Hi Guys,

Ive just had a strange occurrence with one of my Hornby DCC ready, Hornby chipped, A4s.

I was following the instructions in my Select controller manual to create a 'Consist' [double heading] between my A4 and a Hornby BoB Class.

However, when I dissolved the Consist both locos required their original addresses to be re-programmed, as they had both reverted to the default '03' setting [which doesn't normally happen].

The BoB was fine once programmed back to '09' - but for some reason the A4 always re-sets itself to the factory '03' setting, every time the controller is unplugged and then plugged in again.

It must be a decoder problem, as all my other locos re-programme fine [they all use the Hornby chip].

Is there anything I can do to reset the A4's decoder - or does it sound like a fault with the chip's memory?
