Just a quick question what is shift+L assigned to? Aharon, what is it assigned to in your FSX settings?


for all lights such as headlights, all beacons, all headlights on wings and wheels, night logo tail light, and of course night passenger window light.

My best guess is that I must have missed any cockpit button or switch for battery OR light for passenger cabins. I think I turned on all kinds of batteries on cockpit panel but I might have missed a switch for night passenger window light if there is any.

Regards,

Aharon

Seeing as I mostly used FSX/Acceleration, and not FSX-SE (until  my power supply died and took out my 4TB HDD), I know the setting was the same in both:
SHIFT+L for Panel lights (on/off). FSX-SE setting shown in attached image.

I will return to mostly using FSX/Acceleration once I get a new power supply that will give me the wattage I need to be able to use my BluRay-RW again, and I can then reinstall it.

Looks like that may be the problem, Mark has shift+L set to “Panel Lights” where as Aharon, you have it set to all lights. Maybe check to see what shortcut you have for “Panel lights” and try that  Cheesy

Fingers crossed

DOH  DOH DOH DOH DOH

I use letter l for for all lights such as headlights, all beacons, all headlights on wings and wheels, night logo tail light, and of course night passenger window light BUT BUT BUT  I never try shift-l in my FSX. 

Got to go back to Captain Sim 707 and see if my FIRST TIME use of shift-l instead of letter l will make night passenger window light go on!!

DOH DOH DOH   Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked I thought both of you are talking about pressing letter l for lights not realizing I am supposed to use SHIFT-l.

Will let both know if using shift-l instead of letter l will work.

Special thanks to Markoz for showing me his chart to make me realize there is DIFFERENCE between pressing letter l and pressing shift-l.  Did not even know shift-l exists in FSX for panel lights!!!

And thanks to famous Nathan for pointing out to me DIFFERENCE

Regards,

Aharon

As far as I know, Shift + L is the default setting for panel lights, and not something I did for myself.

I think you will find that it does work. Maybe in my first reply I should have put Shift +L in bold letters, so it stood out better for you. Wink Grin

Not yet   I have NOT yet tested it using shift-l although I do hope you and Markoz pointing out HUGE difference in keyboard button between letter l button command and shift-l button command will work for night passenger window light!!

Why Captain Sim picks shift-l instead of common use letter l for night window lights is beyond comprehension. I am guessing it has something to do with programming codes beyond control of Captain Sim for 707.

Will let both of you know if it works.

And many more thanks to both of you Nathan and Markoz for pointing out to me HUGE difference in keyboard button command especially graphical presentation by Markoz that makes me realizing that Captain Sim does not use common letter l button command for night lights

Regards,

Aharon

Markoz,

I finally got chance to test your shift-l theory and I regret that it does not work for night passenger window light. All the shift-l does for Captain Sim 707 is to give light to cockpit panel and engineer panel but not to passenger windows.

Regards,

Aharon

It doesn't make any sense that when I press Shift+L, I get the Passenger Cabin lights, as well as the panel lights you described in the cockpit, yet you don't get the Passenger Cabin lights ON.
Other than what I already suggested to fix the issue, I really don't know what else you could do. Sad

That is okay    Each computer is different and has its own personality     hahhahahaha  Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin

The only theory I have is I must have missed any switch or button for electric or battery power needed for passenger cabin night window lights.

Yes, that  they certainly do seem to have.

I don't think so because from a cold and dark setting, I can turn on only the Battery Switch, and the passenger cabin lights can be turned on, and off. Sad
