    Hi!

    Okey, so on Christmas Eve my Thrustmaster T300 stopped working. It's so weird, because I used it in a couple of races (I played max 30 mins) before I had to go deliver some presents. And when I came back to play some more, it was completely dead. The power light wouldn't turn on, the wheel wouldn't spin as it normally does at start-up, and the fan didn't turn on either. So I guess it's as dead as it can be. I tried unplugging the USB and put it back in the PS4, I tried restarting the ps4 system, I tried connect it to my laptop, I tried using other sockets.. Nothing. The thing is, I'm always so careful with the wheel, and I always unplug the wheel when I'm gone to make sure nothing happens when I'm away. So nothing should really happen here. Thing is, I bought it in July 2015. So what can I do in terms of getting it repaired or get a replacement? Do I have to get a new one?

    Thank you guys.

    Connect it to a PC/laptop as well for an additional test.

    To me that sounds like a problem with the power supply.
    You can try this:
    TX POWER SUPPLY REPLACEMENT

    Exactly the same happened to me today. Got a tap in the middle of a race, countersteered and then it said "Controller disconnected". Wheel is completely dead now.

    Did you repair your wheel yet?

    Find a 24V psu with more than 3A rating and it will work. When it's completely dead its the psu.
