Train remote control question
Today we are building trains. What a way to waste a Sunday - fabulous fun. I bought one from someone on here for my lads birthday last week and it's been a great hit so I fished out the Harry Potter train and also an older cargo train. Set it all up and he's having a great time. However, I am struggling with the cargo train. I think the remote may be faulty.
It's set up as per instructions I've put new batteries in everything. The remote flashes green when you press it. The battery box has a green light. So does the receiver.
When I press the remote the receiver flashes.
However it won't power the train.
If you connect the battery direct to the train it works fine but obviously with no functions on it. Therefore it must be either the receiver or remote which is faulty.
Can anyone help please? I am no electrics expert and plug it in and hope is more my line of attack. Is there anything else I can try?
