Yes many moons ago, but you can only have one bound at a time right?

No.
A receiver can only be bound to one transmitter, but you can have as many receivers bound to a same transmitter.
Would be unmanageable if you had to rebind everytime you flew a different model.

You may be use to / confusing with Spektrum's "model match" system. That's a different thing and isn't available on older FrSky equipment. The new X series have something equivalent, but only when using a supporting radio.

The d8 bind once to tx and stay bound , as long as you use d8 mode on tx then that RX will always be connected no matter what model on tx you select.
It can catch you out if you are not vigilant in selecting correct model.
Never used a v series but I would think they are the same and should not lose bind by themselves.

Sounds like its processor has a faulty eeprom or possibly firmware corruption... they should never lose the bind even if unused for long periods. Personally I wouldnt fly it in that state, I would just keep it as a 'tester'

Could any of you please measure the voltage on the module pins(plugged) so at least I have a starting point?
Tx in advance

With the transmitter on you should see battery voltage between pins 3and 4 (counting from the top).

Pin 1 is the PPM signal and will show a lower voltage.

The raised plastic round the pins needs to be pretty much completely removed, not just "shaved" if the module is to fit flush with the back of the transmitter and click in place. The pins don't have much length engaging the sockets in the module, so it has to be right down in there. Take a good look for anything that might be preventing the module from seating properly.
