Well

last evening i was getting ready to go to the field so charging my Nimh 2000mah 4 cell pack. pack was configured so it was connected to a rx switch (I just installed a used one in my plane) then a cable from switch goes to RX and third cable from switch i used to plug charger. before charging i switched off rx switch and then start charging.
when charging completed i unplug the charger, switch on tx and then rx switch. tried to move sticks to see control surfaces movement and amazed to know noting was working.

I pull out rx and there were no light glowing in RX, no static red light, no blinking red light... just nothing. but when i plug the power to rx servos initiated but not working with tx stick movement. Then i try to bind my rx. but after that even servo initialization also gone. it seems that when i plug power to RX after a few second or minute it seems to me a bit warmer.

I open the rx and could not see any burned component. what to do? is there any schematic diagram available? how to fix it ?

will Appreciate you help in this regards.

thanks

Zahid

Good time to upgrade it with a Frsky module and receiver :)

The Frsky system is a more secure link and the telemetry is real nice to have on a model, I use it to monitor the lipo voltages in real time.
There is also a good range of receivers from Frsky to choose from as well.
Sadly it sure sounds like your original receiver is dead .
The original Turnigy receiver is available at Hobbyking fairly cheaply, though if you want to stick with the original. :)

Or if you don't need 8 channels, you can also use the HobbyKing 6ch V2 receiver, or the 3ch one for delta wings. They're much smaller and lighter than the Turnigy one, and cheaper too.

Thanks guys... yes i learned the lesson should have multiple rx in hand, and also i will review and see if i also go for upgrade to frsky in future... firs will need to figure out how to cut the orignal turnigy module wire and make some kind of connection that can be plug and un plug while also could able to use frsky for my expensive models.

If you are handy and creative you can turn the turnigy module into a self contained unit like the frsky module is with the antenna attached to the module . Thats what I did but you need to be very skillfull at soldering to re attach the antenna cable to the module circuit board.
