Saitek X52 Joystick

When my Joystick is connected to the throttle control and then connected to my laptop via a USB port the throttle contorl works perfectly fine but the Joystick is not recognised and the lights blink. I have used my Joystick before, many times actually, this has happened once before and I managed to get it workign again, but only recently has this happened that I cannot get it. I use the Saitek X52 Flight Control for FSX. Please help me if you can. Thank you.

I have had this exact problem and it's very frustrating! I finally fixed mine by doing the following:
I go under the hardware controller in windows and uninstall the drivers for the controller and uninstall any software associated like sst. Then I take ONLY the throttle controller and unplug the flight stick from it with the p/s2 connection. Then download the correct drivers for your stick model and run the install. It will ask for you to plug in the controller to continue and then you can plug in the isolated throttle controller through the usb. Install as usual and then when done you can plug in the flight stick to the throttle controller. Should work perfectly if done correctly.

Sony vaio won't boot when saitek controllers are connected to its USB ports


the x52 drivers are problematic to begin with...
...but sounds like your computer is trying to boot on that device (as a primary/usb/H.D.) you either need to edit your boot options or reset the devices accordingly in your bios...
if your not familiar. . .DONT EVEN BOTHT...cuz you could wind up doing more harm than good ...tampering with your bios is tricky business (that even some of 'US' big boys have fried some processors, boards and even drives...!!! lol) so my honest advice to you if you're uncomfortable and unfamiliar with editing your system files (regedit/sysedit) &/or bios...ask a friend?! best of luck...

I have a Flagpoint Extra Joystick that wont recognise with vista


you'll have to buy a game port to usb converter, or a creative labs sound card with a game port. you are more likely to find the sound card. creative labs sound cards are more likely to be compatible with vista.

Lost the interconnecting cable, need help with replacement


It's a Male/Male PS/2 Cable. You have a couple of options:

1) Make it yourself. Find a couple of old PS/2 Mice, take em apart, tie em together and heat tube it OR

2) How can I get a Replacement Cable for my X52 Units?
Due to high demand, we cannot guarantee replacement cables for the X52 Pro. However, if you would like to request a cable please send your details to techsupport@saitek.com. We will process the request and inform you as to the availability of the cable.

Saitek AV8R-01 Joystick - How to install?


No download disk is required. Your PC will automatically 'find' the joystick after it has been plugged into a USB port.
You can just about play any flight sim with this joystick, jat, prop plane or helicopter. The buttons do what ever you program them to do through your game's control settings.

X-axis trouble


I had the same problem with my X52 and searched high and low on the internet for a solution. What I did was pop the base off and found a loose connection on the x-axis wires. I re-routed both the x and y axis contact wires underneath the p/s2 port and put it back together. Seems to be working fine now. I will not that opening up the controller will void your warranty and it also could be possible that your x-axis problem could stem from something completely different from what was wrong with mine. You may contact me if you need any help with it. mynameisbob AT gmail DOT com.
