Monorail Advice
#16
Hi Super. Ive tried all of that, thanks for the advice though.

I got it on eBay. I reached out to the vendor, so we will see what happens. My gut feeling is that worst case if I had to take it apart, I could probablty figure out what ‘off’ but I do not really want to mess with that for $100.

On a side note, I did realize something about the on/off switch, the bracket that you mentioned ... it comes with one, but if you want to have it set up in a line rather than a loop, you would need 2

You mean the Reverse Switch? Yes that is true. you would need 2 clips for an open ended line but they are easily made. That is a good point though as I don't think any set came with a pair, only one but I could be wrong. I also don't think that these clips were sold separately which could be why they aren't easily found by themselves. I know they sold all on packs of the large risers so I am now wondering if one was included in those packs.

Let us know how dealing with the Seller goes.

I think this is Japanese for "go pound sand"

Just file a Claim for Refund through Ebay and make sure you state the reason for refund is that the "Item is Not as Described". I believe that sellers on Ebay are always responsible for condition up until you receive it no matter whether it was damaged in transit or not especially since they can not prove it worked before it was shipped and there was no damage to the box. How is their Feedback Rating?

Thanks for the advice, I’ll try that.

I’ve done some troubleshooting and it’s the on/off switch... I dont think I have a replacement.. yet

ok, so I have isolated it not to the switch, but to what looks like a resistor, but it only has two bands.  Maybe a diode?.  it was under the black rubber between the terminal and the switch See red arrow.  If I bypass it, everything works... but I would assume they put it here for a reason?
any thoughts?  I do freely admit that while I know a little bit about circuits and definitely more than I knew a couple of months ago, I'm still a novice at best!

Gracias gents.

I wonder if there is a way a Multi-Meter could be used to tell how much resistant there is so you would know what to buy? Hopefully a member comes by and helps you out.

still TBD.  I still have the thing in pieces and its on the list of stuff to fix.  in the meantime I bought a cool 'junk' hanging one from Jauce and that one works great!

That blue hanger is my favorite. Hmmm, I would think a battery cover would be a great candidate for a 3D printed copy. Wonder if Sir Nigels would be interested. Mine are all stored away but here is a quick question as I have forgot...is the battery cover screwed down or just have a clip molded into the cover that snaps it into place?

Question.  Can a bridge support both under-rail monorail systems and over-rail Plarail Monorails at the same time?

Sure...as long as you use the Tall under rail risers with the over rail clips on the top
