Sounds like you need to run new cable.

Besides lower loss and higher frequency rated cable a dish need a DC voltage passed to the LNB for power and tuning. If there are any splitters in your house wireing they will not pass the DC voltage to the LNB.

Was this a self install, or standard professional installation? If a pro did it they are liable to replace the 59 with 6. RG59 is not accepted in the satellite industry. Call them to replace the lower freq cable.
