unresponsive groups of keys on cmstorm quickfire rapid

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
i have a fairly old (~3 years?) cmstorm quickfire rapid, mx blue switches.

it hasn't been used for the last year or so, but before it was working perfectly. now, most of the keys work but a fair portion of them are unresponsive.

because the unresponsive ones are in groups (like a,s,d,f) i think the switches are fine so it must be some connection on the pcb. but i don't see any signs of damage on the pcb.

any idea whether it's salvageable?

Highly unlikely you have a group of switches go bad like that (unless something was spilled on it). Most likely the board, but very possibly it wont show physical signs of being broken. I personally would just disassemble and see if you can notice anything, try using KeyboardTester to test which keys exactly or possibly even re-map your keyboard using something like AutoHotKey possibly.
