So, the LEDs on half the board suddenly stopped working, but the first one that is "off" still faintly glows blue. Anyone have any ideas why and how to fix this?

So this may or may not be a dumb question, but as I've seen some sexy low profile hot swap keebs around. I personally haven't ever used them or own any. With that said, does the supplied PCB only support low profile switches or could I theoretically plug in a Kaihl or Cherry MX Brown/Silver /etc plate mount switch in there? (And of course for using non low profile keycaps).

That make since....I figured that's the case. I'm still confused about the whole power outlet looking switches as far as keycaps to use, since Cherry mx has low profile switches and cooler master has some incredible looking concave low profile keycaps but they are the same as regular mx keycaps just slim. So someone else needs to buy one and lemme know if this PCB takes these choc switches and cherry mx low profile switches and then I will be out of a cool macro pad...but I will have all the knowledge I need for the NEXT High profile case with low profile switches and keycaps. (Think of the CNTRL and ALT high profile....but with low profile keycaps and switches.)

Yeah the community here's pretty great, (but I'm not that nice, lol I was going to get one anyways) I'm hoping it will improve my 3D modeling workflow. I couldn't tell you which keycaps will fit on it, but I imagine they're all different, I don't think there's a "low profile" keycap standard really. but I looked it up, and if you're talking about the SK630, then it's this keyswitch which looks like the mx standard...

Yeah, can confirm pin position is different on choc switches. Regular switches won't work on this specific PCB - However I think the same company also offers other PCBs that will work with other switches.

What kind of tool do I use to tighten the microscopic screws that come with this?

They're a pretty regular size for this type of device. A TORX T5 screwdriver should work perfectly, but any other small screwdriver (like a + # 1 X 40mm for instance) should also work. You don't need something super specific to make it work. Just get a small cross screwdriver and you should be fine.

I'm able to use this device by plug and play means, but I'm having an issue when trying to put this device in DFU mode. I've tried using the RESET macro and shorting the board, both produce the same result. Windows 10 recognizes that something changed and I end up with an unknown "ATm32U4DFU" device in Device Manager. If I unplug and plug, the device returns to normal. However, QMK Toolbox never detects the device throughout all of this. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Sorry for my late reply. I'm also looking for a tool for setting the lighting of each key individually, but not find yet. By the way, I found the manual for BM-16s. Access here, download the files and extract them (source).

@equuleus I'm able to accomplish assigning individual LED colors by writing my own keymap.c file. I don't think there's an easier way to do it for now.
