Cold and Dark

Recommended Posts

I had to reinstall my 737 NGX because I was having troubles with the parking brake not disengaging.  Now, I cannot remember what menu I need to open to select cold and dark on startup.  I cannot find it in the tutorials either. HELP!

Pages 0.00.45 and 0.00.46 in introduction manual. Btw, your posts should be signed by pmdg forum rules.

I do not see the aircraft load state prompt in my fmc.


Good grief...I found it...I'm not awake yet this morning and I need coffee BAD!

Look at FMC, press MENU, then press RSK4, then RSK4 again, and then select cold and dark state.

While we're on the topic, thought I'd ask this before the 777 comes out.  Had the following problem in the NGX but never had the inclination to actually ask and 'fix' it.

 

How do you set up and save a new Cold & Dark panel state after you change some of the company options like using LBS to KGS for example?  What I mean is, I want to start the NGX in a C&D state with my own company options.  So I go ahead and change the company options, and power down the aircraft (including battery).  But now I can't save the panel in that state because the FMC-CDU is also blank.

 

So how does one create a new Cold & Dark startup state?

 

Thanks,

Subin.

Customer options (e.g. lbs - kgs switch) , and panel state are two different features of NGX. There is no need to save customer option. If you want to save cold and dark panel state, you have to hold MENU button of CDU and it will power up. 

 

Btw, all of this is covered in introduction manual, all of you really should read it.

you have to push the Menu button on the CDU for a couple of seconds. You can then access the PMDG Menu to save a new Cold and Dark Setup.

Just another thought - the "short turn" panel state has chocks engaged - which shows up as parking brake in the little red box at the bottom. It was driving me mad, not being able to disengage the parking brake in the usual way, until I looked at the outside view and saw the chocks! Chocks are removed in the "ground connections" section of the CDU

This is why users should read the ngx  introduction manual, would have saved time and effort  instead of  re installing  which most likely  could make things  worse

Every question in this thread is answered by reading the 'Introduction Manual'. When will people learn... :unsure:
