    After the new update allowing AMAZING coloring in keyboards, I am really impressed with the software and switches, but I have keys that unfortunately stick. I'm not sure what it is but for whatever reason some keys loop until I click them again. Just wondering if anyone else had that issue? I've only noticed it on my WASD keys, but not always the same key. Not sure if it is a hardware or some glitch in software. Curious to know what other people think.

    By the way here is my chroma profile for anyone who wants. Its simple but I really liked the green, but wanted to add some of the new effects for fun. Id be interested in what people think and can add to this type of concept.

    Here is a link:

    Same Problem here.
    By the time one key is looping every game i have.
    Noticed it on WASD as well.
    Anyone an idea?

    my blackwidow non chroma has that issue too! It usually happens when i press more than two keys at the same time.

    possibility of linking an app with a game. Or check further in your configuration and see how you eliminate the issue. I too was ok with my configuration until recently there was some unintended effect which did not work.. i tried few ways how to overcome and manage to do so.

    anyway... best of luck in elimination or overcome the wsad loop.

    To share your configuration pls post it https://insider.razerzone.com/index.php?threads/blackwidow-chroma-configurator-is-out.1769/
  7. Same problem here. Chroma non-stealth. Only seems to be a problem with synapse enabled. WASD mostly but happened on other keys as well.

    Really annoying.

    What kind of other peripherals are you using?

    Are all razer keyboards like this ?, was thinking of sending mine back too. A and D got stuck on me a 2 critical points in a match yesterday. Is this a problem with mechanical switches in general or just razer ?

    I'm pretty sure software doesn't affect hardware.......

    its like the switch gets stuck in an ON position until its pressed again, its really frustrating, ive never had this with cheap keyboards :/. Is this happening to everyone ?,

    also happening to me, usually he a and d key but on rare occasions..
  13. It does when Synpase 2.0 (software) tells the keyboard (hardware) to ripple when keys are pressed. Endless examples really. If software couldn't manipulate hardware most of your devices wouldn't work.

  14. Yeah, so so far I've tried disabling all my Logitech software controlling my mouse and wireless controller. Haven't had any issues yet but too early to tell. Let me know if you are also running those in the background.

    I do have Logitech setpoint running, Il try disabling next week and see if switches still stick.

    Yeah obviously software doesnt literally affect software. what I meant by sticking was the key endlessly loops pressing that key. It would happen in WoW a lot and i would turn endlessly until I pressed the key again.
  17. I've got that problem to but not frequently, i mean it has happend to me to but not a lot of times so igues it is an software bug...

    Wow, so I just order the Chroma Stealth and now I'm reading this wondering if I should cancel my order...
  19. Haha no it is nit that it is like somehting unfixable or disturbing it's just that it might happen sometimes not often maybe not at all :)

    i wouldn't have ordered mine if i knew about this issue, its very very frustrating if you game competitively. Doesn't seem like razer have acknowledged this issue and to me seems like a mechanical problem not software but i've no way of knowing for sure
