1  Discussion Boards / General Discussion / Re: Is there a way to start sound-enabled locos silently? on: September 18, 2018, 04:11:18 PM
From the Tsunami manual;

Using the quiet mode
Tsunami quiet mode is used to turn the sound on only after the decoder is
placed into action.
It will also automatically turn the sound effects off when
the decoder is not being used.
This is particularly useful when you have a
large number of sound equipped engines on your layout and don't wish to
have them turn on all at once!

To activate the quiet mode, simply program cv113 to any non-zero value
between 1 and 255. 0.1 sec per step.

Ok, i see.
I replaced the adapter for a 21 pin Bachmann decoder , no sound a few years ago.
I see no problem installing a 21 pin with sound.
But i have no experience with that.

My older 2-6-6-2's have a decoder with sound incorporated.
I presume your's is of the modern type with add on sound pcb.
If so you can use the 2-4-4-2 sound add on pcb.

I milled the top of the weight away inside the fire box.
Enough space for a small decoder without sound.

Keep in mind that the bigger the speaker the bigger the sound range is.
The sounder Bachmann placed inside the cab of the Porter was hopeless.

Looks like it.
The only way i can imagine is to much Amps.

If i want to see if a led lights up i use the beeper/200 Ohm function.
If i want to test the diode working of the led i use the diode/2K function.
Your 188 Ohm is a mystery to me.

Did you measure the led's when disconnected  or connected to the pcb?
Always see if the led's work individually using the multimeter.
Using a power supply without any resistor can damage the led.
Voltage is not important, Current is much more.
If the led drawes more than is allowed (20mA) you will damage the led.
R=(U-U led)/0.02

Always isolate the motor.
Better be safe than sorry.
The motor is fed by a separate circuit from the decoder and does not like the "AC" from the track.
