Cannot activate Phenom MFD

Recommended Posts

Greetings, 

 

   I thought I would take the Phenom 100 out for a spin after completing my 2.5 load, and while the aircraft loads fine, I cannot activate the primary (center) MFD. Cold and dark works fine, I can spin up the engines, but no MFD.

 

   When I click on either the rightmost button or ENT I get a momentary flash of the normal display, but then it reverts to the Startup display, the one that says this, that, and the other thing has expired. This is also true for the Shift + 2 display.

 

   Anybody else seen this? I reloaded the aircraft, and also disabled instrument reflections per the "P3D User Readme" suggestion, but still nothing works. 

 

   Thought I would ask "unoffcially" before I sent a request off to Chile.

 

   Thanks!

Hi,

 

I never have experienced this. Don't have a clue as to what would cause that. The MFD always comes on when I turn on a battery.

 

Sorry, no help I know.

Hi Jim, 

 

Perhaps to clarify: The MFD does indeed come on when I turn on the battery - I cannot get it to exit the setup screen (the one with the aircraft picture).

Hi John,

 

What happens when you try to activate the MFD by pressing the Ent button or far right Soft Key?  Does your mouse pointer turn into a hand so that you can select them?

Heya Jim, 

 

Yup, everything works as intended, and when I click ENT the "correct" view flashes but reverts to the startup screen.

 

I think an email into Chili is in order...

Hey John,

 

Yeah, I think you need to bring Carenado in on this. This is a strange one. Have you tried to do a completely new download? I know you said your reloaded the plane but does that mean a new download?

 

Good luck.

 

Jim
