You need to put the radio in idle-up, with a pitch curve that is zero at half-collective. Set the collective at exactly half travel (center the left stick, trim all the way down).
Then turn on the heli (motor unplugged!), the head should go to zero pitch. If it doesn't, correct this first by turning all three of the swash servo links in or out equally. Then you probably will have your full negative travel when you lower the collective in idle-up.
In normal flight mode you shouldn't be able to get any more than a degree or so negative pitch, or whatever the handbook specifies, usually 0 or -1 or so.
