FMC message on eicas for no reason

Recommended Posts

 hi folks

 

After a complet reinstall of windows and all pmdg and fsx  products reinstalled, at my first flight as KAL53, i get a FMC message on  eicas while there is nothing wrong on fmc. It seems like and old issue that i recall discusing  before service packs were out...

 

Any body has an idea ?

thanks

If it happens constantly then that would be annoying.

 

But if it was only once then I would disregard it.

Note that the message is in white. White messages don't mean "problem." Yellow and red messages indicate problems, so there's no reason to assume something is wrong with a function if it's displayed in white (else, "CABIN READY" would be a problem as well).

 

The *FMC on the EICAS means "pay attention to the FMC." The FMC scratchpad will have a message displayed on it that you probably just clicked CLR for without reading it (else you wouldn't have needed to post this thread).

 

Usual times this gets displayed:

  • ROUTE import prompts
  • PERF import
  • WIND import
  • DES FORECAST import; and (most likely for periodic *FMC displays)
  • ALTN LIST UPDATES

I posted all of the other options it could be. You only mentioned you covered a couple of them, so it was probably one of the others. Regardless, if you're unsure of why it's there, go to the FMC COMM page and it'll tell you.

aaaaah that FMC message, lol....what was I thinking.

 

Got my head in too many things at the same time.....VAS test to KLAX, installing Win 7 on my my Laptop (upgraded to an SSD), and trying to answere forums.

It had to go wrong somewhere.
