HK SS 15-18 amp ESC stuck on reverse throttle range

I have a Hobby King Super Simple 15-18 amp ESC and I accidently set it up with reverse throttle set on the TX and I just can not get it to work with a normal throttle range. I've tried going through setup nothing works.

(Note: It's not the motor that's turning backwards)

So, you had the channel reverse set on the TX, and when the throttle is at max on the TX, the motor is stopped? Then, you changed the TX, and the throttle no longer works? Have you tried retraining the ESC by plugging it in with the throttle at max on the TX, then moving the throttle back to min?

It never stopped working....but i have been trying recalibrating the throttle range and since you have to have at max then move to min it dosent work. since I set it up. basically it work like if you set the throttle channel on you're tx on reverse mode

What transmiter are you using. You are saying with the throttle stick at max the motor is off and when you bring the stick down the motor runs. I had a problem with the throttle on the plane I am building that was driving me nuts till I unplugged the ESC from the receiver and plugged in a servo to see what was going on with just the servo. My problem turn out to be in my mixing of my throttle channel. If you can reverse the servo direction with the transmiter I would say it is a problem with the ESC, If servo won't reverse with transmiter it is Your transmiter. Good Luck Garry

It's a HK 4 channel TX and it is definitely the esc as it will work when the channel is set on reverse. I'm using it fora quadcopter project so it needs to be working the normal way.

That is why I said to plug a servo into throttle channel, with trans in normal will the servo still work
