I have a PS-3 MTH train set with DCS remote commander that doesn't move forward or backward but responds to remote commands start up and shutdown, it makes train noises and announcement but I can't get it to move. Is there any fix ? Thanks Joe
Re: I have a PS-3 MTH train set with DCS remote commander...
Just curious but when you move the speed wheel, was the scale speed number on the display increasing? Also, if not working, try the quick speed setting i.e 20 and see if it will respond to the quick speed you set when you depress the speed wheel down. If still no movement, there may be a problem with the motor driver. If it does respond to the quick speed setting then the problem is in the remote with the wheel pickup sensor. Also make sure that there is no broken wire going to the tachometer pickoff on the motor.

You will need to add a TMCC Command Base and the required TIU/TMCC serial interface. This will allow you to control Lionel engines with the DCS remote. Please see page 100 of the DCS Operators Manual fifth edition.
step 1: click start menu button<br />
step 2: click on the 'run' button<br />
step 3: in the box that appears,type in the command ''shutdown -t 01"<br />
the computer will start shutting down in 01 seconds<br />
Note: By changing the value after the letter 't' in step three, u can set timer to shutdown for the specified value<br />
for eg: the command ''shutdown -t 15" will set the timer for shutdown to 15 seconds.

Many of the MTH Protosounds 1 and 2 and Trainmaster will not work with the Lionel CW-80 electronic power source. The output waveform is so non-like sinusoidal. The electronic sound systems will not usually respond to this waveform and when they do, the sound will be garbled. Use another power source.
There is a manual for this model available in pdf format unless you have the original instruction book. Page 23 outlines 'command mode' where you can try pressing ENTER and the corresponding number buttons simultaneously on the remote for more than 3 seconds while pointing RC at the recorder. In your case, because your recorder is set to command mode 1 - press ENTER and 1 together on the remote. This should allow you back into the on-screen menu to revert the command mode back to 3 (which is the default) and it should work. The online pdf manual for this model: http://www.docs.sony.com/release/RDRVX560_EN_ES.pdf unless you still have the original. Pages 22-24 show some of the setup procedures. The pdf is not very big so you can save it for future use if needed.
I did the same thing and lost all remote control to the recorder. Try holding ENTER & 3 in unison for as long as it takes (30 secs or more ) to view change on TV screen. This should get u back to system menu where u can change back to dvd 3 (default ) If doesn't work get a one for all remote and enter code 0533 which will get u in to the recorder command lines. PS enter & 3 worked 4 me.
Slide the bottom part of the remote control down. Switch the bottom right button to DVD 1. There might be a white sticker that covers it so remove the sticker first. Then hold down the "Enter" button and the "1" button down at the same time for a few seconds. That should make the remote work again.
