Bachmann out of chuff sync

Postby Sammo » Fri Mar 23, 2018 11:25 pm

I have a bachmann 4-6-0 with tender (Kashmir) sound loco.
Generally I have been very pleased with it except now it has decided to change its chuff sync. It starts very fast and doesn't change with the speed of the loco. It only sounds correct when it is running at about 60% speed.

I don't know if there are any CVs I can change to bring it back to working correctly.
I am using a Digitrax controller.

Any ideas please.

I can only suggest setting it to default.

Someone will correct me if I'm wrong,
A reset will not reset the sound only the operating CV s, but as I say I may be wrong :?

If the loco is one of Bachmann's sound fitted items, then worth asking Bachmann service for help describing the problem you are experiencing; likewise it its a sound decoder with the recording from another retailer, ask them.
