Default 5065MG problem with AR7200BX

I was running through the setup of the BX when it just shut off. I thought my battery went bad so I plugged in another, same thing no power. While troubleshooting I unplugged all the servos, and then plugged them in one at a time. I found out that when the elevator servo is plugged in it shuts off the rx. It does matter if you plug it into the aux1, rudder, aileron or elevator, it just shuts off. Does this mean I have short in the servo wiring? Bad connection? I'm more of a mechanical person, that electronics. Any help would be great.

Yes, you either have a short, motor jammed or board is corrupted.

I just had the EXACT same thing happen... then the servo smoked!!! hopefully just the servo and not the brand new AR7200...
