Kelly,

Attached is a picture. I have two of these. I hope you have a quick fix.

Look forward to hearing from you.

Bill,

The caps have nothing to do with this problem. It is the ORIGINAL chip in the decoder. It was crippled thanks to a frivolous lawsuit by MIKE'S TRAIN HOUSE claiming he invented the DCC technology for sound. QSI had to "cripple" those features until the suit was settled (Mike LOST). The only cure is to purchase the upgrade chip . They are available from Litchfield Station. The upgrade will cure that problem plus open up features like BEMF. I was a BETA tester for the upgrades and programmer. I have over 15 OEM decoders with upgrade chips in them and none has had the problem return.

The chips can be purchased pre-programmed with the correct sound file or , if you know someone with a programmer, they can load the correct file for you.

Good luck,
Nick Kulp

Sounds like they have failed caps on the board...send them to QSI c/o Kelly Dorf.

Subject: [QSIndustries] Proto 2 k’s reseting to defualt

 

I have a couple of old Proto 2 k’s with what JMRI reports as QSI Ver 6 decoders.


They run good but it seems if there are a couple shorts on the layout they lose there programing and return to default 03 and lose all there other settings. At least that is what I think cause them to reset. Anyhow, they may run a couple of sessions with no problems and the next time one or the other or both reset. These are the only two of over 90 locomotives that do this. This is nothing new it has been happening since new I guess just really feed up with them messing up in the middle of a session. 


They are usually not run together but MU’d using Digitrax command station consisting to non-sound units.


Sadly, some operators just seem to run into the points more than others do.


Anybody have any tricks to fix this or is it just time to scrap the decoders.

Hi,
I had the same problem with the drivers on QSI website. I downloaded the latest Win1064x drivers from Silicon Labs website and got the drivers going. It works fine now. Hope this helps.

You have to tell windows to allow unsigned drivers. Its 8 or so pages down in the installation guide.

Re: Diesel short/long air release sounds

I'm also referring to DCC operation.

Are those the only states of operation that those air release sounds are played? I hear long and short air releases on the prototypes at many different states of operation. I was wondering if the emulator also takes that into account.

Hi Stephen:


I am not sure if you are operating in DC or DCC.  In the land of DC, when you bring your train to a stop, you will hear a short air let off, indicating you can change direction with the reverse switch, without the loco actually entering neutral. If you wait until the second air let off occurs, your engine is now in neutral, and flipping the direction switch will cause the horn to sound. If I have missed your question, let me know.

Diesel short/long air release sounds

Steven Lansing
 

Are the Diesel (Q3 soundset) short and long air release sounds only triggered by the DCC controller or does the emulator also trigger these air releases based on the locomotive movement and state? I'm not referring to the air dryer or spitter valve sounds which are only randomly triggered within the set time intervals.

Send me some photos of your set-up.  It just so happens I am working on G-wire receivers this weekend.

Re: What's with CV 56.1

Bruce Shanks
 

No luck getting the receiver to respond. Tried DC on the rails and a DC power supply on the Battery side of the switch, and putting the decoder into wireless mode with DC and the reed switch input and CV 56.1 on the Titan.
It just wants to run the loco at speed corresponding with voltage unless DC operation is turned off with CV 29. Why does a reset change CV 29 back to 6, which is setting the decoder up to operate on DC as well as 28 DCC speed steps?

Receiver frequency indicator dot is on 0 and the AirWire throttle says Freq. 0. I noticed on the back side of the receiver board near the disable pads, there are 4 pads labeled PWR, RX+, RX-, and GND. A voltmeter check from PWR to GND always read 0.0 in all my testing, including both the Magnum and Titan decoders. Since both decoders gave the same result, I suspected the cable. Checked the ribbon cable out with an ohm meter and all 5 stripes are good. Gave a shot of canned air into the receptacles on both ends before reinserting the cable. No change. I can't figure out why two different decoders (differing models to boot) give no voltage out. I only have access to one (borrowed) AirWire throttle, and the one G-wire receiver, so either of them could be bad, but the throttle works at the club, and assuming the the pads on the receiver are the inputs, it doesn't explain the lack of voltage.

I guess I'm in the market for some Convertr's

Thanks for your time.

A new style of Titan board or a new version decoder board all together?

I would not expect a lot of information about an upcoming decoder. Letting out too much information too soon can lead to problems once the product is out. Not everything explored will end up in the finished product which will lead to upset customers. Early leaks will also call for a lot of email about what they should be putting in the decoder instead of what they plan to and constant questions about when it will be out.

Thanks Mike.  Looking forward to see what they do eith the new releases.  But it shure would be nice to get some more detailed info on the steam engine files and programing.  There has been a lot of piecemeal info released but not a lot of in depth descriptions.
