My ALT is functioning fine; however one of the LEDs is not showing the right colors. Anyone here knows the spec of the LEDs being used on the board so that I may look into replacing the faulty one on the board?

Sharing my experience in case it helps others with a similar problem. I've had my ALT for a few days now. At first it worked fine, then the "i" key started working intermittently, then finally it stopped working at all. I swapped the "i" switch and the "z" switch, but the "i" key still didn't work and the "z" key worked fine. I read in the discussions here about problems with the PCB, so I took off the back and noticed that the PCB connector for the "i" switch was hanging loose (see picture). I touched it up with a soldering iron, and now it is working again.

How do I save my ALT keyboard configuration so that it remains when I power off and power back on my pc? Each time it resets to factory and I have to configure manually. I want to save it as all white led with reduced brightness (see pic below). I have not been able to figure out how to save this state. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Setting the default to white is not a problem you can do it in drops configurator: https://drop.com/mechanical-keyboards/configurator the brightness thing seems to be a little more work. I didnt try it but supposedly you can do it if you edit the source code but you can't do it in the GUI ...in here is a little bit of explaining for that and for lighting in general: https://github.com/LastContinue/ctrl-info/wiki/FAQ-Lights

Is there a way to buy a replacement keycap? I was cleaning my keyboard, a few fell to the floor and I rolled over them with my chair by accident. I need a "5" cap and a quotation marks cap, thank you in advance

Hey there, Does anyone know where I can get 1 replacement foot for the Drop Alt? Was advised they do not make these and to reach out here. Thank you in advance.

Has anyone been able to add more lighting effects to the Drop ALT or SHIFT? I haven't been able to find any firmware with a "Starlight" or "Rainbow Ripple" effect. I'd really like to have both running simultaneously. My Cooler Master RGB keyboards and Razer keyboards can do that (run both effects simultaneously). Short clips of my Vortex Pok3r running the "Starlight" effect and my Cooler Master SK630 running BOTH "Starlight" and "Rainbow Ripple" simultaneously.

I just received my new ALT keyboard and I cannot get it to work on my computer. I tried plugging it into multiple USB 3.0 slots and nothing happens. It will work on my wife's computer's USB 2.0 slots though. I tried plugging in directly into my computers only 2.0 slots on the drivers and nothing happens. I tried using a ONN powered USB adapter too to help increase the power and still nothing.

What are the differences, if any, between the MASSDROP ALT and the Drop ALT?
Might be, but it might just be that a higer volume of drop alts was sold and relatively the failure rate is still the same. But i really dont know

Yeah - they screwed up the power structure on the boards. What that means is that at some point (unless they fixed it on more current batches) the board will overheat or glitch out or something, and the USB port will temporarily go down and your PC will alert you that the hardware just failed. There's a workaround, but it's not a great one - all you need to do is reduce the brightness of the keyboard by 30% (or thereabouts) and the board will stay active indefinitely. I don't know who figured that out, but thankfully someone did. :)
