KB675 Resetting a mobile decoder to factory settings

Most Digitrax mobile decoders have a global reset function, which returns the decoder's CVs to their factory default settings.This is useful if the CV values in a particular decoder have been changed with less than wonderful results. For example, you may have accidentally set the CV value for acceleration so that the engine won't move for minutes when issued a speed command. This makes it look like the decoder is not working when all it needs is to have the CV value for acceleration reset. Many of the decoders that are sent to us for repair just need to have ...

KB548 TF4 - Reset CVs to factory default

Q: What is the exact reset procedure for a TF4? I tried both with series 3 procedure (CV8) and the other mobile decoders procedure with no success. My TF4 remains out of control. However, the white output makes the LED on my decoder testing board flicker. A: Since CV8 to 08 only works on series 3 and later decoders, it does not work on the function only decoders. TF4's CVs must be reset manually to factory values. The Factory Default Values are: CV64 000 CV61 002 CV49 000 CV50 000

KB46 Reset Pre-Series 3 Digitrax Mobile Decoders to Factory Defaults

Digitrax Series 3 and later mobile decoders are reset by setting CV08 to a value of 08 to reset everything or 09 to reset every thing EXCEPT the loadable speed table.Earlier Digitrax decoders require resetting each CV individually. To reset earlier Digitrax mobile decoders: Reset your decoder to the factory settings by going into program mode and manually resetting the following CVs to these values: CV01=03 CV29=06 CV03=00 CV04=00 CV02=00 CV05=00 CV06=00 If you set up loadable speed tables, you may also need to reset CV65=00 CV66=00 CV67=00 CV68-93=00 CV91=00 CV95=00

KB852 Loco Won't Stop or Start As Expected

Whoa!!!!!Each locomotive on your railroad has a mobile decoder which receives the command control signals from the command station and operates the locomotive motor accordingly.  The performance of mobile decoders can be adjusted by changing the Configuration Variables (CV's) of the decoder.  You can improve the speed performance of a locomotive by adjusting its start speed (CV02, V-Start), its mid-range speed (CV06, V-Mid) and its top speed (CV05 - V-Max).  You can also adjust the acceleration (CV03) and the deceleration (CV04).If the deceleration CV value you set for a particular loco is very large, this can make it look like ...
