First try the usual suspects. Uninstall *all* game controller software, reboot and install the latest Logitech drivers for your stick. Make sure you've got the latest Vista SP1 + updates. Make sure you're running the latest update of DirectX. Check for patches for your game. Plug the stick into a different port.
Check the physical movement of the stick - any springs feel broken/missing? Tension settings too high or too low? If all those are done, go in to the game controller calibration in Windows and calibrate. Test it - does the stick control the cursor properly? If so, but in-game you have problems, the problem is most likely related to the game code and unless they've released a fix, there's not much you can do.
If the stick has problems with calibration and you've installed any/all updates - likely a defective stick, contact your seller.

Hello In the control options of fsx you need to delete the defaultkeybind for the view you want assigend to your joystick.Then replace it with your controler axis.Or you can use the software and do your own program for fsx.The views in fsx have always been an issue or a problem with the game.
Also panning down in fsx and reverting back up has always been an issue or a clitch in the simulator.it does however work in fs version 9.
Using Fsuipc with a weather program or a virtual airline should not make a difference in control settings.
You might clean out the registry of any left over values. Try it on another machine if it still does it, its something mechanical inside maybe stuck. I suppose its out of warranty? You cant fly with those stickers anyways if that's what you do. Scourer the junk shops for an old MS Sidewinder, they are still the best stickes ever made.
Set all the buttons and controls up in FSX. Go to settings, controls and you will see your stick shown in there. Pick one of the tasks you want, press the button and it will assign that action to that button. Make sure you do this from the opening menu, not from within the game as this does not save it for next time.
When you have them all set, save the configuration file and give it a name you will remember. Forget the manager software. as long as you have the sticks driver installed the above will work
O-the sweet feel of a Microsoft Sidewinder Force Feedback lets see if I can be of some help. there could be any number of things going on but I'm going to give this a try. have you checked the settings in Flight Simulator 2004 seems to me that I remember a check box that said disable force feedback make sure that is unchecked. also in the settings for your controller there is a box that says enable force feedback make sure that is checked. then make sure if you are using a firewall like zone alarm you are in gaming mode because this used to give me major headaches with my system to the point I had to detach from the internet and shut down my firewall to play my games. if this doesn't work you may have to reinstall the drivers for the sidewinder this is the last easy option and it should repair any broke links and reset itself into your system. Please let me know how this helped if you need more Ideas just contact me.
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.
The most likely problem here is that you have multiple assignments for the view change command set to multiple controllers hooked up to the system. They are conflicting with each other causing random view changes.
Firstly, go into Windows Control Panel and to Game Controllers. Remove any controllers listed in that box that are not currently connected or being used in your flight simulator.
Next, go into FSX, into the control assignments section... Go through each controller in the drop down box (in the button/keys tab) and ensure only one controller has the assignment for view changes assigned.
