Having trouble programing my extreme 3d pro joystick and FSX deluxe. I am using Vista. I can't get the elevator trim up/down to work. Doesn't even seam to work when i press 7 or 1 on the...

I would first of recommend doing a calibration of your joystick. To do that, make sure your joystick is connected to your computer and go to your start menu>>devices and printers. Once your window pops up, find your joystick and right click on the icon, and go to settings. You can find the calibration wizard there. Once that is done, open up your Flight Simulator X, and go to the settings tab. Along the right hand side, click on controls. From there you can configure your joystick buttons to whichever action you like. Please keep in mind as well when your are adjusting the elevator trim, rudder trim, that the adjustments made from one keystroke, or button push, are very very small adjustments. You can change that by moving the slider on the Repeat column, thereby making one keystroke or button push equal to multiple taps!

Charged 1 time and killed it i think lol

try replacing the usb wire that you connect from the console to the joystick.if it still doesnt work or charge,then check if the battery still has power.if you have a spare joystick try that battery on the other one to figure out if the battey is still fine,if it works then you have a busted joystick m.b.time to buy a new one

Psp analog joystick

thats what happens when you lose the silicone pad with copper connections inside.

another posibility is that you didnt tie the screws hard enough. thatr worked for me.

if you dont tie the hard enough the analog goes to the upper left hand corner. and in the game, the player might walk around in circles, lol

Psp moving by it's self still.

If you take the front cover off your psp then the joystick/analogue stick is attached onto it. This can easily be taken apart for cleaning. If once you have done this it is still moving by itself then check the rubber connector that connects the joystick to the psp (in metal bit under joystick) this may be dirty, if so then clean this. If everything seems clean and it still moves by itself then replace the joystick (can be bought from this is an easy task once you have got the front of your psp off.

Hope this helps
