yes, that is correct boom... it will give you a false reading

ideally its best to remove the component to test it.. unless you have a schematic diagram of whatever you are fixing.

in adition when checking resistance generally the hotter it is (recent use) the lower the resistance will be & the inverse is also correct (generally speaking, most materials follow this rule)... when checking capacitance in this manner the ohm meter's battery is actually supplying the charge for the cap... & yes u need to isolate all circuits so u dont read the other components

Thanks for the parts list! My 9200HD died a few months back, then my azbox died, then my 9500HD started acting funny. I figured I'd better get my backup STB's working again or we'll have a grumpy family if the 9500 decides to bite it. Pansat (or whatever electronic repair shop that answers the phone now) wanted $60 for a new one, or $50 to repair the existing one. I figured it's worth the $40 to try and repair it. I'm not that bad with a soldering iron so I figured I can give it a shot. Worst case scenario is I'll have to purchase a new one...

Curious to know if you tried force loading V1226 via USB.

If force loading, you would have to rename file to API_FILE.bin

This would work for b08 errors also. Provided the PSU is ok.

It didn't cost me $40 to fix mine. I can't remember how much it was but it was quite a bit less than that if memory serves. At any rate, I don't forsee you having any problems. Good luck

Caps came in, $29 for parts, $10 for shipping. We'll see if my soldering capabilities can fix it!

hello all thanks for the pictures and suggested capacitors.........when out and only change the 2 that looked blown(actually bought all the listed capacitors) but when i changed the 2 nothing came on so i went ahead and changed all except the 2 small one i had misplaced them.   turned on the unit and presto instant on. hooray!! Now for the mystery...........I have a 37" Polariod lcd tv that has picture in picture feature so dont want to get rid of it.........i hooked up the pansat 9200 connected the hdmi cable and began maneuvering on the pansat remote unfortunately it would change the channel on the Poariod TV any suggests.

That's been a common problem with the 9200. There is a UHF remote kit for this unit that may work for you.  It's a U-50

Hey guys, I'm having a no power problem on my pansat 9200hd.

When i flip switch on, i only hear a small "click" from the power supply board and the click is continuous, with a second pause in between.

I noticed that also the SPDIF port light blinks like a beacon.

I checked all caps on power board and main board but i cannot see anything wrong.

I checked and the power board is supplying voltages on the main power connector to the board.  Does this still mean it can be the caps on the power board?  I'm just confused how to locate the problem here.

Thanks.

Hey there intelsat,  yes it can still be the caps. I couldn't see anything obviously wrong with mine but, changing them fixed the problem. I'd go ahead and do that if I were you

Alright thank you. I just ordered solder kit and multimeter to play around with so I'll try to change em' out and I'll report back.

If any of the caps show even a slight bulging at the top it's a good bet it's bad.

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. We all appreciate the efforts and energy of the Posters!
