After having my MTH DCS System up & running for nearly two years I just purchased two new MTH G/N F-7 PS3 Diesels. Set up went well except for the Lash up, it was not successful but not a priority at the time.
The two engines were identical except for numbers 274 & 274 B. 274 made one trip around the layout and stopped dead. 274 B worked fine. THEN the lights on "B" stopped working other than the side markers.
I took them to the store they were purchased at, they were reset and worked fine there. At home neither would work, the 274 would light, smoke and sounds but would not respond to functions on the hand held control. SO on advice from the dealer both were deleted and an attempt to re-install was done. Nothing. The hand held was reset along with the TIU in hopes another re-install would happen, nothing. Yesterday many attempts were made at reset/install and no luck BUT 274 B did light up once, smoke and have sound but again no response from the controller. Short of returning the TIU & the hand held has anyone ever had this issue before? It always happens when grandkids are on the way for the holidays
