    Unhappy HELP! TQi died when iPod was pugged in.

    Hey guys i have a revo 3.3 for a couple years now and it has been working somewhat fine except with a couple regular wearing. But i have used an iPod 4th generation with my TQi remote and it would work perfectly until yesterday i powered everything on and plugged in my iPod when i noticed my TQi light turned off and I've never been able to turn it back on since then! :/ Can someone please help me find a solution because sending it to repair is sadly not an option.

    BTW i already tried changing the batteries, unplugging and reconnecting the battery slot and tried reseting it... Nothing happens!! Help!

    just call traxxas and then you will send it to them to get repaired. its a stupidly common problem i have had aswell. there is many problems with the tqi that is just mearly ONE of them... EL Sob has been through 5 tqi controllers (ipod dock) and has had multiple crashs, loss of signal, and trouble witht he tqi, he was so fed up he sold the last ones after he got it back from traxxas.

    Mine died after being used and I contacted traxxas and they said sorry you live to far away for warranty (UK). It was less than six months old. Not brought in the UK.

    If they can sell it, they can warranty it. That's what I would tell them. No where on their warranty slips does it say "EXCLUDES UK OWNERS"
