Please help. I think I damaged my fat shark's

Hi, I'm using a Fat Shark goggles that receive video from a Tx Airwaves 2,4Ghz 500mW A/V emitter. This emitter is connected to the output of a modem that modulates the GPS data to send it through an audio channel. The Fat Shark goggles are connected to a demodulator that is plugged to my laptop and where I receive the GPS data from the airplane. I was trying to test all the system and when I plugged the jack into the AV in/out connector from the googles, I received the GPS data but I couldn't see the camera any more. I proved everything but didn't work. I only see a grey light but still receiving GPS data. Is there a broken channel in the receiver on the googles? Can I change the channel and receive the image in the audio channel? I know that the Fat Shark receiver has 3 channels. Are they interchangable?

Its 99.9% the video Transmitter!

Double check, have you got another Video transmiter?

Oh my God, if it's the video transmitter you have just made me a present!! I haven't got any one more, but I desassembled the goggles and I thought I had to buy a new ones, and a transmitter is cheaper (it's not my plane ). I can hear the audio from the camera's phones (I disconnected the GPS data modem). Can I change any wire in the transmitter to sacrify the audio instead of the video?

By the way, I'm not sure it's the transmitter cause when I could see the video with the googles, I noticed a red led in the receiver inside them. Now that LED doesn't turn on, only a few milliseconds when I plug or unplug the goggles batteries.

The red LED only lights when the battery is low, which is why it only shows up
when you're plugging it in or out.

Thanks Ian, but I think It might be the receiver on the goggles. Now I can't hear any sound in any channel and no GPS data is received. It broke down definitely.

Quiksilver, why you said it was the transmitter?
