Over sensitive H key

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I am using a steel series 6gv2 and the h key extremely sensitive. If you just touch the key it actuates. Is there anyway to fix this? Any help is appreciated.thumb.gif

Use dimes to measure the actuation force compared to other keys on your board. Each dime weights 5g. Does the key sit flush with the other keys in the same row?

the h actuates at 13 dimes but I tried others and I couldn't get them to actuate with 20 plus one penny (ran out of dimes) it sits flush with the rest of the row except g seems higher then all the others

Has it always been like this or did you just notice it? Have you been using it for a long time? Also, how would you rate your soldering skills?

I'm really not sure if you can wear down a spring like that. I was thinking that a 45g spring accidentally slipped in there somehow (or its just defectively weak somehow). I think your best bet would be to get into contact with steelseries and see if they can RMA your board. If not you can order a black switch for $1.75 from wasdkeyboards and desolder the old one off and solder the new switch in, but that would void your warranty.
