I have a DC engine with the DC voltage going to my fixed Chanel on my TIU. I had been working fine with my WIU and my iPad and phone. I put another engine on the 3 rail track and it seemed to have the same address. I deleted the diesel and took the 3 rail engine off the track.  Now the DC diesel won’t add when I try to add the engine? It works in DC but not DCS now the DC transformer I am using is only putting out about 13V.  Do I need more power?  Any ideas?  Thanks.

This is what I would do

Add the 3 rail engine

Edit the 3 rail engine address to something else ( I wish MTH would let you use cab numbers like DCC )

Put the DC engine back on the track and do a read

Try adding the DC engine again

 

Just did all that. No luck. 😕

I would try Ben's idea of another TIU channel.

It maybe the transformer but have you tried resetting the engine first?

I don't have any HO but sometimes any of them get scrambled. I can only guess that you may be able to reset an HO engine like others first?

I also had a case where the remote wouldn't find an engine yet the app would. It was a while back and I forget the cure now? Something tells me it was a cross between a battery problem and also the software?

I seem to remember the issue not occurring with DCS 6.1. You are up to date on the remote's software version? Have you tried tethering the remote?

Is the TIU that you are adding at TIU address #1?

" on Sour mash and cheap wine " ??

Why go back to DCC when I have DCS!

Hmmm  did you try using a diffrent port on the tiu

Tried that too! "NADA"  I called MTH service and they didn't have a clue. They gave me a return number but that was going to be my last resort.
