The last few weeks has been frustrating – for some reason the ECAM Control Panel pushbutton no longer has ARINC output, and the RMP now no longer turns on. I am putting down the culprit to a mistake I made with the 28 voltage and a possible short circuit when I was connecting the ARINC boards.
This is unfortunate as one small mistake can have severe consequences. As a result your very expensive ECP and RMP or aircraft part may no longer work. Sourcing spare parts, or components are extremely difficult and expensive.
Fortunately there is a friend who is an avionics expert who can assist in looking at these panels for me. I hope to send them out for possible repair soon.
Look Twice, Cut Once. Think Twice, Cut Once. Look Twice, Think Twice, Cut Once.
Leave it to the experts.
I am so sorry.
