    Tq 2.4 transmitter flashing green/red. Can't get menu tree

    I had thought I red somewhere someone was having these symptoms.

    New batteries. Turn on transmitter and red blinking light.

    Can't get it to factory reset. Hold menu and set and and no lights. Push set and get solid green light. Works for throttle and steering but steering is reversed. Can't get to menu tree to fix it. Called traxxas. One guy says new batteries and another said I need a new radio.

    Any ideas?

    Which TQ 2.4?
    All Traxxas radios are "TQ" and 2.4 only eliminates half of them. There should be a part number on it somewhere.
    Whatever it is I just typed... could be wrong.

    It's the black one. With the stubby antennae. Sorry should have stated that. Every time I can get it to do the same thing. Red flashing to green red to green.

    2238 I assume?

    Have you have gone through and checked the antenna internally within the remote itself?

    If that is not it, I wonder if trying to hack it will reset it manually... it would be worth a shot anyway.

    My above post still applies... 2238 is a 2 channel.

    The antenna is fine. I am now wondering if one of the buttons is messed up. Either set is on all the time or menu doesn't work

    Did you see anything awry when you opened it up?

    No it looked great inside. Had it down at the beach so thought it could have gotten wet. No signs of being wet anywhere. Kinda sucks. Can get it to go to green light every time using the menu and set like factory reset and using set button. But the steering is reversed and still can't get menu tree. I am on vacation now but when I get home I will dig in to it more

    Have you tried the steps I laid out in post 4?
    I know it is probably buried in there... but I did a step by step that has worked for me 4-5 times on different radios.

    I didn't see anywhere in the post that would reset it manually?

    Do the channel mod steps. That is a manual reset.
