Re: Frog Juicers - Light Loco Problem

Have you considered using decoders with built-in stay alive functionality such as the TCS KAM4?

Re: Using 2 Powercabs together

Kebang, I have just re-read one of your posts above. If I'm reading the post correctly then you MUST change things to have the No. 2 cab as the master - that's the one using version 1.65B firmware - connected using the flat cable. The other cab should be cab 3 and connected via the curly cable. Then...

Re: Using 2 Powercabs together

Keep the cab with version 1.65B as Cab 2. There were one or two issues with version 1.65, hence the release of 1.65B, but I'm not sure if assigning locos to cabs was one of them. It would probably pay to have both cabs using the same version of firmware, then you will have eliminated firmware as the...

Re: Using 2 Powercabs together

Are you using the Assign Cab to Loco function? If not, press SHIFT and 2 together, select the loco number to assign, press ENTER then the number of the cab to which you wish to assign the loco. If that doesn't work let me know the version of firmware you have installed in both cabs. I assume both ar...

Re: Unable to adjust start up speed on new hard wired Dcc lo

The problem you have might relate to the version of Bachmann decoder. See the link from https://clarahost.clara.net/www.bromsgr ... ion4mm.htm for 36-553 and 36-554 decoders.

Re: sb5 smart booster

It sounds tome as though you have a short circuit somewhere. To check this, disconnect the SB5 from the layout and just connect it to a separate piece of track. Switch on and see if the SB5 behaves as it should. If it doesn't then there is probably an issue with the SB5, assuming your connections ar...

Re: Point decoders

You might also consider the Team Digital SMD84. This can operate up to 8 point motors and you can mix solenoid and slow motion motors across the outputs, but only one type on any one output. It is also powered from the DCC track supply. I have a number of these on my developing layout and they are e...

Re: Power Cab Stack Size

In my defence I must point out on my original Power Cab, which was purchased just after the update, that the stack size was set to 6,straight out of the box, so I didn't realise it was adjustable... That's very strange as all new NCE ProCabs and PowerCabs I have come across have always had the reca...

Re: Powercab thumbwheel stiff

Very occasionally the thumbwheel seems a little out of line with the cradle, which is why it appears to bind. This can sometimes be remedied by adjusting the angle of the thumbwheel on the three prongs which are soldered to the main board.

Re: Powercab thumbwheel stiff

If the thumbwheel is working correctly but just stiff then: Remove the screws from the back of the PowerCab (not the very small one in the middle - this is for the battery enclosure). Lift the circuit board out and examine the thumbwheel. Sometimes it has just moved a little on the three prongs whic...

Re: Digitrax Sound Loader Software

Thanks for the prompt response. Yes I did, but it doesn't really say too much about using the software. At the moment the questions taxing me are: Can you upload a sound from a project to your PC? How do you re-assign sounds to different function buttons? Can I change the point at which the engine ...
