Help!

R9M-lite module stopped working with Xlite Pro


Evening (here anyways). I've been having issues with a R9M-lite module on my Xlite Pro. I got the module earlier this week, and had no problems yesterday having it register & bind. I let it charge overnight through USB, and today, the external module refuses to power on. I've read other places about some PMU issues that are happening with the xlites, but they seem to be related to the module not staying powered on after boot, rather than not powering on at all. The module doesn't show up in the model info screen, like the transmitter doesn't even recognize that it's been attached. I've tried all the firmware versions (including the PMU and internal TX updates) released for the TX so far, and none have made a difference. As far as I can tell, the only thing that's changed between today and yesterday was the charge on USB overnight (which may be completely unrelated). Thoughts?

The transmitter doesn't "recognize that it's been attached", YOU tell it that you have one in there with the external module type in the model settings.

Yep, I have that configured. It was working Friday, and wasn't on Saturday. Configuration hasn't changed.

Check the connector on the R9M and make sure it is seated correctly in the case. The top end can snap out of the holder and then the connector will not connect correctly with the Pro.

Thanks, but I checked, and can confirm that the 8 pin connector is seated correctly.

After some back and forth with Horus and FrSky, they think the module is bad, and I've RMA'd it back to them.
