First, a big thank-you to you all for responding!

Its a NCE decoder in an Atlas C424 loco that I bought used on ebay about 6 months ago and worked perfectly until I experienced a short circuit. I've tried resetting the decoder's CV many, many times (on a programming track). As soon as I place it on the track it takes off without power being turned on! Ive never seen it before. Looks like I will be replacing the decoder.

Thanks again!

I tried reprogramming the loco on the main track, and it completely ignores anything I try and races around the layout at an unbelievable speed.

I tried reprogramming on the service track and its hard to do because I have to use one hand to keep it in one place (my service track is only a couple feet long and wired seperately from the layout) while using the other hand to use the dynamis. It's a NCE D13SRJ decoder and the instructions says to change cv 30 to value 2 to reset it to factory settings. The train stops racing; vibrates once, pauses for a second, then takes off racing again. If I hit the stop button the train will stop however it wont allow you to program while stopped. The reprogramming does not take effect and the train takes off racing again. I also tried resetting the cv 8 to value 8 but it didn't work. I'm stumped! Thanks for your help guys, I appreciate it. Cheers!

Please help!

I have three locos that I use as a consist when all of a sudden one of them caused a short circuit and everything stopped (I use the Dynamis system). I quickly pinpointed the loco and removed everything else from the tracks. As soon as I hit the stop button again to resume power, it took off at full speed and will not respond to the controller at all! What can I do to regain control of my loco? I'm not very experienced with decoders and don't know what to check for! Thanks
6  Discussion Boards / General Discussion / HOW TO PROGRAM DCC TURNOUTS USING DYNAMIS on: February 23, 2017, 07:21:38 PM
After some frustration I figured out how to program my dcc turnout using the Dynamis system. Here's what you do:

1. ALWAYS use a service track or isolated track for programming as it not only protects your loco/accessory it protects all other decoders from being reprogrammed.
2. PRESS the mode button to view accessories and go to accessory 3 as it's the default address
3. PRESS and hold the programming button on your turnout and it will toggle back and forth (twice)
4. ENTER the new address
5. PRESS either straight/divergent button and turnout will toggle four times

Hope this helps!

Howdy!

I recently acquired the Dynamis and DCC turntable. Is it best to use the table as an accessory address, or normal address? Thanks!

Howdy!

Just wondering if anyone has tried using the Atlas brand elevated pier set with Bachmann's ez track? What is the grade percentage? Thanks!

10  Discussion Boards / Thomas & Friends / DCC Turntable and Tidmouth Sheds PLEASE HELP!!! on: April 26, 2014, 08:44:05 AM
After much debate, I dismantled my layout and will begin again. I am very interested in the DCC turntable and I would like to know EVERYTHING Before I buy... the good, the bad, and the ugly! So far I have learned it has a 14" diameter, with a 10" bridge and 16 indexed tracks. I also read that the Tidmouth Sheds will adapt as a roundhouse and I'm okay with that. My biggest concern is the indexed tracks... are they powered? It would take a lot of wiring to power all those...

Anything else I should know? All comments are appreciated. Happy Saturday! Smiley

Thanks for the advice. Didn't realize it may be the wrong magnets... got them second hand with no explanation, and no packaging. It sounds to me I don't have the delayed magnets... thanks again!
13  Discussion Boards / HO / Having Issues With Uncoupling on: February 21, 2013, 08:59:22 PM
I have been working on my couplers over the past few days and the only issue I seem to constantly have is when it comes to uncoupling... the whole process is fine except that it seems the couplers don't open enough and as soon as they move away from the magnet, they snap back and the cars are again coupled. The couplers are Kadee's for the most part, and gauge is correct, as well as height... maybe new magnets? Help please!

It's all good! I figured it out lol
15  Discussion Boards / HO / DCC Turnout Programing on: August 04, 2012, 12:00:06 PM
I have 7 dcc turnouts on my layout that all work great. One small thing... every time I power on the layout, three of the turnouts switch and I always have to change them back. Can I reprogram the default and if so, how do I go about it? I seem to have misplaced the instructions that came with it. Thanks and happy Saturday!
