Default Help - Receiver no power through

Hi all,

Last year I built myself an Mercedes Actros 4x2, which was subsequently sold. Recently I began building myself another one, which is the latest Actros 3363 6x4. However, I ran into some problems and wonder if anyone can offer me some guidance or advice.

The truck in question is Actros 3363, got myself MFC-03, 2 brand new Futaba S3003 servos, and a Futaba 4YWD radio which comes with an R214GF-E receiver. The radio and the receiver I used were the exact same ones I used for my truck last year, and they were only used only a handful of times for testing my first truck so I know they are in order, plus I had tested it recently on my RC touring cars and from that I know they work.

However, I have plugged everything in on my truck to the MFC-03 and the receiver, it seems there is no power going to the receiver, and that when the truck is powered on, several beeps go off before lights flash uncontrollably. Something is definitely wrong. I have tried unplugging and replugging everything back which led me to nowhere.

Just to give a better idea, I have recorded several videos.

Can anyone help me out and tell me what is wrong? What are the ways to fix this please?

Much appreciated!

To me, it looks like the MFC is drawing too much current from the receiver and it cannot power the MFC. Do you have a Glitch Buster or a BEC you could try with it?
