Turnigy 9XR Pro Hang Up intermittently.....

Post by LazyB » Sun Mar 10, 2019 3:13 am

Guys.....Turnigy 9XR PRO LCD display freeze intermittently.........some times it hang after 18 minutes, sometimes 25 minutes, or 80 minutes.

When the LCD display freeze up.......the gimbal stick can control the servo, Trim button also working, I can feel the vibrating motor vibrate on center trim.

On the test versions thread is a special test version that uses logical switch LO (the last one) to reset the display.
Configure LO so it becomes ON when you have a physical switch ON, something like:
LO AND ELE ELE

See if when you get a freeze, this recovers the display.

Joao, Thanks for the link, I was able to download the 9xr pro schematic diagram.

Have notice there is a common I/O pin from the main controller that control the LCD display and Audio Amplifier .......the LCD CS and LCD WR , (this is LCD chip select and write ) this 2 pin is connected thru a resistor to a Shut Down pin of Audio Amplifier........

This is the reason there is No Audio when the LCD Display is Freeze......

It could be a software or hardware problem.........

Hope somebody can just Turn On their Turnigy 9XR Pro for more than 2 hour and see the result........

I do apologize, I did say that I would do it but I still didn't have time :(
Will try to charge my radio's battery tomorrow and leave it on for a couple hours..

Probably too obvious but, have you tried to (carefully) disconnected and reinsert the flat wire that connects the LCD ?

LCD-WR and LCD-CS1 are not actually connected to the LCD, the connections to the LCD are connected to ground.
Please try the test version I posted, set up LO to be able to reset the display and see if the display recovers.
If it does, I can add some debug we may then use to investigate the loss of audio.

My 'PRO has been running for 63 minutes (just sitting on the bench) with no problem so far. I only have a 7.2V 800mAH battery in it so the test may have to stop when the battery goes flat!

What about if you remove the SD Card? Do you still see the same problem?

Wouldn't i be an idea to power down the radio when you have Inactivity timeouts and low battery warning?

After a recharge, I ran my 'PRO for 2 hours with no problems.

In the alarms menu you may change the time to the inactivity alarm to uo to 120 minutes, and also change the volume setting for that alarm, so you may delay the alarm and make it quieter.

I actually love the alarm . Just giving you a hard time . I had trouble with 2 of my sd cards that made the display do crazy things. One on a pro and 2 days ago on my x9dp . I wonder if that could be his problem . jhsa asked him about it earlier . Just a thought

If you get the hangup, does the test version of the firmware I've posted allow you to get the display working again?

Mike, have not yet tested on the test version firmware...........but look like have found the cause of hang up.

This time I removed the Micro SD card as suggest by Joao, this Micro SD card is just a Cheap No Brand just got it free from cheap camera drone.........I feel this might be causing the Hang Up.

OK, This morning I turned on the 9XR Pro, after 10 minutes now I can hear the irritating Beep sound , need to move the stick to keep it silent........then after 10 minutes again hear the Beep again.......need to move the stick again...........I never heard this Irritating Beep sound on the previus test with Micro Sd card install............now been for more than 99 minutes and it still running well.............now the timer loop back to 0 again.............

Still counting..............will just keep it on ........let you know further update............

THANKS to all of you........you are all very help full.

It looks like you found the problem, well done :)
I did say that you would have better help here ;)
By the way, without the SD Card you will get only beeps. The irritating beeps you hear is the inactivity alarm, in your case it might be set to about 10 minutes. It will warn you if you forgot the radio ON. Very useful if using a Lithium battery to power the radio. If a voice file named INACTV.wav is in the SD Card "voice/system" folder, it will be played instead.. If you don't have it, just make a file with some annoying siren, give it the name above, and place it in the correct folder.

Glad you got it working . On both of my bad cards I was able to just copy the cards onto a new card and it worked fine .I don't know if that is the best way or not . You might be copying a problem file .It might be best to build a new card file structure . Mike or Joao will know the best way to do it .

Allen, Yes.......That I would do.....cause thats the easies thing to do.........this is the first thing I will do.

If it hang up again. Then will have to download all the file.

My Turnigy still On since this morning ..... its already passed 1pm.....still counting.....its 241 minutes ..... 100 + 100 + 41 minutes.............

Look like the issue is really in the Cheap microSD card.........so lesson learn.....do not use those cheap MicroSD card.

Which country are you in? I'm wondering if I could (cheaply) have the bad SD card so I could investigate what hangs up.

Out of 4 radios 2 had bad cards .They were the original cards . I replaced with class 10 and all is great. I don't know if that made a difference but they work .

Guys......I got a Branded Sandisk 16 GB microSD card from my Raspberry Pie.........the MicroSD is perfectly working on Raspberry pie, I did not format it.

Then I turn On the 9XR Pro.......it works for more than 80 minutes .......it Did not Hand Up, but the Irritating Beep did not activate.....



I am just wondering if there is an Option in this 9XR pro. to automatically log a files, say Write the Date and Time upon the Transmitter is On and also log a files upon powering off........

I know there is an option for logging a Telemetry data files, but have not try it yet.........
