djmadder- Contact customer support, but it's likely a power adapter issue. Try unplugging the AC adapter from the wall and the wheel, wait 30 seconds, then replug the AC adapter back in. Make sure to plug the AC adapter into a working wall port or power strip (Test the AC port with a lamp).

"Polyphony Digital continues to work on fully supporting the Logitech G25 and G27, though Yamauchi admits he would like a “new steering device soon”…"
For goodness sake, give Kazunori Yamauchi a new G27 to work with!

This is some good news, thanks. I am looking forward towards full support of the G27 in GT5. Just to adjust the e-brake button towards the steering wheel so you can use the wheel for drifting, now i need to take the PS controller.

The few details we do know are:
The G25/27 seem to work 90% functionality wise.
The buttons need to be mapped (Seperate menu screen)
The H-Shifter + clutch need better response (firmware issues on Logitechs end?)
Everyone will be happy once Kaz is able to rework the code with a possible firmware change from Logitech...
Otherwise, I see many people purchasing that new wheel coming out!
G27 + Playseats EVO + GT5 = Bliss

binici -What do you mean by "better response"?
On the clutch and firmware thing: PC Sim racing games like iRacing and GTR2 don't have any issues at all with the clutch, and with my testing in GT5, it doesn't have a particular problem with the clutch either. The only issue I can find at all regarding the G25/27 and clutch on a GT game is some vague reports of a "clutch cheat", in which I assume requires modifications of the hardware wheel based in these reports. Just to throw this out there, things like this can be eliminated in software: Implement a minimum clutch depress value. If the clutch is disengaged to shift, the game keeps the clutch delayed for at least X milliseconds, OR until the clutch registeres a value that the game recognizes as engaged, whichever is longer. That is, of course, if this is what this whole kerfluffle is all about.

I purchased the G27 a couple months back in anticipation of GT5. Compatible means just that, compatible. Doesn't really matter who is pointing the finger. Logitech states the G27 is compatible which is not true. Problems with shifting and button mapping are serious compatibility issues.
There is a bunch of finger pointing on both sides. As a consumer I really don't care who is at fault. Logitech and Poly needed to get out of their egos and make the wheel fully compatible.
If you bought a G27 specifically for GT5, return it. Apparently Logitech will only respond if it hurts their bottom line.
Where do I return my G27 for a full refund?

Would appreciate any guidance to get even the '~90%' functionality people are reporting with g27 in gt5.
Purchased a G27 in June 2010 and have used 3 times in anticipation of GT5 release. With GT5P I can get the well reported H-shifter and clutch functioning well (with no paddle shifter capability as expected).
However, in GT5 I am getting the following:
- H-shifter mapping completely off. Second gear not recognized no matter how you shift into it (i.e. neutral then second, etc.). Third gear (middle top position of H shifter) puts the car in second, fourth into third, etc. No reverse capability on H-shifter at all. Again, all of this works fine in GT5P so I know it is not a problem with my G27 hardware.
- Paddle Shifters? Nada. The right hand shifter actually downshifts the car. The left hand shifter does nothing. Can't verify if this is an issue with G27 hardware because they were never meant to work in GT5P.
Result is that G27 is totally useless in GT5 unless I put it into automatic transmission which is an absurd use of this hardware.
Just so you know, following this procedure:
1) Everything off and unattached (PS3 turned off in the back).
2) Plug G27 into separate wall outlet, then into PS3 USB port.
3) Power up PS3 and launch GT5.
Add me to the list of bewildered consumers as to how there could be no native support of this device given it was advertised as compatible.
I'm happy to wait if it is clear that Polyphony and Logitech are going to work this out. But given that I can't even get what most people report as working (i.e. at least paddle shifters), will Logitech verify that my hardware will even work before the warranty expires?
Can anybody point out something I may be missing?
