OK. I've had the G25 for about 4 months, use it frequently and I'm as gentle as possible with it. It has never seen any abuse or drops.
Just today, I noticed that for the first time ever, the whell doesn't calibrate itself when I turn on my computer.
So, I go through all the settings, etc. check all of the cables and wires, etc., etc.
ALL of the buttons and pedals are fully responsive; the wheel still has no functionality. I can turn it the full 900 degrees, but it turns freely, i.e. it does not center or provide input in my games or in the control panel.
Now, I removed the wheel from the desk to check connections, etc. and I noticed that the power wire does have a severe crimp in it; apparently I didn't have the wire fully out of the way when clamping it down.
However, it has been secured to my desk for some time. Why all of a sudden does the wheel not work?
Like I said, all of the buttons, etc. are fully functional. It's only the wheel that doesn't do anything.
Please help! I'm a racing sim junkie and need my driving fix!

The best way to tell is to do a calibration test and if it is not recognizing your wheel than you may want to send it in to logitech. The g25 is a gear driven wheel and maybe something went wrong with them on the inside.
Hi Telemachou, You might want to call the Logitech Customer Care, try on another computer/Playstation, if the problem persist, then you should get a replacement for hardware failure. Thanks and have a nice day J -
Did you install the software properly cause I bet the buttons can work without any installs but the wheel not so much. Also make sure the games you are playing support the wheel. Please rate and testify.
i have a g25 wheel on my ps3 it is simply plug and play.
if you struggle with buttons check this out it has all the functions: Buttons for the G25 wheel and PS3 Top 4 The Black ones Top-triangle-cancel-reverse(gear to back car up) Left-square-cancel Right-circle-E_brake Bottom-X-enter You can also use the gas pedal for enter Bottom 4 buttons The Red ones Far left-no function Second button-Change view Third button-Pause-quick exit replay at the end of race-This button will also speed up the winnings (to keep from waiting with the cup spinning around so you can get back to racing) Fourth button-best race line for license test Buttons on wheel Left-look back (default) Right-nitro (default) I change these two buttons around myself so I have the nitro on the left. D-pad-same as the controller up,down,left,right. For menue use. Also for (during race) Look back-bottom pad Look left-left pad Look right-right pad To change any of the button functions use the DFP settings in the options menue. I have not used the wheel in photo mode. The only thing you can't do with the wheel is "exit" game. I also never have my controller on during gameplay I only turn it on to exit the game. If anyone needs anymore help with this wheel give me a shout-back and I'll try my best to help. One last thing make sure your wheel is in the far left port(port 1) or port 3
Make sure you have made all the proper connections. If this isn't the culprit check on www.GTPlanet.net. They have extensively covered all known issues and concerns with the Logitech G25 and GT5 Prologue experience.
Hi Guys, I have found your solution. If all the buttons work, but the
steering does not, it's because the buttons are powered by the USB
bus. The electric engine of the wheel need really juice from the power
supply. I have just bought a G25 and all the buttons worked fine, but
turning the wheel was completely undetected. The power supply was cold
as a supermodel heart. I have just put a new power supply and now all
the things work perfectly. By the way, my thanks to all the other guys
that posted the G25 issues, it really helped me out.
