Question about Logitech G25 Wheel And Pedals Set

1 Answer

G25 Wheel No Longer Responsive

OK. I've had the G25 for about 4 months, use it frequently and I'm as gentle as possible with it. It has never seen any abuse or drops. Just today, I noticed that for the first time ever, the whell doesn't calibrate itself when I turn on my computer. So, I go through all the settings, etc. check all of the cables and wires, etc., etc. ALL of the buttons and pedals are fully responsive; the wheel still has no functionality. I can turn it the full 900 degrees, but it turns freely, i.e. it does not center or provide input in my games or in the control panel. Now, I removed the wheel from the desk to check connections, etc. and I noticed that the power wire does have a severe crimp in it; apparently I didn't have the wire fully out of the way when clamping it down. However, it has been secured to my desk for some time. Why all of a sudden does the wheel not work? Like I said, all of the buttons, etc. are fully functional. It's only the wheel that doesn't do anything. Please help! I'm a racing sim junkie and need my driving fix!

    You have probably answered your own question, it's likely the cable has been damaged. It could have been partially cut when it first got clamped and left very little wire to carry the power. It may have burnt out over time if it was transmitting all the power over just a few strands of wire. Try to borrow a power supply and see if that fixes your problem. It really does sound like your wheel is not getting any mains power. The electronics are powered via the usb connection but the motors are powered directly from the mains via the adapter.

    If it is the power cable you can get a new power supply or fix the original cable. Just cut out the crimped section and strip back the wires and rejoin them.

    While other logitech wheels have a similar power pack, the G25 has dual motors and uses a higher capacity power supply than all the other force feedback devices. It would be ok to use something from another model just for testing but don't continuously use it with anything other than another G25 power pack or something that has similar performance specifications.

Also for (during race)
Look back-bottom pad

Look right-right pad

To change any of the button functions use the DFP settings in the options menue.
I have not used the wheel in photo mode. The only thing you can't do with the wheel is "exit" game. I also never have my controller on during gameplay I only turn it on to exit the game. If anyone needs anymore help with this wheel give me a shout-back and I'll try my best to help.
One last thing make sure your wheel is in the far left port(port 1) or port 3

G25 ps2/ps3 no steering..buttons & pedals ok

Hi Guys, I have found your solution. If all the buttons work, but the steering does not, it's because the buttons are powered by the USB bus. The electric engine of the wheel need really juice from the power supply. I have just bought a G25 and all the buttons worked fine, but turning the wheel was completely undetected. The power supply was cold as a supermodel heart. I have just put a new power supply and now all the things work perfectly. By the way, my thanks to all the other guys that posted the G25 issues, it really helped me out.

Enjoy your driving !
