Re: 2-8-2 Mikado V-Start & Acceleration

Val Pistilli <vpistilli@...>
 

Merrill, what values do you have in CV's 2, 3, and 4?

In my 2-8-2, I have
CV 2 = 0
CV 3 = 18
CV 4 = 16

Loco-Tender Connectors

I like the 6 wire connectors BLI uses for the locomotive-tender connection.
They would be perfect for updating older locomotives to sound and DCC. Does
anybody know a manufacturer or source for these connectors?

Flickering K4 Headlight Solved

Group:

Thanks to everyone who offered advice about the flickering K4 headlight. The suggested CV29 change did the trick.

Re: BLI E7 diesel Light Problem

Bob Young <bob.young@...>
 

To: Bill Roger

Two possible scenarios;

1) Ensure that you have 'Speed Step' compatibility between the QSI
decoder address and the command station.
2) The E7 headlight will only be bright when there is some amount of
throttle dialled in.


Which particular P2K locomotive. The BLI/QSI E7 that I have runs at bout
100kmh at full throttle on 'N' scale track voltage. My Atlas/NCE-DA102
GP38-2 run at about 130kmh under the same conditions.

The head light is always on cannot control with F0 on the throttle? And
it will go dim very dim and the only way to get it to come back on is to
shut down and repower it. This was a BLI Outlet Direct purchase. Can
anyone suggest a cure for that?

And the diesel runs slow compared to the top speed of a P2K, is that
normal?

Try resetting to Factory defaults.

On most, remove the shell & jumper the reset terminals. You'll have to reprogram any settings you programmed including the address which will revert to 03.

Does the new Proto GP9 have LEDs, or same lights the the other Protos
have.

I ask beciase all of the QSI diesel sound decoders that I have

sound the same regardless of the actual locomotive in which they
are
installed.
So far all of them (except ATLAS Trainmaster)are EMD models so they
will have EMD engines sound.


Re: QSI problem

Denny Anspach <danspach@...>
 

Perhaps someone can push me in the right direction.

I have a BLI 2-8-2 that I successfully programmed to four digits, and it worked OK over a period of months. I went to get it out for some demonstration operations for my grandchildren recently, and it was "dead". No sounds, no lights, no motion. I checked the <address> and it was now a completely different number than had been originally programmed. I then reset the decoder, and programmed the correct number again. This time it responded, and the engine did everything that it was supposed to do, except still no lights. I set it aside for two days until the children came. I then tried it again, but this time the only sound that I could get was the "background", but no other sounds (whistle, or bell), and it would not move (or, of course, chuff). Very frustrating, if not downright irritating.

I then checked the CV, and- the only response that I now got was that "there was now no decoder"!

What is happening? No decoder can be read, the only sound is the "background", the lights will not work at all, and the engine will not move?

Re: K4 Headlight Problem

Bob Young <bob.young@...>
 

To: Greg Johnson

Confirm that the address that you are using for the decoder is in agreement
with the 'Speed Step' of the decoder. Locomotive lighting flickering with
speed changes is indicative of mismatched speed step assignment between the
command station and the decoder.

Hello,

I also posted this on the Broadway Limited list, so if you are on both,
please excuse the duplication.

I just received my K4 and it runs like a watch and looks beautiful.
However,
I am having problems with the headlight; it flickers nearly every time I
change speeds. Also sometimes it turns off and sometimes it is on. In
addition, the F0 doesn't seem to have any effect on it. I tried the reset,
but that didn't help. Does anybody know how to fix this problem? I tried
removing the smokebox front and giggling the wires, but there was no
change.

Do you use 28 speed steps, and the decoder expects 14 speed steps?
'cause in 14 speed step mode the F0 is part of the speed command, as the
least significant bit. Thus going at the station from 0 to 1 the light
goes on, but speed is still 0. from 1 to 2 the light goes off, and the
loco starts moving (or tries to), and so on.
Anyway, check if CV29 is setup right. actually bit 1 of bits 0 to 7
should be set to 1 if you're using 28 (or 128) speed steps, and 0 if
you're using 14 speed steps.

Adjusting start-up sounds

Don Borden <daborden@...>
 

I have played with the Soundtraxx decoders and find you can adjust the
start-up for different but consisted diesel units to initiate revs at
slightly different times making multiple unit lash-ups sounds even more
interesting. Has anyone played with the QSI decoders to do the same
thing?
