Hi,

 

something rather odd happened today, my almost new k70 mk.2 died. No reaction at all when i plug it in to the computer. No lights, no key input. So I wondering, does it have a fuse or something like that. I've tested it on two different computers. Nothing...

UPDATE:

The keyboard works as normal, but the RGB is not working at all... None of the lights are working. Not even the CAPS, Scroll Lock or Num Lock light is working.

Added an update. Added lights in last sentence.

You titled your post, “does the K70 MK.2 have a fuse?”. In order know that, someone would need to have taken apart their Keyboard previously or now in order to look for you. They likely would have voided their own warranty in the process. Either way the answer is obscure and people aren’t going to bother to read it. It’s also unnecessary.

 

You have a brand new keyboard and something has gone tragically wrong. Contact the vendor, send it back as defective for a replacement. Contact Corsair, send it in for replacement. It’s a rather big ask for someone to walk you through the dismantling, repair, and reassembly of a product and there are going to be very few who have the knowledge and time to do so. Even then, it would be the wrong move for a new keyboard.

First off: It was never a question about dismantling the keyboard, it was a question about there being a fuse on the light circuit on the keyboard. Because that would explain why ALL the lights died, but the rest of the keyboard working as normal.

 

Second: how strong is the fuse in-line there. is it a 5, 10 or maybe a 15 WATT fuse. The keyboard was RMA'ed pretty quick, but I asked due to the fact this happened when I moved it from my gaming PC to my work laptops docking on which I normally use a K63 at work without any issues.

 

Third: If there is a fuse in there, could be an idea to put under a cover so people could change it easily on their own. If it would happen to blow out.

 

So if there is a fuse in-line, cool, then it worked as intended, but maybe it a tad to small. If not, bejeezus, that keyboard is fragile, or there was something that packed a real punch in that docking station for some reason or another.
