Good to know
The PCD7.D457Bxxx and PCD7.D457Sxxx are replaced with the PCD7.D457V panels in 2012. The repair service is guaranteed until end of 2017.
The PCD7.D457SMCF was replaced by the PCD7.D457VMCF by the end of 2011. The repair service is guaranteed until end of 2013.
Firmware version 1.10.60 corrects a problem concerning the backlight of B&W MB Panels, see FAQ 101532.
The main differences between firmware 1.08.52 and 1.10.60 are listed in FAQ 101389.
Please note that it is not possible to enter the setup menu and updating the firmware if the QVGA MB Panel is inside an in-wall or an on-wall kit (see FAQ 101408).
When updating the FW of MB Panels it may happens that you have to update the booter as well. For example when you're downloading the firmware and you get a NAK response (see FAQ 101226).
There is a "Getting started with MB Panels" example available in the Getting Started section.
In order to use the Alarming and the Trending macros on the QVGA MP Panels, the Web Editor version 5.11.06 or later is required (as well as firmware version 1.07.00 or later for the MB Panel or 1.08.01 for 3.5" MB Panels).
The latest Web Editor version is 5.13.00 and can be downloaded from the PG5 section.

Micro Browser Monochrome Display contrast changes (FAQ #100718)
When updating the Micro Browser Firmware to version 10701, the contrast settings in the monochrome panels PCD7.D457BTCF and PCD7.D457BMCF have to be changed. You'll have to increase the contrast for several steps.
With the new Firmware version we had to change the contrast adjustment on the Hardware and Firmware side to avoid any whistle (noise) and waves appearances.
Please note: The tone and brightness of each MB-Panel display is an individual characteristic and can be slightly different from one display to the other. At some contrast settings or with some images, flickering or differences in the brightness levels may appear.
On Microbrowser panels with harware version <$C it is not possible to store teq- and gif-files on the panel. (FAQ #100576)
If you are using a Microbrowser panel with HW-Version <$C you have to download all teq- and gif-files to the PCD.
PCD7.D7__ Ethernet Driver: error in commande function! (FAQ #100337)
When using the commande function which allows for example the writing of the hardware clock from PLC to Terminal PCD7.D7-- over Ethernet connection the 2 first words are swapped.
Normally the 1st word 0 contains the command the VT has to carry out and the 3 others word contain the parameters. This works well in S Bus driver but with Ether S Bus the two first words are swapped.
This means it is so with this error:
Word 0 is Parameter 1
Word 1 is commande
Word 2 is Parameter 2
Word 3 is Parameter 3
In order to solve that problem the attached file vtwindev.dbr has to be copied in the main directory PCD8.D81W software, this will replace the existing file.
Fkeys don't work on PCD7.D16_ with HMI editor! (FAQ #100175)
The FKeys flags available in HMI Editor (in Tag Internals) don't work on the PCD7.D16_.
Because those flags have a double functionality, they don't work for those small displays. It is necessary to use a bigger display as PCD7.D231 or PCD7.D232 in order to have this FKeys functionality!
