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 X52 pro. Throttle works fine, but the lights on the stick are constanly flashing and the stick doesn't work


if your X52 is less than 2 years old and you have the receipt, it's under warranty. Call Saitek and they will take it back and fix it (no charge). Mine is more than 2 years old so I am out of luck.

My saitek x52 joystick wont work. Flashing lights every half second. Throttle works fine.


My X52 began doing this after hundreds of hours of use. Joystick lights flashing twice per second. Throttle operative but joystick (and buttons) not.

The problem was 2 wires inside the joystick base that had eventually been sawed in half by the sharp edge of the metal tube that carries the wires up into the stick. I have no doubt that this same issue could cause intermittent operation if just the insulation is worn off of more than one wire.

The fix: Remove the 4 screws from the base and lift the joystick assy out of the base. Inspect the wires where they emerge from the metal tube. You will find wires broken, or, insulation rubbed off. If you have broken wires, strip the ends and solder them together...you should have about 1/4 inch of "slop" up in the top end so you can pull the top wires down enough to strip and solder. If you re-insulate the solder splices with heat shrink or spaghetti tubing I would keep the amount used minimal...these wires need to remain somewhat flexible when the stick is being used.

Finally, I fixed the engineering defect that caused this in the first place by immobilizing the wire bundle with hot glue at the tube opening to prevent future contact with the sharp tube end. If your only problem was skinned insulation, this hot glue application may be all you need to do to keep the exposed conductors from contacting each other or the tube.

Speaking of "slop", you will also be contending with a bunch of silicone grease that lubricates the wire and mechanism.

My joystick will not respond.


you have to plug the round tipped courd into the slot in both controllers, connecting both. you only plug one thing into your computer and that is the usb cord built into the throttle control.

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.

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.
