Default Double tapping keys after firmware update

I have been using this K70 RGB Mx Red for about a month now without any issues, however after the newest firmware update the keys would occasionally double tap.
For example if I type "e" it would sometimes output "ee". I have used a programme called "switch hitter" from the unofficial FAQ page to test it out and it does show that sometimes the key would double press(usually I and E keys). Is this a software or hardware issue and is there a way to fix this like rolling back the drivers?

That is a switch issue most likely. Does it happen with all keys all of a sudden after the firmware update or only with a few ones?

If it's all it might indicate a FW issue, if only a few it's the switches failing and you'll have to RMA it.

Download and rollback the firmware to see if the switch reverts back to normal. I've attached it here.

Could you walk me through how to do it? It's a .bin file

Edit : I rolled the driver back to firmware version 1.12 and it is still occuriing for my "i" key

My "E" is double tapping a lot since the firmware update as well, a few other keys now and then, but the E key is quite constant!.

The issue is called chattering and is somewhat an issue on mechanical keyboards. Mostly the immense dust causes it (Or my bloody cigarette ash flying in the room).

You can fix the issue either by blowing into the switch while you keep it held, but it was not a permanent solution for me, my entire keyboard is chattering (Not using a corsair) and did not go for RMA.

You can solve the problem by installing a free program called Chattering Fix. You make it run on the background and it removes the second command for the letter if the time interval is too short. That almost completely solves your problem.

RMA is a better option if you can wait tho.

If re-flashing the firmware doesn't help it, contact our TS team for to physically reset the keyboard. If it still won't help, we'll replace the keyboard for you.

same here with my "o" key on the K65 (non RGB and hence no corsair s/w installed). Disappointing. It's being RMA'd. Corsair support were surly and the ticketing system is as if it's from 1993.

My K65 RGB is doing the exact same thing. Every time I touch the e, i, or pp key is bouble tappps or trippple taps. Man this is really frustrating. I wish you could just post how to reset the keybboard, forgot about the b key too.... Ugggghhhh. Was working fine for about a month, then I bought the mousee and when I pplugged it in that is appporimately when the pproblem started. Driving me crazy. Anybody know the warranty pperiod on refurbished products. I hoppe I don't have to eat this 140 bucks. My 1200i is working flawleess. God this keyboard is going crazy.............................

Sounds like it could be a faulty switch if only one switch is affected.
