Ok so im sorry but i actually dont own this game but i have no where else to ask this. I got this wheel at a goodwill for $20 like 2 days ago and it was working great but i plugged it into my PC just fine and it was working but 900 degree turning wasnt on and neither was forcefeedback. After downloading the Driver and doing a button combination (R3, Select, Left paddle shifter) it switched between 200 and 900 degree turning. but THEN i decided to be a ♥♥♥♥up and decide to do (R3,Select,Right paddleshifter) and after doing that my wheel only turns all the way to the right and wont turn to the left when it calibrates and now both LED lights are blinking green at the same time and no buttons are working. ANY help would be appreciated. Also im on windows 10. and i tried to delete the drivers and redownload them but it didnt work the first time. i might do it again. any suggestions? Im at my wits end here.
Do you think its a broken encoder? but even if it was it would still work a little bit right? i mean NOTHING works. at all. Its being detected in windows i think but thats about it. I just got this like a day ago
Oh and i just found out that when i plug it into other USB sockets the lights dont blink at the same time but at different times.
I just wanna go go back to how it was before

It should be R3, select, right paddle to swap 900/200 mode, left paddle should set 100% FFB (not that I ever remember doing that?)

blinking leds mean the calibration failed

You may need to take the top off and check it is moving correctly

most problems seem to come from the mechanism that swaps between modes, which is driven by a second small motor

If I take off the backplate can I reattach my shifter? I really like it. Also the second video seems to be my problem actually. But mines doing something a bit different. After the failed calibration it just goes stays there and blinking and no buttons work. Thank you for your help. But again can I reattach my shifter without too much trouble?

Not sure what you mean, but I suspect the shifter is attached to the casing so you would have to reassemble the casing to get it working. Have a check on youtube, you will find a few other videos of different failures which may lead you to a more complete answer... but the main failure appears to be the 900/200 switch mechanism and the way to fix it is to make a way to move it manually with a lever or rod passing through the casing (detaching the return spring first). It might be possible to replace the small motor (if you could find the make and model), if you have the right tools for the job

I mean is it easy enough to reattach the casing? i dont have much tools aside from a few screwdrivers lying around. and im not replacing the motor. I think its the 900/200 switch causing my issues. Thanks for your help i really appreciate it
