Am interested in any information people might have on repairing the tuners in these Sky boxes (Pace 2200). I have a couple of units, both I think have faulty tuners - they are of the later (newer, Non-ZIF) variety.
Hi Rolf - Yep I'm aware of Martin and Satcure,have spoken to him on a couple of occasions. The info he supplies is of great quality but there is no mention of what's actually involved in repairing these tuners..
He does give valuable info on how to replace them though.
What I was more interested in though was some actual technical info on what actually fails in these tuners..
I've got a Pace 2200 service manual. If it's any use, I can check to see if it has the circuit diagram for your tuner. Off the top of my head, I think it has the circuit for the ZIF tuner but maybe there is some information on other tuners. I've also got a 2500 service manual but I don't know if this uses the same tuner as your later version of the 2200.
