Default i hate myself... burned my receiver

I was in the process of rebuilding my on road RC car... this was an old old school KO-propo EX2 receiver... and i burned it... CH2 is working but CH1 does not respond at all. Tried swapping servos.... adjusting the xmitter buttons... everything... it just doesn't work at all anymore.

now i have to dig the deepest holes of the earth to find this replacement. man!!! i hate it.

Yeah after this shenanigan, I hate you too.

Tough luck though mate, I've gone through a few esc's from swaping the pos and neg battery terminals so I know how it feels lol.

Make sure it is not the servo reversing switch, on the TRANSMITTER isn't stuck in between reverse and normal, no signal that way and wont work... if it's old school enough to have an actual switch....

Usually yes...I have been using 3rd party receiver for my old school Futaba FM, as long as their channel and frequency matched (the same)
