Default Turnigy Plush 10A ESC - throttle setting problem

I've been running this TURNIGY Plush 10 amp ESC on my lite Stryker for a few months without problems.

Today, though, it has the wrong throttle setting. It thinks the throttle is set 10-20% higher than it actually is. When I plug in the battery, the motor starts running.

The monitor on my DX7 shows the throttle is set at 0. I can run the digital trim on the throttle all the way down and the motor just twitches, but I can't turn it all the way off.

The ESC's interpretation of the throttle position has been reset, somehow, so that 0% is read as 10% or so. No amount of unplugging the battery, turning the Tx on/off, etc. etc. makes any difference.

The ESC documentation makes no mention of a throttle setting.

Any thoughts?

Chellie, that did the trick! Thanks so much, Ma'am. Didn't occur to me to plug the battery in at full throttle.
