Formula V2 Rim button Failure on a DD2 base
I'm having a complete nightmare where my buttons on my wheel just fail, suddenly I cant shift up or down, to be honest if it was just the other buttons I could probably manage, but losing the shifters its absolutely killing me, I've just had it fail 5 times in the space of 1 hour during a 3 hour race. I'm starting to dread every time I go to use it and change gear.
It was a problem that started the end of last year, so I was told to update firm wear and check connections of which I have, I was also told it could be current interference from the power cable so I've made sure my power cable is nowhere near the others, I also use to run a usb power hub for the led lights, webcam and a few other little things so disconnected that, (the DD2 has always been connected directly into my PC) I've even earthed my rig. It's been fine for a few weeks then last night it decided to come and haunt me, then today was just a total disaster with multiple failures.
The pins are all solid in the back of the wheel, one of them is shorter than the rest, but I've been informed that's normal. I still have FFB, and steering but just no functions. I've found the fastest way to resolve it so far it to pull of the wheel and reconnect it, but of course this is risky and costs me about 10 seconds.
Has anyone else experienced this and how did you manage to resolve it?
