I tried out my Lenz 100 with a similar system we have at my local railway group last night and it appears there is a problem with the power unit - Lenz LZV 100, as the one at the group works ok with my hand unit but the power unit doesnt.
I phoned up the importers this morning and they agreed with what I said, so its gone in the post to them today for repair and update.
Ive had it 5 years and its the first fault so cant complain
Know what you mean Herb, Ive posted it off today, with a plea to get it back to me before the next time I really need it about 10 May.
Meanwhile Im going to buy a s/h unit either a Lenz 90 or another Lenz 100 off Ebay as back up
I like Lenz very much
Well ive just won a bid on ebay for a Lenz 90 complete and brand new set up. This includes the hand controller, LVZ 90 plus the all important Lenz LVZ 100 control unit. Once my repaired LVz 100 is back I will have a great system with back up.
I love Lenz - its so easy
Latest update on my poorly Lenz 100, the UK importers have sent it back to Germany as its a large fault. That will be great actually, cos whilst its there it will be upgraded to version 3.06 - so I will end upwith a far more up to date unit. Once I get that back I will then send off my new Lenz 100 and have that upgraded too
To end this saga, I have today recieved a bill for the complete repair and upgrade of my Lenz 100 unit. Total repair and upgradeing costs, ie sending it to Germany etc - is £17:70 - x by 1.6 into US dollars.
Now that to me is excellent service and of course the original unit was about 8 years old.
Told you - I love Lenz
