Just a few questions;1: Do you have power turned on, ground power, APU, etc.2: Have you aligned your IRS correctly.3: Can't think of any reasons why you can not see your beacon. You are viewing the plane in external view right?I would suggest sending an email to PMDG's support email address, and maybe giving them more details than this, and not forgetting to quote your PC specs, as this is very important to problem solving.Hope you get sorted with this Mike,Cheers,

Hi Mike,Your displays may be black for a number of reasons:1) You have a display failure set in the PMDG Options menu. Make sure it is cleared.2) You have improperly powered up your aircraft. Please consult the manual for the correct procedures.3) Your product is not properly validated. If this is the case, please contact PMDG customer support at support@precisionmanuals.com.As for the beacon, please ensure that in Options>Display>Hardware, you have "hardware rendered lights" set to 8.Best,Vin ScimonePMDGwww.precisionmanuals.comhttp://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/forum/devteam.jpg
