I have no directions on how to operate them
33  Discussion Boards / HO / faulty switches on: November 02, 2013, 02:10:15 PM
I have a #44561RH &#44562LH DC switches that only work in one direction. I have changed the control but no difference. Are the motors bad or what.

Has anyone had trouble with setting up the tt in either dc or dcc.I cannot get it to work either way.I don't have directions.

I did try the other buttons,however they are not function buttons on the ez command box.When I do push them,nothing happens.
36  Discussion Boards / General Discussion / DCC Sound on board on: April 20, 2013, 12:43:19 PM
I have just purchased a Bachmann Alco FB2 Diesel Loco With Sound.
When I put it on the track it runs,but no sound.I am using the e-z command system.I pushed the function button along with #10,however nothing happens. Any ideas?
37  Discussion Boards / General Discussion / ez command versus dianamis on: January 07, 2013, 10:58:37 AM
I am looking for a dcc command unit that will run both dc and dcc including all the sounds in those dcc engines.
Will the dianamis system do this?
38  Discussion Boards / General Discussion / Re: ez command power booster on: January 05, 2013, 08:44:47 AM
I did that as requested by MRC but it did't send power to the track.They said it probably wasn't (bachmann) compatible with prodigy even though bachmann says its compatible with all systems.
39  Discussion Boards / General Discussion / ez command power booster on: January 04, 2013, 04:52:42 PM
I have a prodigy express dcc controller and I want to use my bachmann power booster #44910 in compatibility together.How can you do it?
40  Discussion Boards / HO / converting dc to dcc on: March 19, 2012, 12:45:15 PM
I have a FA2 DC I want to convert to DCC. I have a 8-40 pc board I want to use.I also have the decoder.All Items are bachmann.

Mr. C,
You can alternately run a dc locomotive on address 10 if you do not have the 44212 dc power pack hooked up to your E-Z Command.  Then the dc locomotive and the DCC locomotives both draw power from the E-Z Command's wall power supply (wall wart.)  If you have the 44212 hooked up, the dc locomotive and the DCC locomotives  both draw power from the 44212's wall wart.  There are two advantages of using the 44212 - it gives you a completely separate CAB (speed and direction controls) for the dc locomotive and it allows address 10 to be used for another DCC locomotive.  Having the 44212 hooked up does not provide any more power for operating the trains.  Normally the wall warts for the 44212 and the E-Z Command are identical and interchangeable.  Is it possible that yours are different?
The wall warts are exactly the same,( numbers are identical) Could I use a 5 amp wall wart to correct this problem?

... sound and regular DC locos draw more than a newer DCC non-sound loco.


ACY,
I am not sure what you mean by "regular" locomotives.  A dc locomotive that is converted to DCC by adding a non-sound decoder will not draw less current.  If anything, it will draw slightly more to power up the decoder.  Are you perhaps referring to older train set locomotives with less efficient motors than those used these days?

no, I'm not running sound
43  Discussion Boards / HO / Re: low power on dc when dcc is used on: January 07, 2011, 07:41:28 PM
yes thats what bachmann said to do in the dcc instructions
44  Discussion Boards / HO / low power on dc when dcc is used on: January 07, 2011, 04:49:24 PM
I have a 44902 dcc command system that is hooked into a dc 44212 power pack suggested by bachmann to run dcc & dc at the same times.Problem is when I run them together they both slow way down. Is a$300.00 5amp booster needed to operate efficiently?
45  Discussion Boards / HO / Re: won't reverse on: April 26, 2010, 09:11:47 AM
I was able to change button locations,BUT, the new location still won't let either a or b units run in reverse in that number(1)
