Saitek Throttle Quadrant stopped working (Pro Flight Yoke System)

Recommended Posts

Hello!

I use the Saitek Pro Flight Yoke with the Quadrant (connecting to the yoke via PS2) since a few years now (first WIN7 then WIN10) and it always worked flawless... Now I have a new PC (also with WIN10) and the Throttle worked normal.

But suddenly the Quadrant stopped working. When I plug in the yoke with the quadrant connected the yoke works normal and the display of the yoke is lit. But on the quadrant the little green power led is just flashing for a second on plugin and goes dark. No programms (FSUIPC, the Saitek programm... ) is recognising the quadrant. The Yoke itself works as it should.

There is no damage or whatsoever on the quadrant, as I always treated it carefully.

Anyone who knows this problem? Maybe a driver thing?

Thank you!

Do a search for Saitek and Windows Advanced Power Management.  There is/was an issue that drove me crazy for 6 months. No issues since then. May need 1) best drivers; 2) Control Panel, Devices, Human Interface Devices, Properties, disable any power management settings; and finally find one of the small applications that edit the Window Registry power management settings to remove power management settings for Saitek devices.
