I am having some problems with the 737 and 747. With the 737 I can't get a/t to stay on it goes on then switches off and some pink text in a button below flashes and I can't tell what that text says or what it means. For the 747 I put everything into the FMC and I tried pressing the LNAV button and the LNAV button switched on then switched off. I don't know what that means or how I could correct it. What can I exactly do to fix these two problems?
for the 737, go to your overhead panel. there are two generator switches (gen1 and gen 2) lower middle of the panel. They have a pale blue indicator light. Turn them on after the engines are fired up.
Not much experience with the 747, so i can't help you there.
