  1. Hello, I am reaching out to all 12v train users. I recently purchased and received a 12v train (the 7725). Unfortunately the motor is dead, I put it on the track after building the whole model and setting all the track up to find it not moving. At first I thought maybe if it hadn't run in awhile it would need a little help. That didn't work so I tried it by just connecting a wire to the motor itself and gently moved the wheels. The motor started to produce a light smoke so I immediately shut the power off and haven't tried anything since. I did see some life though at one point, it did move about 1/16 of a turn at best and I could hear it trying to move. If the seller is cooperative hopefully I can work something out with him. If not I was hoping many people on this forum could lead me in the right direction. Here is what I know about the motor: It looks to have been opened before. It is the version with the separate bogie pin. From what I can see there is some hair spun around the axles. I am wondering if I need to completely give up on the motor or if there is a way to fix or replace just the motor inside. I am really lost and would love any help that someone could give me. I looked for awhile but I haven't found a post about someone having the same problem as me. Even if someone has a broken lego casing for the motor but there electrics still work I could be interested in that as well. Thanks, -RailCo
  2. I'll call LEGO customer service in the morning (actually later today, yes I am up late ). Hoping someone here has a quick fix. I have a new EV3 brick with rechargeable battery. Recharged the battery while attached to the brick, the brick was initially on, then auto-powered off about half way through. Now, the brick will not turn on - the center button does not move nor can it be depressed - no 'click' when pressed, left/right up/down back buttons all 'click' as normal. Any thoughts on how to reset or what's up. I get the same result regardless if rechargeable or AA alkaline batteries are used.
  3. Did any one even play it any more. I remember it being F2P, so I think this might be a reason its failing I need one more fig to finish the game and then I went to log in and it said I needed to pay to play. The fact that lego made a game free that you need to buy the figs was ok. But then they go and surprise us with it being pay to play the game and buy figs. I think that turned every one off. (the other thing that bugged me was they reset all the progress I made when I was in the closed beta so it "would be fair to new players" as the lego rep told me) EDIT Oh its being discussed in the rumors topic I see. Can staff just merge it if this is unneeded
  4. George and Steven sneak in to the Brathmor slave camp to free the slaves. Thought i would try my hand at something new. Inspired by Nick Runia's work. Should i revisit Castle at a later time?
  5. Hey all, I haven't had the pleasure of browsing these forums as much as I would like, but I do stop in periodically to post the occasional creation. Here is my latest vignette, an entry for the MOCOlympics over on MOCpages. The category for this round was "apocalypse now" in which I was required to build the 4 horsemen of the apocalypse. This is my take on the category. Enjoy! Have a great day, -Blake More pictures can be found on the MOCpage: The Four Horsemen by Blake's Baericks, on Flickr
