MSG light but no message + scratchpad locked on L FMC

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

 

First off a big cudos to you! A real treat this aircraft simulation. Have to say from the early NG up to now the evolution in making it possible to fly a complex a/c in the confines of FS single pilot operation is super.

 

Secondly, en route to TNCM now and I encountered a little issue.

At a certain point, don't ask me when because I only noticed it a few minutes ago, I noticed the MSG light was on on FMC/CDU 1, I looked it up in the FCOM and it's supposed to only light up when there is a scratchpad message for me to read. So went into the FMC 1 system on my CDU1 though no message to be found and strangely enough, no longer able to enter data in the scratchpad (both via keyboard entry or via the mouse)

attached a small view of the problem though it is self explanatory.

I can however still use CDU2 for data entry (and the Central CDU works too)

 

Maybe I missed something so if this is the case please enlighten me, after all I am an airbus driver so maybe I got some things mixed up here!

 

Best regards

Lenny

I've had this happen  to me a few times too, never figured out what was going. I only assumed cause I was just messing around testing things it was related to that.

and also small update. After landing, without resetting FSX, the problem solved itself?
