    Default PR 1b Paragon 2 mystery button

    Hi, Can anyone tell me which of the myriad little specs on the decoder is the reset button? Manual says it is there but don't see anything that looks particularly buttonish.

    That's interesting sir. The board in my M1b looks nothing like that, wonder what the factory installed?

    I am currently unable to post pics (no camera). When I took this loco out of storage I reset all CVs to default, no problem. The issue is that everything but the chuffs works fine, chuffs silent. CV 155 (chuff vol) set to 128 and 250 without result.

    I don't recall where it is exactly, but I do remember that it's extremely tiny and doesn't really look very much like a "button". It's there though.

    That's the one I have Spookshow. I actually went over it with a toothpick pressing everything that remotely looked like a button.

    I'd send an email to BLI. They're very good about answering such questions.

    This is another reason to avoid BLI. Anything that small and unmarked requiring the tender shell to be removed is just a result of bonehead engineering.

    Talked with a BLI tech rep today about the issue of no chuff sounds on a M1b. Turns out that there are chuff sensors in the engine that determine chuff sounds. Since I did not keep the receipt I'm STOL on them repairing this one. Another ESU LokSound appears to be in order.

    For that I don't foresee ordering anything from BLI. Good luck with this!
