Door Main Deck Cargo?

Recommended Posts

Getting this ECAM memo about "DOOR MAIN DECK CARGO" that I can't seem to solve. I read the intro manual and it suggested opening and closing the doors, which I did twice but to no avail. I then went to the failures menu to see if it wa a failure I needed to reset, but the option for MAIN DECK CARGO is greyed out as if it weren't modeled.

 

The ECAM actions for this item seem to be designed for discovering it in flight and aren't of much help on the ground.

 

Anyone else having this issue and know the workaround?

Loading from a panel state?

Yes, long turn I think...  :mellow:

 

That one shouldn't be causing issues...hmm...

 

What does the DOOR synoptic show?

Door page shows all doors armed and all cargo doors closed...  :mellow:

 

It may be pretty simple, but can you give me the steps to reproduce?  I'll take a look when I get home...

I can't remember the specifics, but basically, 2L,4L,1R,2R,4R and the three cargo hatches were all open, I closed all the doors using the key commands I assigned in the MCDU, then once they'd all closed this warning popped up.

I had this too.

 

Pressing Recall will clear it.  It's the only I've found that does.

Yeh, but recalling it and it'll still be there. The aircraft is pressurising properly, so it's not that the door is actually open.

 

It seems like something that just requires a CB reset, but they're not modeled  don't think. Anyone know which CB I should reset if they are in fact modeled?

Ró.

 

EDIT:

Just looked at the overhead and besides the fact that the CBs aren't modeled, the reset for the doors isn't even in the Flight Deck, so it's a trip to the Avionics Bay it looks like if you need to reset it. Oh well, guess that's not the issue anyways...  ^_^

Cleared it for me...  but there may be more than one cause of this.

 

I started in the default mode (everything up) and went to the Short State.  It may have been on a that time, I don't know because I wasn't paying attention.  But then I opened cargo doors for loading (GSX boarding), then buttoned up. That's when I noticed it.  Cycling the doors (cargo, cabin, etc) did not even make it blink.  It only cleared when I pressed recall.

Sorry, I didn't make my point very clearly. The "Recall" button is actaully "Cancle/Recall" so what you did I think is cancle the warning by pushing the Recall button, but had you pushed it again you'd have realised that all that happened was that the warning was hidden from the EWD and that the underlying fault was still there.

I FOUND THE ERROR!!!  :biggrin:

 

I have discovered exacty what the MAIN DECK CARGO DOOR actually is firstly:

2013-9-5_23-1-51-291_zpscd4bd2b1.png

 

And I realised that in the PAX model I had hit the assigned key command to open this door, but obviously it isn't modelled in the PAX model, so I think it registered as open, but then wouldn't let me close it because, well it doesn't exist, but the warning was still there.

 

Probably can be fixed by inhibiting the key command for that door when in the PAX model...

 

So, am I the first person to break the T7?  :biggrin:

Ró.

 

PS: Much thanks to Kriva for the livery...  :blush:

My bad, just swap it around: EWD to EICAS (?), ECAM Actions to ECL, MCDU to CDU...  etc... :rolleyes:  They're all just airplanes to me...  :wink:

I'm sure Kyle has passed the info on to the team and will be checking back here at some point, if he hasn't already.

 

Good to know though. Good job chasing it down.

I have same issue too.

 

See. All doors are closed. My panel state was Cold and Dark, then I opened doors for GSX and FSpassenger.

 

After boarding, I did close all doors.

 

Then I was to taxi. and I found this ECAS messege.

Yup, that was exactly the issue I was having. Try using the key command for closing the main cargo door and see if that solves it for you...

Had a similar door issue with assigning doors for the pax 744 and the cargo 744.

 

Glad you got it all sorted, Ro.

I hadn't - I was just tracking it myself until I could reproduce it and hunt down where it did and didn't occur to give the team as much info as possible (not that there wasn't enough as is, but sometimes pinning the issue down further helps some).

 

Now that I'm seeing a MAIN DECK CARGO warning on the passenger version, though...

I'm not sure, you'll have to check your settings in the PMDG menu in the FMC, I've mine set to CTRL+6, but that's not the default.
