Hi We just had a thunderstorm this evening. During the storm, the dish box went dead. I can hear the disk drive running but there is no light on the front, not Green, or Yellow but power is going in. I tried pushing the buttons for start and reset. I unplugged it waited and plugged it back in. The TV says no signal. I called the Dish Guy in some country or other and after explaining the nonexistent light, is not blinking several times he said that he could send me a new unit, I said that I wanted a technician (I'm going on 82 and it's hard work on down there) and after quite a wait he said that he would send someone on the 22nd of September. I couldn't budge him even by telling him I already have Comcast in the house for my computer and that I could switch. So I decided to ask if anyone here has any ideas of anything else I could try. That's a long time without TV, I can't even watch all the stuff I have recorded. The truth is that I'm pretty sure that we were hit by lightning it wouldn't be the first time but my computer and stuff is OK. The last time is melted the dish. LOL Any ideas appreciated Mike.
