FrSky S6R will not go in bind mode


Hello all!

My S6R gives me a solid green light when powered on with the failsafe button pressed. When just powered a blinking red light.

I'm not able to bind this thing...

I have a Taranis with international firmware, although I live in Europe. I flashed the receiver several times (international version), but I don't know if that was what it needed. Also I don't get the simultanious red and green as in wrong match. I don't come that far because i don't get in bind mode with it...

Anybody who can help please?

Thanks in advance!!

Richard

Make sure you're using a fully charged pack when binding. I've had issues binding with low pack voltages

I bought a S6R with international firmware but I have an early Taranis X9D with the DH16V2 RF board and LBT firmware loaded. I tried flashing all the available EU-LBT firmwares but I was unable to bind with any off them.

I tried binding the S6R to a friend's LBT X9D-Plus and it bound instantly. So the S6R was OK.
I had S6R FW170217 (S6R_LBT_20170217.frk) loaded but it would not bind to the X9D.

The I remembered that I read somewhere that there is a bug and it will only bind to even numbered receivers. I changed the receiver number from 3 to 8 and to my surprise it bound instantly.

I hope this helps.

Hey Crash_Harry,

Thanks for your answer! I have a question for you: When you bring the S6R in binding mode, does the led flash red(and a constant green led)?
Because I have only the constant green LED...
This is the procedure I follow: Keep the faisafe button pressed while power on the receiver. Then the LED is just constant green... When I just power it on I get a red flashing LED...
How do you change the receiver number?

Thanks in advance!

Hi. I'm experiencing the same behavior (solid green led) when trying to bind. Were you able to fix it?
