    Why are you starting the P2 without the controller on?
    Do the lights flash normally when you start properly, i.e., with the controller/extender turned on first?

    I'm guessing you hooked up the P2V+ to a computer and checked the DJI Vision Assistant, and found nothing out of the ordinary?

    Yes nothing found. I am thinking repair would be almost the price of a new one?

    I would order an ESC from Amazon or Ebay, and swap it out. It may save you a bundle. They run around $19. It will require 5 solder joints. Take a picture of it before you start so you can put it back the same way.
    Good luck.

    Might consider flattening and reloading the software in the naza before buying a ESC unit.

    The ESC board has the LED's in it, so you only have to replace that one ESC board that isn't working.

    When you boot up your bird, you're supposed to see RED GREEN YELLOW RED GREEN YELLOW. This would indicate a proper boot up.

    That never happens on your boot up which tells me something is fundamentally wrong with your system.
