Unfortunately, the images that you have posted do not really provide much information, other than the aircraft is attempting to load the script for the Cold and Dark panel state.  So, I take it the panel state has been loaded but you are continuously getting flashing light on the overhead associated with flight deck alarms?  not know what operating system you are running, one is unable to suspect if it may have been a Windows 10 update that may be the causal factor of your problem(s)

Yes it is Windows 10 and i dont think it is windows update cause i dont have any since 17/10 and it was working fine.

The pics are after the init has been done successfully. After i open the batteries the lights on the top of the overhead are going wild (HYD lights) and when the screens are initialised on the electrical panel i see that the HYD needles are going crazy up and down.

I will try to upload a video.

I had exactly the same problem, and yes, there was an update yesterday, a massive one (took almost an hour to install). Just uninstall and reinstall the Dash, all problems will be sorted.

Yes that's the cure with win10 - reinstall - spend more time tweaking than flying, all my payware would not run - CTD'S.

why is it that it only seems to be us flight simmers that get caught out with win 10 updates.

spent half a day going back to earlier image backup (10 days) and then  using google to stop the win10 updates being installed again. Microsoft must think we are all computer gurus to stop the updates or just let win10 ruin every thing.

hope something is done about it

The only solution for this at this time is either to roll back the update 9do that at your own risk), or reinstall the Q400 (better option and less of a hassle).  Be sure to make a back up of any changes you have made to your mjc84.ini and or aircraft .cfg.

 

 

Cheers
