Double-Tapping Issues with Razer Blackwidow

post #1 of 38
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

I have this slight problem my A key on my keyboard likes to double register sometimes, which is really annoying when typing text, it's not so bad during gaming.
Has anyone else had this problem or does anyone know to fix this problem?
Not sure if it's hardware or software related.

Thank you, any feedback would be appreciated.

It may be dust or debris inside the switch. This is happening to me with my spacebar on my Filco Majestouch with Cherry MX Blues. One solution suggested to  me that I haven't tried yet is to put a drop or two of high percentage rubbing alcohol or isopropyl alcohol (I'd say 90% or higher) inside the switch while you have it pressed down. Then press it several times, wait 10-15 minutes for the alcohol to dry, put the cap back on and try it to see if it's any better. If not, then do this again with one or two more drops. Note: I was told that at first, the switch will feel a little different but it clears up relatively fast.

 

My reason for not doing it is it hasn't reached a point yet for me where it''s always doing it. It's just doing it on occasion.

Thanks for the suggestion, might try it later smile.gif

Earlier, I pulled the key off and gave it a few firm presses on the switch, and a bit of a wiggle and it seems to have a helped the double-tapping a little bit. But yeah, maybe a clean will help.

Yeah, it sounds to me like it needs to be cleaned. Mine is the same: if I do a really fast and long drumroll on my spacebar, then it sometimes clears right up. Other times it doesn't. I guess it depends on where the debris or dust is inside the switch. Sometimes it will be fine and then suddenly in the middle of a post it will begin doing it and sometimes I get 3-4 spaces with one hit!

 

Maybe if it works for you then it might be motivation enough for me to try it so that I no longer have to deal with it.

I couldn't find any cleaning alcohol, so I just used this Lens cleaner I had lying around and thought it was suitable to use.

It actually worked, I did pretty much exactly what you said.

I haven't had any double-tapping problems afterwards, my typing experience was much less frustrating.

So, thank you very much for the suggestion smile.gif

Wow. I wouldn't have expected that to be safe to use, but that's only because I don't know what that stuff is. It must be just a simple alcohol solution!

 

So, did it work after the first application? Or did you have to repeat it? This is making me want to try it on my spacebar's switch even though it's working fine at the moment.

I just used like 2 drops of the solution and pressed the switch a few times and then let it dry, then put the key back on and it seemed to be working fine.

Also, be careful when taking off your space bar. They're not exactly the same as a regular key on your keyboard. You might wanna read a guide for space bars.

If you decide to do it, then good luck smile.gif

Nah, I've already learned how to do it. I watched a couple of YouTube videos and then I did it myself. I wanted to take all of the caps off so that I could give my keyboard a good cleaning and so that I could maybe suck the debris out of my spacebar's switch with a vacuum (but it didn't make any difference). All that's left for me now is to take it off again and put some alcohol solution in there like you just did. This is very encouraging!

I finally did this to my Filco Majestouch because my spacebar was doing it again today, and so far, so good! Just in case anyone's like, "doing what again today?", I was getting 2 or more spaces when I would press my spacebar just once (sometimes more than 5 spaces). I could usually fix it by just doing a long "drum roll" on it in Notepad, but that wasn't working today.

 

So here's exactly what I did:

 

  1. I removed the following key caps: both the left and right Alt keys, then X, C, V, B, N, M and the key next to M that has both the '<' symbol and the comma.
  2. Then, I removed the spacebar
  3. I found a syringe that's "for oral use only" and I sucked up maybe 10-15 drops worth of 91% Isopropyl Alcohol (it's the only alcohol I have). I was trying to suck up only 4-5 drops worth, but hey. lol :)
  4. Using a toothpick, I pressed the switch all the way down. I didn't want my finger to be in the way!
  5. I carefully dropped 1 drop into the switch, and then I pressed the switch like a couple dozen times or so in rapid succession
  6. Then I added a couple more drops and pressed the switch several times again in rapid succession
  7. I noticed that I wasn't getting drops in on one side of the switch, so I added 1-2 more drops to that side and then I pressed the switch probably a hundred times or so in rapid succession because I was done adding drops. I like to be thorough. :)
  8. Then I held the switch all the way down with the toothpick for maybe 2 minutes.
  9. While holding it down, I blew gently straight down at the switch from about 10" above it just to help with evaporate the alcohol.
  10. Then 10 minutes after I added the last drop (so, right before I began holding the switch down with the toothpick), I put all the caps back on and turned my computer on
  11. I tested it, and lo and behold it's working perfectly now. No more spacebar problems! The click sound is even reduced a bit just as I was told it would be, so I know I did this correctly.

 

So yeah, I'm a happy camper now! I actually have you to thank legendarylinc because seeing it work like it did for you made me confident that this was worth doing.

It's a computer!

I think that this is overall a pretty good guide to troubleshooting a double-tap issue.

It seems as so a lot of mechanical keyboards do suffer from this time to time.

And this solution seems to have worked flawlessly.
