757 instrument lights?

Postby fredsie » Sun Nov 04, 2018 5:24 pm

Hi

Can anyone tell me how to turn on the lighting for the instrument panel? Obviously with autostart the LCD panels like the horizon and FD come on, but I cannot see altimeter, airspeed etc at night.

Thanks

Fred

In the lower left of the overhead panel on the captain's side you'll find two knobs with inner/outer ring, turning them gives the neccesary illumination.

Perfect! Many thanks Flyngo.

I don't suppose there's an easy way to turn them down again? In fact I have this issue with a number of the controls - clicking with the mouse increases a value (e.g. nav heading) but I can't fathom how to turn them back lower. Is there a trick for this?

Try middle mouse button klick.
Or, some knobs have hotspots above and below the knob (or left and right of it) only for left mouse button.
You can see klickable items if you press 'ctrl-c'.

Yes, it's the middle button. Thanks!
