Contact Thrustmaster directly?
None of that seems unreasonable or in breach of SOGA
Still cant work out why you want someone to sort out a product after 3 years, its bizarre.
Everyone has made it quite clear what you're entitled to and yet you continue to harangue the seller.
Not said it did.
As I mentioned, I've recently been in contact with Thrustmaster who have suggested that I may require a new circuit board.
Perfect opportunity to start modding the base I guess.
"Harangue" lol. The situation is pretty much over now.
All I can do now is repair the thing myself.
It would cost more than £60 to get someone to look at it and write a report, if TM can assure you its definitely the PCB (which sounds difficult, so I would triple check using google) then Id go for that. Only problem is how difficult is it for you to replace the PCB...
I can see DAIRs perspective purely because its a wheel which generally dont get used anywhere near as much as other input devices yet cost a fair amount more. 3 years of ownership could amount to double digit of hours of usage - unfortunately it doesnt really help in such a situation.
At least it sounds like TM are providing decent CS
so how did u get on in the end, did u get a new PCB ?
It's quite amusing the amount of times I have seen this quoted on the forum in relation to sales made before the 1st of October 2015.
I got the pcb last week.
Today I went out and purchased some screw drivers and a soldering kit. Got home around 7pm and got to work
Its taken almost 3 hours to complete a 20 min job. I haven't used a soldering iron since secondary school... I hope I never have to use one again. It's been a painful process.. burnt myself multiple times.
Anyway once fully connected and resealed. I plugged it in. And powered it on. Nothing happened . At that point I was thinking **** this. I'm not giving up. So I put the usb cable into my PC...... The bloody wheel started to boot up. I almost cried. I'm so happy right now lol
The power light.... It's shines!!!
Phew. You can spend your giro on fags and cider this week.
Giro and fags?
Haha burnt himself MULTIPLE times with the soldering iron! You'd have thought after the first time he would have learnt not to touch the hot part!
Also... 3 hours!!!
Well done getting it working again.
From reading this Thread he was probably holding it on the wrong end for the first 2 Hours and 45 minutes...
Whilst writing a strongly worded email to the manufacture about how their product was faulty in some way and demanding compensation.
You try desoldering wires off of a small board.
