When performing a flight, I regularly have the MCP together with the EFIS panels going dark. These are interfaced via the SYSBoard controller of SIM-A. When checking the controller the components are still listed (as active). Restarting the complete sim (all computers and software) resolves this, till I start a flight. It even happened whilst programming the flight plan.
The happens whilst (OR) push back, taxi, take-off, during flight, ... So, randomly. Strange...
I do have sometimes the luck that I can complete the flight without issues. All other components function normally.
I did check the USB wiring, power (both 5V and 12V ; connected to dedicated power supply capable of pulling 6A each). All looks fine here.
What else could I check to see what's causing this issue?
Full B737-800 DSTD
ALL FDS & 0.01% OEMs
