I was hoping that MTH would post something about this but they have not. I think I have caught all that I have sold through my shop. Only one was melted.
MTH VO-1000 Smoke Issues.
To anybody who has the latest version of the MTH VO-1000s. There is a software issue that allows the smoke unit to get too hot. This is fixed by reflashing the board.
Here is where the chain files are:
20-21217-1 | MTH ELECTRIC TRAINS
Here are the steps to reflash:
1. Click on the SUPPORT tab
2. Click on the PS3 icon
3. It will down load a .ZIP file
4. Unzip the file
5. This will give you two more files
1-a .MTH file (sound file)
2-another .ZIP file (chain files)
6. Open the Loader program
7. Select the FLASH icon
8. Follow the instruction on the screen
9. Use the second .ZIP file from step 5
If you are not comfortable doing this yourself, return it to the shop you purchased it from or return it to MTH.
DO NOT RUN IT WITH THE SMOKE ON BEFORE IT IS FIXED
