Another possibility is that the fiber you're using has higher attenuation
at 1471nm than at 1310. While 1471 is outside of the 'water peak' band
(E band - 1360-1460nm, centered at 1383nm, iirc), the type of fiber could
could still have higher attenuation that runs into the S and O bands.
If replacing optics doesn't solve the issue, you'll probably need a test
set that can test specifically at 1471 nm.
