K70R Keyboard - LED Preset and CAPS LOCK light work, but keys do not


Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I've had my Corsair K70 for about 2 years and I've had no quarrels with it. But today after I unplugged it and took off the keys to clean it it has not been responding to any keypresses. The LED preset light shows up red and the CAPS LOCK light is also on, but the backlit keys are not on and they do not respond to anything when pressed, including any of the media keys bar. However, the volume scroller which works fine. I've tried a few things to get it working, these being:

  • Unplugging and replugging into 3.0 and 2.0 ports
  • Restarting my machine
  • Attempting to reset the keyboard by moving the switch at the back to BIOS then back to 1
  • Using the BIOS switch to access my machine's BIOS (keyboard doesn't work here either)
  • Plugging it into another machine (yields same results)
  • Uninstalling and reinstalling the keyboard drivers


I hope I'm doing something wrong because forking out another £100~ on another wouldn't be great. :(:


Thanks in advance for any help given.
