Default Corsair K70 RGB keeps typing todays date and time.

Hi there. I bought a Corsair k70 RGB in early 2016. And been very happy ever since.
Today tho when I powered on my PC, the keyboard was acting weird.
Keyboard keeps "pasting" today's date and time over and over again, almost like it's stuck. And I can't type or do anything else.

I've uninstalled CUE software from my computer - didn't help.
I did keyboard troubleshooting with windows 10 - didn't help.
On the back side of the keyboard there's a (as I think) reset button that you have to reach with a pen. I did that - didn't help
And I also read someplace that holding ESC button while plugging the keyboard into PC resets the keyboard - didn't help

So I wonder if anyone else had this type of problem, and maybe the problem may be somewhere else.

Thank you for your time.

Give the kb a good shake and see if any debris comes out, or blow it out with compressed air.

I actually did take the keyboard apart and blew it with an air compressor. That did not help.
But it seems that the problem solved itself. I just unplugged the K70 and left it alone for few hours. After that it started working as intended :)
