B757/B767 Instrument Panel?

Thu Aug 29, 2002 1:16 am

What's the purpose of two lights/buttons/switches located between standby horizon and EICAS CANCEL & RECALL pushbuttons?

The CANCEL button removes any caution or advisory messages on the upper display. The RECALL button allows you to view cautionary and advisory messages that are still applicable.

The CANCEL switch (momentary action), when pushed will:

- Remove currently displayed caution and advisory messages and the page number from view.
- Display the next page, if any, of alert messages.

The RECALL switch (momentary action), when pushed will:

- Redisplay the first page of cancelled caution and advisory messages, if the associated fault still exists.

He is talking about the 2 white squares mounted vertical to one another. They are located between the Stby Att Ind and the Cancel/Recall Switches.
Those are Auto Bright Sensors. They sense when cokcpit conditions are too bright and brighten the annunciator lights when they are in the dim position.

Ah, my mistake. Cdfmxtexh is correct, they are the "Indicator Light Autobright System Sensors". Their function is as described.

Cdfmxtech:

You're right. Guess I should read posts a little more closely. Or try not to reply to them after a ten hour midnight shift.  Smile
