VISION Line Challenger Backup Battery Problem Notification
Products affected by this notice:
6-11210 Union Pacific Black Challenger Coal Fired #3967
Lionel is aware of the issues pertaining to the premature draining of the 9 Volt battery in the recently released VISION Line Challengers. We are currently working on a solution to resolve this issue and will release our plans to rectify this problem in the near future.
In the meantime, we have developed a simple “work around” to prevent your 9 Volt battery from draining prematurely. If you do not use the backup battery this notice does NOT apply to you.
By implementing this work around the battery will go through its proper shut down sequence and keep the sounds alive whenever the tender collectors lose contact with the center rail during normal operations.
We apologize for the inconvenience this creates for our valued VISION Line customers. We want to assure you that we are working as diligently as possible to develop a painless resolution for you.
If you haven’t done so already, please be sure to register your VISION LineChallenger online at http://www.lionel.com/visionline/registration.html.
Once your locomotive is registered you will be among the first to receive information on how we will be correcting this issue.
