Trying to pair a new joystick sold by 1F. Two leds blink and then turn off. While blinking I can move xy but once they go dark machine stops. Light on usb dongle also starts blinking. I have tried removing batteries, switching usb ports, cycle through modes but all have led to same situation. Anyone else seeing similar issue? What else can I try?
Mine disconnects after a certain amount of inactivity then when I first got it all I had to do was touch the mode button and it turned on again but now it’s getting worse. I have to touch the mode button several times to get it to connect again.
Mine doesn’t lose the mode it just shuts down or goes to sleep and then to wake it back up I just had to tap the mode button and it was good to go again. But now it seems like I have to tap it Several times to get it going again. I tried all 4 usb plugins and all the same, new batteries.
ah okay, I understand. On mine a short press is enough to wake it up, but it is a new gamepad and not used (just for testing purpose in the lab, not on a machine in a workshop).
I have made the experience that generally input hardware that has buttons or joysticks can have a limited lifetime. I don’t know if this applies to the gamepad but maybe a device like the @SatoerControl panel with its robustness and its IP67 switches fits better to a CNC machine.
