I've had a pansat 9200 hd for three years now, and from day one the unit froze up constantly and the S2 signals showed 25 signal and 25 quaitly. I than purchased the az plus S2 signals no problem, The power supply quit and while waiting for parts I hooked up the 9200, well it started freezing up and no S2 signal . I searched sites and found that Pansat was gluing the heat sinks on, well sure enough I pry-ed the heat sinks off with a screwdriver ( it popped right off) cleaned off the thick glue from the process er and heat sink, put some heat sink compound on the center of the process er and 4 dabs of super glue on the 4 corners , I than removed and did a quick check on the S2 board and reinstalled it..Well no freezing and 89 quality. It's been running 2 nights now, only a no signal pops up for a few seconds but picture and quality is still there. Bottom line when I installed a PC fan a time back to cool down processors did'nt help because heat could not be transfer ed to the heat sink so the fan could blow it away.

Thanks for that info. Can,t say I have had that problem with my 9200 but good to know and worth a try if it starts to act up!

Kind of curious about that az plus power supply. You say you were waiting for parts. What parts were you replacing ?

And are  the AZ Boxes still having power supply problems , as I thought they had that all  worked out or is this a older used receiver you picked up ?

Thanks

Iggy

I had the newer power supply, but like anything else built by human hands failed, I replaced the blown 3.15 ? amp fast blow fuse with a 5 amp fast blow fuse also replaced the capacitor and the recifier , since all parts checked out ( other than the fuse ) and not knowing if the other parts would fail due to heat. all parts included were cheaper than the $ 8.00 shipping price. There is a thread in the az plus section of this forum showing the tests and parts needed.

Fellow Members, your posts are welcome here! Do not worry about posting everything perfect. Different receivers and LNB's will give you different Frequencies and Symbol Rates. Some set top boxes, PCI cards and USB receivers, Do Not Require all of the same information that others may need. It is not Required to post everything that others may need to tune in a feed. It is just most important to share the find. We can always adjust the Frequency and Symbol Rates and try the various Modulations and FEC's on our own receivers until we get a lock and then give a polite reply with what works for your receiver, as that information might help others as well.
