Hi
I am trying to register a Marlin T44 mfx locomotive on a Mobile Station 2. The locomotive is recognised, but I get a mysterious message saying "Confirmation missing from mfx locomotive". The speed controls work OK, but the functions are only partially functional, e.g. I can turn the sound on, but not off.

Can anyone tell me what this error message means and how to solve it. From the wording I would assume that there is some problem with the MS2 handshaking with the loco. The locomotive is relatively recent (2014) and the MS2 software has recently been upgraded to 2.5.

Thanks
Les

Hi Les,

I've seen that happen when the registration process has been interrupted or 'confused' in some way. Delete the loco from the MS2 and start again.

If necessary you should also do a 'reset' of the MS2 to clear any odd or lingering unusual behaviour. This will of course mean that you lose any loco in your list already.

Good luck!

The handshaking requires two to tango (and no interference from external sources).

For good measure you may wish to check for an update to the decoder firmware.
