Take that Martha.
I was ready to give it a proper burial in the trash can when I went for a hail mary pass in performing emergency surgery with an exacto knife. First I found a manual on how to bind this particular receiver but that would not work. RX light still wouldn't come on.
Figured I couldn't make it worse so I broke out the scalpel, put the patient under and got to work cutting the pins on one side of a chip that was looking at me funny. After I mangled it up good with the exacto knife, I put some more solder blobs on it and presto, the light now comes on.
Don't ask me how that fixed it but I'm not going to argue with it. The red mark area shows how big the solder blob was that originally messed it up.
