Razer Deathadder Keyboard, LED backlight not working.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hai guys! Time for some total nubness... wth is going on with my brand new shiney razerBlackwidow 2013 mechanical keyboard? The back light does not work. From what i understand you only have to FN+f12 to turn it on/up, but this is simply not working...

Tried:

USB
USB 3.0
plugging in EVERY port.
ONLY plugging in keyboard...
Synapse 2.0


Seems to me this keyboard is defective, any way to 100% tell before i return it and order a slightly higher quality one online?

Razer Deathadder keyboard? Do you mean Razer Deathstalker or Black Widow? Or did you mean the Razer Deathadder mouse?

Sounds like you have the Blackwidow and he has the Blackwidow Ultimate. the standard Blackwidow doesn't have LEDs, only the Ultimate.

guess the ultimate is the "essential" model name. I also guess I (and or the store) failed. I just grabbed two from the same stack assuming they were the same, Just as they are the same price on the receipt.


Also, while most of it is pretty clean and quality feeling. The Right shift key and the spacebar are terrible, both stick often. Also, the keyboard scrolls (spacebar) when waking up from sleep states... Think i'm going to return it and try something with a little more weight to the keys, and hope the scrolling issue isn't the switch, just good ol' quality razer product.
