Question about Saitek ST290 Joystick

1 Answer

Trigger button on Saitek ST290 is stuck in fire position

Basically, it's like the trigger is constantly being fired. I've tried pressing the button, restarting, disconnecting the device to reset the position, but nothing's worked.

    I have the same problem...it was due to a heavy-handed middle-aged idiot that thinks joysticks are made of steel. Nevertheless, any advice on disassembly/repair would be appreciated. It is in warranty, but alas, no sales slip. I AIN'T gonna pay somebody to fix it! It would be the #1 button, the TRIGGER button, right? FYI, I'm the OLD fool that plunked down the bread for this stick and feel like it ought to be the last stick I'll ever need.

    I have same problem with the trigger sticking on. Thing is it always tests ok the trigger never sticks in test. Problem gets worse longer it is used in the game.

I've disassembled the ST290 to get at it's internals. It wasn't easy. It's not something I would recommend and finding the exact same lever switch to replace the damaged one would be tricky, not to mention soldering in the new switch and all.
I have seen the ST290 at Radio Shack stores for less than $20. You might be less frustrated just getting a new one.

Make sure your system is mapped to register the trigger, take it apart and make sure the trigger mechanism is working, return it to where you purchased it, or just don't use the trigger.
