CSL Elite Wheel Base Doesn't Power Following Failed Firmware Update
I have just recieved my new CSL Elite Wheel Base V1.1, ClubSport Steering Wheel Formula V2 and CSL Elite Pedals LC. I initially tested all these out the box on the Xbox One as i didn't have a windows computer to hand and they worked fine.
However once I had the opportunity to use a windows PC I downloaded the driver for the wheel base (Fanatec_64_driver_336_beta) from the Fanatec website and installed this on the PC. I followed the prompts and instructions in order to update the wheel firmware with the wheel base (with wheel fitted) connected to the PC via USB. The computer indicated that flashing the new firmware had failed and the wheel base power light was flashing red, and a subsequent attempt returned the same result. Following this the only option was to try to power cycle the wheel base but after this the computer now won't even recognise it as a device when plugged into the USB socket.
Now the wheel base doesn't seem to power as pressing the power button only powers the fan and sends power to the wheel (shows Fanatec logo on display). None of the LED's or power LED light up and the wheel base won't do its power up sequence. It's also not recognised by the Xbox One so I can no longer use it.
My guess is that the firmware has been wiped and the new firmware wasn't uploaded, therefore the wheel is effectively blank. Is it possible to flash firmware onto a blank wheel? How do i get my PC to recognise my wheel?
I'm wondering if there is anyone out there who has come across this issue and knows how to fix it?
