Recommended Posts

My 747-8 will not engage the reversers and also doesn't have Datalink as an option. Anyone have any ideas?

Not yet I haven’t but for example, after landing I try to engage reversers but they do not engage, when I try to open the dlink page, nothing happens.

I watched it, but there were not answers to my problem.

Absolutely were...

If you follow what I did in the video, it's literally impossible to not get into Datalink's functions.

RTE Page: Origin (ICAO: 4 Letter, e.g. KIAD); Destination (ICAO: 4 Letter, e.g. EDDF); Flight Number (ICAO: 3 Letter plus number, e.g. DLH418)

Then go to the center CDU, DLINK: Fill in the data requested (noted by the fields showing [ ] ).

Done.

I don't believe that you're following along properly, or perhaps understanding what is supposed to happen. I'll need a screenshot, or written, step-by-step instructions from you to verify.

Step 1: Load plane in "747 short" panel state. Step 2: Complete Pos Init page, Enter departure icao, Enter arrival icao, enter flight number. Step 3: return to main menu of FMC. Step 4: press "acars" on the fmc. After I press acars, nothing happens. It acts as if i didn't even press the button.

This is where I think things are going astray. If I remember correctly, you need to use the center CDU to log on to  DLink, rather than try to sign in to ACARS on one of the pilots' CDUs. Also remember that all the DLink items in brackets need to be filled in before it automatically logs on.

I was able to open the menu and get all the information into the FMC, but the airline code won't go into the brackets and won't let the datalink connect. Any Ideas?

Yeah... that‘s a bit... well... weird.

flight number: ICAO code of airline. Lufthansa —> DLH

Airline code in acars: IATA

Lufthansa —> LH (2 letters)
