Hello all,

I'm having difficulty with the PSS 777 in VNAV mode. I've set up the FMC completely, confirmed multiple times that the flightplan, Initial Reference, etc are correct, and still the VNAV will not function.

After takeoff, I tried to engage it, and it just held the altitude I was currently flying at, didn't climb, didn't descend. I know of another avid PSS 777 simmer that has had this issue also, so if anyone has any clues or tips to help, I'd appreciate it.

Thanks a lot in advance,
Noah

I tried countless times to get that POS, I mean PSS 777 to work. So many things go wrong with it I couldn't be bothered anymore.

PMDG is making a 777. Can't wait for that!

Make sure the MCP altitude is set to your step altitude, or your cruise alt. Does the CDU display a message saying "Reset MCP Alt"?

Yeah, I made sure it was set to the cruise altitude on departure. On the arrival descent, it never gave me an indication of RESET MCP ALT. I've had that message before though.

Ok. I've had that happen a few times in the 737 full flight sim, too. It's something I'm not thinking of. It's very intuitive when you see it, but when I'm not sitting in front of it, it's hard to imagine. You had a cruising alt selected in the FMC, right? I presume you did, but just figured I'd ask. If you haven't figured it out by Monday, I'll hop in the sim and figure out if there's anything I can point out that may help. I know a 73 is not the same as a 77, but a Boeing is a Boeing and the logic is largely the same.

I suspect it's something to do with the way that the PSS 777 is designed. The Level D 767 never gives me issues.

I'll try another flight tomorrow with it, and see if I can figure out the issue.

I appreciate the help!
