post #51 of 101
Any ideas on what causes the backlights to go out, any possible fixes and/or has logitech figured it out yet?

Not sure if it was early boards or not. I've not heard of any others on OCN that I know of past the OP and one other.

I purchased this keyboard on release day and I've had no issues. No official word on the issue by Logitech and if there was I've not found the link to any proof. If anyone else has any info to the contrary would be appreciated as well.

I also got this board on near release date, and have not had any issues whatsoever with the backlights.

Thread Starter 
Im on my 3rd one and it had a whole row of lights out right out of the box. I havent had time to call Logitech. They just keep sending me new ones. Its been installed on a couple of different motherboards so I dont believe its something wrong with my particular setup. Ive tried talking to people higher up in the claims process so it got more visability but doesnt seem to be doing a whole lot. Ill report back what happens with this most recent one. Maybe Ill just start collecting G710's ha. I really like the board or I wouldnt keep doing all this.

Like Ducky, Das, and CoolerMaster it tends to take a while for keyboard vendors to refine their QC checking and technical bugs.

Damn thing happens with BMW's too.

So just don't get Geekwhacked about it and perhaps wait for the bugs to get worked out is the prudent path whenever a new manufacturer enters the Mechanical Keyboard biz.

The keyboard looks much more "professional" with the black mod - great job dude, thanks for sharing smile.gif!
+rep to you!

I don't know if it's clear in the picture, but the edges of some keys aren't painted properly leading to backlight bleeding. Oh Logitech..

Anyone else have the same issue?

I know this is an old post - but yes I had the same issue with that same ish look on the top of the letter "T" seeing as I paid £150 for the keyboard, I returned it for an exchange.

Has anyone actually taken the time to figure out why the LEDs are going out and if they can be fixed without getting the keyboard replaced? i.e. like a bad solder joint for the LED leads?

Anyone tried to make the Spacebar more silent?

It's extremely annoying with the clacking noise.

I'm in the same boat. Got this keyboard as a gift and it was gorgeous on day 1, then on day 1, 3 hours later it lost the lights from 0-draw a line through-Page Up. I don't think it's enough of a problem to try to RMA the thing with logitech OR newegg, esp. since it's a gift. I wanted to try fixing it, but i'd need to learn soldering. Luckily a friend wants to teach me, or could do it for me if it's too hard. Anyone know of any disassembled pics, videos, or links?

@Svarog http://www.overclock.net/t/491752/mechanical-keyboard-guide. You can try doing some custom switch swapping. Though the trend is normally to put harder, space bar switches in for ALL the keys, or so i've heard. The high pitch click might be a secondary spring that holds the space bar level though, would have to take it apart to see. smile.gif
