Okay, I changed the MPL from 8 to 9, went to Actions-Set. I then attempted to calibrate all the axes on the stick and pressed the A2 button, at which point the stick lit up white for a moment.

Looks like the problem persists, however :(

When calibrating from the configurator, you don't need to press any button on the GNX. After moving all axes, you need to end the calibration by pressing End Calibr.

Okay, I tried calibrating again by clicking "Start Calibr", moving all axes including thumbstick, and then clicking "End Calibr"

It's still showing as 255 :(

Show better the Profile-Axes tab.
Let's try a couple more settings - in Profile-Buttons, remove the uSSw stick switch (change it to Button). At the same time, in Profile-POVs, change 8way to Discrete, Set, calibrate all axes. Screenshot.
I made a video just in case.
If all else fails, then you can replace the ministik with a push-button hut from the ZIP kit. And check its work by clicking on all possible positions, having previously activated the Poll checkbox in the Profile-Buttons tab.
It is advisable to take a photo with the contact of the ministik's comb during the first disassembly.

Okay, I changed it to buttons just like the video:

I noticed a light change on the stick:

After clicking "Action-Set," I went to "Tools-Start Calibr" and moved all the axes, then clicked "Tools-End Calibr"
But otherwise, thumbstick is still unresponsive

It remains to check the last method - to replace the ministik with a push-button HAT and check its operation. A video on this process is here.

Trying to disassemble it, but I can't get that bottom hat off, no matter how much I pry or pull. The other two were no problem.

edit: Disregard. Just needed to be patient. :?

edit2:

So it looks like this could potentially be my issue. Looks like at least one of the pads came loose (right next to where it's silkscreened "X1"):

In order not to be without the GNX R for a while, while the new mini-stick arrives, I advise you to install a button-type HAT.
For replacement, contact the dealer from whom you purchased.
I would just solder and be done.

Yeah. I ordered it from the site, so hopefully no issues getting a replacement. For now, I'm going to swap it out. I don't entirely trust my soldering skills not to turn this from "bad" to "worse" :lol:

You've been a huge help, though! This was a tricky little issue to diagnose!
