    Your Phantom is not turning on and off. It's your battery that's turning on and off. It appears the boot process of the Phantom is failing. But it also might be a bad battery.

    It looks like you disconnected your GPS module. My understanding is the Phantom will not boot up unless it has a good GPS module.

    What happens when you remove the battery and try to turn the battery on?

    So the battery is good and the boot process is failing on the Phantom.

    Can you give us a recent history of the patient?

    I've changed the chassis and the ESC to the new version 2.1.
    I think the first time I connected the pins from USB to pin M1-M4 of Naza.

    Could this error has burned naza?

    Thanks for all!

    It doesn't appear you are turning the battery on correctly. It appears your thumb never leaves the battery button.

    To turn the battery on:

    1. Press the power button and then immediately release the button completely.

    2. Quickly push the power button again but this time hold for three seconds.

    3. Release the button completely.
