Default question for corsair rep or someone k65 lux

i just took apart a k65 lux. i bought it from someone used. a kid spilled milk on it, and shorted out some contacts.

on inspecting the interior of the keyboard. i found a extremely small micro switch on the control board. i was wondering what it was for. i got the keyboard working, and tried pressing it but nothing happened.

forgot to take a picture of it sadly and already have the keyboard back together working good as new.

also is there a way to sync up the lighting. with a Logitech mouse, and ASUS strix rgb graphics card. i would have gone with a corsair mouse as well but they just dont fit my hand shape as well as a g502.

There really isn't a way - each vendor has their own RGB system and there is no industry standard for this.

by chance do you know what that micro switch is for. I was cleaning some other corsair keyboards, and looks like they all have one. its right next to the bios switch and usb port. on all the corsair keyboards i have taken apart so far. theres no external access to the switch. only by taking the keyboard apart can you get to it.

Probably just there for the factory and might be something to clear the firmware.

*Mutters*.....Now I want to flip it.

would this switch happen to have a very small hole on the Casing above/below it.. most likely the Button to put it into boot loader mode for firmware update/fix situations. on the k95 Platinum there is a small hole under the Flip Down Feet that gives you access to pressing it

edit,, Same for the K65 Lux
