I just received the Turnigy 9X 9CH TX. I have over 10 volts at the battery box connector. But nothing responds when the power switch is in the on position. Has anyone had a similar problem?

Does the display screen light up or are you meaning that servos & receiver don't respond?

Bruce will probably be along soon to solve your problem.

Try jiggling the connector where the battery plugs in... I hardwired mine with a JST connector....

Every thing is dead. No screen.

Sounds like the juice is not getting to the PC board. Rip the back off and follow the power wires from the battery connector. Check the solder joints at the switch for dry joints & broken wires/connections. Follow the trail using a volt meter.

Waste of time worrying about warranty as it is not worth chasing up - just trace the problem yourself or get a mate with some electronic experience to do it for you.

Some people have brought the tx to life by simply tapping the battery holder which does not always allow good contacts due to holding batteries too tightly.

In your case the problem seems to be a bit further along the line. Check the connection terminals where battery pack lead plugs in. Reversed polarity? Won't be the first time battery packs have been wired wrong.
