lines normally run from dish to swicth with no couplers then it probably is the switch

I was hoping not to pull the assembly apart. What else could it be besides the switch?

how many receivers do you have?

if its more than one and they all are out, most likely the switch is bad

I have two recievers. Both of them have the same symptoms.

One other thing you can try, before you buy a new switch. Sometimes these things get a brain fart. unhook the wire going to the receiver from the dish/switch. Then run a check switch, it will count 1-38 or 1-50 depending if you have SuperDish checked or not. This clears the switch matrix. Then hook the wire back up and make sure the switch is hooked back up. Do the switch test again. Do this on both receivers. If this don't work and you have checked all connections it is more than likely the switch. Probably is though since both died at the same time.

Have you checked the connectors for corrosion? most SD installers put the 34 out there on the pole with no loops.......
