Hi All

I ordered a 1.1m Triax which arrived via parcelforce today but it is damaged :(

The links to the pics are below. The dish is damaged in 2 places on the outer rim. There a are 2 pics of each damaged section.

What I need to know is wiil the dish:-

a) work perfectly fine even with the damage
:cool: work perfectly fine if I try and straighten it out
c) is scrap

I just need this info before I contact the seller

Let him have it back, if it were a dish which you already owned it may be worthwhile trying to straighten it, but the shipping should be the responsibility of the seller, so don't waste your time on it.

No satellite stuff for the moment (aside from a 43cm minidish that was on the house already), Samsung SyncMaster T27B550 Smart TV & Monitor, and a few computers...

I agree with rolfw, send it back, you paid for an undamaged dish and haven't got what you paid for...:)

I agree with Rolfw - this is serious damage. I just had one of these fitted and I picked it up my self pending installation. The guy that supplied it knew his stuff and he specifically advised that I should be careful of the rim and he believed that it could have quite an impact on gain.

BTW, worth sticking with - I am over the moon with mine. Excellent gain with an MTI LNB - pulls plenty of weak stuff like 7w, with good gain and low error rate.

On the strong stuff (13e etc) I get 100% gain and quality.


Good luck.

That's some serious damage there, do they jump on the packages?

The seller is sending a new one out and the damaged one will be collected at the same time. I hope the new one arrives intact!

It needs to be replaced you bought a new dish in perfect condition not a damaged one.I think you got the same response on the D Spy board.

Unbelievable. The second dish turned up damaged by parcel force as well :-Nooo )(-red

BUT full marks to the seller who was an ebay seller called worldwidesatellite' he sent a third dish out via City Link and it arrived undamaged yesterday :). He is going to claim against parcel force for the damaged dishes and get them to collect them.

Just got to wait for a nice sunny weekend with no wind now to have a go at installing it :cool:

These are the guys (the ones you name) that supplied and set up my Triax & Stab, and really bent over backwards to advise and help - full marks to a to a really good bunch of guys.:-thumb1. Apologies if this breaks any forum rules but just think credit where it is due.
