Having read this, I have a DCC ready loco but having removed the blank connector there is no indocator at all which way the chip should be inserted - a 1 would have been a great clue. Any ideas how to proceed without frying everything?

Basically you will not fry anything.if you insert a 8 pin decoder the wrong way .you will have worked out there are only two ways .it makes no difference to the motor only to the lighting .

Hello everyone.

Hi again 'Going Spare' Smile

It's non-motorised, as the thread title.

I can't use a select or elite manual either I'm afraid, I use the Roco Z21.

 

Here's the funny thing, when I fit a [working] decoder to it the decoder doesn't register during programming, no lights, nothing.

Yet when I refit the blanking plate and place on the track the lights work fine.

 

Also, what directional lights are you referring to?

Place your DVT with the motorised loco on the track and programme the address together ( you can use the same address as the motorised loco ).Then using F0 the direction lights should work .you may have to alter the direction of the DVT so red lights when the motorised is white .

Two cv's 30 and 31 appear to offer some adjustment .referred to as stimulation for frequency and level tweek these up and down to see if they effect the motor.reset 8 to CV 8 if you get lost

You could try altering CV 10 to 0 .there was a bad bad batch of motors some time back . only replacing these will eliminate a bad motor .
