Hitec Optic 6 2.4 Sport Problem

Today my Hitec Optic 6 2.4 Sport radio is acting funny. I Turn Tx on and then Rx on the plane, I get a connection beep from the tx and lights indicate a link. However all the servos shoot in one direction and stop, also the motor makes a few beeps i have never heard. No control surface or motor response. If i go into programing and adjust the Sub Trim of the servos, they respond to the adjustment but still no stick movement response. Also I believe most Program mixes etc... do work.

I have re-Binded the receivers and tried it on different airplanes and my Heli. same problem. Could this be a factor: When i plugged in my 7.2v lipo, I accidently plugged in the polarity backwards, turned it on, quickly turned it off, then fixed it, and thats when the problem started.

What can i do? is my radio fried? can i get a warrenty? Also i did not purchase this radio, i won it in a contest.


Thanks for the help

Daniel

Reverse polarity damage is instant, no second chances nor user fix.
After correcting connector and switching on, damage usually confirmed by both a higher voltage than pack in use
e.g. 2S Lipo will probably show 10.4 V on lieu of 8.1<8.4, and a weaker LCD screen display, especially when viewed at an angle.
