    USE MAN PITCH TRIM

    Hi,

    I have this problem the second time and don't know why and how to fix it.

    After programming the MCDU and starting the engines I get the warning message in upper ECAM:

    F/CTR DIRECT LAW
    (PROT LOST)
    -MAN PITCH TRIM......USE

    and in the PFD display: USE MAN PITCH TRIM

    Why do I get this warning and how can I fix it?
    The ATHR and AP are not working after take off...

    Thanks for your help
    Regards
    Matthias

    The Problem is since the actual Build. Before the last update I never had that problem.

    Scan you overhead - no annunciator warnings or switches disabled? Check your hydraulics - all turned on? What does the ECAM page say? Have you turned battery 1 and 2 on?

    Sorry for the delayed answer, I made a few flights, but I did't have the obove described problem again until now.
    As I remember there where no warnings at the overhead. All system where turned on...
    I will post if I have the warning again.

    on the lower ECAM page: (after pressing STS on ECAM panel)
    left display side:
    - MAX SPEED..................320/.77 (blue message)
    - MAN PITCH TRIM..........USE (blue message)

    Thank you for your fast answer.
    The FAC`s on the overhead are on and have no faults.
    The ADIRS I can't check, I have no hardware for it on the overhead, only a blind panel...

    Use the software overhead program to check.
