P775TM1-G keyboard backlight issue

Hello everyone!

 

Ever since I bought my Clevo 1 year ago I immediately noticed how the Blue lights for whatever reason is much much more dim than Red and Green.

 

Anyone seen something like this? Maybe somebody knows which way I should look for a fix... It's to the point where I would call it non existent. Even in night you can ever so slightly see it. And of course I am now limited in colors because a lot of them don't mix properly anymore in the absence of Blue.

 

Not sure where to start looking for the problem. Also it is not a keyboard issue as I already once had to go through keyboard replacement and as a matter of fact broke the 2nd one aswell... -_- Something with the D key might be wrong with the keyboard batches because while just playing Rocket League most of the time I somehow managed to break D key on both of them in the exact same way, it would slowly start no not register my presses until dying out completely.. Anyways, went off topic a bit.

 

Thanks,

Edgars

hey man, thats actually a known issue. may i know how old the machine is?

 

problem is that the blue LEDs get weaker and weaker with time as opposed to the red and green ones. unfortunately there is no fix aside from a brand new replacement keyboard 😅

Interesting... That means both keyboards I had was with the Blue LED weared out.

 

Technically possible because neither was brand new.

 

Good to know! If possible (big doubt) I will try to source a brand new one!

 

As always thanks for the reply🙂✌️

you got it bud, happy to help. keep us in the loop on how it goes with the keyboard hunting 🙂 

 

btw, i had the exact same issue, blue LEDs started out quite bright and then got weaker every year....before the keyboard lighting completely gave out on me (LED cable broke 😞)

You were right!

 

I had to wait a long time to finally hunt down a keyboard for a reasonable price. They are literally unavailable unless you buy from aliexpress for a hefty 100GBP price. I was able to hunt down a spares/repairs listing for P751 and even though it was not for parts I wrote a message offering 75 for the keyboard alone and he accepted.

 

Anyways, you were right about the LED wear overtime. I got lucky on this one and for the first time I finally see the full spectrum of colors from my keyboard! 😃

 

Now just have to stop playing Rocket League on my main keyboard because I am scared of them failing now. This is my 3rd keyboard for my P775 over 1year of usage... =D yikes

 

And oddly enough both of them failed in exact same fashion. D key stopped registering strokes slowly until completely dying out for one and the other just sometimes worked but most of the time didn't. I think it has something to do with a lot of key strokes during Rocket League =D

 

Also funny how I upgrade this machine and try to push it to the limits and end up spending most of my time playing Rocket League xD

lulz i know the feeling man, the upgrading / tinkering is sometimes the main part of the fun. the actual utilization is then underwhelming. i mean im currently running my 4090 at a measly 100-150W TDP while replaying the Wolfenstein series, thats all it takes for the games to be maxxed out at 4K LOL

but nevertheless im having sooooo much fun, omg. loving Hyperion 😍
