Default JR XS3 issues

Hey y'all. I'm not a noob to radios and stuff, but I am to synthesized radios. I hooked everything up to my MR-4TC BD, servo in channel one, ESC in channel two, and nothing works. ESC powers up fine, but when I try to set it, it doesn't work. Also, I need to center my servo so I can put my horn on, but the steering doesn't work either. I've tried changing frequencies multiple times, and still no luck. Please help me out here. I need to get this thing set up for a possible RC drifting meet tomorrow in Northern California.

Do you have power getting to the receiver? I'm a nitro guy so i'm not sure how BEC works or is hooked up, but if you haven't tried the 4-cell battery harness and switch that goes to the Batt lead on the Rx, give that a shot.

I'm sure you already have, but make sure the Tx and Rx are on the same channel. Pick one that is easy to set on the rx, like 88, (assuming you have the 75Mhz version) then go into the system mode and set CH to 88.

Instructions from pg. 15 of the manual:
Synthesized Channel Select cont.
Accessing the TX Channel Select Function
1.Press the Scroll and Channel keys at the same time and
hold.
2.Turn the transmitter power switch on to enter System
mode.
3.Press the Scroll key until β€œCH” appears on the screen.
4.Press the Increase or Decrease key to select the desired
channel number 1–6 (27MHz) or 61–90 (75MHz).
5.Press the Scroll key to access the Model Name Entry
function.
6.To exit System mode, either turn the transmitter power
switch off or press the Scroll and Channel keys at the
same time.
Accessing the RS300 RX Channel Select
Determine the frequency band and channels available
marked next to the rotary dial matches the transmitter.
Set the channel on the RS300 receiver to match the XS3
transmitter by adjusting the ten position rotary switches
using a small 1/8” flat blade screwdriver until they point to
the corresponding channel numbers.
β€’ To set a 75MHz receiver to channel 78, rotate the first
rotary switch to the β€œ7” position and the second rotary
switch to the β€œ8” position.

You didn't say if you tried this so here goes.

Before you turn the radio on, hold scroll and channel down and turn on radio. it takes you to a different set of menu's.

It should be on model number screen press scroll untill you see the CH (channel )screen. there should be a number below the CH.

Adjust reciever to same number on screen.

turn off radio and turn on (no buttons) and try again.

Hope this helps
