It can be the wheel's problem, just took mine apart today. Don't be afraid, it's very simple on the inside. Just take out the screws on the bottom and there are two on the wings (open state, not closed) - now the whole bottom comes off, the wings stay on the bottom part and everything else is inside the top. Now you will see the axle with the two springs connected to it (I removed the springs from mine, feels much nicer). On the very end of that axle is a small piece of electronic, a potmeter with three wires hanging out of it. Now connect your wheel to the PC and fire up some tool that shows the exact wheel position (Windows' usb game controller utility does the trick, but I'd recommend some SimBin title, Volvo The Game is available for free, the advanced settings offer a much more precise bar for calibrating). When connected, try moving the potmeter instead of the wheel itself. You'll notice that the PC sees the movement. Now manually find the point where it's centered and fix the potmeter in that position with something - e. g. duct tape or something more professional.
Hope this helps someone goofing around here looking for a solution. :)

EDIT: I took off the white part that keeps the main axle in place and tried to fix the position of the sensor with a small piece of paper, turned out to be rubbish, so I kept going and had a way better idea.
I took out the wiring from the sensor and put a rubber band on it, then I put the wiring back in and hanged it on the left side of the plastic - on the photos this is the yellow one with many twists. For extra stability I added two more bands after that (the other yellow and the red one), this keeps the sensor straigt on the y axis (causing less tearing), but in the x axis it's tilted to the left, so it is pretty much centered. Also, the twisted yellow band is between the other two! With this you can make sure it will keep its position and won't move downwards and lose effect. This whole setup won't stick forever, and may kill the sensor eventually, but it is a working and pretty stable solution. Also, it brings back and otherwise useless piece of tech to life. You have to find the right strength of the bands yourself though (adding twists will increase it) depending on the current position of your sensor.
(The whole wheel isn't an engineering marvel and even the centered sensors wobble around causing craziness, so you can do this on both sides, just to make sure it's precise.)bb9b28ec-8ec0-42c8-a85a-efa16d0cf493.pnglogitech-formula-vibration-feedback-ma0a5zuwaz1yymg3pjh0mf1t-1-2.pnglogitech-formula-vibration-feedback-ma0a5zuwaz1yymg3pjh0mf1t-1-3.pnglogitech-formula-vibration-feedback-ma0a5zuwaz1yymg3pjh0mf1t-1-4.png

Ok well i bought the wheel and i have this game called dirtfactor and i was trying to drive a latemodel and it doesnt turn at all it turns a little but barly......also when i do sprint cars it turns but...


I wouldn't say it's a lack of the wheel being cheap I'd be more inclined to say it's "because" the wheel is cheap. Seriously, Have you tried to calibrate the wheel using the windows calibration routine found in your control panel under Game Controllers.

Obviously the wheel is operating but barly sorry, barely. That means it is working and giving input to your computer so if that input isn't enough you either need to calibrate in windows or maybe there's even a calibration routine in the game you're playing, maybe under options. Calibration by the way is found under properties on the Game Controller section. Try it.

The test section of the windows section will tell you just how far your wheel is turning or directing your cars by means of a box with a cross in it. The more you turn the wheel the further that cross will move. Test it first, then do the calibration and then test it again. I'm sure you'll see a big difference.

Xbox 360 Wireless controller wont turn on


Right, just keep plugging in the charger into the controller until the light stays red, the small amounts of charge put in each time will eventually give the battery enough juice for it's built in 'memory' to be clued in as to how much power is really in and will then start charging. This is usually caused by leaving your controller unused for a while usually days or so at room temperature after fully charging it in your xbox (i.e. the battery memory 'thinks' it's full and tells the xbox as much when really it's empty)

Thrust in FSX won't reach higher than 55% even with lever at full


This is either a calibration error, or a faulty stick. Nothing else can cause this. make sure you have the latest drivers installed or one's that it came with. Some operating systems will see the stick and load generic drivers which sort of work, but not fully. Always use the manufacturers drivers and install it using the correct route as in the installation as there are ways to install drivers that do not register them properly and you think they are installed but are not. Good luck with it.

Driving force pro steering wheel


A solution from Youtube comments:

"if u realy want this wheel to work u need to open it up, and there is a rail u can move foward to lock the wheel into 180, then fire up your pc ps3 or game and let it calibrate. and it will stay in 180 (left led on)then after it has done that push the rail backwards for 900 (both leds on). and its all good, the rail is white plastic and is under the big metal bar. u cant miss it.
ive cut a hole in mine at the top so i can move the rail whenever :)"

Well.. if you have windows xp.. then you can calibrate your controller fairly easily.

Go here:

Control panel:Printers and Other Hardware:Game Controllers:(your controller should be in the list):Advanced:Calibrate

This should solve your problem ;)
