Hi Steven I have exactly the same problem target doesn't answer only I have followed the instructions to the letter and have the jumper cable installed. I have been playing around that much thinking it was a bad connection I decided to bypass the pogo pins and hard wired the connections instead. I have sent an e-mail to your website but with it being the weekend you probably won't see it until Monday. Any other suggestions would be brilliant.

[assuming you have the Rev 2.4] If you look closely between the two right-most 6-pin white connectors, I'd bet you would see evidence of burning.

Those two connectors are basically a "mirror" of each other. So the "outside" pins are connected together, then the next ones, and so on. To put it another way, if you assume they are numbered 1 through 6 from left to right, then its like this:

pin 1 on the left connector connects to pin 6 on the right
pin 2 to pin 5
pin 3 to pin 4
pin 4 to pin 3
pin 6 to pin 1

Using a multimeter, you can figure out which pair is broken and solder a small wire to re-connect them. Its probably 2/5.

- Steven

ps. You can thank the SP board for the fact your "radio still works without it though". That burned trace acted as a fuse, protecting your main board from certain (but repairable) death.

Hello, I've just installed the Backlight from HK for the Turnigy 9x, but when the radio is turned OFF, the backlight keeps flashing on and off. So when turned ON 100% up, it is all OK, when turned OFF 100% down, backlight flashes!, and if I just push the button up 10% it stops flashing. Any idea? Shorting on the backlight? Any fixes?

Err... that should be kinda impossible. With the radio OFF there should be no battery power to make anything flash. So I'd say your problem is with your physical on/off switch.

Received my V2.4 board yesterday, 6 days delivery to UK, nice.

All in good condition, just need to wait for my new FlySky 9x to turn up.

Could have used the 2.1? with EL from my other 9X but that is still going strong so got the updated board for the new one.

I got my v2.4 today, very easy to install on my turnigy 9x, I installed the drivers and then I connected the USB cable, it worked..
UNTIL I touched the mini USB on the transmiter (I was tring to acomodate it in the case) and i think I shorted something with my fingers because I heard a bit like electricity on the speakers and at the same time windows gives me an error about device disconected and stops recognizing the hardware.
I keep trying connecting the transmiter in 3 diferent computers and using 4 or 5 different USB cables, but windows doesnt show even a message about new hardware found, as it did the first time... maybe I burned the board or the miniUSB port? I'd apreciate any help!

ok, the board is fine! It was just that I damaged the cables on the back of the microusb and they were not making proper contact.
And I just flashed openTx
