Hello guys,
I recently had one of my Satellite AV Dual Outputs go bad on my C2. It has been in service since Jan 2012. Would it be worth removing the four screws to look inside? Not that I would know what to do! Do you think this would be covered under warranty? It's been a great LNBF and if not repaired, might think about going with the new Titanium C-Band Dual PLL! Just thinking out loud. I checked online, but they are still out of stock.
Thanks for reading.

Assuming it's not covered by warranty, you could certainly open it up and see if it has water in it.

I had a dual C-Band LNBF on a small dish that wasn't working, so I opened it up and found that it had water. I think the water seeped in through the connectors, because the LNBF was on a different angle for the small offset dish.

Anyway, after I dried it out, it worked fine. I had to make sure it was sealed well after I put it back together, but it still works.

I rescued mine, water had gotten in causing trouble. Used some ethel alcohol, special stuff for cleaning etc, seemed to do the trick. Also soaked the board in distilled water first to hopefully dissolve the deposits on the board. Got it up and working.
Good to use waterproof connectors if possible...
Good luck...
Maybe time for a new C2PLL?

I checked inside and was dry. It must be something else that is wrong. I'll keep a watch on the new PLL.

I 'lost' a dual output DMS to water infiltration . Think it developed a leak in the cover seal as it was easy to pop off. Cleaned up with a little brush and denatured alcohol. It's now 'standby' unit as was replaced with a C2. (with a loose fitting 2 liter soda bottle cover, held in place with zip ties, so it don't happen again)
