Once the latest update was installed, most buttons on the top and bottom panel stopped working. I have updated drivers for my GeForce 1060 GPU (6GHz) without getting back the functionality of the buttons

Hi diazmr

I'm not with Laminar Research, just a fellow simmer in the UK, but without knowing more information it will be very difficult to determine the cause of the problems you are experiencing. Some questions therefore:-

1. What version of X-Plane are you using?

2. Where did you purchase X-Plane from, Laminar Research or Steam? If it is the latter, please refer all questions to Steam directly as this Q&A does not support Steam products.

3. What aircraft model/s are you referring to?

4. Exactly which avionics controls are you referring to?

First of all thank you in advance for your answer.

As for the questions you ask me, you will find the answers here under:

1. The version. X-plane 11.31 (the latest update)

2. The purchase. In Laminar Research

3. The aircraft models. B737-800 (both laminar and zibo)

4. Neither of the buttons/knobs on the cockpit upper panel, nor avionics on the front panel (pilot and co-pilot) work, even the radiocommunications panel does not work either.  None buttons/knobs allow the slightest movement, with the exception of the course and HDG knobs of the pilot.

Hi again

I have the same version of X-Plane 11.31 as you and I've just loaded the LR Boeing 737-800 and more or less all of the rotary controls and switches work as they should.

I did find a few controls that did nothing, but I might be trying to switch on something in the incorrect sequence, not knowing this particular aircraft very well.

Have you tried to re-install X-Plane 11.31 again, as the Installer program will only update those files that are either missing or corrupt?

I'm not sure about the Zibo 737-800 as I do not currently have this available.

Yes indeed, I believe that the most effective thing will be to uninstall and reinstall the software again, in spite of how tedious this may be. Probably a library is missing or corrupt.

I will tell you the final result obtained.

 As for the ZIBO version, if you plan to fly the B737 800, I suggest you download it. This freeware is much more realistic and complete than Laminar, especially those related with the flight parameters of the FMS.

Thanks again
