    Hey folks,
    As the title says my T500rs died today:cry:
    Well, I say it died but it actually failed to turn on so after a bit of investigation I reckon it might be the power pack that's dead.
    The blue light doesn't come on but if I pull the power cable out and put it back in there's that "arcing" sound.
    I should also point out that I haven't got a clue about electronics
    Anyway, to cut a long story short I was wondering if anyone knew where I could get a new power pack if possible.

    I should also state that I'm open to any D.I.Y fixes too ;)

    Thrustmaster will sell you a replacement, and spare ones have appeared on Ebay before.

    Thanks for the replies!
    I've emailed TM with the problem so hopefully they can sort me out.
    In the mean time I did some digging and found http://www.mouser.co.uk/ and they have the power packs in stock for £45.
