reset turnigy with backlight.


[QUOTE=s_mack;16947797]I'm not sure what you mean by "constantly" but it is probably related to this problem. From what we can tell, some of the radios have a problem with their voltage regulators and can't handle the extra tiny draw for the EL backlight and it resets. There are some solutions suggested there. One thing to try (to confirm this is your problem)... plug the radio in with the USB and does the problem go away? Or at least it doesn't reboot as often? then go into the menu and turn OFF the light. Problem stops? If so, then you have the problem and should see the link above. If not, then it is something else... possibly a poor connection (but probably no if you were able to successfully flash the radio).


Hello,

I confirme with the cable usb (4,7 V) all is correct,no reboot.
Without the usb with the backlight ON, this is the reboot.
With the backlight OFF ,the radio work perfectly.
you were right perfectly.
Now, I will read the links with the solutions .
Have you a preference for a realization?
Still thank you for your assistance.

Greetings

Claude (sorry for my bad english)

A fix seems to be in the making. Keep in mind that this is not yet confirmed so you might want to hang back and wait to see the results:

Hello,
I have 22 or 27 Ohm, is very important 25 Ohm ?

Thanks

Not terribly important. Both should work.

hello,
Modification carried out with 27 ohm, all functions perfectly.
I am very happy and I thank you for your assistance.
I congratulate you for all work carried out.
Good happy new year.

And what about this fix, is it a better fix?

Steven states that this is a "more correct" fix.
Both work.

Its only "more correct" in that it does not involve any guesswork as to the value of the resistor... although, that "guess" is pretty darned good and quite a wide range is suitable. So really either is fine.

The resistor fix reduces the input voltage, which therefore reduces the ripple when the unit is turned off that's causing the voltage regulator headaches. The other fix virtually eliminates the ripple because the driver is never turned off - only the light itself is.

Resistor fix increases the amount of current (slightly) when the light is ON and decreases brightness ever so slightly. Other fix increases the amount of current EVER so slightly when the light is OFF (but we're talking extremely little) and brightness is unaffected.

I say do whichever is more convenient. Resistor is easier but involves a resistor that you may not have. Other fix requires no extra components but is slightly more difficult to perform.

Did you set the programmer to "usbasp" and the port to "usb"? Do you get any error messages?

Can you elaborate? Do you receive errors? What are you trying to do?
