Razer Ornata v3 Ghosting


Userlevel 1
Hello,

I just bought an Razer Ornata V3 and I have a big Problem.
If i hold down the W and A (or W and D) keys simultaneously and click E - the E-Click will not be recognized?

Is that normal or do I miss something?

-Sorry for my bad english

It's a firmware problem, I'm still waiting on Razer to roll out an update to fix the ghosting and the NKRO not being at 6 but stuck at 3, depending what time frame in production, earlier ones have ghosting and newer batches have NKRO at 3 keys (W+Q+E will activate C key while I'm not even pressing C physically) I'm on my 3rd ornata v3 sadly,

How are you sure it's a firmware problem? and I loved the keyboard, but the NKRO ruined it for me, do you think they will fix the problem in the future?

I had just accepted that the keyboard would only have 3 NKRO since their website doesn't claim it has NKRO.
Any updates on this? :(
I have bought my Ornata v3 today and I'm experiencing the same problems... it's really annoying.
Hello guys. I bought Ornata v3 X today and have the same problem. Did someone already receive any kind of feedback from Razer support ?

TAB-W-R - not working
A-W-E - not working

please check with your keyboards.
I have the same issue. I bought Ornata V3 10 days ago, and some key combinations are not working.
( A-W-E or Shift-W-Q )
Is it something that can be fixed or should i try to return the keyboard? Its really annoying. Anyone has found any solution to this problem? Razer support is not very helpful.
At my Ornata V3 when holding W+any other key, q doesn't work and the other way around when pressing Q+ any other key W doesn't work. I did some truobleshooting with the support and eventually got a new one which warrived today. Still the same issue - i hope they find a solution soon
Hello, a same problem...
same issue space + w = cannot click q or t,
space + t disables alot of other keys
r + t = 4, 5, f4, f5, f, g ...etc
I hope there is a fix for this soon, especially the q issue is very annoying in games when I'm trying to use skill q while running and jumping 😣
I can't click SHIFT+W+Q too.
Is this a harware or software problem?

I just got a replacement and its working fine. So it seems some of the ornata v3 are faulty, try asking for a replacement if you have the same issues with me.
Hi @AlexTheSly !
Could you write here your new keyboard production date?

Bought the keyboard literally a couple of days ago. Noticed the problem and tested key registering. At the moment found a couple of non-working combinations:

A+W+E, D+W+Q, W+E+D, Q+W+any key in the top row, A+D+any key in the middle row(except S). Yeah, the keyboard really registers up to 6 simultaneous pressed key, but those keys must be really different from each other.

I would be really grateful for a solution, ‘cause i’s kinda really annoying in games to stop strafing for pressing Q or E.

This keyboard is absolutly “TRASH” antighosting on 3 key… Good job razer you did worst and worst every year…
Even my Asus PS2 keyboard work better than you piece of plastic…

i will never buy another razer product...

So that’s it? This keyboard is just bad and it won’t be changed? Man, I bought one three weeks ago and I felt something was wrong but I couldn’t tell. Such a disappointment.

RMA’d mine as well, just can’t fathom how lazy I was doing research on this or that no review mentioned it. Well… mine will and it won’t be positive...

Hi! I just purchased the Ornata V3 X low-profile keyboard, and right out of the box, I have an issue with my Caps Lock key, very similar issue to these mentioned. Combination Caps Lock + WASD. If I single-press the Caps Lock key, caps lock turns on and off, as it should. If I press and hold the Caps Lock key in games where Caps Lock is my sprinting key, then I am unable to strafe left and right, only while I am holding down the Caps Lock key. When I long-press (hold down) the Caps Lock key, none of my other keyboard keys work. 
I tried this keyboard on two different laptops where holding caps lock and sprinting is not an issue, but it still persists on the Ornata V3 X keyboard. I uninstalled the Razer Synapse softwares and the issue still persists. I tried it on every available USB-A port on two different PCs, including a USB-C adapter, and the issue still persists. The keyboard is only 3 days old, and I have only used it very briefly before discovering this issue. There are no physical defects, no dirt or grime, no liquid spills, and nothing is obstructing the keys. I updated ALL BIOS, firmware, softwares, and drivers on my PCs as well as installed the latest Windows updates. All keyboard and mouse drivers have been uninstalled and re-installed. I tested again on two different PCs with this keyboard, tested with three different games, and this issue still persists with this Caps Lock key not working with other keys. There are no macro changes to the Caps Lock key. 
As a further test, when all else failed to correct the issue, I swapped my Caps Lock key with my Scroll Lock key. The issue stays with the physical Caps Lock key. It does not swap with the macro key swap. Also, in my games settings, if I change my keybinding so that sprint is Left Shift, instead of Caps Lock, I can use Left Shift to sprint and I am able to strafe side to side and jump (space bar) fine. 
The Caps Lock key works fine if it just press it to turn Caps on and off, but not if I hold it while using other keys. So the issue is most likely with the encoding software for the keyboard/firmware, specifically for the function of the Caps Lock key. It’s ‘possible’ the issue is related to compatibility with the USB drivers on the PC, because there are a lot of people posting issues with intermittent function and use, and having to factory reset these keyboards for spamming, not working, etc. 

 

Your best bet is to see if it is under warranty to have it replaced or take it back to the store you purchased it from if you are still within the store’s return policy, with receipt.

 

I hope this helps others. I contacted Razer Support, I am returning the keyboard to the store, because it is under warranty. I just hope it doesn’t hop right back on the shelf for someone else to have to deal with.

is it something to fix with a update or is it a hardware problem?

Known issue return it

 

Is the ghosting issues with the ORnata v3 still ongoing, or are newer models better, or have the fixed it using firmware updates?

I have a few of these Ornata keyboards and I had to stick a few back in the box because I was sick of fighting with them. Nice to know Razer doesn’t seem to care about their customers. I’m done waiting for firmware on keyboards I’ve had for years.

I like to be brand loyal but I’ll buy their competitor from now on. No company is worth this frustration! - Especially for the $$$ paid for products that barely work.
