Fixing DStv Signal Problems
DStv no signal problems are quite common. A DStv decoder that is experiencing a signal problem displays the error code – E48-32 on the TV. The error message is accompanied by the message – “This error may be due to bad weather or a faulty cable“.
Common dstv signal errors
- There is no signal. This might be due to bad weather or a faulty connection in the installation (E48-32).
This error means your DStv decoder is not receiving any signal from the satellite dish. This can be due to incorrect settings or a misaligned dish and LNB.
- DStv no signal on certain channels.
This error occurs when the DStv signal strength is too low, usually below 50%.
- DStv decoders losing signal intermittently.
This means your decoder tuner frequencies are wrong. So decoders will be clashing causing signal loss.
In the event that your DStv setup loses signal, talk to us. Our technicians use the right tools to fix DStv signal problems. In addition, they know the best places to get the best DStv signal. Find out how you can improve your DStv signal strength on your own.
What causes DStv to lose signal
The E48-32 error means your decoder is not receiving the DStv signal from the satellite dish outside. Here is a list of issues that can cause this problem:
- a misaligned satellite dish
- a dish with a broken arm
- broken or brittle cables
- a faulty LNB
- loose cable connections
- incorrect decoder settings

Satellite Dish Replacements
Over time, galvanized satellite dishes will suffer from corrosion that is caused by rust. When your satellite dish is rusty it can not reflect the DStv signal from the space satellite. Therefore, there will be a reduction in signal quality.
To add to that, the arm which holds the LNB in position can also break due to excessive rust. If the arm of the dish breaks, you lose your DStv signal. The only way to fix this problem is to replace the whole dish kit.
How to fix a rusty or broken satellite dish?
Replacing a satellite dish requires a trained DStv installer. This is because the satellite dish needs the correct alignment to ensure the reception of good signal strength and quality. Poor dish alignment will result in a no signal error or some DStv channels missing.
If you are using a DStv explora decoder then a good signal strength and quality is a must. The Explora decoder requires signal strenght and quality that is above 70% to function properly.
Our DStv installation Midrand service also covers satellite dish replacements. We keep a stock of all kinds of steel, aluminium and fiber satellite dishes. Our technicians use machines to align your DStv aerial.
DStv LNB Replacements
Because the LNB stays outside, it is affected by weather elements like direct sunlight and lightning. Direct sunlight makes the front part of the LNB which faces the satellite dish to be brittle. Continuous exposure to sunlight causes the LNB to break. A broken LNB allows water to seep inside and cause decoder short-circuiting. The decoder will also lose signal in the process.
If there is a heavy storm with thunder, lightning surges will damage your LNB. If this happens, you have to replace the LNB. While replacing the LNB seems to be an easy DIY, most people falsely diagnose the LNB. This happens because there is no comprehensive testing that is done to determine whether the LNB is still functional or not.
Since our DStv installation Midrand service is professional, our technicians perform rigorous testing of DStv accessories. We make sure that there is no room for misdiagnoses.
We also keep stock of all types of LNBs that we sell at a reasonable price. So, we supply quality replacement parts that carry a 1-year guarantee.
