Make sure the ducky is set to USB 3 mode. Some of them are set to USB2 mode from the factory, making the LED's 50% dimmer than they should be. If it's the same as the shine 5, hold down right alt+space bar before plugging in the keyboard.

Also the new set of ducky keycaps let a lot less light through (the seamless keycaps that have been shipping block a lot of light).

I did try usb 3 mode and the lights were the same. I even swapped a few caps for my One blue and they had the same light value. frown.gif
post #1943 of 1968
Wait, did you just say USB3 mode is the same as USB2 mode? Or was the board already on USB3?
You can hold left alt+spacebar for USB2 mode (while inserting USB).

Sounds weird. Any chance you can take a picture with the blue light on with the keycaps on, and a second picture with the caps off ? (Just take them off a small group of the keys, like arrow keys and the cursor keys above it. I'd like to see it.

You just need a good exposure so it doesn't look overexposed.

Are any more people able to test wether Shine 6 usb 2.0/3.0 power mode makes a difference in brightness, on usb 2.0 computer systems?
So far ive seen 2 postings saying it didnt (including mine) and one that it worked.

I really want to get this:



But, not if it is dim like the Ducky 6 SE I returned.
post #1945 of 1968
I feel like we expect too much for the brightness of the LEDS. FYI USB 3 and 2 mode did nothing on my TKL one RGB and same as my friends shine 6.

ANYWAYS I HAVE A QUESTION, if anyone here remembers the DUCKY SHINE 3 TUHAOJIN Limited edition gold metal plate top casing i need your help. So half of the LEDS on this board are bonks now so I'm wondering if theres another RGB Cherry mechnical Switch keyboard with the same PCB dimensions and USB placement as that one so I can swap it over. (the Casing of this keyboard sscreams quality and I want to reuse it on another board to make it look nicer, also I will be transferring my White Doubleshot PBT keycaps onto the new board too, and yes I know doing this will void the warranty of the new keyboard I chose to make the transplant)
Your help and feedback is greatly appreciated

I'm using a USB 2.0 system right now, and my YOTG, Shine 5, Shine 6, and YOTM all are 30-40% dimmer in USB 2 mode than USB 3 mode.
The ONLY thing I can confirm is on the Shine 6, USB2 and USB3 mode are ignored when the keyboard is in "Active" LED Demo mode (where no scancodes are sent through USB, but all LED modes can be used, e.g. through a wall charger or AC Adapter). . Instead it uses a fixed mode "between" USB 2 and 3.

I can also confirm that on the YOTG and the Shine 5, USB2 and USB3 mode both worked in a **USB 1.0** motherboard (Abit BH6). I no longer have such a system to test the Shine 6.

This is impossible.
USB2 and USB3 modes have nothing to do at all with the USB protocol and is simply power draw level, and can be used even on a USB 1 ancient motherboard. This is tied to firmware, not to USB implementation.
On the Shine 5 and and YOTG, the USB 2/3 modes apply to the passive LED demo mode also, and you can also switch USB power modes without access to a computer, just by using a USB power source, like an adapter or wall charger (the passive LED mode only requires a power source to work). While the keystrokes to active passive mode and change the power mode are different and cannot be used simultaneously, you can do a blind switch of 1) Holding Left/Right alt+space bar, 2) inserting cord into a USB port with a power source. this will change the USB power mode even though the LED's will not turn on (the keyboard detects the USB power draw and will change the mode anyway), 3) remove USB cord, 4) hold down left control+left shift+caps lock for LED demo mode, 5) insert USB, then the keyboard will be in demo mode in USB2 or USB3 mode, with any powered port.

HOWEVER the Shine 6/SE and YOTM *INCORRECTLY* ship in USB2 mode by default, when the manual states that they are set to USB3 mode by default. This is a bug. Simply holding down right ALT+Space bar while inserting will reset it back to USB3 mode. Make SURE All dip switches are set to down, and that the driver is already installed for that port. The shine 6 does ignore the USB2/3 setting in "Passive active LED mode" however. Instead it uses a fixed mode "between" USB 2 and 3.

What driver needs to be installed and what is passive active led mode?
post #1949 of 1968
The basic USB driver automatically. And its "LED Demo mode" its right in the manual.
