You need to provide more information about the loco, decoder and DCC system. If it's an HO LL P2K E6/7, it is DCC ready and should have worked. Mine did. Does the DCC system work qith other DCC equipped locos? Have you tested the decoder? Did the loco work on DC? Is anything working (lights)? Have you programmed the decoder to the correct address?

Also you might check that the plug attached to the decoder is installed in the correct way. If yo have put it in backwards, nothing will work. Dave
