Filco Double Registering Keypresses

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
So I bought a Filco Majestouch Tactile Click from elitekeyboards earlier and had it work splendidly for me for the first couple of months however now for some reasonn I am experiencing my filco readinng 2 keypresses from one press which results in the double n's that appear in my posts and I want to know what may be the problem, it has happened with many keys inncluding the spacebar and is not limited the only 2 keypresses but multiple ones as well and I donn't believe that it is simply because of the way I type.

It very well could be the way you're typing. I had the exact same thing happen to me with my Tactile Click, and I fixed it by raising my wrists in the air and then using a lighter touch. You see, what could be happening is you might just be using too much force and possibly not releasing the key all the way thereby ending up with repeated keystrokes even though you only pressed it down once. I once called this "the lead finger syndrome".

This also sometimes happens to me when I'm really tired and as sleepy as can possibly be because I'm not just giving each key a light tap, but instead I can tend to press and hold it for a short time. It doesn't take much.

It is mostly caused by the fact that the reset point is higher up in the key travel than the actuation point. So the only way for a keystroke signal to be severed is to completely let go of a key right away.

It's not a concern. Your name is "Lanx" while his is "ianx", which begins with a lower case 'i'. To me, these two names are as different as night and day.

Compare:
  • Lanx
  • ianx

Or:
  • ianx
  • Lanx

Sometimes you get dud Cherry switches with chattering issues. It would be rather uncommon to get a load of dud switches on the one board. Email the vendor either way just in case.

If you're using it via usb, there may be something wrong with your connection, or problem with the hub you're using.

Check key repeat rate or delay in keyboard settings.

This and what TwoCables said.

I had this issue with my cherry black switches every once and a while. Since the actuation point is half-way down the keystroke, the time while actuated is greater than it is using a rubber dome. I adjusted the repeat rate and don't have the problem anymore.

As for why it is happening now, but not for the first few months...not sure.

Someone had a problem once with a game which had silently changed these settings. He thought he had merely set his gunfire repeat rate inside the game settings or something. This might not be the case here, but it's worth to mention as a possibility if you ever encounter it.

Checking this setting is also a fix for some old keyboards which have their own logic for key repeat, which you can control from the keyboard but sometimes isn't working anymore.

Usually this is just a hardware failure of the switch though, or, if you're lucky, dirt.
