Hi I have a new E-maxx only 1 week old. It has been working beautifully, today I was driving it around and took it over a jump. It landed fine but the power cut out and now won't turn back on. No lights, no musical notes, no fan, no nothing?
Can you tell me what this could be.
1). Pull your motor, and spin the gear with your fingers to make sure it spins and feels right. Then...
2). Check your battery, the battery connections, and the (on/off) switch to see if they are are all good with a volt meter at ESC Black & Red wire solder joints on your ESC, if no voltage...you have a power problem. If good then...
3). Pull the ESC plug out of your receivers' Channel 2 port, plug in a 5vdc battery pack in the receivers' Battery port, plug in a servo in your receivers' Channel 2 port, and see if all three of your servo's work with your transmitter...if not, you have a receiver problem. If so...
3). You have a bad ESC.

Thanks I have tried most of that but will check it al with a volt meter.
Ditto on what ReglarDude said (great tips!). I would like to add one thing: It's possible your switch got some fine dust in it preventing your ESC from turning it on.
I've been sus on the the switch. It seems like its stopped working.. Not that it's been acting up but through process of elimination it just seems that way...
Your most welcome Toad. Thanks Gaigin. Over the years, I've had my switch act up, so what I do is clean it with a silicon based electronic component cleaner ever now and again.
Remove the switch altogether. Solder the leads together. Problem solved!

You're right, but I like having the switch.
I've had the same swicth for 5 years with no problems. When it starts to feel a little stiff, I give it a shot of spray...and wallah. It's back to normal.
