Happy new toy (ermm Advanced Recreational Equipment) I thought ...
Opened it up this morning, put it on charge, come to try it this evening and PROBLEMS.
Powered up OK, showing 11.3Volts.
Bind to mCX OK, controls working.
Enter System Setup, Scroll and Adjust buttons sluggish, no repeat on holding button in.
I try a simple test "Model Name" I go for "mCX", 1st character goes in sloooowly, have to press button more than once just to get character to change. 2nd character goes in even slower. 3rd character system freezes before I can get to "X"
Other menu items become impossible to access once it grinds to a halt.
Oddly the Tx flies the mCX OK it just won't allow system changes.
I managed to get it change to Model 2 and bind my mSR.
Same problems with name, flies OK
I found that disconnecting the battery for 30 secs then reconnecting gave me a short space of time where System changes would work, still no key repeat. After that short time it freezes up again.
It's like some CMOS device in there holds enough charge to run a few operations but isn't being refreshed.
I've surfed for clues and it seems there's no factory/hard reset or anything that's accessible by the user.
Sure I found that System Diagnostic (YouTube et al) link but that looks way too dangerous to mess with (memory locations, Hex codes n stuff) and anyway my buttons aren't working so I wouldn't be able to get in there if I wanted to.
Contacting supplier in the morning.
Not a very auspicious start for my 1st day with a Spektrum Tx.
