Red X on PFD of NGX

Recommended Posts

Today I wanted to do a flight but I noticed that a red X appears on the PFD, I know it appears when you press the test button on the TCAS but I didn't press the button and it is like that on every one of the 737s I tried everything to get it off but I can't seem to figure out what went wrong can some please help me with this.7030259387_5fa2a2c648_z.jpg

Hello, Your question is a bit ambiguous, you start off by saying "I wanted to do a flight" but your screenshot shows you are in flight at 35000ft and your ND shows a flight route. Without knowing the answer to the red cross I would suggest you inadvertantly did something without knowing that caused this. Cant say any more. richard welsh.

The reason I still did the flight was because it did not affect the navigation or anything like that it just appeared and wont go away.

These are TCAS RA symbology... I wonder why it's stuck on for you... Did re-loading the aircraft solve this?
Nope I also tried restarting my computer but nothing worked so far.

Hmm... That is very odd. Is your TCAS even on?
Yes its on TA/RA even when I turn it off the X is still there and when press the test button the four icons that usually show up on the NAV display don't show up anymore.

Interesting... Have you tried running the repair part of the NGX installer?

Maybe try loading a new panel state through the FMC? I would load cold and dark and then pre-set one. Maybe its just a glitch when there was a plane near you.

I had a similar problem too.Have you by any chance made edits to the panel.cfg of the aircraft ?I did at one point to move my FSAcars window around, and by accident deleted a section in the panel.cfg that was branded as "logic" or something alike. It's one of the last gauges in the list.So be careful, there are references in the panel.cfg file to "logic gauges" which should NOT be touched or altered at all, or your PFD (and probably other things) will go bananas.Have a look at this topic I started back then, and especially the last post were I explain the solution with the panel.cfg in more details:http://forum.avsim.net/topic/356821-red-marking-on-pfd-what-does-it-mean

I am having the same problem, but only in P3D V2, in FSX it was not seen. I have only p3D on my system now I have done a complete reinstall after cleaning all traces of the PMDG 737 a couple of times and the problem still persists. Guess will have to wait for the PMDG 737 for P3D V2 to come out!

Same issue here. Like Richard, this just started happening with Prepar3D v2. I didn't have the issue in v1. It doesn't seem to adversely affect the operation of the aircraft, but it would be nice to get it figured out.

It happens in P3D v2 because NGX isn't supported for P3D v2 (or v1 for that matter).

I read somewhere, that the red cross in the PFD indicates, that the NGX is in some sort of 'test-mode'... 

 

I would try to uninstall the PMDG NGX and remove ALL traces of it - then reinstall it...

 

If that doesn't help, submit a ticket to PMDG... :)

Not officially supported perhaps, but it's certainly compatible. I've been flying with it without a problem since Prepar3D first came out.

 

I'll mess around with it some more and do a clean install as Anders suggests. I'll report back if I figure anything out.

If you do a google on this you will find that it occurs when installed in P3D, there needs to be a dll file/entry and registry entry to remove it. Some user's have had success most haven't, PMDG make mention on their website that it is not licensed for P3D and is in breach of the EULA that comes with the product.

Hello all!

I found a solution on Youtube.

After loading the aircraft and the airport from witch you want to start (just after clicking OK), you just have to click on the square beside the cross on the upper right corner of the screen in order to get P3D windows in normak size while loading.

After that, you will see the 737 PFD without any red bar and then you will be able to get the P3D window in full screen size. B)
