Thrustmaster tx wheel not center

Recommended Posts

Hello

hope you guys can help me.

i have the issue that my thrustmaster tx wheel is a little off center.

i friend of mine has done the firmware update to the latest version.

can i calibrate the wheel on the Xbox or in game?(F1 2019) 

I don’t have a laptop or pc at home so i can’t calibrate it that way.

Yes you can reset the centre point of your wheel. (I've done it on pc for my T300 and it works very well. The process is the same for TX. (The instructions are copied below from the Thrustmaster site (or go to TM support and look at FAQ for your wheel).

It depends which wheel rim you are using, but here's a direct copy from TM site - 

 

'Reconfiguring the racing wheel's center value (If the racing wheel is slightly off-center in the Control Panel)   - If using a Xbox One™, we recommend performing this procedure in the Xbox One™ system's menu (not in a game). - If using a PC, we recommend performing this procedure via the Windows® Desktop (not in a game), after exiting the Control Panel. 
 
1) Connect the racing wheel's USB cable (on Xbox One™ or on PC), then wait for the auto-calibration phase to end. 
 
2) Turn the racing wheel fully to the left (until you reach the stop). 
 
3) Turn the racing wheel fully to the right (until you reach the stop). 
 
4) Make sure that your racing wheel is perfectly centered ; while holding it in this position,  press the: Y, X & MODE buttons simultaneously  (FLASH, PIT & MODE buttons on the 458 CHALLENGE GTE wheel & 599XX EVO 30 Alcantara® wheel) (K, N & MODE buttons on the F1 wheel).

5) The racing wheel's LED briefly changes colour, then reverts to its initial colour. This means that the wheel's center value has been reset and automatically saved to the device's internal memory (you do not need to repeat the procedure every time you connect the racing wheel); this applies to all of the TX's wheels (458 ITALIA, 458 CHALLENGE GTE,  F1, etc.). 
 
YOU ARE NOW READY TO RACE!

Thanks for the reply.

tried it a couple of times but it does not work maybe because i have the open wheel add on?

the light on the base does not change color when i press the button combo.

it would appear that buttons 10, 3 and MODE should be the key combo. Hold 10 & 3 with two fingers of one hand then press the MODE with the other hand.

If this does not work I would check the firmware was updated to v55 and use the default wheel rather than the Open Wheel rim.

It may just be that because the Open Wheel came out after the TX base that the update lacks this function. If you really can't achieve it, drop TM a tech support email, they may be able to check or fix it for the next TX firmware.

Thanks! 
yes i think the problem is that the wheel came out later.

i sold my 458 italia wheel maybe later on i will buy a Ferrari F1 wheel.

Send a E-mail to thrustmaster now wait for a reply.

Yes 3 + 10 + mode should do it.

(and meanwhile in case anyone wants the key combination for the T300, it's 5 + 2 + mode).

I just tried it with my open wheel addon on my T300 and it does work (but for me it's 5 + right paddle(2) + mode).

So I would give it another go - remember, full left rotate, full right rotate, back to exact centre, then press 3 + 10 + mode briefly.

Then look in TM control panel to see if your centre position is 50.0%.

BTW, do NOT worry if it doesn't end up in the centre when it self calibrates, it does not always, simply because of the speed of rotation, it sometimes spins and stops off centre - what matters is the 50.0% in the control panel.

The pdf I linked to clearly states in the XBox System menu, not in-game.

Where is the Xbox systems menu ???

I’m having the same problem but I have the 458 Italia wheel
