Altimeter and Flap settings Error

Recommended Posts

In the attached photo will see that my main altimeter setting is 22.15 which results in a negative altitude reading. I have tried several times to press the reset button and change it manually using the knob, all times with no effect on the reading. However my backup Altimeter is reading correctly at 29.92. Also my flap setting indicator is showing 30, but my flaps are fully retarcted and in the up position. I have applied full power to plane and the results have been unchange.

 

Please Help!

 

Thanks!

Hello,

 

Have you checked weather settings within FSX? Maybe you have a rogue pressure setting in advanced weather?

 

I see the IRS is aligning which tells me you're in a cold and dark cockpit. From this, I would go out on a limb and say that something, somewhere, is not set correctly on the overhead panel. Maybe you could post something up there? I have a feeling the aircraft was also not shut down properly the last time, perhaps? This could be a reason for your flap indication. Is AUX Hydraulic pressure 4 set to aux? Perhaps there's simply a confusion in system logic.

 

An overhead panel shot along with HYD/ELEC EICAS would be useful.

 

Feel free to PM if this becomes a bit long or you wish to ask anything else.

 

Best,

Dan
