diabel posted a topic in ThrustmasterHello everyone. I am hoping you could help with the problem I've been having with the Thrustmaster TX (Ferrari 548 edition) wheel. Any help would be appreciated before I go searching for the replacement. I had the wheel for a few years and it is now out of warranty. I use the wheel with Xbox One and have been playing Forza 6/7 and PC 1/2 over the last couple of years. Problems started occurring with Forza 7 and are now happening in all the games. Initially Forza 7 was set to FFB @ 100% so maybe that is where things went wrong. I turned it down to 50% now but that did not help. Initial symptoms were loss of force feedback and inability to calibrate. Recently the wheel connects to Xbox but does not even atttempt to calibrate and none of the buttons (except for the Xbox button) are working. I run Motocalibration to reset the wheel. What I've tried so far: 1.) Breakaway USB cable - replaced with new. No impact. 2.) Configured fan to run at all times. 3.) Opened the wheel and checked the fan operation and general heat. Heatsink around the motor is barely warm. Don't think this is overheating issue. 4.) Motocalibration - this actually brings the wheel back for probably 20 minutes after which force feedback slowly goes away and wheel is back to unresponsive. 5.) Turned the FFB in Forza 7 to 50% from 100% originally. Symptoms definitely point to what others and Thrustmaster described as overheating but I see no correlation with the actual temperature of the motor heatsink. Unless the sensor that tracks that went bad... Any suggestions on what else I can try would be appreciated before I scrap this thing and look for another wheel.
Today I booted up my wheel and it started calibrating. It went past it's center though. The weird thing I noticed is that until it's center it displays one horizontal line in the center and past it's center it displays three. I tried flashing the new firmware but I cannot get into bootloader mode since there isn't any LED near the guide button that lights up.
Hi, long story short. I bought a t300 used from amazon, couldn't get it to work and sent it back. Bought a t500rs instead, attached it to my desk with screws and was able to happily use it for a few days(without heavy use and the fans were always doing their job) then during a game the base turned off and stayed off. I tried all the USB's, removed all other hubs, tried with and without hubs, restarted, reinstalled drivers, read forums, searched on google and tried out stuff again and again. Then i tried another PC and both a Ps3 and Ps4 and couldn't get it work again that evening it happened. So i thought it was dead ...again! So since it's dead within such a short time frame they allow me to send it back and get my money back. BUT the next day after my PC and base were off for at least 12hours i started the pc and when i switched on the wheels power adapter(which i use for just one lamp also) the T500 came back to life and started calibrating! Now before ending its calibration and during the wheel turning all the way to one side(where it hits its limit) it turns off again! This is repeatable meaning everytime i power of my PC and restart it the base comes back to life but just for this short time frame. I'm fed up with Thrustmaster. There is always some problem! ..i just wanna race! Any ideas left or is it best to just accept it and send it back?
