They used a dirt cheap switch for the middle button, so no doubt it will fail again. I ended up adapting to never using middle button after it became unusable. I'm still not using it even on my new...

I imagine some of the leds inside of the rgb led have died. The problem I have with my k70 lights is that one or two won't match the others (assuming pure white), but it can change from key to key...

Yeah, it's the red sub-led that's gone already. It hasn't fixed itself in a few days, so I'm guessing it's now stuck or dead. I did try the force firmware update but it didn't make any difference.

No, it's quite dry. I also keep it covered to try and prevent dust build up when not in use. I have tried a few tricks to see if it works, and sometimes it does appear to give a temporary solution. ...
