Default Volume wheel down freezing keyboard

Received my K95 Platinum yesterday, really liking it so far.

One thing I noticed was occasionally when turning the volume wheel downwards to lower the volume, the volume will continue to lower on its own, all the way down to zero. When this happens, the RGB pattern stays still, and is still illuminated, and the entire keyboard stops working (can't type anything). I have unplugged the USB a few times, after plugging back in it starts working.

It is extremely hard to replicate, I tried to keep scrolling the wheel down, sometimes I got it to freeze.

The wheel itself seems normal, not catching on anything, the scroll is smooth. I tried to spin the wheel lots when CUE was not open, it has not frozen yet.

Has anyone heard of something like this? Does this sound like a defective keyboard? Or bad software? Thanks in advance

Hey there, I am new to this fourm and I just registered in it to reply this message.

I know it's an old topic but this kind of freezing started to happend to my K95 RGB Platinum few weeks ago.

As you stated it is hard to replicate and it happens to my keyboard all of a sudden: sometimes I'm just browsing the web, sometimes I'm running a game (where it kind of gets the most frustrating). It just suddenly freezes, the lights keep on and I cannot type anything. Un-plug and re-plug worked, but there was a time when even replugging the keyboard in the same USB port (3.0 or 2.0 no matter which I choose) didn't work until I managed to reset to factory settings.

I've tried so far reseting to the factory sttings by holding the ESC key when I re-plug the keyboard. But so far I've done that about a dozen of times without succesfully fix it.

I tried the force firmware upgrade thing too but nothing either.

I bought the Keyboard since November 2017. I've got it for almost four months now.

I was on the latest CUE 2.23.40 version when the issue started. I now reverted back to version 2.16.87. But hey! the freezing thing even happened to the keyboard when I just had uninstalled the newest version and was about to install the previous one, I mean nothing, no CUE was installed when it froze TWICE in a row.

I was using the CUE on advance mode. Now I'm on the default one.

I'm starting to think it's a defective keyboard. So disapointing for a product which claims to be the top of the line.

You know what I just realised?

After a time passed since I reinstalled the older CUE Version and all seemed to be fine with my Keyboard, and I forgot connect my ST100 Stand back. After I did, I noticed in the CUE the ST100 it's not being detected even when the lights are by default in rainbow mode and I can connect succesfuly my Void Wireless Headset on it.

Try connecting the ST100 to a different USB 3.0 port stack on the back of the motherboard, preferable one with an Intel controller.

I did with CUE version 2.16.87 and nothing happened. However I made it worked back when I upgraded again to latest version 2.23.40. I now can visualize the ST100 in the CUE and custom its lights as usual.

I Returned to the newest CUE version since the freezing happened to my keyboard again in the previous one. It didn't seem to matter if the K95 was connected in a 3.0 or 2.0 port directly to the MOBO's ports.

I'm trying now connecting it into a PCI-E powered USP 3.0 HUB according to this post: http://forum.corsair.com/v3/showthread.php?t=138820

I wonder how long it'll last until K95 freezes again. Seriously, I would like to know if this problem has been adressed as that post is from 2015. Otherwise I would just like to know why so many users are experiencing this problem.

I have a new K95 platinum running the latest CUE version and every time I adjust the volume it crashes the Windows Lock Key as well as the Light Brightness Key.

We discussed the same issue on this thread recently:

http://forum.corsair.com/v3/showthread.php?t=175837

As far as we're concerned, this seems as a CUE related issue - as killing the process and restarting it restores normal and expected behaviour (and of course using the volume slider instantly locks those keys out of use).

As I am doing so now, I strongly encourage anyone facing this exact same issue to let Corsair know of this by submitting a ticket on support.corsair.com (or using the support ticket system at the top of this page).
