daskeyboard double-type some keys
« on: Fri, 02 April 2021, 20:44:46 »
I have a daskeyboard DASK4CPROSIL-3G7-r1.0 . I've had this for several years, and have used it for work most of this time. Last year I started having problems where the Z key would occasionally double type. This got progressively worse, and then started happening to other keys, notably the 6 key.

I have just taken the entire keyboard apart, and cleaned it thoroughly. I have never spilled anything on it, but as you can imagine it was dirty. Unfortunately, the keys are still typing double.

I am quite disappointed as this is my first mechanical keyboard, and my most expensive keyboard, and I have never had a keyboard fail before. I still have my Happy Hacking keyboard, and although it doesn't feel nearly as nice, at least it works reliably.

I hope someone can assist me in solving this problem, as I would prefer to type on a mechanical keyboard, but I can't justify buying another one.

After taking it apart, I see that it is using Greetech brown switches, if that is important.

Thanks.

take the cap off, push the stem in, and hit the hole with compressed air at different angles.

If that doesn't help, buy new switches, and solder them in.
