I am too having a similar problem with the Logitech Driving Force GT wheel on the PS3. I have had no problems with this wheel since I bought it to be used with Gran Turismo 5 Prologue on the PS3. I bought Gran Turismo 5 a few days ago, and last night, the wheel malfunctioned. This happened during normal use. The calibration is messed up and the wheel does not return to the middle home position. After plugging it into the PS3, it continually tries to calibrate, with the center GT LED light blinking on and off. After turning off the PS3, driving wheel, reconnecting, powering on, .... lauch GT5, when I turn the wheel to the right, the game does not respond. The other buttons appear to work. I removed the cover to the wheel and it seems that there is a dc servo motor and a separate encoder with four wires (black, yellow, white, green) that connects to the circuit board. It seems likely a problem with either the optical encoder (coupled to the motor through gears), or possibly a failure on the circuit board?

I just had the same problem with Driving Force GT. It worked fine for GT5 prologue. It stopped steering in the middle of GT5 and the horn light started flashing. I called customer service and after much back and forth he said it was probably an overheated power supply problem and he will be sending us a new power supply. The voltage out of the power supply is fine, so I think this is baloney, but we'll see.
Has anyone come up with a believable solution to this problem that some many people are having with the new GT5?

I bought a Logitech GT wheel last week for use with GT5, DiRT2, F1 2010. I've had problems with the steering and force feedback cutting out during races on GT5 with the centre button flashing.
I've tracked the problem down to electrical interference, I can cause the problem when switching on/off the kitchen light (which is a flourescent light), also when the heating pump starts I've seen it cause the problem.
I tried the wheel power supply in a different socket (a filtered block) and I could not cause the problem by switching the kitchen light on/off, but the heating pump still caused a problem.
The main wheel seems to be working fine. I need to contact Logitech to see if they can supply a new power supply. I've only had the wheel a week but if I return it there are no stock to get a replacement, and I suspect it won't fix the problem.
