    Have just got a second hand Razer Blackwidow keyboard RZ03-0286
    It has a broken right arrow key, can this be replaced.

    I have tried disabling the Razer software but problem still continues
    Can i buy replacement switches and re-solder them?

    Yes, you can buy a replacement and resolder it.
    If you've disabled the key in Synapse it should not work in OS.

    For anyone that cares at all or might have a similar issue..
    I have solved my problem by using a jumper wire from the left arrow key see attached image

    Need a screenshot of the error. Are you trying to connect it via some hub? Or directly to motherboard USB port?
    Also plase don't reply in a topic, that is not connected to your problem.

    if u don't want to solder anything, i'd just use the numpad arrow keys
    or remap prtscrn ins home and pgup as arrow keys
