Gmmk tkl stab issue
« on: Thu, 03 June 2021, 00:43:38 »
Iím back here once again to ask for help. I assembled my gmmk tkl today but found out that the long keys (ones with stabilizers) arenít working properly especially the left shift. The left shift is hard to press and I canít press it all the way down otherwise itís gonna get stuck there and wonít go back unless I manually pull it. The issue is when I press it, it doesnít go back up as fast as it should, making my next key a capital as well. It also doesnít look aligned to the other keys no matter what I do. I use XDA profile. The other keys with stabs arenít as bad as the left shift key but they also donít feel right. I really donít know how to describe or explain the issue. :(

I donít know if this problem is covered by warranty or I have to do something to the stabs like lubing it. Iím also afraid that lubing wonít fix it and will end up voiding the warranty as well. Thank you so much in advance. :)

Any chance you put in the stabs the wrong direction or assembled them wrong?

If these are costar stabilizers make sure the inserts in the caps are matched & right direction.

Is it possible the long keycaps are warped or their posts not properly aligned?  Do keycaps from other sets work on the board, or do these keycaps work on other boards?

These are stock stabs of gmmk tkl and I havenít touched anything inside the board. All I did was put switches and keycaps.

As for the keycaps, I tested them on rk61. It works just fine. I also tried using my rk61 stock keycap for this gmmk tkl left shift and the result is worse. There really must be something wrong with the stabilizer.
