My 10X Transmitter needs a new "touch screen". JR Service and Radio South do not have screens for this model. Does anyone out there know of another service center that can possibly help with this problem, short of sending to JR Japan. Thanks!

Email JR Japan and see if such a thing even exists in stock. Surely they will send it to the USA service center.

OR try the UK JR service center:

If that falls through you could hunt the forums for a 10x for sale in excellent condition and swap it out. Most can be had for $150-$200 nowadays.

To all that replied, I say thanks for the advice. However, LaDon hit it out of the park. I called Horizon Hobbies and was told they have the part. Send it in and they will repair it. I thought that Horizon would have transferred their repair parts to JR America. Who would have ever guessed. Thanks again!

The reason they don't is because JR Americas does not work on the radios with the spektrum protocol. That is horizons deal. Jr Americas only works on the newer radios with the dmss protocol

Oh I see. By "JR Service" you did not mean Horizon ! Get some new pots while you are at it. Now why in hell didn't they tell you to call Horizon ?

Four Stroker: I called "JR Service" at "JR America" and they told me they didn't service those older radios and suggested I buy a newer one. Sorry, I didn't make that clear to begin with. They never mentioned Horizon Service or I wouldn't have contacted Radio South to do the work. I think we all learned from my experience. Thanks again.

Any Jr radio that is the older ones that fly on spektrum is serviced by horizon hobbies. Any of the xg radios and the 28x is serviced by JR Americas.

Well I guess I would ask them for an estimate and evaluate whether it was worth it. I retired my 9VHP of the same vintage and there was nothing wrong with it.

That is a good point too. That is what I would do is get an estimate on it. Then do some penciling. Right now JR has a deal where if you buy a radio you get 2 free recievers. So I. The end you would get three receivers. Either that or you can trade that radio in but you can't use both promos. I don't think you would get enough out of the trade to offset the reciever deal.
