K95 RGB repeating letter 'n'

Hello - just curious to see if anyone else is experiencing this issue. I have a K95 RGB with the latest software updates. Several weeks ago I started nnoticing extra "n" when I typed. I tried reinstalling the software and rolling back some updates to see if it would fix the issue and nnothing. I finally opened a ticket and they had me try several things from cleaning the keyboard to installing a new firmware. The firmware they gave me to install seems to have made things worse. I'm goinng to sennd the keyboard inn for repair.

 

*PS* The extra nnn's typed in this message were left unedited for emphasis. It happens more the faster I type and only with the letter 'n'.

 

Initially I thought it was a software issue, but it only happens with the letter n, so I thought it must be a hardware issue. Ever since I isnntalled the new firmware (custom - sennt by corsair) it seems to have made the problem worse, so it could also be software related. My guess is a combinationn of both, where the switch for the n doesn't get release fast enough and the keyboard is poling the key again.

 

I only use it to type, I don't play games or anythinng that required trigger speeds. Is there a setting that I can tweak specifically for onne letter? Say to delay the polling rate for the letter 'n' - It's really annnoying when you're trying to work or write an email and have to continue to go back to replaced all those double n's

It's key chatter. Use a software called SwitchHitter to confirm the issue. You could try carefully cleaning the switch with isopropyl alcohol, see if it makes a difference. I had the same issue with my old K70 RGB (on about 20 keys), and Corsair Support offered to replace it for me, but I couldn't stay without a keyboard for that long (I used it for work) so I had the store I got it from replace it for me.

 

Best of luck.

Thanks - I have previously cleaned it with isopropyl alcohol. I tried SwitchHitter (thank you for the recommendation - I didn't know about this tool or keychatter).

I tested it with SwitchHitter and everything seemed to be working normal. Didn't get any failures. I read about KeyChatter and that definitely sounds like what I've been experiencing.

It's a little frustrating and scary to know that this can simply happen overnight on a good switch.
