Before I box my Prodigy Advance and send it to MRC for repair, thought I'd post my issues to hear if anyone else has the same issues.
MRC states my Prodigy Advance may be one of the early ones that had read-back issues, but I'm not so sure, the store I purchased this from in December moves a lot of inventory.
The problems I am having are:
- Inability to Read decoder settings on the program track;
- Locomotive starts moving when programming decoder on the main track;
Atlas Master Series GP-38 with dual-mode decoder installed at the factory(decoder set to DCC) Atlas GP-40 with Digitrax DH163A0 decoder installed by myself
When I attempt to read decoder settings on the program track, I get the following errors:
- For the GP-38 I get ERR ADR
- For the GP-40, the value returned is always 0 (for address, CV, etc)
I can program the decoder of both locomotives on the program track, I just can't read the settings.
When I attempt to program the decoder on the main track, the locomotive will start moving at a decent speed even though the throttle is set to 0. ie: On main track, if I program a CV, the new setting gets stored, and the locomotive starts running down the track.
I have 1 cab, and the cab is set to address 1, last operational cab set to2, cab select set to 1-8, last cab allowed to program is set to 2.
