FMC remains cold and dark

Recommended Posts

Sometimes (like today) the FMC of my 737NG remains cold and dark after switching the master battery on. All displays are lit, but not the FMC. It doesnot matter if I use ground power, the APU generator of even start the engines. Can anybody help?Hans HartveltThe Netherlands

Yes sir, standby power is the standard setting. I also tried other settings of this knob, but it doesnot help. I can see that the dark screen lights up a little when I engage the instrument lighting, so you should say that there is current to the FMC, but no text appears.

As a learning point for other simmers:I recently reinstalled FS9.1 with all its components. I had a problem reinstalling the 737NG due to an error message related with the font lucon.ttf. So I removed this font and the installation was a piece of cake. But since there was no text visible on the FMC I remembered this installation problem and thought that the FMC might use this font. So I removed the font back and YES !!!
