Couple of suggestions. Open Control Panel, Then click "system" icon, then "device manager". Expand "Universal Serial Bus Controllers". If there is a exclamation mark next to one of the USB ports then there is a hardware conflict. If so try using a different port. See if there are driver updates from the joystick and yoke manufacturer. I have a CH Yoke and there is software on the CH site for a control manager program that can be used to calibrate the yoke. Sometimes I need to do a rescan using the control manager software to have the Yoke work correctly before opening FSX.

Yeah - sometimes - weirdly happens to me. I go into FSX >> Alt O E C >>> then re-tick the [Enable Controller(s)] check box.
Normally if controller is plugged in before FSX start up - - - no problems.
Also with sound config - - - sometimes when I start using FSX - I notice my sound setting are back at some useless default, - - - so I have to go Alt O E S , and re-set my sound output correctly again.

Another possibility - - - your controller is old and needs replacing.
I had to buy and second Logitech Extreme 3D Pro recently - first one fell victim to reverse engineering Smile Smile 🙂 🙂 🙂
