Hello!

 

After updating to the latest version, the FMC MESSAGE appears on the EICAS. I pushed recall and nothing...

No messages in FMC.

 

Appreciate your help.

Also check the FMC COMM page for any pending downloads.

Thanks for replying.

This is happening after installing the last update and when loading a flight from Cold and Dark. I´m unable to erase the FMS MESSAGE on the EICAS. No pending downloads, No messages in FMC.

The only solution for now is pushing CANC.

Delete the panel state and create a new one. That or wait for a little while and we'll have an update with updated panel states.

I updated this morning to 3.00.8466, and I’m now noticing that possibly only LONG and SHORT were updated. 

If we desire to use cold and dark, is the procedure to delete the original one, load up one of these updated panel states, then create our own cold and dark?

Thanks!

I noticed they have updated panel states too: Long & Short. I updated them and tried the Long one instead of the Cold and Dark but unfortunately I´m having the same FMC MESSAGE + CAUTION message. I will try the Short sate in my next flight and see.

 

As Kyle said, meanwhile you can manually delete the panel state and create a new one.

 

I´m posting a screenshot.

Are you having problems with the Cold and Dark?

Yours is a separate issue. Look at your displays. You're partially powered, so you're misconfigured. Of course the plane is going to give you a warning. That's the point of the warning.

mmm... Can you check my screenshots. The aircraft is now ready to taxi and is full configured. what´s wrong? This didn´t happen before.

I had the phantom FMC Message warning on the EICAS during my first flight after the update, while using the default cold and dark. I tried forcing an FMC message, but that was no help. Since then I repaired my installation from the latest build, and then re-downloaded the latest updates from the OC. I can not reproduce the phantom message again and everything is running beautifully. I’m guessing my “original” cold and dark wasn’t so original. 

So on my end, it’s all good in the hood.

Same here with 3.00.8464 - Looks like 8466 did not fix that FMC message bug. I wait for an other update...

Everything from cold & dark works fine, instead of GSX pushback (It says that I need clearance) and the FMC message.

Addons -> FS2Crew, GSX and ActiveSky (maybe that helps...)

I am experiencing the same issues and tried all the same"fits" with no results.  Still showing FMC Message with the Caution light on.

Thanks.

today I got the 'false' FMC MESSAGE on EICAS during approach using my own panel state based on default one.

It seems I am not getting any false "fmc message"- announcements any more, however my EICAS only says "FMC" now (instead of "FMC MESSAGE") when advising an message on the fmc...

I deleted all custom panel states. All used panel states are based on the default ones . So something seems to be definitley wrong since the last update....

Had the same issue, loaded default panel state then powered it down to long state then saved it, that has solved it for me.

Check this threat:

The work-around explained by Chris Makris (Olympic260) works for me!

"The correct way to do it is  with captain's CDU on POS INIT page, turn on the IRS's and wait until yellow "FMC" appears on EICAS. Scratchpad displays "SET IRS POSITION" which disappears when position is entered. EICAS "FMC" message also clears."

 

it works for me. But only with an New Cold and Dark from the default Panel State. the Old Cold and Dark won't work....

This was announced in other posts earlier: cold & dark, short and long panelstates are corrupt, and for some reason there is no way to fix this by PMDG...

Only work-around is save your own panelstates starting from the default one.

Lucky us that the default is not (yet) corrupt ...
