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.
