Is it possible to fix a K70 keyboard with mushy stabilizers?


Recommended Posts

Hi, I just purchased the Corsair K70 (CH-9000076) with the (Cherry MX Blue keys). First, I really like the keyboard in general. I like the look of it. I like all the features of it. I most of the feel of it. However, there's a couple keys that are just not right: Right Shift, Enter, and Backspace. All three are mushy and stiff. Each time I use any of those keys it feels like I've abruptly had my mechanical keyboard replaced with a rubber dome keyboard. It's making me crazy.


I did some reading about the issue sounds like it could be related to the stabilizers. However, the only fix I see, requires taking the stabilizers out of the keyboard and clipping plastic pieces off them. I'm not sure I'm willing to void the warranty of the keyboard in such a way.


I'd like to repair or replace the keyboard and keep it. I like it; I really do. However, this inconsistent key feel is just unacceptable for a keyboard at this price point. I'm really close to returning it.


I'd like to know if there's another option. Is it possible, it's just a fluke the keyboard came with THREE bad stabilizers? Or, is this a common attribute of the model I purchased? Is it something that can be fixed by Corsair or by myself? Or, is this just the nature of the model?

I would contact your retailer and see whether or not they will replace the keyboard for you. If they do, i would then open it and test the keys before returning home.


If not, Request an RMA to replace the keyboard via Corsair. Make sure you upload a picture of your invoice as proof of purchase.



You may be eligible for a prepaid shipping label as the item is less than 30 days old though i'm not sure if Corsair has changed this or not.

Toasted, I'm within the thirty days. I'm just loath to commit to an RMA process if I can't get some sort of confirmation that I'm experiencing a known possible defect that can be repaired. Are there any Corsair repair people on the forums?


Thanks for the info. I'll give it some consideration.
