Try it on your normal APB. If that doesn't do the trick then you may well have a dead...ish chip.

Right ..... no short-circuits. Can you ID a car and run it on the APB without any track attached?

Try the controller in a different slot. When you start the APB, the Red & Green LEDs light up and stay on - no other lights should be showing. Press & hold the Enter button until the green LED flashes. At this point press the brake button on the controller - only the RED representing the controller and the Red & Green LEDs should flash. The controller LED should extinguish and the other two remain steady.

Try it without the Tower .....

Hmmm ....... nasty.

OK .... try a different throttle and no tower. The APB might think that it is in the middle of setting up a race - removing the tower should stop that.

Not ucked, maybe just needing throttle calibration? If pressing the brake button makes it work then the system is reading the resistance incorrectly. It could still be uggered, bad joint inside or more likely it has calibrated on a bad throttle at some time, or set up wrong in China. Fit the tower and run thru the calibration routine, if it still doesn't work ring the Scalextric cuustomer care and tell them it is new, and not functioning and that you want a replacement. They will probably want you to send it in to be sure you are not just pulling a fast one.
