CSW v2.5 and Elite P1 Rim quit working while playing F1 2019
So I’ve had my CSW v2.5 base, Elite P1 rim, and CSL LC pedals about a year. It’s taken a lot of practice, but I’m playing F1 2019 on 60% opponent difficulty. So I’m playing Monaco today, running the track acclimation program, and out of the blue the controller quits working, and I get a message to that effect. I save my progress, close the game, and when I use the Fanatec app to look at my controllers... sure enough, no wheel showing. Rebooted the pc, ran updates, still having issues. Eventually realized the wheel was in Xbox mode, so I put it back in PC mode, turn the wheel, and it goes back to Xbox mode. At this point, I uninstall the Fanatec software, reinstall the version before 330, and the wheel shows back up. But when I click properties it disappears again. At this point, I check Device Manager and nothing is missing. So I download and install beta 3.46, reboot, and the wheel is gone again. Now it’s showing a driver issue, so I point to the install folder, it installs the driver, I reboot, and when I log back in and do properties... I can get to the firmware page. Upgraded the wheel firmware, and the wheel seemed better, but... Now when I go to turn off the wheel, it will not turn off. Holding the power button for 3 seconds, 10 seconds, or 30 seconds... it NEVER turns off. I eventually pulled the plug, plugged it back in, and it “came on”... but a period showed up on the wheel. It takes about 10 seconds, then it moves from the left to the center, then the center to the right of the LED display. Holding power still didn’t work, and having plans after two hours of troubleshooting... I unplugged the wheel and left. Safe to say I’m all kinds of frustrated as I love my wheel, and can’t just go get another or parts somewhere local, even if I could afford that. Any thoughts or suggestions are appreciated. It’s not like the fans were running loud or anything obvious was bad before this started. So I’m ultra concerned. Thanks!
