Long Beep and loses bind?

Post by farmertom » Wed May 08, 2013 7:38 pm

HI,
A new problem for me. I have a Turnigy 9xr radio with a OrangeRX DSM2 TX module trying to bind to a OrangeRX DSM2 RX. I have the power on to the RX and bind plug in, light is blinking on the RX. Turn on the radio with the bind button on the OrangeRX DSM2 TX module pushed. Radio boots up and a small beep. The RX light goes solid and the servos moves. Release the bind button. A few seconds later the radio gives a long beep and I see the light go out on the RX and I loose bind.
What am I doing wrong? What is the long beep? I have the battery fully charged. I get the same results with different RXs. Other radio bind with the RX module. What is wrong with my radio?
Thanks for any suggestion.

AFAIK the long beep is made by the OrangeRX module, not by the radio.

What RXs exactly? With some/most I think you should be putting the module in bind mode FIRST, and then power up the receiver with the bind plug installed.

To be more exact: I put the bind plug into the receiver(in the airplane) power up the receiver. Light blinks on receiver. Now I Hold down the binding button on the TX module (the radio) and turn on the radio.

What does the long beep from the OrangeRX TX module mean?

Another bit of info. I get three flashes from the green light on the back of the OrangeRX TX module. What is the meaning of the three flashes?
Thanks

As per the manual.....

I believe it is telling you the mode is selected when binding.

Thank you, I know RTFM! The green flashing light indicates that it is in OSMX working mode? Why does the module use that working mode when I try to bind to any DSM2 RX? When I bind the TX RX there is a short time I can control the servos (2-3 seconds). then there is the long beep and I lose bind. Any suggestion? this module had been working good until today.
thanks for your help :)

The answer might have been already posted above.. Did you read this? did you try it? ;)

Hi,
After thinking on this and RTFM I think this is a OrangeRX TX problem not a radio problem. Thanks for everyone's replies.

I am having this exact same problem. I've had no luck changing modes.
FarmerTom, were you able to get your TX module working?

Figured it out. The"change id" button was stuck in. I was able to pop it free and now all is well.
