B747 cockpit - blank screens

Has anyone encounter this issue? I load up the B747 default aircraft. Everything loads correctly. The aircraft is sitting idle with all engines running. However, every single screen is blank.

  1. I have adjusted the brightness switches. - flood lighting works fine.
  2. I power down the aircraft and restart. - still no avail.
  3. aircraft engines are running, and I can move flaps, throttles, all light switches.
  4. some overhead panel switches such as fuel pump switches will move in and out when pressed. However, it does not show ON/OFF
  5. FMC’s are all blank
  6. all other aircraft with premium deluxe works fine.
  7. I did a complete reinstall of my msfs2020. In default mode after re-install, the 747 continue to have the blank screens.
  8. I put in a support ticket , but have never got a response from them.

I have exactly the same problem.
The 747 has been working perfectly for a long time, now it has blank screens AND it is not responding to Thrustmaster Boeing Yoke pitch input.
All other systems and aircraft are working normally!

I have the same issue. And on 787 only my PFD works. Did u find any solution?

Same here. Everything working except blank screens on all displays including FMC.
Anyone work out what this is yet?

LATER: anyone coming to this thread with blank screens try deleting that aircraft from CM and then - after a Restart- re-installing it. Worked for me.

Another update, more issues. I am having this as well. Most of the times, the MFDs and PFD have the labels but there is nothing being shown that is useful.

For the record: I was advised to uninstall the 747-8 aircraft and then to reinstall it and this fixed the problem of the blank screens and unresponsive pitch.
