    Hello guys, I had 2 Razer keyboards till now, my first one was a Blackwidow Chroma Tournament Edition and now I own a Blackwidow X Chroma. Both keyboards seem to have 1 key that feels sticky, gluey, it puts much more resistance than other keys if you press that respective key from the top right corner of the keycap. On the first keyboard I had it was the "X" key\keycap that was harder to press and on the keyboard I own now it is the "A" key\keycap. I tried using rubbing alcohol + Q-tip but it didn't help. I want to mention that i never spilt any type of liquid or food on both keyboards.

    Any ideas?

    Forgot to mention that both keyboards had clicky switches.

    This also happened to me but man I was going crazy about it. Soon after, I realised that is just a feeling of mine...

    I wish it was just a feeling of mine but this shit is real and its rly annoying in the game I play ( osu! ), it requires fast presses on 2 keys and I feel the key like sinking in gue and becomes harder and harder to press when trying to tap it fast.

    I tried using compressed air multiple times but no luck at all, also that guy's key was literally stuck, mine is not that bad. I always use compressed air to clean my keyboard from hair and other dust that gets under the keys.

    Hey! I sent you a PM so I can help you out with your keyboard @Jakuten_

    Just a heads up, I'll be moving this to the support board.

    Just an update:


    I fixed it by pressing 2 Q-tips on top and bottom of the switch and pouring a bit of medicinal spirit on the Q-tips so that it doesn't get too much liquid in the switch, release the Q-tips, blow some air with an air duster in there, then press the key 30 times and repeat the process like 4 times till it felt better. I've tried this before but not THAT insistently repeating it 4 times each time with 30 key presses(yeah, I actually counted them).
    By the way the process was with the keyboard unplugged from the USB port, I was scared of the RGB Led dieing from the liquid.
