Noch Illuminated Christmas Tree

Postby mark_brody » Fri Jan 07, 2011 6:09 pm

Hello,

I just taken delivery of the above said item (code 11912) and I can't get it to illuminate?! It says on the box 14-16v and my transformer is putting out 15.5v DC but nothing is happening. Has anyone had similar problems, am I doing something wrong?

Cheers

Mark

Just looking on the web it states: Power required: 14-16v AC.

AC, you are using DC.

I have the N scale one and the wires are unshielded.... it tooks some fiddling with the wires to seperate them so they didn´t short out against each other

I don´t know if the H0 one is the same.... Does look very nice when lit tho :)

Thanks for the replies and sorry for not coming back sooner. I wasn't sure if it was AC or DC so have tried both, but neither worked. It is the same as the N scale one in that the wires aren't shielded which is tricky. But I checked with my multimeter and all seemed to be OK. So I'm not sure. I've taken it back to the shop and they are testing it, so we'll see what happens. I'll let you know.
