Re: Prodigy sounds stuck on

The new Prodigy 2 was delivered last evening. I hope i'm not speaking too soon, but this morning everything is fine. I have switched on and off a few times to check. I have even found the right buttons to press to stop the safety valve sound that wouldn't stop. Thank you all for your suggestions, ho...

Re: Prodigy sounds stuck on

Thanks Flashband and Dad-1. I only have one DCC sound fitted loco. My 08 shunter is still with Hornby for repair. I hope to get it back by Christmas... Checked everything again, and all ok. I could only use the program track, as there is still no volts on the main. By the end of yesterday, I had pac...

Re: Prodigy sounds stuck on

Hi Roger (RJ).

Would it be expecting a number between 0 and 128 for overall volume?
I can't do anything now, after pressing prog, I gave it address 8, but it is now 9, and cannot be changed.
Main track is still dead. This has to go back for a refund.

Re: Prodigy sounds stuck on

Hi Forfarian. Ironduke and mjb1961. Thanks for the ESU info, that is very useful. All sound off =F8. F8 is also the loco address, on mine F1 is steam sound off, or is this in program mode? This sound problem still will not go away. I have gone through programming to where it says CV. I press shift t...

Re: Prodigy sounds stuck on

Hi Flashbang. Thanks again. I seem to have a problem again. The loco is an Ajax supplied by Olivers Trains about two years ago. it's fitted with ESU sound and works very nicely. Now it will run, or sit on track, and I just have one sound repeating about every 30 seconds of, I think the safety valve....

Prodigy sounds stuck on

I have my nice new prodigy 2 working, but now I can't turn off he loco sounds. The manual is not the best, when it comes to explaining this. F1 switches steam sound on, and should turn it off. I tried other sounds including birds, and safety valve, but they don't want to stop... I don't know what i'...

Re: EZ Command problem - Pease Help

Hi Flashbang. It came back last evening. It had been tested, and worked fine. There is no explanation as to the strange behaviour. I plugged it in, and it worked. It is still fine this morning, so I will call it a “digital hiccup.” I hope it continues, because it makes you lose trust in something, w...

Re: EZ Command problem - Pease Help

Hi End2end. You are correct, I remember seeing that screen now. There is obviously a strange fault with it. The tracks changed overnight, and I think this will be a manufacturing repair. It was picked up last night, and will be looked at this morning, but I don't have much hope of seeing it this sid...

Re: EZ Command problem - Pease Help

Hi End2end. It's back in the box, so I can't check. But that would make sense. When I first switched on, should it automatically have been in main track mode then. But there was no volts on the track. The manual says the program track is un-powered, and decoders can only be programmed and read but n...

Re: EZ Command problem - Pease Help

Hi Flashbang Thanks for your reply. A bit of a mystery this morning, as no loco running when left connected to the program track overnight. There is also no volts present either. However there is now 13 volts on the main track, and the loco is running ok. So the unit is faulty. The layout wiring is ...

Re: EZ Command problem - Pease Help

I decided to buy a new controller. I had looked at the prodigy versions, and thought the Express would be best for me. Everywhere seems to be out of stock, so I e-mailed my local shop, Great Eastern Models. They only had the Prodigy 2 at a discount price. I thought about it, and my bank manager said...

Re: EZ Command problem - Pease Help

Hi End2end. Thanks for your message, but I am going to get something else. All points are electrofrog. All track droppers are correct, also cables. I have been able to use the layout previous to this controller fault. The PSU was returned with the unit, as requested by Bachmann. No. 10 is to control...

Re: EZ Command problem - Pease Help

Hi Bigmet.

I can't get as far as that. The red LED is the stop LED. It lights when there is a short, or points are set wrong. It's also used in setting a new address, but nothing works, so I can't do anything.

Hi End2end.

A test meter shows no shorts, and the fault is there, when not connected to any track. I am probably the only one with this fault...

Re: EZ Command problem - Pease Help

Hi Flashbang. Thanks for your reply. I am using the original PSU, and that is the only connection to the EZ, and the fault is there. It would be difficult for me to get it to the shop, for them to test, and I don't see the result being any different. I can take it apart, and have a poke about, but s...
