    I have almost the exact same problem the z rotation for rudders no longer detects things right i can have it in the middle but if i move the stick at all it goes to the right, mine still detects left but i have to turn it all the way to the side before it does....... PS to anyone looking for drivers for this for me everything else works fine on the joystick even the force feedback and i have tried it on xp, xp media edition, and vista business 32-bit, though wish i had the software it looks like it does alot more

There are two x sensor holes in the grip , one top one bottom, they control the force feed back gimbals in the base you need from time to time make sure they are clear just spray them with some alcohol base solution and give them i light probe with a tooth pick to make sure there is no gunk blocking up the holes .

Good luck.

Well, I just noticed this exactly same problem with my new PC, so i try it with my older PC and it works fine, I´m not sure if this has something to do with the USB 2.0 or the driver, but i was not able to find the version 5.X for it, microsoft page only has the version 3.2.

the extrage part is that both PCs are using the same version of WXP.

I have the same problem - have lost all stick forces (everything else works fine) and the Forces self test that can be run from the original CD software says there is no electrical power. Have changed the fuse etc. but problem remains. I think something inside the device hardware is bust. Like you I cannot find anything on the Internet as to how or where the device can be repaired!
