I have an atlas rs1 that does not run backwards anymore, in forward position, no problem.  What can i do to solve this problem, if anything.

thanks, paul

Sounds like a decoder issue. You can remove the shell and turn the motor several rotations in each direction to make sure there isn't any problem with the drivetrain. But it's probably a B/O decoder.

Do you think restoring to factory default would solve this problem?

Yes I would try resetting decoder to factory specs & see if that restores normal movement.  What type dcecoder is installed?  Sound?

It's a factory installed loksound decoder.

When in doubt reboot. If that doesn't work go to Tsunami for one thats more reliable.

Since it is Atlas installed warranty or service work needs to be done through Atlas. If you buy a decoder off the shelf and install it yourself then you work with Soundtraxx.
