Autopilot button 8 on saitek switch panel won't stay on?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys

I have been programming the autopilot on the B737 NGX and all the functions Hdg,Nav,Ias, Etc. wook ok but I can' t keep the Autopilot CMD button on. It lights up when I press it then goes out as soon as I release it.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thx, Tom

Hi Tom

 

Try keeping LINDA open in the background with the Saitek switch panel page selected. I don't know why (yet) but for some buttons, LINDA can cycle (toggle) the expected action.

Hi, I have fsx,Linda, and spad all running and displayed while trying to set autopilot. I have tried autopilot cmd toggle on/off, autopilot on, and autopilot off. I am using the 737 ngx settings. It tried the autopilot on and off with the use fsx also. Light blinks but does not stay on.

On the assumption that the Autopilot CMD button works correctly within the 737 simulation (using the mouse), try assigning the functions to another joystick button that appears in the top 5 lines in LINDA. As I mentioned, there appears to be an anomaly when LINDA is working with higher order buttons (ie. above 6).

Hi

Just shut down everything and restarted. This time all is ok so far.

Thanks so much for the comeback.

Take care & have a great day.

Hi

Just did a reboot. Some reason worked after that. Still having trouble with buttons staying on. Will try different Lower buttons as suggested.

Take care, Tom
