Question about Logitech Extreme 3D Pro Joystick

1 Answer

Sticking Joy Stick

When attempting to level off after climbing to altitude, the control stick will not allow the aircraft to level out to a smooth altitude attitude, even with very small stick movements...wondering if there is any kind of lubricant that could be applied to the electircal contacts in the base of the Joy Stick that could eliminate this sticking response....Grampamanning@yahoo.com

    Sorry about the delay in responding...been on the west coast for the past two weeks....the problem exist in both Flight sim 2004 and also in X...have not attempted to open the base of the stick but I was wondering if there was some way of using an non-interfering lubicant either on the stick gimbaling mechanism or on the electrical pick ups...for example,,,graphite or 3in1 applied with a qtip...appreciate your thoughts or ideas..Dickmann

Try the recalibration utility. Please click here.

Should that not work, you may have to do a clean boot/install of the gaming software.

1. Open the Windows Control Panel.
2. Open the Add / Remove Programs window.
3. Locate the listing for the software and remove it. When prompted to remove the camera drivers files, click Yes.

Now download the latest version of the software for your OS from HERE

The following is the procedure for a 'clean boot'. I am assuming that you have XP. If you have a different OS, just let me know and I will send you the appropriate procedure to boot clean in that OS.

1. Click Start --> Run --> Type MSCONFIG --> Click OK
2. On the General tab, choose Selective Startup
3. Uncheck Process SYSTEM.INI file
4. Uncheck Process WIN.INI file
5. Uncheck Load Startup Items
6. Click on the Services tab
7. At the bottom, check Hide All Microsoft Services
8. Uncheck all boxes in the window or click the button labeled Disable All
6. Click OK
7. Click Restart

After restarting, reinstall the downloaded software. Next , do the following:

1. Click Start --> Run --> Type MSCONFIG--> Click OK
2. Replace checkmarks in the items that you previously removed them from.
3. On the General tab, choose Normal Startup
4. Click OK
5. Click YES, when asked to restart your computer

Hope that helps...Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.

P.S. Before you assign a rating, please make sure that the issue is resolved or you are satisfied.

Ok so my controllers right joy stick always makes the camera point down making it hard to aim the weapons


Can you change options on the set up screen of the game. Most of them let you reverse the direction the stick works in so you can make the camera move up instead.

Too senitive can't control fx9 or fsx


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.

Luck!

Right analog stick not working


Check the controls on the game's control section. If you play another game that uses the right analog control and it works on that game then it's the control set up for FIFA. Make sure that the analog control light is on when the game boots up. Sometimes if the analog control light is not on when you turn the game on and you turn it on afterwards, the analog stick controls don't work properly. That happened to me on NFS Pro Street. If this helped you leave feedback please. FIXYA!

The buttons do what you want them to do. The stick is programmable. Most games allow you to map the joystick controls the way you want. With others, you can map them with the Saitek software. Download the drivers and software at:

Right joystick


I don't personally know of anywhere that will replace the stick. If it truly is broken as you say, you will need to purchase another one. After all, it is broken.

Joy stick or?


I have a Saitek X-45 that I use. It comes with a throttle and joystick. It's controls are very smooth and can be adjusted for increased firmness. There are a lot of programmable buttons that work great for FS2002. The only draw back is the joystick does not have aileron control by twisting it, you have to program a rocker button on the throttle. Unless of course you go all the way and buy foot controls. It looks like the X-52 is the updated version of my controller but it isn't cheap. The X-45 works good for what I need it for.
