Fanatec F1 Wheel Buttons Stop Working or Buttons go Crazy
I sent the following support request to Fanatec. I am just wondering if anyone had this problem. Thanks!
This has happened 4 times in the last 2 days. It never happened before then I will be playing iRacing. Everything is fine. Then while driving, I cannot shift and all buttons are unresponsive. 2 of the times this happened, it was like all the buttons were being pressed as fast as possible (I could see this because menus were flipping and voice chat indicator flashed very fast). The other times the buttons just didn't work. All 4 times I could not hit the little OLED menu button and it was locked up on the OLED F logo. In all cases I could still steer with the CSW 2.5 Wheelbase and still brake with my CSL Elite pedals. Powering off the wheel and turning it back on fixes the problem. This has ruined 4 races for me. I have tried a different USB port. I have uninstalled the Fanatec_64_driver_345 driver and reinstalled it. I have re-flashed all 3 firmwares for the wheel again. I have taken the F1 Rim off the wheelbase and put it back on. I never remove the rim, as it is the only one I use. But the pins all look just fine. I have been using the podium paddles on this wheel with no problems for 6 weeks. I have unplugged everything in my office (computer and all other items from the wall outlet. I did install Fanalab on 9/25. I played with it for one night and then removed it since I didn't have time to learn the features. I had races after that with no problems. When the wheel starts up and completes the rotation test, it looks like the F logo is corrupted for bout 3 seconds. I don't remember seeing that before. It eventually looks normal. I am not sure if this is normal. PC Driver: 345 Wheel Base Firmware: 662 Wheel Base Motor Firmware: 22 Steering Wheel Firmware: 28
I posted on Reddit and someone mentioned a 347 driver. I don't see a download for that here in the forums. Doesn't anyone suggest that and have a link?
