No connection, nothing dead both on USB and straight to the wheel base. Could be the board maybe?
have you tried to connect the V3 to another PC via USB?
If it does not work on another PC and is not even seen as a peripheral, it could be the PCB which could cost € 20/25.
Open a Fanatec support ticket.
I agree with the above guy that there is a good chance they are fixable, but the reality is I don't think it will be world ending going from one load cell pedal to another. Once you get to load cell you're just incrementally getting better until you hit hydraulics.
