Flashing lights after a short

4478 Views 13 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  zmil
Having got my N scale layout up and running with a Lenz Set 100 in control, if I get a short then any loco fitted with a Lenz mini-gold decoder (via a NEM651 socket) sits there with the lights flashing once the short is reset. The locos with TCS M1s don't seem bothered! I cannot find a simple way of resetting them but assume there must be one. If I lift the loco off the track and replace it, it's fine but not ideal to say the least.

Anyone able to give me a simple pointer as to what is happening here please and a better way of resolving the reset?

We have had similar problems with Lenz Gold decoders, both our own & customers. They do seem to dislike FLM locos with the earlier 3-pole motor in particular. Usually we swop them for ESU, Lenz Silvers or Bachmann 3-function (which are ESU) anyway.
