did you plug the rx wire in backwards? is the external leads plugged all the way in? just running through things it could be


novak gtb problem seems to be a redundant statement...

NIB,

The propability of you having 3 speedo's in row not working coming right from Novak is highly unlikely... Keep in mind that they are all tested before they are sent out...

You must be doing something wrong. Make sure that the black wire is facing the oustside of the receiver when you plug it in. It will plug in backward perfectly fine but then you will have no power.

I would call Novak and talk to a tech or utalize the Steve Wiess thread with RCtech.

If you have had that bad of luck with them, I would suggest looking at a different brand.
I personally, have had no problems with anything Novak, so I believe that it could be something that your doing on your end. good luck
