Hitec Aurora 9 Switch and/or Display Problem.

Tried again and it came on. I know this has been reported by others. First time on this radio for me.
My previous A9 did it first thing when I got it home from the store (returned that one).
When turning an Aurora off, it auto saves that sessions information and settings which takes
a variable time to flash to memory.
(This even though the LED may no longer be lit).
If turned on again to quickly, before it has had time to sort and save all the programming and settings
of the previous session, similar to all flash drives and PC, it could cause a problem.
In need, wait awhile and try again or same as happens with a PC, disconnect power,
wait a moment and then restart and check settings from previous session are correct.

"Screen Lights Up but No Display
"James- It's an anomaly that happens on occasion when the CPU doesn't boot but the screen is powered.
Turn it off and on again and 99.9% of the time it boots up fine.
I've never seen this turn off in flight or cause an issue.
The most important factor is that the RX be up to date with the latest V2.02 firmware.
If the radio was purchased recently and has firmware V1.08(1) in the transmitter then most likely it is.
I would suggest he call us so we can troubleshoot further. - Mike."

"Just a follow up on this for the information of others.
The screen/radio on my A9 work perfectly and do not have an issue unless I get close to my 900 Mhz 600 mw video Tx for my FPV system.
I'm sure most all FPV guys know this already"
