I have no power to the ACP, DCP and MSP? Everything else works fine?

Please help...

Thanks!

Aaron,

 

We don't normally look for power on these 3 control units as such. Can you not flip the YD switch on the AP or can you not turn any of the knobs on the DCP? I really have never seen any power indicator on the baro knob or the menu knob or on the three switches. As for the MSP, all you can ever expect to see is a little white light illuminate on the push button when active. Try dialing up at new target altitude from the ACP using the ALT knob and then look at the MSP and see the ALT button (upper right) has the small light on.

 

I normally look at the top center of the PFD to see what is active. Anything active will be shown in green, items selected are in white (but not always).

 

Best Regards,

 

Ray

Wondering if it is in P3D or FSX or both?

 

Also, could the default aircraft / flight in use cause a problem?

Sorry about the shortage of details...i can turn all the knobs but nothing changes. ie heading bug does not move, altitude does not change. Radio stack is all black, no display working. When click on buttons on msp nothing happens. When i use SHIFT3 the msp flashes then disappears. Hope that helps...maybe a bad install?

Thanks all

Yes, that sounds very different from "everything else works fine".

 

Did you try Shift+8 and select 'Ready for Taxi' for a self start? If that does not crank everything up then I would go for the reinstall.

 

Regards.

Are you using P3D (which version?)  or FSX or both?

 

What is your default aircraft / flight?

 

Which version of Windows OS?

Aaron,

 

We haven't seen this before with the CJ2. With a 2nd reinstall not working I would first try the default aircraft startup first. You have not told us whether you are using FSX or P3D V?. If FSX you can try the Cessna 172, P3D uses a different startup aircraft so use that one if you are using P3D.

 

Should that not correct the problem I sugguest you download the Flight1 Complex Aircraft and load that up. There are some specific instructions on how to use it but it is very flexible and I had a similar problem getting the F1 Mustang started a few years ago. It ended up being a simconnnect problem or something out of the ordinary. - not totally related to the specific aircraft.

 

Keep trying, it will be worth it.

Also, which OS is he using would be helpful.

I just tried the 172 and everything works great. I have the Embraer 300 and it works great with the GNS 750. Wass thinking of installing Window 10 but a little nervous!

Windows 10 is not listed, that is my bad. To excited to read the fine print! Hopefully something will work with the Carenado ticket I submitted. I'm using SP1 & SP2 but no acceleration.

I just tried my Embraer 300 and it is exactly the same. None of the functions like FD, ALT, NAV, etc work. When mouse goes over button nothing changes to click button.

Did you have the Embrare 300 (is it Carenado) working prior ..?

 

Did you just upgrade your OS from Win7 to Win8?

I have the Embraer 300 from Carenado before and it worked fine. Now that I have installed the 525 it does not work. Computer came with Windows 8.

Good Day everyone,

Just got the fix from Carenado, uninstall/reinstall with no antivirus then reinstalled FSX SP2. I did this and it works great.

 

Next question: In spot plane view the aircraft is a skeleton, any help on fixing that?

Cheers,

Aaron Sharp

Aaron,

 

What FIX did you get from Carenado? and when?

 

Yes. Set up the keyboard for an Aircraft (reload). Takes about 5 seconds to correct the problem. This showed up on the Carenado Phenom 300 when I was testing it for the Avsim review and I posted some screenshots and the simple correction in that review. Except, it wasn't the Spot View, it was the main view when I loaded it.

 

I have also seen this with the Flight1 Mustang and the Aircraft (reload) cures that one also.

 

I think this is normally set up as Crtl + Shift + R using the drop down Options/Settings/Controls/Buttons-Keys/ command in FSX.

 

Regards,

 

Ray
