I bought a Lenz DCC system. I connected it up, and soldered a decoder into my Hornby J83 (cheapest & therefore most disposable thing on the layout). I programmed an ID into the decoder, put the loco on the main and switched on. The red LED on the controller went out and the PSU gave out no volts. A replacement PSU has done the same thing, so I'm guessing the controller is fried, which is a bore (back to McKay, they are very good but postal delays yada yada - I'm impatient).
Before I connected the controller up again I tried to read the adress fromt he decoder - it gave me E02, which was the same error I got before, but McKay tested the decoder & it was OK. Has anyone else seen E02 on the Lenz?
McKay are confident that the Lenz is OK with old-fashioned worm-drive locos, has anyone out there tried it? Am I using the wrong decoder?
Any help appreciated.
