"MSG" Stuck mid-flight + Can't type in scratchpad

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

 

This might be an issue that has already been reported, but I coudn't find it so here it goes.

Today on my flight back to Amsterdam I was entering the step-climbs as I normally do. But at one point the "Not enough fuel" message kept popping up every single time I entered a letter. Even though there was enough fuel...

So after getting rid of that message by cheating a little I coudn't type into FMC1 anymore. It's stuck. By mouse and by keyboard.

Fun thing is that the FMC actually just works, but I can't type anything.

 

Regards,

The fuel message is triggered by the amount you enter on the PERF page in the reserves field, and has nothing to do with how much is "enough fuel."

Is the FO CDU scratchpad locked up?

Is it not! Not a big problem, because I can use that one, but you could imagine that it's a little annoying.

Is your addon up to date? And how do you load the airplane? (Load the sim, not fuel/payload) what airplane turns in the preview window when you start p3D and have you set any panel states as default?

Facing this problem right now! I can still use the F/O side FMC but can't type anything into the Captain's FMC. Just departed on a long haul flight so I don't really want to end the flight. Has anyone found a simple solution to this? Never faced this problem before. Up to date PMDG 777 (1.10.8414) and loaded the panel state from "777 Short". 

Edit: Saved and reloaded, works again.
