My take is that you lnb is just fine but the skew angle(which is the angle you adjust by rotating the lnb)
is not adjusted to its proper position. different sat have different skew angle, for example yahsat
is around 54 degree to your left where as God channel is around 73(you could find the exact figures from my other posts).
But there is always a possibility that the lnb is fired. That usuall occured if you put the cable
inplace while the receiver power is on. Usually diseq switches are more likely to faile that way
than LNbs do. Also take out any diseq switch in betwee(if there is any) and connect it directly to
the receiver(to see if it is not a case of a dead switch).
If you have another LNB which you use it for nile sat forexample, take out that lnb and put
inplace the one you used to use it for intelsat20, then adjust the skew angle there. Then you
will find out if the lnb in question is bad or not.
from my experiance,if you had it hit hard with something or if it were droped on hard surface, they are more likely to faile. But they are more resistance and tolerant to receiver power fluctuation or surge current.
