Unfortunately COVID has made things difficult since many clubs are shut down right now. Any club or individual operating DCS could reset it for you. We used to do it quite frequently.

Good point, It looks like I'll just continue to sit out the  pandemic until times are better.

You really have not said how your operating this?  Are you using conventional transformer?  Which one?  You CAN unlock it with a conventional transformer with Bell and Whistle.  You do not need DCS.  G

I plan to run this loco in conventional mode with a Lional 6-32930 transformer. Unfortunately, it is an early PS3 model without the automatic reset feature and was previously run in DCS.  Any suggistions?  George

sxe60,

You don't need a DCS reset to run conventional. You can unlock the engine by pressing 1 horn, 3 bells and then hear  2 horn blasts to indicate the change.

Or you can do a conventional reset as the others have said above.  1 horn, 5 bells and then hear 2 horn blasts to indicate the change.

The directions on some of the RailKing sets don't have the directions to do this and only say you need a DCS reset to run the DCS REMOTE COMMANDER.

Try one of the above and see if it works. You may have to try a few times to get the timing right at about 1/2 seconds between button presses.

Do not confuse conventional operations and resets with the Memory reset to run on the Remote CDR which acts like a one channel DCS system.

Your instructions should tell you how to do this, or go to a PS-2 instruction.  The conventional codes where all the same for the basic reset, unlock, coupler, speed control.  G
