Re: Quantum programmer not functioning

Joó Ferenc

Thank you Greg and Peteski,

Upon receiving a hint that such issues have already been discussed in the group archives, I was able to check that probably the 2 Ohm resistor in the Programmer is damaged. I will first try to replace this and then try again.

Best regards,

Hmm  . . .  the buzz and flashing red light seems to me to indicate a hardware problem.  Is the loco you are trying to access with the Quantum programmer fully functional? Can you run it problem-free on your regular DCC system?

What model is it? What decoder is installed?

When I try to turn on the sound with F6 or the lights with F0 (i.e. not driving the motors), I get the messages. I am not sure what you mean by JMRI throttle. Is that the built-in throttle of the Quantum CV Manager? As I only used the QSI supplied Quantum CV Manager.
One error message I get says: 
SI_Read requested=4 read=2
The other:
There is a very quiet short buzz from the programmer and the red light starts blinking quickly.
