Just Killed My Digitrax System
I have one DCS100 and two DB150s on my layout. The two DB150s are operating as boosters but not in reverse loops. Things have been operating just fine for the past month.
I am building my layout and was doing some soldering on track leads. The power was shut off to the entire layout as I have in the past. The soldering iron suddenly arced to the wire I was soldering and then I heard a pop noise from one of the DB150s then all the command stations beeped a few times then went silent. The system was still powered off. I checked the power switch and turned the layout on. I don't recall the beep number, but the track status will not come on with any of them. There is power to the front plug of each command station but the track status won't come on. When I attempt to turn on the track power using the DT100 I get 4 beeps from the command station. I have cleared all memory with OPSW#39 but the track status does not change. I have tried all this with the loconet disconnected from the DCS100. The Power on light of one of the DB150s flashes three times every second or so and the other has no lights at all.
Did I just kill my entire Digitrax system?
