RailPro Discussion & Help / Re: Is it just me?

Traylor, I sent you an email. I'm sorry that this hasn't worked out well for you.

The most common cause of an unresponsive LM is a short in the installation that fries a component on the power input. Ring generally charges $25 to repair this. He say's it's easy to spot when this has happened when he opens it up.

Contact me and I'll be happy to do what I can to get you going or take the product back.

To start the installer, go to the folder where you saved it, and right click the file.
Then choose "run as administrator".

When you ran the software, did you actually right click it and choose "run as administrator" ?

press one button and have the locomotive automatically blow the correct sequence?  If that's what you're looking for, the answer is no.  That is not available on Railpro right now.  It could be added, but it's easy to blow the horn/whistle by pressing the button.

If you record your own custom horn sound you could do this. The "crossing" button would play the soundfile you create with the crossing pattern.

Is it possible that it was shorted during the install and died when it received power?

I would remove it from the locomotive, connect it directly to the power and test.

If you still can't see it then I would contact Ring Engineering for assessment and repair.

also, are you using a KA? or PBM? If a KA, what brand? (PBM is Ring's Keep Alive Product)

If you have KA's on Bridge rectifiers, your LM is only seeing 13.25v as there is a voltage drop on the bridge rectifier.

You'll want the LM-3S-G for G scale. It's made for the higher Voltages used in G scale.

If you don't want independent control of the lights, I expect you could place both lights on the same output.

Can you take the KA out and try it again?

Just found it illuminating (funny?) that Tim leaped all the way to fire hazard

Absolutely.

Tim responded it was a fire hazard. He seems paranoid of being sued or styrene is now considered a fire suppressant.

Most DCC boards are bare to begin with.

I'm guessing cooling would be best if you left it unwrapped, you'd just have to be mindful of potential shorts.
