Blank GPS and no EFB tablet

Recommended Posts

I have been lucky through all the MSFS updates but finally service update 9 has broken my fav ,the chancellor 414 , after realizing that none of the GPS unit i have the default 530 or the pws gtn 750 will work they are just blank ,power button dosent work and previously it would just be on as i always just load up in the ready for takeoff state , the other thing is the EFB wont pop up and open any more , not sure if its supposed to be open at start up but its not and wont pop up , thinking these to are related , i had version 1.5 , updated to 1.9 after the sim update but that hasent helped , Sure hope i,m not the only one with this issue , I also have this problem with all my Carenado planes as well, hope that helps , praying for a solution or maybe a miraculous fix next beta update , cheers its a great plane

Do the default MSFS planes, like the DA-62 or C172 work Ok?  If you have any other payware planes besides Flysimware or Caenado, do they work OK?

And do you have the Steam or MS Store version of the sim?

Since a variety of planes from different developers seem to be having similar problems, I would expect you are having a sim problem rather than a plane related problem. It could be a conflict between files in your Community folder. You could try taking everything out of the Community folder and see if the default a/c work. If so, then add your other files back into the Community folder "one-by-one" until the problem reoccurs.

Or, if you have a lot of files in the Community folder, remove half of the files from the Community folder. If the problem is solved you know the conflict is with the removed files, or between a remaining file and a file that was removed. If the problem persists, remove half of the remaining files and see what happens, etc.

thanks for your input Ark , Turns out i had to update the PMS50 gtn750 , once i did that every things working , just weird that it affected the default gps530 unit, I guess cause those aircraft have both as a option to use in their code that the older pms50 version was blocking things , Happy i,m back to normal , boy some things never change with microsoft hope this info helps someone else
