Maybe one of the sensors was dirty?

First, the car needs track power to power up the IR LED... so fitting the SICH10 without electrical connection could never be expected to register laps in digital mode. For the test to be valid the car needs track power.


Next, if you are comparing with analog cars... sounds like you may have then switched the powerbase from digital to analog mode... for analog the track IR photosensor for ID is not used at all.
