Check in your instructions if the frequency of the controller and the car can be changed...
If it can be changed to another channel then change one of the cars to the other channel...if it cannot be changed take one of the cars back and find another car that runs on a different channel...they often make the same model with different channels so you can run them head to head...

Hi, there is a HD sound box speaker fixed in the unit.if there is no sound coming that means either the speaker which is emitting the sound out is got faulty or the speaker wires have got loose or got cut in between. The unit needs to be opened and checked. It is not very hard but bit checking with meter or continuity tester is required to check the speaker and its wires....

I'm assuming the train is track powered with a power pack, and not battery powered, so there's actually a few possible solutions. I'll work from the easiest/cheapest, to the more advanced/expensive.

First, especially if the track is old or been in storage a while, the track may have a thin film of dirt, oil, or rust that is insulating the wheels from picking up the power they need from the track. Try cleaning the track with a mild soap but BE SURE TO DRY IT COMPLETELY before reattaching the power. Also, clean the wheels but use a cotton swab and very little water. One drop inside the motor might destroy it from the inside. You can also try a special track cleaning solution sold at your local hobby shop that has HO model train sets. That will work better, especially on lightly rusted parts. Also, make sure all the track connections are tight and free from contaminants.

Then, if you're feeling brave, you can check the motor of the train itself. Disassemble the locomotive and find the motor inside the housing. Check the wires leading from the wheel area to the motor for any corrosion, or loose/broken wires. If it's not the wires which are easy to solder back in place, I wouldn't recommend going any deeper into the motor as it's better and less frustrating to just buy a whole new set.

Finally, the problem may lay in the power pack (inverter) itself. I personally don't bother trying to fix a power pack, but if you know your electronics you could run some tests of the output voltage to the track, and the voltage on the track at various points. Again, it's not worth the time or effort to mess with the power pack unless you know what you're doing. You could get seriously injured or killed by the voltage/amperage running through those things. They even have enough stored electricity after they're unplugged to cause some nasty electrical burns from the capacitors.

Hope this helps and you're able to fix the problem so you can get back to enjoying the train set. I've always enjoyed watching them for hours, especially when I set up my track around the Christmas tree every year! Good luck!
