CDU2 Menu Request- MD-11

Recommended Posts

I have a CDU2 Menu Request message as im enroute JFK now. I have searched the manual and have got no where. What does this mean?Also I had a DFDR off message a bit ago but cant seem to find it now. If anyone can help me figure out what that is also it would be much appreciated!Shawn Fitts

DFDR is just your Digital Flight Recorder. I seems to start collecting data sometime during flight prep, before taxi.Never seen a CDU2 message though. Are you using two FMS computers or just one? I only use the one, so I've not seen any messages.Yeah, I see it in the search too. Odd, since I don't do anything with the other FMS either.

Most messages will appear in the scratchpad of both FMC's. Clearing one will also vlear the other.

The MSG's arent causing the CDU2 message. What causes them is that one of the FMC's are still on its INIT page. Just click FMC and it clears up.
