my DCC loco stopped communicating with the DCC controller... what's up? ...  I get sound from the engine, but no bells & whistles, and no movement either forward or backwards... the loco has Econami Sound Value...

Simple things first... have you got the loco selected by the correct loco ID number in your controller? Sounds dumb, I know, but more than once my controller has undergone a "hiccup," and suddenly my loco doesn't respond because the controller has "slipped" to a different (sometimes totally random) loco ID. can cause a bit of a panic if the loco is actually running, and needs to be stopped...

yes, the correct loco number was (is) selected... I was wondering if it possible to re-select the factory default setting of "3" to start again from the beginning, and go from there.. the loco number is "7369", and I have also re-enter that loco number into the DCC controller with no luck... the loco was working just fine, then all of a sudden it's stops working correctly...
