Question about Saitek Eclipse II

The " T " and the " Y " require more pressure

For some reason, the t and the y started requiring more pressure to get them to type the letter. I keep having to go back and type in the T's and Y's. They work, the just require more pressure that normally used when typing.

    All of the sudden, a set of keys in the upper left corner of my Saitek Eclipse 2 keyboard require more pressure to work. The keyboard is clean, non-damaged and this problem just started to occur. The number of keys seems to be slowly increasing. I have found many complaints on other sites of the same problem. The keys I am currently having problems with are the 1,2,3,q,w,e,a,s and d keys. The problem is intermittant, sometimes they work just fine other times not so much. Also it seems that some keys like the e key enter double sometimes. I am about to take it apart and see if there is anything I can do to fix it.

It's a design fault - I opened it up to have a look and the bottom plastic plate cracks after just a few week's use.
I suggest a) another non-Saitek keyboard or stiffening the bottom plate somehow.

You're not the only one to experience this problem... I too have the same problem and it's EXTREMELY annoying when typing, as I'm a fast typer as it is and I'm constantly having to go back to type in the missing letters!

I've tried popping out all the keys to wash them but to no avail. Unfortunately, it looks like a design fault or something if more than one person are experiencing it.

It's a real shame because it's an excellent keyboard!

My keyboard is approximately 6 to 8 weeks old!!

What kind of keyboard are you using?? is it from a laptop or pc? if it is an external keyboard, try to detatch the y and t keys from the keyboard using anything that is thin (eg. knife, pen, etc.). clean it... and put it back by just pushing it back..

Have gas ,spark and compression no run


FUEL INJECTED CARS REQUIRE LOTS OF FUEL PRESSURE. THE ELEMENTS NECESSARY FOR STARTING ARE: SPARK ,COMPRESSION, FUEL, FUEL PRESSURE, TIMING AND CRANK AND CAM SENSOR SIGNALS AT THE PROPER MOMENT AND STARTER MOTOR ENGAGEMENT. FUEL PRESSURE REQUIRED IS USUALLY 30-50 LBS DEPENDING ON THE TYPE OF CAR. THE COMPUTER MUST PULSE THE INJECTORS.

Have a1998 astro van that wont start until I spray starting fluid in the throttle body, then starts up and runs fine until about two hours later I go to start it back up and it wont start again.PLEASE HELP...


The first thing you need to check is fuel pressure. This type of fuel system requires a minimum fuel pressure of 56 psi to start. Anything less, even as little as 1psi. And it will not start. It starts and runs when you add the starting fluid because the poppets (the mechanical injectors located at each cylinders intake runner) require less fuel pressure to operate when the intake is under vacuum.

This is a classic symptom of low fuel pressure. A new fuel pump is the typical fix for this problem. Don't skimp on quality if you do need a new fuel pump. They are not all the same.

97 jimmy runs when you pour gas into throttle body, fuel pumps is putting out 55 to 56 psi. but will not pickup the gas from the injectors, fuel manifold psi is 55 to 56psi. 1997 4.3 vortec engine


If the 8th letter of the VIN # is W which i bet it is than your fuel pressure is to low.

This engine uses a CPI unit to deliver fuel to the cylinders. The CPI unit consists of a central injector that feeds fuel to the poppet valve that are right above the intake valves. The poppet valves require high fuel pressure in order to open and deliver fuel to the cylinders at start up.

The reason why it starts and runs if you add a little gas through the throttle body is that once the vehicle is running the intake is under vacuum. The poppets can open with less fuel pressure in a vacuum. This is a real common scenario with these style injection systems.

A new good quality fuel pump (a/c delco or delphi are good pumps) and your fuel pressure should be back into spec of 58 psi or more and the vehicle should fire right up. Make sure you replace the fuel filter when you replace the pump.

My Wheelwriter 5 types faded and incomplete letters. We changed to a new ribbon, but problem is still there. Seems the pressure is not hard enough.


The solenoid for the hammer is probably sticky or the pad is worn.
This requires disassembly for cleaning, lube or replacing the pad.

Do you have to use oil in the pump and if so type,how often.


water pumps doesn't require oil in the pump; but your engine does require. if the water pump is of "self priming" type, fill the pump casing with water before starting the machine to avoid damage to the water seals.

You can enter text into your phone using the traditional method of pressing a key several times for each character, or by pressing a key once for each letter while words likely to be the one you want are chosen from a database.

There is an error code comming up it is f32


The F32 error code is a pressure switch failure error code, this error could be caused by several different reasons.

More than likely the pressure switch has malfunctioned. Be sure you are using H.E.(high efficiency)detergent. Select STOP twice to cancel the cycle. Select DRAIN & SPIN if there is excessive water in the washer. Re-select cycle and press START. If the problem remains you will need to call for service. This type of repair will require accessing the inside of the cabinet area to make some checks. This will require a service technician to diagnose & repair.

Service Code


The maintenance service indicator shows the maintenance service type (letters A-H) in the multifunction display. This service type is only to give the customer an approximate time required to perform the required maintenance ranging from approximately one hour for Service A to approximately eight hours for Service H.

To determine the actual service items required, you must call up the service item menu in the multifunction display. Refer to instruction below.

Calling up the maintenance service data information

The maintenance service indicator shows the maintenance service type (letters A-H) in the multifunction display approximately one month before the service appointment is due in miles (distance criterion) or in days (time criterion).

This maintenance service type is based on the service items to be carried out. The service items are described in the Maintenance Booklet.

The service items to be carried out under the corresponding service type can be displayed in the multifunction display example Service "D" on my 2005 E320 4MATIC at 12,000 miles.
