PDCS not working

Can't get the PDCS system to function.  Airspeed  and EPR cursors don't move when hitting engage button.  Only seem to be able to get the CRT to display the TO EPR setting correctly...all other flight mode EPR & airspeed/Mach numbers are bogus.

I believe I'm entering data correctly...however the manual refers to "Supplementary Procedures" pages for programming and operating the system.  Can't find these pages in the manuals provided.

Please advise how to get the Supplementary Procedures and get the system working correctly.

Thanks.

The PDCS can only be used as a guide to the settings you need to use, it has never changed any of the aircraft settings, like the Airspeed, or EPR settings for the flight. Sad

Thanks Mark,

I found the following in the KB:

"Q: The PCDS when set to T/O and after entering the OAT, the Engage button does not set the EPR gauges. Also EPR will not return to Auto when manually setting power using the button on each EPR.
A: The issue has been addressed in the SP 1.802/2.202. Please download and install the latest version.

From: 737 Captain (FSX/SE/P3D) / On the list for next SP (QID 8116)"

I note it referes to a version 2.202...I have 2.200 but do not see a 2.202 update avalable...where would I find that update? Sad

Thanks,

The 2.202 update has not been released, and I have no idea when it will be. Undecided

Note. To check on the latest update, go to the 737 Captain product page > Sim Ops > The 737 Updates
Captain Sim will also anounce it on the their main website when it's released.
