Roy, did the transmitter get wet, as well as being left switched on? I assume it is fitted with non rechargeable batteries?

Well it's good you found great humour in my trying to help someone.............

Sarcsasm and misplaced wit is of great benefit to us all. There is of course the fact that my post may still be valid or helpful if someone needs a radio repair doing? Another post suggests that was indeed the case. Perhaps you didn't consider that? Like certain others on here, point scoring jibes seems to be a little side hobby of yours........

You are the only one who has descended to using sarcasm, Percy.
There is none in my post, why on earth do you think I would ever want to ?
You've overreacted to a gentle leg pull with a pompous attempt to justify a mistake that many of us have made at some time when replying to resurrected old posts.
When the mistake is realised after a leg pull most of us respond with - "Doh !! blush" or similar.

Let's get back to the problem reported by a forum new member - Roy asked why his Tx only worked on throttle cut after the battery was fully discharged.

I also fully discharged my 6EX 2.4 by leaving it switched on for a few days - mine recovered after a full charging session.  All memories and settings remained OK.   But I didn't remove the wired in nicad ( ni metal hydride probably ) so perhaps removing all power like Roy did needs some reset?

Had a chat with Mike Ridley who said he had not dealt with a programme corrupted transmitter before but seemed confident he could resolve the problem with my 2006 35 mhz 6EXA unit. We both discussed the fact that i might not use the transmitter again for flying but it could be used for my simulator control ?. He advised me to send only the transmitter without the internal battery so that's what I did today. Repair costs are likely to be £20 plus about £6.00 return postage costs.

Hopefully I have not high jacked Roy's original question , but it would appear he should contact Mike Ridley as was mentioned earlier. Last winter I removed the batteries from three other transmitters to avoid black wire corrosion. All programming was retained.

Same here I did not realise the topic originated 6 years ago. I have not heard from Mike Ridley since I sent my transmitter to him a few weeks ago, I wonder how he is getting on with it ?

I phoned Mike Ridley. and he confirmed that he had looked at my 2006 EXA transmitter and that a repair was unlikely to be achieved. He also confirmed that he was the only person probably country wide who is repairing transmitters so he is very busy and not looking for work !

Had a phone call from Mike Ridley this afternoon and he confirmed that with a second hand component he had managed to repair my transmitter. So thanks for the recommendation PV, and once I have the transmitter back it will be interesting to carry out some extensive range checks.

Mike did say that second hand 35 mhz transmitters are demand, and if so are people having problems with 2.4 Ghz gear.?
