5.8G 200mw with GoPro2 - Black Screen
Ok I have the typical BEVRC 5.8G 200mw RX and TX set. The TX is the TS 58200 and the RX is the RC 5808. I ordered a 2.5mm AV cable for the GoPro2 I have and have soldered everything properly.
Expecting good results which I have read about here and other places, I was very disappointed when all I got was a blank screen. No static, just pure black. I believe I have everything set properly, but no joy no matter what I try. Beginning to think I have a bad unit. Here is how I am testing the system:
Gopro2 on and recording (tried both recording and non recording modes)
2.5mm AV out cable goes to TX, Only video and ground hooked up.
Cable and jack checked with ohm meter, all good.
TX powered by 3s Lipo, pulling power off small connector of Batt. ~12.3v
TX tried with both stock and Clover leaf antennas. Never Powered without Antennas.
Nearly all channel combinations tried. Does not appear to be channel issue as there is no picture at all.
RX powered by 3s Lipo pulling power off small connector of Batt. ~12.3v
Stock RCA cord plugged in back and yellow video connector plugged into composite video input on TV.
RX sees the Transmitter because I turn on the RX first which gives me light static on the TV. Soon as I turn on the TX the static goes away and the screen is black. No image what so ever.
Everything is on, batts well charged, I even tried supplying power to the GoPro usb connection to see if that would make a difference - no joy. Also tried a second GoPro camera, no joy.
Any help would be great. I have run out of things to try. The only other thing I might try is to redo the video input cable on the TX with a male RCA plug and try different video devices other than the GoPros.

Have you hooked up the GP directly to a monitor or tv? Make sure you have things selected correctly as well, I think it defaults to a menu when first turned on with video out enabled etc (for GP 2 at least)
