Have you made sure that you have scrolled down - the 747 has a lot of fuel tanks which might not be set to 100%.

I had a not-dissimilar problem,and instead of refueling to 100%, i went to 99.9%,which oddly enough solved my dilema. Cool

Firstly don't be so quick to reinstall as this could cause more problems. You can change your fuel quantity at anytime by pressing ALT and locating the fuel option. I'm always doing this during a short 50NM test flight so I can experience the enormous effort required to take off with full fuel but then change the fuel load to a safe landing level. Jon's advice that there could be hidden fuel tanks you haven't scrolled down too or that it might not register your fuel percentage is a good one. I know first hand!

Also there is no need for caps mate. Thumbs Up!

I also think your subject heading highlights the ineffectiveness of Pan Pan Pan which I think is outdated. Pan Pan Pan alerts ATC that there is a problem that will most likely lead to an emergency situation and ATC generally react to a Pan pan pan message in the same way to a mayday announcement.

In the UK, pan calls don't always lead to mayday calls but are more commonly used when you visualise another aircraft encountering problems, at which point your pan call (not mayday) will alert ATC.

minicaptain,

You can't declare emergencies (either pan or mayday calls) in FS9.
