HX screens flash a black screen

Post by scooter »

I have a dual HX system and since new, occasionally each screen will occasionally show what looks like one black screen while running normally. I see it on both screens - independent of map, pfd engine etc.

Any one else seen this? Don't see anything searching.

This is a known issue with HX display units that use an older graphics processor. The screen will update with a completely black frame every once in a while. It's an issue with the graphics driver that we have not tracked down yet.

Jeff, I would be curious to know what you consider "older units" Mine are from mid to late 2009, would they be included?

I have a 3 HX setup running v5d. I've seen screen flashes a couple of times while in flight, but only on any screen running the PFD. It's momentary and always refreshes right after. No crashes or reboots. My S/N are all in the 90's.

Regards,
Jay

Definitely anything older than mid 2011.
