Default Help W/ ESC

I have a powerpulse dynamite esc that has lost its breaks and reverse. It goes forward just fine but no more brakes. I adjusted the 2 little screws hoping for a solution but nope I know that its not my radio cause I tried a different one... am i just done with this esc or can I fix it somehow?

Sorry to say, but it sounds like the brake/reverse FET's are turned into smoke.

However, to localize the problem, try move the servo plug into the ESC plug on the RX. If the servo works fine, it's quite sure your ESC is gone...

If you haven't already, try starting from scratch and going through the set-up proceedure again. I have seen certain ESC's lose their program at times (????) and need to be reprogramed to work properly.

I'm gonna go with Cole on this one. I had the same thing happen to a couple of Tekins back in the day. It's unfortunate...
