Razer Blackwidow V3 Pro keys double typing


Userlevel 1

Hello,

Recently some keys (random) are double typing, which is very frustrating.

I already did a firmware update, reset my keyboard to the default settings, check Windows keyboard settings, cleaned the keyboard.

Nothing seems to work.

Is there any solution to fix this?

 

Thank you in advance.

Same issue for me heree. What you’re seeeing in this chat boox isn’t typoos, it’s just how my bblackwidow v3 mini hyperspeed typese if I don’t correct it. It’s incrediblly annoying. I’vee updated my firmware, did a hard reset of thee kkeyboard, and yet……...

As I said before, this is most likely a lubrication issue with the switches (if nothing else works, like updates and stuff). The only thing you can do is clean the switches, but since it is not a hot-swap you need to desolder them disassemble them, and clean them. You could try to force in some isopropyl alcohol but it is not a permanent solution, if it still has a warranty just talk to them, and they will send you another one, with the same problem…..from a good intention that they had, it turned into a recurring problem

i just got my blackwidow v3 and i noticed that the “i” key sometimes gets put in double.
i'm rather dissapointed, i wanted a good keyboard. even the old one i used from gxt that was cheap and has no ghosting, but i love the lighting that the blackwidow v3 has to offer.

Started getting this issue around 3 months ago, for some reason it happens more often on my mac than on my windows machine.

Purchased this around a year and a half ago, and it is infuriating. I’ve had Corsair as well, but that one took like 7 years of neglect before it started to cause issues, and even then it is not as bad as the BlackWidow 3. I still have warranty, but that means that I need a replacement to work with while the keyboard gets serviced (if I even get them to do it at all).

Suffice to say, I am not looking forward to more Razer products. I also had issues with some of their earbuds for a while. So far, only the Basilisk mouse I got keeps working fine.

For any whom this may help. I contacted the warranty company a week ago and sent them my keyboard with its attachments and instructions regarding the failing keys. I got a brand new replacement a few minutes ago, and I am typing with it now, zero issues. However, my warranty will expire in a few weeks, so if this one also gets the same issue I will have no choice but to somehow repair it myself or get something else.

Make sure to keep your receipt in a safe place. I lost mine, but I had a member card from the shop so I went there personally and they gave me a copy of my receipt, which was proof enough to get them to check the keyboard and replace it. Warranty is 2 years in my case, but I assume it varies by product, model, country, etc.

Hopefully this one lives a long life.

I have a Black Widow v3 Pro and I hae the issue where sometimes keys don’t register when I type them and sometimes a key will double type. This isn’t a problem all of the time and sometimes it is worse than others. I updated to the latest firmwar and and have synapse updated. I’ve tried losing synapse and the problem persists. 
Right now it’s now too bad (up until this point it’s only happened twie -- now three times -- with the “v” on have, the “e” on firmware, and the “c” on twice). I purposely didn’t fix any mistakes. Usually I’d say it is worse than this. 

This started happening about 2 months ago and I’ve just been dealing with it but it’s gotten so bad in the last few days that I started searching for solutions. I have a BW v3 Pro that was on software revision 1.00 something so updated to the current June 23rd firmware 3. something and it’s solved the problem. I suspect that they put a nearly imperceptible delay buffer in the key scan so that the double strike that happens within milliseconds is removed.

for v3 pro check latest firmware i had double typing too and i had to give up and buy another brand…. 1 year lather they come up with this update 

 

This update fixed it for my blackwidow v3 pro.

Hey ! I finally find a solution for that. This is not a software issue but a mechanical one. Just remove the keycaps (keyboard off), and put few drops of isopropylic alcohol on the switch and spam it so that the liquid penetrates well. Let it dry 30/40 min. The operation work fine for me (double e typing everytime). If this could help some and prevent them from throwing away their keyboard or worse buying a new one from razer. 

 

If razer reads this :  beautiful keyboards should’t hide a shitty conception, no need to garantee 50M hits when they barely do 10% 

 

 

 

I have the same problem! First item V is spamming and not working. The physical shop replace it. Now, letter “U” is douuble typing. Just look at that word I did not delete the extra “u” when I typed. Frustrating!!!!

I'm sorry to hear you're facing a similar issue. Were you able to find a solution for it?

This update fixed it for my BWv3Pro too! Sorry to all those who are still having issues. That sucks. I’m glad I found this thread though.

Thanks!
