    Default I put my T5 out of service

    While working on some other gear in my TV cabinet, I inadvertently shoved my Dreamlink T5 back into the enclosure and I believe I heard a "snap" and the TV screen suddenly indicated "Scrambled". My guess is I damaged the line input connection from the dish or perhaps the USB or internet line connections???

    I have since tried new power supplies (OK) and plugging the receiver into another tv connection but no luck. It will play prerecorded programs via USB sticks. This would suggest a problem with the signal processing or connectors for coax cable, etc. Since these receivers are very difficult to find, I am going to open the unit up and see what I can see for problem areas. I don't have much solid state experience but I used to restore antique radios and am used to soldering and all that. Anyway, nothing lost if I screw up as it pretty much a brick now. Any suggestions as to the most likely cause?

    Thanks

    Go into the menu, if you can see it, & look at network config.It will tell you if you have internet & server connection.I bet it doesn't.Try another lan cable first.If still no connection, look carefully at the lan header on the mainboard.Go from there.
