Question about Guillemot F-16 TQS (003-0001-TQS) Throttle

Open Question

Thrustmaster TQS Throttle messed up

I recently purchased a store demo Cougar HOTAS USB system and have found that the TQS does not function correctly. Hooked the system to my ol' Compaq (PIII 1GHz, 516MB, 400MB FSB, WIN XP) and installed the HOTAS and Foxy software then ran the firmware update on the FLCS (with TQS disconnected). The TQS in off position is "full afterburner". 1/2 inch up from that is "0 power". Throttle full forward is "3/4 power". Most buttons on both sticks are not functional. Joystick calibrates fine. Have not tried programming yet, figured I would get help first. Any thoughts, suggestions, or solutions?

I have a simple problem with the SAITEK pro flight yoke. The LED display does not turn on. The usb is plugged correctly and the yoke functions correctly. All is working properly but the LED DISPLAY. ...

For how low have you had the Yoke?

This a known fault with the front display on the Yoke failing, it's caused by the LED's being faulty or a inperfect contact there.

If the Yoke functions correctly then it might be one of the above.

If you still have warranty, meaning if you purchased the Yoke less then 2 years ago, try to ask for a replacement for it either from the retailer of from Saitek.

hope it helps...

Same problem. I called Thrustmaster yesterday and they said that they're working with Nascar to fix the problem. They couldn't give me any guarantees that it would be fixed, though.

Problema with thrustmaster racing whell

this is because the 2 pedals are acting as buttons. so wen u press them then computer thinks ur pressing a button all way down instead of rotating an axis. you have to somehow find a way to tell computer that you have pedals and that the axis have to be callibrated in control panel. i have no idea how this is done though.
