Spektrum Dx7s

Having trouble with my DX7S I cannot get it to bind with my Rxs, I have tried it with Ar 6200. AR 500 AR 600, sent it to H.H. here in the UK they had some tests run but they could find nothing wrong with it,but to be on the safe side they put another RF board in,came back yesterday tried the same Rxs again it would not bind,but I tried a Orange Rx and it bound,but the rudder,elevator,were the only two control services that would work,so I changed the esc for another one but this one wouldn't work,any of you guys had this happen to you ?

The Tx is now on its way back to H.H.

Usually ESC arming problems are due to not adjusting the throttle trim all the way down.

You should have 2m between tx and rx when binding.

Send in the receivers you have trouble with.

Better idea might be to make a video of what you're doing so that Customer Support/Service can see it and understand what you're doing. Lots of guys here would be happy to help if you did that too.

Got a friend with a digital camera or smart phone? Usually those will make videos.

Andy. Forgot to mention I have had this Dx7 from new, I would think I would have a rough idea how to bind it by now.

Regards

A couple ideas, but you probably already checked them:

1) Bad bind plug? If it's not making good contact that would be a problem.

2) Battery plugged in backwards? Sometimes this will get the LED blinking but it won't be able to complete the bind.

3) Bind plug in the wrong hole? (Usually this only happens with 2-row receivers).

Oh, that makes me wonder. Are the receivers blinking properly in bind mode?

Does the ESC ever make the beeps indicating the cell count of the batteries?
If not calibrate the ESC or run the throttle trim down to see if that does it.
What beeps do you here when the flight battery is connected?

Normally it's 3 beeps, but I have noticed on one of the rcs that when it's binding the flashing light does not seem very bright,don't know whether as any bearing on the problem.

Yes, that would be a good indication that it is not powered properly.

Andy,Took delivery of the DX 9 today,was getting on with it pretty well tonight,but have you any idea how to register it,I have spent the best of 3 hours trying to figure out you do it,which is the serial number the one on the top,or is it the whole lot of them in the radio under serial number.

Go to the Serial Number screen. You can get there by select System Settings. Click NEXT several times.

Put an SD card in the radio. Highlight the word EXPORT and click.

That writes a file to the card. Pull the card out, put it in your PC. Open the file My_DX9.xml using Notepad. Highlight and Copy (Ctrl C) the section that matches the serial number on the display.

On your Community page, paste that serial into the web.
