    I'm a new user (less than a month) with a Lenz LV100 & LH90 throttle.

    I have a Bachmann Spectrum 2-8-0 DCC ready with an NCE D13SRP deocoder.

    I'm trying to read and then set the address to the loco's road number, but I keep on getting an Er02 error. The decoder is installed correctly (the unit moves FORWARD and the 0 function turns the headlight on and off) so I don't think that is it.

    I tried reading several other CVs and each time during a rEAd, Er02 was returned.

    I am using an isolated programming track. It's a seprate oak plank with two 9" sectional tracks. The DCC is connected with alligator clips on the end of the rails.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks,

    I have an atlas master (which is based on a LENZ system) I think Er02 means the programmer cant comunicate with the dcc decoder. Dirty prgramming track etc.

    Hope this helps...
    Thanks

    Thanks. I figured it out soon enough. I was using the power bus wires, not the programing bus wires. Basically, I didn't even have the programing track conected.

    Yup, That would do it. I was thinking it could be the alligator clips. But if your not connecting the wires then it's hard to read.
