    So the lighting settings on my Cynosa Chroma keyboard seem to be stuck in the Spectrum Cycling mode and won't come out of it no matter what option I select under Quick Effects (Fire, Static, Breathing etc.). However I'm still able to adjust the brightness on the lights via Synapse so I know that the app isn't completely unresponsive/disconnected somehow.

    But I'm not able to get the lighting settings to work. It used to work when I first installed my KB and accompanying Razer software a couple months ago. This is a problem I've been having only since the last couple weeks.

    I've tried uninstalling & reinstalling Synapse and restart system but it doesn't help. Anyone having this problem and if so, did you fix it and how?

    Never mind, the problem was that MSI_LED (came with my new GTX 1080Ti) was enabled in my Chroma apps tab and it was somehow controlling my KB. Disabling that app in Chroma solved the problem and now I'm able to control my KB lighting again, cheers!

    Cheers! Good to know you were able to troubleshoot this yourself.

    To others reading : We're already in touch with MSI about this, and we're expecting their app to be updated sometime this year to stop taking control of Chroma devices.

    Thanks! This did it for me and was driving me nuts. I had previously written a script that ran on startup to kill all Razer services and processes and restart them in, but this was the actual fix.

    For those that stumble on this, the app is called "LEDKeeper.exe" and needs to be disabled in Chroma Apps for those that have MSI keyboards/GPUs.
