maybe you wired it up wrong could be wired to the second plug not the first? there are two ports instead of the one on the back of the 18 button. its also very possible the unit was defective. i did look into this swap myself, but not very sure what was required to be done, i just gave up after i found out it wasnt a direct swap.

on a side note... anyone got a 11 button going for cash?

the lines on mine are pretty fucked and i tried the fix on pelican to provide extra pressure to the connector strip but still no luck... i think oxygen or water got into the lcd connection strip and oxidized the contacts.. i hate pcb's with conection strips.
