2. Check your dish for any obstructions

To check if there are any obstructions in your dish, you will need to power on your dish and then scan for channels. If there are any channels that are not being received, then you will need to check the dish for obstructions. To check for obstructions, you will need to remove any obstructions with a tool such as a plunger. Once you have removed the obstruction, you will need to scan for channels again.
