    I have the same problem with my PSX-AR. The best the Manuel has to offer is to turn off the DCC to reset.

    Upon further inspection, the unit I got for parts has loose axles and the quartering is way off. I am replacing only the front wheel set and adjusting the quartering to my original loco.

    I disassembled the loco, the motor runs ok on dc. I have no way to know if the RPM is correct. I found no evidence of drive line binding or weak contacts. So I carefully reassembled it with no joy.
