If your voltage measurement is correct, either your BEC is not working, or it's connection to the receiver is bad (or your ESC doesn't have a BEC). If that's the case, your receiver is not getting any power, so the ESC can't initialise and make its beeps -- and your servos won't be working either.

If you've got a standard NiMh receiver battery, you could power your receiver using that, and see if the ESC works then. To be sure it's not the throttle channel on the receiver that's faulty, using the receiver battery, plug any servo into the throttle channel and see if it responds to throttle stick movement.
