Hello,
My trackir stopped working recently and I noticed the wire is damaged near the USB plug.

I tried to rewire it higher along the cord with another USB plug but it does not work!

Please can someone tell me if I have the wiring order right ? I think I got it wrong somewhere!

Looking from behind and above the plug toward the PC USB port I have:


| RED | WHITE | GREEN | BLACK |

And the last wire (only metal no color) I taped it to the USB plug metal frame

Thanks in advance for your help!

I'm really sorry for the very delayed reply to this post. It slipped through the cracks on us somehow.

I don't have the wire diagram for the TrackIR but you may still be under warranty. We would be happy to check your warranty status if you could submit a ticket at help.naturalpoint.com.

Unfortunately, It is not under warranty anymore!

So I am stuck with a repairable trackir which I will never be able to use again! :(
I would just need the wiring order for the 4 wires and it would be fixed!

Giving the extreme fragility of the USB wire near the plug (a friend of mine also has the same problem), there is no way I see myself buying another TrackIR 5 unit to see it malfunction again. I think you should really reinforce the wire near the plug!
