TBM 850 V2 FMS Keyboard Not Functioning

Recommended Posts

I can't seem to get the alphanumeric keys on the FMS keyboard to function.  The other keys (FFP, Direct-to, etc.) and knobs all function and bring up the appropriate windows in the MFD but none of the alphanumeric keys function and so I am unable to enter data using the keyboard.  I am using the TBM 850 version 2 in P3dv4.  Any suggestions? BTW, I have "reflections" turned off in P3dv4 as I read somewhere that the reflections could cause problems with certain click spots.

Thanks!

John

John,

What you heard is not the simulator reflections, it is the virtual cockpit instruments reflections. These are a feature of Carenado planes, normally the Carenado plane settings can be accessed hitting SHIFT + 6 or 8.

In there you can setup if you want a cold and dark start up and if you want VC instruments reflections turned on, this setting is per Carenado plane.

Regards,

Simbol

Thanks, Simbol.  I appreciate the guidance.  I de-activated "reflections" using the Carenado panel (shift+5) to no avail.  Still can not get the alphanumeric keys to work.
