Help!
RV 900 mHz TX/RX, DX-201. PROBLEMS

Hey everyone,
I have not made my way to fvp, but just wanted to get some video from an Easystar. My setup is from RV. When I first got the equipment I hooked it up and everything was fine. I wanted to be a better flyer before I installed them on a plane. So the sat for a while in storage. Now I cannot get anything to work. All parts are 12v. I know the Tx can get warm (200mw) but the DX-201 also gets quite warm. I cannot get any video at all. I uses a 11.1 1000 mAh lipo with voltage regulated to 12v via demension engineering anyvolt micro. RCA and BNC connectors were removed and wired red to red yellow to yellow and black to black. I didn't hook up white for audio yet but I have a mic from RV. Any help as to what I have done wrong is greatly appreciated.

Can you snap a few pictures of the wires connecting? Is the equipment showing any signs of getting power?

Yes, the RX powers up with its lights, other than getting warm the Range video TX and DX-201 camera just get warm, no lights on them to indicate power. Put I did check voltages with a DVOM and there are voltages where they need to be. I will have to pull the equipment out for pictures later tonight. I had them soldered onto terminals using 3 wire JR cables and connectors. Then tried straight soldering with shrink wrap, still nothing. I was using a small LCD screen with a stereo type AV plug as the input, but I will try a B/W TV that has RCA inputs from the RX's RCA output. When I get the equipment out tonight. Thank you.
