I have a VP-1020a myself , it doesn't have any problems on the
transponders that i have.
Since you can tune to other frequencies, i doubt that it is a problem
with the tuner.
However, i would like to have some more info from you as to understand
what could be causing this. For example, satellite, frequencies etc ..
I had a faint thought about what could be causing this, Andrew also has
a similar thought,(but these are just guesses) but to check it out
whether that itself is the case might require a bit of time.
Anyway require some info from you on your transponders/satellite etc.
