    Hi everyone

    We bought the Razer Huntsman a few weeks ago and installed Synapse 3 along with it to activate all the bells and whistles.

    Sadly the functions are very unstable. Most of the time the keyboard isn't detected by Synapse and doesn't appear - and when it occasionally does and we get to pick a lighting effect, the keyboard either ignores it or it starts up only to freeze after about 2 seconds. Switching USB port will in some cases reactivate the lighting effect and it might stay on for a while, but as soon as we change some setting in Synapse, in which I assume the software needs to communicate with the keyboard, the keyboard freezes.

    Generally, trying to reset or save a profile to memory always fails and keyboard freezes.

    We've tried different USB ports but the behaviour stays the same.

    We've un- and reinstalled Synapse but it didn't help. It stays unstable and sluggish.

    It was a gift for my son and his dad is looking more and more stupid by the day, so please help us out. :)

    Thank you!

    Thanks Javielite, but I really hope that the official Razer support are of a different opinion... ;)

    Razer? Guys?

    I'm having similar issues. It's nothing breaking, but sometimes the coloring stops working or even the volume control knobs. Just now I adjusted the volume up, but I can't take it back down. Now I"ll have to reboot, or reconnect the cables to get it back and that doesn't even always work. I can still adjust the sound via the control panel or physically on the speakers, so it's not a Windows issue.

    I've removed and updated the synapse software. I've reinstalled the keyboard. Nothing seems to fix it

    My devices are detected, though the wrist pad doesn't always get picked up. Normally just rebooted fixes my issue, at least for a little bit. It's a shame cause I love the feel of the Opto-Mechanical keys and want to get another Elite for work. Though one of the main reasons I want it is for the volume control. Not really worth 200$ if it doesn't work half the time :)

    No, but of course if you contact Razer, even though there are plenty of people here having the issue, they act as it's a probable hardware issue. which I don't think it really since other people are having the exact same issue.

    No solutions yet and still no response from Razer. I thought this was an official support forum with Razer moderators, or am I wrong?

    To give credit where credit is due - since the latest update to Synapse everything has started working, so thank you Razer.

    We haven’t changed anything in regards to configuration or ports or whatever. Hope this goes for the rest of you as well.

    I have had similar issues. However that day i removed Chroma Connect and somehow I have not had any lighting freeze. Not sure if it will come back but it had been good for a few days.

    Normally when the color freeze, I will just open up Task Manager and end all razer synapse 3 running as well as chroma related, total 6 of them and restart synapse 3. After that it would be perform as per normal.
