Vtx dropouts

Hello. I have recently got the dji550 hex running eagle tree vector. I got it second hand off eBay so didn't build it myself.
I am using a brand new 3s 3000 mah but as soon as I give any power my video signal drops out until I start to hover? I will be running 2 3s 3000mah batteries in parallel soon but is there a way I can power my vtx on its own and still have the osd display? I tried last night but it wouldn't work :/ I'm used to race quads do all the vector stuff is new to me. My vtx is a 600mw immersion RC.
Thank you

Get a lipo tester and check that 3S3300, sounds like its sagging under load.

With a DJI550 you really need to be running 4S5000mah packs.

That's what I was thinking. Not enough power. I had the same issue in one of my race quads. I'm going to convert the vector to the f450 and run 3s in parallel so hopefully having 6000mah will help with less motors.
