Code 015

Newbie here,
Woke up Sunday to watch football, turned on TV saw this code. No storm etc and now it`s been over 24 hours.
Transponder keeps searching, not detecting any switches. I have dual lnb with SW44 hooked up to 2 tvs and receivers, one HD and one standard. Everything worked fine Saturday.

Any help would be great without having to pay $75 for a tech to show up and charge me to change my SW44 if that happens to be the problem.

Error 015 is loss of signal.

With an SW44 setup, the first thing I would check is the Power Supply and Power Inserter, ensure the lead is secure in the inserter and that the Power Supply is warm to the touch, ie; has a hydro feed.

And if you pay $75 for a Service Call, that DOES NOT include a replacement SW44, that is an extra $150.
Depending on your receivers I would be looking at getting a DPP Twin LNBF and forget the SW44 anyway.
The design of the connection between the Power Supply and Power Inserter is the worst thing I have ever seen. If it is not twisted correctly, it can pop out almost at will. I know of hundreds of Service Calls, just to re-connect that little plug and almost as many, to plug the Power Supply back
Just double check the cable ends before you spend money on a new one.
