Swap the boxes over, that will tell you if the fault is with the minibox or the LNB/cable that feeds it.
It is quite possible for a QUAD LNB to have a fault on a single output while the other three work fine.

If the fault is with the LNB then make sure the guy they send swaps the LNB for a new one, he might just connect the cable to the spare output which in the long term might come back and bite ya:)
