ガイド紹介

Saitek X52 Pro is a great Flight System Controller, however it is not without flaws.

For me as well as for some other users, the shooting trigger sometimes stops working. This doesn't mean you have to throw it away, instead with a little bit of patience, you can fix it yourself.

  1. Patience :)
  2. Please take a moment and note how your joystick is assembled and all the parts that can be dettached. I recommend taking a few photos before dismantling it. With the Phillips screwdrive unscrew the #1 to #4 screws in Fig. 1. Using the Torx T10 head, unscrew the #5 (Fig. 1), #6, #7 and #8 screws (Fig. 2)

    • Using the Torx T10 head, unscrew the #5 (Fig. 1), #6, #7 and #8 screws (Fig. 2)

    • Screws 5 & 6 have a larger thread pace than 7 & 8, although the heads are the same. So please take care when you screw them back on (Fig. 3).

    • Using your hand, unscrew #9 (Fig. 2). Please note that you cannot completely remove this screw, but you don't need to do this anyway.

  4. Carefully remove the plastic bracket  and the support holding the "Pinkie trigger" by pushing it towards the trigger (Fig. 4). DO NOT force its removal, or you can break it.
    • Carefully remove the plastic bracket and the support holding the "Pinkie trigger" by pushing it towards the trigger (Fig. 4).

    • DO NOT force its removal, or you can break it.

    • Be careful not to break the Pinkie trigger wire!

    • Remove the stick cover that will expose the contacts and wiring (Fig. 5)

    Under a small plastic cap, on the adjustment knob for the handrest. Is a REVERSE threaded phillips head screw. Removing this, allows you to remove the adjustment knob. this permits the handle being removed from the hand rest. Which then allows you to remove the 3 phillips head screws holding the pinkie switch to the handrest. Reducing the risk of damaging the wires.

  5. Note the small metal plate.
    • Note the small metal plate.

    • Bend it just a little from the middle so that pushing the trigger actually pushes the small blue switch inside the stick.

    • Test the trigger before putting back the plastic cover

    • Remember when screwing the screws that 5&6 go to the bottom sides and 7&8 go at the top.

    Dont bend the metal plate, adjust the plastic pushing out from inside the triggers by tightening down the two small screws, or loosen them as needed

    • Note: Inside the trigger there is two screws which can be used instead of either extend or retract the pin that presses the metal plate. Try adjusting this first.

Amazing this is what I was exactly looking for!! My trigger stopped work but only heard a single click. Once i opened it up one of the contacts was stuck down. A little adjustment and once again it was working. Getting the hand guard off was very tricky. I did damage the cable guide thing for the pinky switch but it still works. Thank you soo much!!!

Glad it helped you! It appears to be a common fault with this joystick.

Sorry to hear about the damaging cable, but I imagine is fixable if it breaks over time.

Fixed it!! Thank you so much for this guide! I ended up over bending it and then tried to straighten it out again and then it shot off somewhere, but luckily the piece fits back in and then i tweaked it until it worked! -Nate

This helped a great deal! The Thumb POV had a screw that dropped out and prevented it from going left. By using this I found out why it wasn't working by disassembling it and solved my problem. Thanks!

I was kind of hoping this would be a full Disassembly, as i have much more intricate problem with mine.

Sorry to hear this Paul, however if you are feeling brave enough, perhaps go further and create another guide for this device.

My problem is that *!&$!&$^ 3-position dial!!! It has no detents so I get absolutely no tactile feedback on what *!&$!&$^ position it is in. I have to look at both the %#*@ led on the stick and then double check on the throttle display as it can easily be in between positions in which case the throttle display goes blank and you lose all control of your ship. This has cost me Millions of credits due to lost ships in Elite Dangerous and has had me on the verge of having a stroke from getting so upset!!! Is there a way to fix or replace that &&^&^$^ dial with one that actually has solid clicks for each position??????

Thanks this help, but I think I actually damaged the pinky cable, but nothing visual. the pinky swich isn’t responding.. Any suggestions on how to fix it?

Bastiaan Schut - 返信

You might need to solder the thin wire back… for this you would need a soldering iron (or “pen”) or ask someone to do it for you.

Great guide but is it possible to disassemble the rest of the joystick that part where the hats are and the mode switch? I’m struggling with the removal of the hats.

Bartlomiej Sokolowski - 返信

Did not go further, sorry and I am not risking further damage for mine, since it works perfectly now :)

My problem lies with the metal stick being loose so that there is play between the joystick handle and metal post to the base. Also the P2 switch does not work so I have to open the base to tweak or replace the switch. All of the LEDs work fine. I only have these two issues. Have you any exploded photos of these?

Teargas Horse - 返信

Nope, those are the only photos I took, sorry

I was able to dissemble the stick, but could not figure out how to tighten the ring around the stick. At least your article showed how to take it apart, thank you.
