X9D - Stuttering Noise and no startup

Post by JThibaut » Sun Apr 14, 2019 5:11 pm

When i tried to switch on my X9D, all I got is flashing of the screen with some ‘stuttering’ noise, but Taranis Will not start up. See attached video.

Stuttering startup

When starting up in resetmode, screen works normal. When I exit, noise begins Alain.
I tried disconnecting battery and the module in backboard but no help there.
Suggestions?

Has this just starting to happen, or have you done any firmware updates?

Just like that. (Have to say I bought it second hand). Worked for two days and then gave me this when I started it up the third time.

Make sure your SD card located in the battery compartment is fitted properly...

Might be worth trying to reflash the firmware.

Seems there is not enough space on SD card. Will have to buy bigger one for that...

Take the SD card from the Taranis. Backup the card content on your computer.

Read and follow the procedure here

A 1GB SD card is totally sufficient for use.

Uh no, it's impossible to find a card too small. Card might be corrupted, or filled with logs you could delete.

Also did the complete Oscar Liang works (Open tx), but also no help there. Something else broken?

Yeah, really sounds like there's a hardware fault.

But isn’t it strange then that the screen works perfectly on the set-up screens? (I used them to flash it).
Could TX module cause this?

You could try flashing ersky9x and see if that is any different.

Can find ersky9x here: (http://www.er9x.com/).
I use ersky9x on my Taranis and like it a lot.
Er9x on 9x radio, with Smartieparts Programmer and TelemetrEZ Board.
ErSky9x on Taranis, Sky9x, 9Xtreme radios.

This happened to my X9D SE. Sent it to Aloft, and they replaced the mainboard, after I tried most of the fixes listed above.

I'm thinking it must be some kind of a hardware problem. Curious to hear if board replace helped out...
