Just got my T-50 base. Changed the cams/springs to the soft center/light springs, then mounted everything up to try it out. Unfortunately I was met with the below screen on the control panel. None of the buttons respond. The axes work just fine, though.

Side note, the cam changing process, while a pain, wouldn't be so bad, except the milling of the parts seems like it might be too tight. I had a real hard time getting the pitch cam to seat all the way so the screw holes would line up. I had to press it in place using the bearing arm assembly.

Edit: Turns out it was the PS2 connector. I changed to a different one, and now everything is working. I'll leave the rest of the post as is, in case someone has the same problem.
