I have  month old Blackwidow v4 75%, and a handful off keys have started double typing. This is not an uncommon issue, and I see regular posts about it here.

Currently it is my F/L/E keys, mostly. Sometimes other keys have it happen.

I have tested with Synapse disabled, and I have cleaned out beneath the cap - I have NOT removed the switch itself and cleaned under that.

Usually this seems to be a Firmware fix, but there is now firmware available for this keyboard (yet).

I also tried a different USB port

I’m exxpperiencing the same issue with mine, as you can see it happppens with several different keys throughout the main keyboard area as well as with the numpad. Very annoying for someone that does a lot of writing and chat based things. Can’t seem to ffind a fix for this anywhere, other than people saying the switches are what’s bad. 

Having the exact same issue as well. The keyboard is almost unusable due to this, and I am already looking into RMA.

Mine doing the same thing… and somme keys doesn’t work..

I ended up returning mine, the issue just got worse and worse which made working impossible.

I have the same issue with mine after 20 days- a month of using. It’s really frustrating. Seems they didn’t do good job with hot swappable switches… It’s almost impossible to work. I have like 10 keys that are double typing...

on my 2nd black widow 75% and they both have the same double typing issue. It’s insane that razer doesn’t do anything about this. 

also experiencing this issue and im not sure if there’s an actual fix..

I order new Akko switches, to try to replace those, so let’s see. It’s even worst after some time. Now I have like 15-20 keys with double typing. (I wrote this 1 minute because of that :)

So how did it go ? can you update here with your findings ? 

Sure. They arrived today. ;) Will update you shortly.

@TapsGG I just replace them. They feel amazing and sound amazing, better than Razer’s Orange.
Only thing it that since they are purple and dark, keyboard isn’t that bright as it was. :( It’s a bit dimmed. :) 

For example numbers, F’s and Z,X  and M are not changed (My switch puller broke down :D ) But sound + feel is much better, and I do not see and double typing so far. :) 

 

If you replace them all atleast it will all have the same brightness. I have red in reddit someone swapped with gateron pros and the issue was gone. So as it seems the switches are to blame.

@TapsGG It’s 100% switches. Brightness is really annoying, but typing experience is on the next level.


 :)

Same issue, still no firmware update D:

Same issue here. I work remote and I do a lot of ssh and rdp.. with added lag from remote sessions I can barely use this keyboard. Please push an update. I’ve already had to default to my old keyboard. 

Same issue here, some keys are double typing, some doesn’t work. It doesn’t work intermediately. Maybe security issue or something like that?

Switches guys, switches. I bought new Akko switches, not a single double type after that.

I ordered Akko V3 Silver Pro Switches. I'll let you know if it also fixes my problem.

I bought a Razer Blackwidow V4 75% as well and after about a week of using it, multiple keys started double clicking. I thought I was unlucky and received a faulty one. Thankfully I bought it through amazon so I returned it and asked for a replacement. The new one lasted much longer but eventually started double clicking too, I did a little research and came across this thread.

I’m gonna try to replace the switches too and see how it goes, I bought Gateron BBK Baby Kangaroo Tactile Pre-Lubed Switches. Hopefully this will fix it. I am in love with the keyboard but damn, it’s such a let down that we have to go through this while the keyboard costs 200 euros / pounds / dollars.

hey there, got the same problem, 4 month using it

Is it really helps to change switches and dont even bother trying to contact support and get a new one?

Im wondering to get something like penguins akko)

Razer do something FFS!!!

Grettings,

I came back to a razer product after 15 years and it is same sh** as it was.

My friend bought this keyboard a few months ago and hyped me up to buy it too (I bought it like 14 days later). We both really like the design and the sound of it. He started to have trouble with double clicking on some of the keys so he tried all the things that he found on the internet to fix it. Ofc nothing helped and he bought new Ranked Gateron ks-9 G PRO and the double clicking disappeared. 

Guess what 14 days later my keyboard started double clicking too. I tried everything I found on the internet and in the end I bought Gateron milky yellow pro switches and double clicking disappeared.

Fast forward to this day (keyboards are around 4 months old) my friend experienced double clicking again on Ranked Gateron ks-9 G PRO switches. 

He than changed the switches with another spare ones ( Gateron ks-9 G PRO).

Keyboard is around 200€. Razer you can't fu*k with your customers like that!

I will update this post as soon as we get another problem.

WE NEED A SOLUTION FOR THIS NOW!!!

Razer you need to do something FFS!!!

Received the switches yesterday.
Problem resolved !

I purchased: Gateron G Red Pro 3.0 Pre-lubed Switches 5pin Linear for MX Mechanical Type Key Gaming Keyboard Switches, SMD RGB Light Plate Mounted Switches  https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0CKTG1X2Y?ref=ppx_pt2_dt_b_prod_image&th=1 

 

So far so good with no more issues around double spacing, button misses etc. Seems to have fixed the issue and assuming razer is shipping all these with faulty switches as i’ve gone thru a couple of 75% black widows and they all have the same issue.

Yikes. Kinda sucks how a big selling point (hot-swap) is turning into an obligation what with the switches breaking down that soon though… 😖

If only we could get these as barebones... 🤠
