M65 PRO RGB Lighting question/issue

Just got this mouse today. The issue im having is the Scroll Wheel LEDs (shown below in the pictures)

 

When in Cue (2.21.67), I will select Static Color from the preset and then enable front zone and logo zone to pure white (R255 G255 B255) and what i get is shown below.

The "front zone" LEDs are Green and Red, while the "logo zone" is actually white.

 

When I set the color to Light Blue off of the "Basic Color" palette (R0 G191 B255) I get this:

Notice the Green LED on the left

 

When I set the color to Orange off of the "Basic Color" palette (R255 G165 B0) I get this:

The Green LED is still present on the left

 

When I set the color to Yellow off of the "Basic Color" palette (R255 G255 B0) I get this:

I know its hard to tell the difference between the yellow and orange examples, but again, the Green LED is still present on the left side.

 

The "logo" area always shows the represented color. The issue is strictly with the "front zone" portion of the mouse.

 

The only static colors that work without another color LED interupting are Red, Green and Blue. Both sides of the LED are both the same color, and sometimes it one side looks stronger (as in brightness) than the other.

 

Being that Red, Green and Blue are the only static colors to fully work, i feel like that should be telling of the issue, but i am not good with color/art stuff.

 

So after all of this, im wondering if this is a software issue, hardware issue, or im just an idiot and there is something im doing wrong. Thanks for any help!

 

PS i tried to embed the images but it did not work for some reason

The M65 RGB mice have always had a little bit of color separation in the front light shadow. There are two banks of RGB transmitters on both sides and they mix their colors together in the center area. However, the wheel gets in the way and can prevent a full mixing of the colors. So, one side is blue 255 and the other side is green 190 and they mix together. Or at least that is how it used to work. I have both my M65 RGB laser and M65 RGB Pro on the mat right now and I having a hard time seeing the color separation. I remember it being a little more evident. Maybe they were able to address this in a firmware update, but it looks like both sides now do the full intermediate colors so the blending issue is no longer there. What firmware version are you running on the M65 Pro? It should be 2.06.

 

Well, by the old rules most of your pictures make sense. However, the white one is odd. It's like the blue diode isn't turned on. Try setting a 0, 0, 255 blue and see if the blue light is cast from both sides of the wheel.

 

If the firmware is already 2.06, you might try a soft reset of the mouse (see below). You could also force update the firmware again to 2.06.

Thanks for the info. So are you saying that the pics i posted aside from the white one are normal, or were normal? It makes sense, but i guess not what i was expecting.

 

I am running 2.06 and forced and update just to try, and the same thing.

 

I set the mouse to 0,0,255, and both front LEDs are blue. As i mentioned, Red, Blue and Green static colors have no "interuptions" and both LEDs are the same colors.

 

I tried the mouse soft reset. My mouse lights never flashed, they just turned on to default color. Not sure if i was doing it right, but not really sure how i could mess it up.

 

Not sure if i want to send this back. Kind of a minor thing. But if its how its supposed to be then no big deal. Sorry if im misunderstanding you on anything

I'll see if I can find the older thread from a year or two back in which a couple of us discuss this. Your pics (save the white) are exactly what I used to see. I never pay much attention to the front LED since I can't really see. I was a bit surprised to notice how uniform the colors are now across a whole range of intermediate tones on both my M65 PRO and older RGB laser version. So, short answer is I think yours looks a tad off and the white alone is worth asking questions.

 

Maybe we can get some other users to weigh in. Lots of M65 RGB and Pro units out there.

 

Older thread: http://forum.corsair.com/v3/showthread.php?t=166036&highlight=M65. So, as of March 2017 I was seeing this to some extent. Now it is rather hard to discern in this dark room. I hadn't noticed a change and I do not know if this is the result of firmware updates or something else. If you have friendly exchange options, it might be worthwhile.

Thanks for digging up that thread. It seems to be a design "flaw". When i look at the actual LEDs themselves, and not the color shining onto whatever surface, they are the desired color. Seems to me like the colors used to mix are sneaking thru some weird cracks inside the mouse and being casted on to the surface.
