K70 non-RGB left ALT key red LED sometimes goes out

I noticed the other day that my left ALT key was not illuminated. I tapped it and the LED immediately came back on. I thought nothing of it at the time.

 

Since then, it happened again. I pressed it a few times in a row and it went on and off a few times. I decided to then pop the key cap off and test. I must have pressed it a hundred times and the LED never went off again.

 

Is the LED dying on that one specific key?

Yes, I think the led is having issues. Most likely you pressing the key a few times "temporaily fixed" the broken led connection to the PCB. But now it must have broken completely, or the led itself is dying and the pcb connection has nothing to do with it..

Actually, the LED is on and never went off again during the time I had the key cap off.

 

I guess I'll just keep an eye on it for now. If other keys start to exhibit the same thing within the warranty period I might setup an RMA.
