IR receiver and remote

TheMaker37TheMaker37 Norfolk,VaMember Posts: 482
So I got my Holiday Train setup...somewhat! I have no idea how all the functions work on the remote. I can build a house from the foundation up but am woefully ignorant to most electronics.

So I tried a test run without the tracks to see if it turned on after some fiddling I found that if I held down the right knob and moved it forward and backward the train responded. Then I set up the track and gave it a go, the wheels spun in place, then I remembered someone mentioned putting rubber bands on the large wheels and it moved a little better.

Then I shut it off and tried again and the train is no longer responding, I bypassed the receiver and it worked so the motor is fine. What is going on? I am very frustrated. Please help me obi-wan.

    Is the channel set the same on receiver and transmitter? Maybe you knocked the switch.

    That is the trick my son plays on his sister when it is her turn for a go on his train set.
