Sounds like you've got a duff one, which is unusual for Lenz. I have the LH101 and LZV200 that have both worked OK since new. Have you tried resetting the LH101 as well as the command station?

Hi all ive done so far was on the hand set gone to reset factory settings?, no idea how to reset the base station, did try deleting all loco addresses and starting again but alas would only recognise 0003?

I'm on ancient LH100 so nothing to suggest beyond the basic trick for devices with firmware of 'leave off power for 24 hours, and retry'.

However, fear not the warranty covers you.Can the retailer offer any advice? If not, another retailer I would try is 'Coastal DCC' as Kevin Dickerson is a mine of information. The backstop is A and H models as soon as they reopen 10 am Tuesday for advice, on the basis that they will ultimately end up handling any warranty claim as the UK Lenz agent.

I have had one of the earlier LZV/LH100 combinations for about 16 years. although these days, it operates the Workbench Layout.
In its early days, it operated Ashprington Road and I do recall having to reset the command station. IIRC the procedure was documented in the manual, but alas, I can't find that reference to hand.
In my case, the command station was forgetting locos while powered down. After resetting, it has worked fine ever since. But I dislike the antiquated throttles Lenz use, which was why I later purchased an NCE system - much more focussed around operating trains that being a system designed by 1980's VCR User Interface developers!

Hi thank you for that, im sending it back to rails of Sheffield give them a chance to have a look, then if no joy on to a and h didn't realize they we're the uk agents, this forum is invaluable and i thank all those who have offered advice so thanks once again
