Default K70 rapidfire warranty

I was playing some games on my PC and then my street had a power outage. My k70 now scrolls through random colours which are different to every key, and none of the buttons register. My k70 is basically a $200 potato. I was wondering if this falls under warranty and if I could get a replacement because the keyboard is barely 5 months old. Thanks.

Sounds like the keyboard may have entered Demo Mode. Try unplugging the keyboard, hold ESC, plug the keyboard back in, and release ESC after 5secs. The keyboard should blink and return to normal.

Hope you were able to fix it!

You should look into Battery Backups (UPS) to prevent electronic damage. Better safe than sorry. You don't want more potatoes do you?

Fun fact: the keyboard can go into demo mode if it gets power but no signal from the computer. This could have happened when the power outage struck and you powered up the system afterwards.
