Sky is the favoured provider of satellite television in many homes and businesses across Ayr. It is something that we come to rely on and enjoy. In the main, it is a trouble free system but, there are things that can go wrong with it.
However, the good news is that the system is relatively simple. With very few moving parts, the technology behind the system is easy to use with faults also relatively simple to diagnose… but only if you know how.
There are, however, some issues that are more common than others and in a sense, are easy to spot. The biggest factor in the malfunctioning of a satellite installation is weather, and the damage it can do to various parts;
We get many calls for help as part of our Sky installations and repairs service in Ayr after poor weather or storms. The ferocity of weather can be such that the satellite dish can be moved, the arm can be damaged, the cabling can be damaged too and rainwater or debris (or both!) forced into component parts that can cause an immediate problem.
Weather however, is something that is apparent and all around us at all times. Over time, outside structures such as satellite dishes can be worn down and weakened by the weather, including wind, rain and sun.
High winds can cause the satellite to move out of alignment. When this happens, the satellite signals do not have a clear path that they can follow and thus, the picture quality can be intermittent. The loss of signal can be intermittent - leading to short term loss of picture quality or picture freezing, both of which can be frustrating.
Over time, this can lead to a complete loss of the picture and so you may be in need of our Sky installations and repairs service in Ayr.
Rainwater can be invasive and damaging, especially if it is allowed to seep in through ill-fitting or damaged connections. When the outer protective layer is penetrated too, rainwater can seep in, damaging the internal wires.
Add to this the variations in temperature, freezing and high temperatures, the cables begin to breakdown. These are the tubes along which the data is carried and thus if they are damaged or impaired in any way, then the signal data will not be transferred from dish to set top box, to the TV.
