Just prior to TOD (Top of descent), the MCP altitude should be set to your minimin altitide like 200 or something.Otherwise the autopilot will not desend below what you have set in the MCP.so before reaching TOD if you don't lower your MCP altitude. It will not descend.I think.Manny

Thanks for replying Manny.However I have the autopilot altitude set to 3000 feet before TD, and the aircraft begins descending ok.I only get the message (Check MCP ALT) during descent.Tony.
