Answer to: On the joystick side, buttons doesn't respond except toggle buttonsI just had the same issue pop up last night. After isolating the problem to only the push buttons on the top of the joystick, I disassembled the hand grip. The result was 2 of the colored wires that come up from base had snapped off of the wiring board within the handle. I probably could have spliced in new pieces of wire to reconnect them but decided it was better to buy a new HOTAS all together (mine has only seen light usage for 14 months). It is unfortunate because the throttle works perfectly.
