My Bartech turns on and is powered through my sled. The only problem I seem to be having is the that the bartech seems to heat up and the motor isn't responding at all. And everything is plugged in to where it is suppose to go. The light on the receiver turns on and the lights work as they are suppose to. When I got to calibrater it I am getting little to no response with the motor. I'm not sure what is the problem. It's an analog system.

 

Thanks Matt

But it sounds like someone plugged into the wrong Lemo and burnt out your RF module.

Found out I had a fried motor chip. So it was able to be looked at and it was replaced. Thanks everyone.

What caused the problem? Was a cable wired backward, or was it a fluke?

Not really sure to be honest Alan. Though I figure something was wrong with my receiver when the motor wasn't responding. I'm glad Jim was able to replace the motor chip.
