Default Koby 40 - no tones on power-up

Hey fellas - can't get my new Koby 40 to emit tones when starting up. I am convinced my setup is correct.

Miini Vbar
ESC to Rx B port
Connected to motor (also tried with no motor connection - no error code blink)
Vbar is otherwise processing signals correctly
Tx set up per the instructions

I get a solid red light

I tried reversing throttle channel - no change
I tried reducing Trav Adj and Increasing Trav Adj - no change

Tried pressing button - no response.

Any suggestions?

Thanks for the suggestion. I tried your first suggestion. No change. Only thing I have is BEC output coming from the Koby. Servos function corrrectly. Push button does nothing. Tried reversing switch on Tx - no change. No ideas on my end. Never had this with Jives on Vbar.

Only other thought I had is to plug it into another Vbar setup with it's motor and attempt to program on another Vbar and see if it works or not.

Post your v bar file and what is your radio settings....and the negative faces up toward the mini v ? that should work, but try another port.
