Are any of the cameras on Unit code 1?
Put a light in the TM751s outlet and see if it goes on and off when the camera on unit 1 is turned on and off.
If it does you may have a power line signal problem to the cameras supply.
If the TM751 does not go on and off. The RF signal from the firecracker may not be reaching it. Try it in a different outlet.

The disconnecting the camera that does not cycle is also a good thing to test. Actually maybe connect one camera at a time and see if you can control then individually. That may help determine if it is a power line problem

If the TM751 is going on and off. It does sound like the RF is getting to it from the sender.

Unplug all the camera supplies.
You should then have no video on the receiver.
Plug 1 camera  in and by default it should be on and you see video.
Send the off command for that cameras address. If it does not turn off then it is not seeing the powerline signal. If it goes off try back on again by computer command.
Do this with each camera by itself and make notes to if each goes off when told to.
