Sidewinder Performing 2 Fuctions at the Same Time

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I having a problem with my Microsoft SideWinder Force Feedback 2. When I press buttons 3 or 4, which are the trim controls, the trim indicator starts to move on its own and will not stay where I want it. It's either all the way to one end. I was flying the Cessna 172 and when I brought up the radio stack, I noticed that the auto-pilot was turned on or engaged, and that seems to explain why the indicator was moving on its own so I turned off or disengaged the auto-pilot. When I press the buttons 3 or 4 again, the auto-pilot also re-engaged. For some reason, buttons 3 and 4 are performing 2 functions at the same time and I can't understand why. I checked the assignments to make sure that buttons 3 and 4 were not assigned 2 different assignments. They are only assigned trims up and down. But when I press these buttons, they turn on or engage the auto-pilot. I've already re-calibrated and there's nothing wrong with buttons 3 and 4. So what could be causing this?

 

Ken.
