Broken Razer Blackwidow Chroma V2

I bought a used Blackwidow Chroma v2, like 3 months ago from a guy i found here, i wont name the person because he was very nice to me, and this issue is not caused by him in any way. the keyboard worked completely fine other than a LED light [M3 Button] failing to produce dark colors which I was okay with, and the seller already had informed me about it.

And he also told me about the main wire of the keyboard allegedly got chewed by something in his house. (Sums up Pakistani PC Gamers lol) Anyways. so he had to get that repaired. so the USB connector on the keyboard was some cheap USB alternative. it still powers the keyboard up, it gets registered in synapse 3 and all.

So that was the backstory. now the issue I am facing right now.

I remember playing SWTOR the other night and I remember closing my system so that I can go to sleep. Then I wake up the next day I start playing the game and I suddenly notice that some of the lights in my Numpad are blinking after some time for a split second. I kinda ignored it and then it got a little worse and more noticing.

I ignored thinking its just my eye doing crazy stuff.

Then I noticed that my keyboard just froze, and ghosted on me. luckily I had a chroma profile with reactive enabled. and I saw that some of the Numpad keys are automatically being pressed. even though I'm not touching them.

The red keys were being pressed automatically, (the greens are just the replacement for arrow keys) they aren't macros if you are thinking that I've got some macros resulting in that.



r/razer - Blackwidow Chroma V2 Automatically starts pressing buttons and freezes. [Suggestions needed]
TLDR
  • Tried removing the keyboard and reinserting. (didn't work, the keys just work for 5-10 second before freezing again)
  • Tried using the keyboard in another PC (didn't work)
  • Tried removing synapse (didn't work)
  • Tried removing drivers (didn't work)
  • Tried removing EVERY Razer driver (didn't work)
  • Tried Reseting the keyboard by Synapse (didn't work)
  • Tried Reseting from ESC + Caps (didn't work)
  • Tried updating the firmware, (didn't work)
  • Tried removing any macros, I had none set up.
  • Tried deleting the keyboard from device manager, (didn't work)
  • Tried disabling the specific keys in the synapse, (didn't work), they don't register in windows, but due to them being pressed they still ghost my keyboard.
  • Tried cleaning the keyboard (because I'm out of warranty) by opening and checking to see if any pins are in contact at the PCB level, everything looked fine. there aren't any wires that are broken too. (didn't work)
What I haven't tried.
  • Haven't tried in Safemode though but I highly doubt it'll work.
  • Haven't tried in Bios because I don't wanna mess up any values there.
  • Haven't tried resetting my windows but again I literally removed all signs of this keyboard ever being in this windows and that didn't do anything, so I highly doubt reinstalling windows will fix anything.
  • getting it checked by someone who knows how to repair keyboards,


The thing that puts me off is that the keys work for 10 seconds when I reset the keyboard or remove and re-insert the keyboard. and then they go crazy again.

    but it also feels way too fragile, and the earpads are not soft enough. Gonna look into replacing them for better comfort.

    One more thing. If your ps+ subscription expires, can you still play the games if you renew it later? GIven that you haven't deleted them from storage
    if its the same as the regular PS+ or Gold model, the games are tied to your profile but you can't activate them if you don't have an active subscription so it should work whenever you renew

    but i dont see why it would matter when you get PS+, it seems like something tied to the PS+ service, not to when or how long you have been a member.

    Can someone confirm whether I'll be able to get the PS+ Collection games (the 18 PS4 games) on PS5 if I get a new subscription after launch or do I have to be a subscriber before launch to be eligible?
    i dont think there is enough information for anyone to say one way or the other.
