Troubleshooting Steps

Step 1 – Check if it is the TV itself, or the DSTV that is the problem.  To do this, simply tune into one of the SABC stations that are programmed into your TV.  If the SABC station works, then it is not the TV.  If there is nothing displaying, either on SABC or DSTV then you know that it is your TV and you need to get someone from us to perform TV Repairs for you.

Step 2 – Check if it is the decoder.  Plug a spare decoder in and see if your DSTV is working or not.  If the DSTV works on your spare decoder then you know that the decoder is the problem.  You can then contact our Durban team for one of our accredited Ellies technicians to provide you with decoder repair services.

Step 3 – Check your satellite dish.  If both the TV and the decoder have not solved the problem, it could be a problem with the DSTV dish or the TV aerial.  First unplug the TV antenna and see if that makes your DSTV display correctly, if the display is now correct you need to have your TV aerial or satellite repair done.  If there is still no improvement, you will need to get us to send one of our professional installers for DSTv repairs in Durban for your satellite dish to be done.

DSTV Dish Repairs

If you have done the troubleshooting yourself and have found that the satellite dish is the problem you will probably want to dash to the shops and buy a new dish, but this is not always necessary.  Although a dish is not infallible, it is very seldom that a brand new dish is necessary as the problem with the dish is more often than not, misalignment.
