You are correct in removing it.
After binding, you do turn the Tx on first correct? Give it 5 to 10 seconds before connecting battery.
And be sure you unplug the batt first to shutdown.
Thanks -- yes I do turn on the TX first and turn it off last.

Actually, I got a response in another thread about this issue, which I think might help others, so I'll copy it below. I have not tried these steps yet, but my suspicion is that I have a bad receiver.

Insert the bind plug into the batt slot and plug the ESC cable into Ch1 (or any other for now). Note the correct orientation of the plug as indicated on the receiver. Plug the ESC into a 2 or 3-cell LiPo. Leave the transmitter OFF.

You should see rapid flashing of the LED, indicating that the receiver is in bind mode.

Possibilities if it doesn't flash include:

Connector reversed (try it the other way)
Bad bind plug (try another)
Lack of power (try another ESC)
Dead battery (try another)
Bad receiver (send it back)

If you don't see the receiver flashing, there's no point in thinking about any other issues as nothing can happen if it's not in bind mode.
