Default Receiver Help

New to all of this and just need someone's help... plz .

i have a JR 135 40mhz receiver. but it doesn't appear to want to work. i've used the on/off switch and plugged the battery pack in directly, but it doesn't want to go.
my battery setup is 2x2, but i don't think this should make a difference.

i tested the battery out on my plane and works fine (diff receiver, diff transmitter), then i plugged in a channel, battery and used the car transmitter, but nothing happened..

so i've tested this out with stock JR servo's (analogue) and a brand new digital servo and nothing.

Would it be fair to say my receiver is dead, or could it be the crystal, or transmitter.

thanks

Did the receiver come with the radio as a set or did you pick up the receiver individually?


Are you in the US? 40 mhz is not allowed in the US (technically) and more than likely your transmitter is not on 40 mhz which will make them in compatible.

Either way need a little more info. What transmitter and what frequency is it on?

Just make sure you put in right 40MHz band crystal. Something like 40.xxMHz on both your Tx and Rx. And the "-" on the rx batt should be located on the outside of the rx case. You can check online on this too. If still same mean your rx might be bad.
