Default Trigger detent not working on Warthog HOTAS. Btn#6 is in locked stage

gents I got an issue with my Warthog HOTAS I can't resolve.
The dual-stage trigger seems to be locked.
In the windows system I see that button 6 is pressed all the time.
I already did re-flash the firmware from Bootloader mode without any change.
Any help?

Is the stick under warranty still? if so have thrustmaster look at it.

If not I would take it apart carefully and inspect.

I have had three switches go on my warthog stick over the years, replaced them or fixed them myself in the end.

Thrustmaster just agreed to fix my throttle because of a stuck switch and mine is just inside the two year warranty, so depending on age they may agree to fix it under warranty, worth a try?

It could be the switch, however, i had a cougar stick that did the same thing as a result of static shock and TM said that the board in the stick would need to be replaced. hoping in your case its a bad momentary switch.
