Default Where to get mainboards of TMWH not from TM

I've emailed TM and their prices are huge. So I would like to get in touch with their supplier directly and have them send me the board at a much reduced rate. Pointers? Throttle main PCB (the top right below the double decker)

Why do you believe that their supplier would do business with you and be willing to sell a single board to you at a much reduced rate?

If that is not the board you need (can't beat the price) you might try this guy .

I dont know but yes I am familiar with this guy and we talked before. I am just evaluating my options with the minimal costs to get it working again.

I had this problem 3-4 mo ago, if LED doesn’t stay on it’s board number one. Fairly easy to replace.

So your windows can not recognize the device?

Happened to me too!
Was board number one.

I contacted TM and got one shipped to me for less than 60€.

Just FYI...

How much is the board itself excluding shipping have they charged you and when was it that you got it replaced?

They dont have to deal with me, but with a LOT of angry customers who dont want to benefit thrustmaster the courtesy of routing a surplus through them for.a no good defective board that demands change every now and then.


If the chinese supplier can deal with singletons that would mean he would sell more boards and I want to get at least two boards since I am in the third world country which happens to be away from the manufacturer and not covered by the inherently flawed thrustmaster warranty which does NOT cover the place of use but the place of purchase, in this case, BHPhotovideo.

Does that answer your question?
