help i biked my x7

Post by motodr441 » Fri Jan 08, 2021 10:33 am

i trayde flashing new firmware on x7 i think i flushed the wrong firmware and it only makes a click sound when i try power it on
i tried j.b's tutorial and it didn't work (allso without the buttry ) wane i go to write the new firmware it tells my old firmware not compatible with new.
wane i read the firmware i get a currpaed one that's 2.3.0RC5 (38931d9c)
any way to save this ? can i use a stm32 programmer to completely lashe clean my chip ?
thnks

If you power the Tx on holding the two horizontal trims towards the centre, do you get the bootloader?
If not, then try connecting the USB with the radio powered off, do you get a device appearing on the PC called a STMbootloader?

slight update there was no 3.3v the 5v smd regulator wase dead so i took it out a tested it it gave 1.65v hooked up a external
5v instead now i have 3.3v but nothing else works and the speaker click is now only when i plug a buttery so i think i need a new radio
or new stm32 and bunche of parts lining into a new radio

Another one bites the dust. These radios seem to be really bad. :(

I have one here from a friend that failed in a similar way as yours. it was powered by a 2S battery.
Not a very good design I guess :(
