Default Pendolino only reverses

Hi I purchased a DCC fitted Somerset Belle with track and a DCC fitted Virgin Pendolino for my autistic son for Christmas. We are totally newbies to train sets.
The Somerset Belle runs fine in both directions however the pendolino only works in reverse. Is there something we are doing wrong or is the train faulty and if so what can we do e.g. get decoder replaced ? ( It is too late to return as train was bought through auction site four months ago).

Default Re: Pendolino only reverses

Welcome Ejay

Are these the Hornby units? Can you hear the Pendolino trying to reverse or is it dead in that direction? One thing you could try is to pull the decoder from the SB and try it in the pendolino and see if that helps. If nothing else it would eliminate one possible problem.
