Default did i kill something?

I have a streak 12 turn and up esc, dyna-sport battery packs, speed gems 2 14 turn motor, airtronics receiver and servo. whenever I plug everything up and turn it on the esc usually doesnt light up, but when it does the set-up button doesn't do anything (its supposed to make the led blink). I have tried tinkering with the channel 2 cable. I recently switched to red plug on all connections. Any help is wanted! Thank you!

sounds like something may have been damaged. Im not familiar with the speed controller but usually if it doesnt work right and you think you damaged something, you usually did. If its not still under warranty I would take it apart and look for any damage.
