thanks jward

I kind of suspected an overheating problem - here are the answers to your questions.

how many trains are you running at one time? -2

are they older models that you had to install decoders in? - new models factory installed dcc equipped?

does the ez command shut down regardless of the number of locomotives being run, i.e. can you run just one locomotive for an extended period of time without problems - shuts down with one

I have been thinking about going to another dcc system - I know that you cannot recommend anything on this forum, but if you have a moment, please send me a recommendation  at honz.dw@gmail.com.

thanks again

hello all

for some reason my trains just stop after running for about an hour - used to be a half hour. I have to press the stop button to restart the trains, which run for about a minute or two, then stop again. I let the trains sit for a few minutes and restart - all goes fine for a while.

does anyone know why and how to remedy the problem?

Roger, I do not know - I have just started working with DCC - the Dynamis is my first. But from what I have seen in some of the You Tube clips, I think so.

Joe, I gave up trying to program on the main line and used the programming track method and made sure there was power to the track at all times. After the new address was set (had to use two numbers, wouldn't accept one), the program key appeared - I pressed it and the loco did a coupled of surges. I then shut off all power - both the Dynamis hand set and base unit for about a minute. I turned everything back on and the trains were fully controllable only when their address was selected.

One would think that Bachmann could have done a better job explaining the process - I cannot wait to stat programming the CV's  Grin

I am having trouble changing the address of locomotives - I followed the instructions in the sketchy manual and in a You Tube video presented by Bachmann - no luck! here is what I am doing:

[MENU] --   scroll to PROGRAM   [ACCEPT] – DID THIS
              --  scroll to WRITE ADDR 0003      - DID THIS
                  ON MAINTRACK        [ACCEPT] -  DID THIS (also tried this on service track setting)

Screen shows
                 CHANGE ADDR LOC - OK
                  WRITE ADDR 3
[BKSP] to delete existing address
Use alphanumeric keys or joystick to enter new address up to 127 - DID THIS, tried 1, 11, 111 and 1111

CHANGE ADDR 0003 – DOES NOT SHOW
WRITE ADDR 68        – DOES NOT SHOW

There is no program, scroll or accept chooice - just X

The engin just sust sits dead on the track when I stry to run it, but the sound is on - but cannot blow the horn, turn on the lights, etc. I have to select the default address (3) to operate the engine.

Please someone HELP

Just an update - I believe that I was able to program the engine, somewhat - the engine slightly jerked when I removed the emergency stop and hit the track icon, program. When I turned off the Dynamis equipment and turned it back on, the train didn’t move nor could the sounds be activated when a different  loco address was selected – the engine only made the idling sound – very good, the way it should work.
When I did operate the train under the programed address, it worked fine– very good, the way it should work. HOWEVER, the engine was then fully operable under any loco address I selected.
What is going on here?

extremely vague and confusing to someone just beginning to use this equipment

that is why I asked what I asked
12  Discussion Boards / HO / Bachman DCC programming on: July 16, 2013, 12:40:00 PM
I am having trouble changing the engine number of my 2nd engine on the EZ Command DCC control station - can anyone point me to a good detailed reference source that explains how to reassign the number (current default on both engines is 3)? Or can you explain the steps?

I would very much appreciate any input

I recently bought a Bachmann DCC starter set which came with the E-Z Command Dynamis control system and a decoder equipped DCC Turnout.

How in the world do you program and operate the darn thing - the instructions are at best, sketchy.

Any help would be much appreciated.
