Problem with LED in new Massdrop CTRL

more_vert
So I just received a new massdrop ctrl from Amazon today and I’m having an issue with it. One of the LEDs in the case seems to display the wrong color. It will change colors, but it’s not the same as the others around it. Not sure what’s up with that. I used the massdrop keyboard configurator to flash a uniform color pattern and that didn’t correct the issue. Any thoughts on this before I pack it up and send it back? FWIW – This keyboard has the reset button on the back so I think that means it’s a first run board – old stock maybe? I absolutely love the boxwhites – the spacebar sounds a little tinny, but the other keys are a joy to type on. Any input you have would be greatly appreciated.

I have a similar issue. Some of the keys display wrong color. For example, say when I switch to led pattern where ALL LEDs are blue, some LEDs will be yellow. When I change to a different pattern, say ALL RED, ALL LEDs do turn red. So these few LEDs showing wrong color happens for only certain color patterns. I am going to try re-flash the latest firmware. Hopefully that solves the issue.

I flashed the latest firmware on my DROP Ctrl keyboard. I still have a few LEDs showing wrong color (see the attached images). To clarify, in the first image all LEDs should be white but there are some which are blue. In the second image, all LEDs should be red but there are some pink. Similarly, in the third image, all should be green but some are blue and last image all should be yellow but some are purple. Is it possible to replace the LEDs with new ones?

Hey there...is your led a yellow tint? I have the same issue but on my B LED and its yellow compared to the others around it.
Reflashing was the only solution I could think of. Maybe reach out to support and see what they can do if you're super bothered by it
