Default fried radio????

I accidentially plugged the wrong charger into my 652 transmitter, the fuse did not blow. The next morning i turned the radio on and of course nothing. The battery polarity was reversed, that was easy to fix, fast charged the battery and plugged it into thetransmitter and still nothing..Also tried a different battery and still nothing... I guess i have a boat anchor now......Andrew

It sounds like your transmitter was damaged from the reverse polarity. To get it fixed up generally runs from $40 to $50, but does vary somewhat due to the nature of the damage. Fill out this form when sending your system in. http://horizon.hobbyshopnow.com/medi...rchecklist.pdf
