Default Anyone into rc racing, that could help me with an esc problem?

I bought a used castle esc and 4 pole motor from a guy at local track yesterday. Tested last night and everything worked. This morning, I topped off my lipo pack and went to tear up my backyard. When I turned on the esc, it no longer beeped at all, and all I have is a solid red light. light does not change with throttle. My steering works, and I switched throttle/steering channels to make sure the channel was good. What could my problem be? Hoping this guy didn't sell me a faulty speed control..

Is that esc rated for your lipo power?

I did try to turn on the esc with the throttle held down, but nothing happened. I cant program this esc until I get the usb link cable. Im not sure exact model of esc, but I believe it's a sidewinder sv2. the motor is a 4 pole 1410-1y.

I just tried to calibrate following those instructions. I tried with my fully charged lipo, and my nimh pack. Both times, I got no beeping at all, and only a dim red light on the esc. Im charging my nimh battery now. Im guessing it was at about 75% charge.
