Warthog throttle not being recognized by computer

Recommended Posts

I wanted to get back into DCS (after a break: ~ 3 months). I plugged my Warthog HOTAS and realized that the joystick was recognized but the throttle wasn't. I haven't had these plugged in for months. I tried reloading the driver and the bootstrap (bulk driver) trick and nothing is working. I have a Windows 10 machine. I even tried a Windows 7 laptop and got the same result. When I plug in the throttle, the computer says that the last connected USB device malfunctioned.

 

I opened up the bottom of the throttle housing and didn't see any obvious damage.

 

Is the throttle hosed or is there something I can check?

I know this is an old post but someone may need this information. My thrustmaster hotas throttle was not recognized by windows. After much searching and trying everything suggested a ran across this. https://www.ebay.com/i/233064165979?chn=ps

 

I've had my throttle for at least 6 years and I believe it's the Main PCB board. Click on 'Read full description' to see the problems a bad Main PCB board can cause.

 

I hope this helps others
