Outcome.... I (Peter) was sure (based on the description) that Harry was missing something or using a video card that did not want to “play nice� with our CDU. Well... it was us... one of our techs opened the unit and found the display ribbon cable was loose enough that it was not able to work....

Hi All,

Was able to talk with Steve today who after a TeamViewer Session was able to determine that my CDU monitor is pooched. Will go to Newmarket next week and take the CDU to the FDS Hospital. At least I now know what the problem is.

Harry shoot me an email and we'll discuss. JB Hi JB...just got back from a 2 week holiday and saw your note. Any ideas that you may have will be welcomed. In all my trouble shooting the only different thing happening during the loading of the Sim A software is the 3 flashes and clicking noise that ...

This is a settings issue in Windows.... there are many combinations.... Screen resolution and refresh rates. The fact that you get the “no synch� message instantly tells us the display is working. Our test rig will fire this CDU up right away... Peter Peter...previous to the problem starting, t...

Harry Check your power supply for the CDU 12v dc I think, Like Steve said, also listen for the relay click when the CDU is switched on and off. If you are certain of signal output then there’s nothing else you can check. For signal output you can try connecting a spare working screen and you shou...

Do you hear the relay click when you go to tun on the screen? Yes, I hear the click when I turn on the screen. Harry, In the past when faced with this issue I have had to experiment with a range of Screen Resolution and Frequency settings to get the unit to play ball properly. I have one that works...

CDU Blank

After loading V 1.95 I ran a flight and everything appeared to work just fine. When I tried a flight later in the day I discovered that the screen on my CDU was totally blank. I reloaded v1.94 to see if 1.95 may have caused the problem but the same problem exists. Checked the Sys Board and the ID en...

Hi Mark, Unfortunately I did not see your reply in October but only viewed it today. After I upgraded to P3D v 4.4 a couple of months ago I thought the problem had disappeared but sure enough the last couple of times I tried the custom push back feature in Sim A, the a/c slowly went into the air lik...

Jack,

it wasn't the slew key causing the conflict...it was a double entry of the SHFT + P key. Once I removed that in P3D, the custom push back feature in the CDU is working just fine.

Custom Push Back Feature

Bill,

I had your problem in 1.85 and it was indeed quite something to watch the a/c fly all over the place. That's gone in 1.91 but it has been replaced by a slow climb after being pushed back about 25 feet from the gate.
