    Hello,

    I started up my computer this morning and noticed that 14/20 of the RGB leds on the back of the PCB stopped working. The ones that do work are from underneath the esc key to the f8 key. There weren’t any problems prior to this when I got the keyboard around November and I haven’t touched the PCB or software since then.

    Help/Guidance to fix this would be much appreciated!

    Thank you

    Hi.

    Sorry for your inconvenience.

    I think it has nothing to do with software, but hardware.
    14th RGB would have been broken.

    Could you replace it with a new one?

    Thanks.

    P.S: Could you tell me your order number?

    Hello,

    How would I go about replacing the 14th RGB? looking at the PCB from the backside of the keyboard I don’t see any solder joints. Is it on the other side of the keyboard? is the 14th RGB specifically the first one that isn’t lighting up? and where could i get a SMD RGB?

    I don’t have an order number as the transaction was done through email and such because I paid in 2 parts.

    Thank you for the quick response!

    Hi

    There are 4 soldering pads on a RGB LED.(I added a photo)

    I mean the 14th RGB is the one that is starting not to work.

    And you probably have my email telling your order status.
    Just send it back to me.

    Thanks.
