check connections in to sat box,,if those ok then sure one of funsters will nip up on roof to check connections to lmb at dish ok....sometimes turning off and re seting does the trick....and is it finding the sat ?

many many years! since I was a kid
LNBs do fail, as do cables and connections corrode. the easiest way to double check is run a temporary coax from the sat box to the LNB
otherwise you will need to get a replacement LNB from Oyster or have somebody fit one for you

Hi. if it says LNB failure then either the LNB is faulty or the power supply to it so as already mentioned above check the connections at the Digi box are secure. then its up on roof to check the connection to the LNB. if all the correct connections are in place and there is voltage to the LNB then it is likely a new LNB is needed.

i am assuming that the dish does raise and turns to search.

I suspect just a badly fitting "F" plug...
The Inner and outer cables often slide and can cause a short or poor connection, having it on a mobile vehicle and a turning dish gives it all the more chance...
Glad you got it sorted and also at a sensible price."

You're correct in principal but the OP trumped you with their answer
