    I've had 2 now to go in the same loco.

    Both I think ran fine before any adjustment, (well the second one defiantly worked!) but when I have come to read the decoder in decoder Pro, it then comes up as the main address is 0 and won’t let me program anything. I can’t change the loco number back from 0 or any other CV?

    Anyone else had this issue?

    As an update, I’ve still got everything reading as Zero on every CV on Decoder pro on both decoders...

    Tried another loco and all reads ok.

    So, I thought I’d try a reset on CV8 on my ZTC controller.. it didn’t acknowledge any change (so the screen read) but it did fire up again on address 3 on CV3. So it’s now running again... tried it on decoder Pro and it’s all 000000’s again..??

    Thoughts? (I’ve tried direct and pages mode)

    Also the lights now won’t come on?

    Paul Dundee may have some knowledge of it as he uses decoder pro from memory. There will something simple that will sort it out.

    Well, I’ve sent a message to Andrew crossland who makes the Sprog board I use as an interface. I’m wondering if it’s an inadequate power supply.

    But if @paul_l knows?? Or has any thoughts? Brill!
