Recent firmware binaries downloaded from the configurator seem to be really buggy. Modifier keys will get stuck, or simply stop working, keys will get stuck repeating while the rest of the keyboard fails to send key-presses, individual LEDs will stop working, etc. Most of these issues can be addressed by disconnecting and reconnecting the keyboard. However, that is only a temporary fix; the issues always return. Has there been a change to the firmware generated by the configurator in the last few months that may have caused this?gbarnParticipantDecember 19, 2016 at 12:48Post count: 5
I am getting a similar result with fast typing it either locks up and I have to unplug and replug to clear or I get an infinite repeating key. All keys worrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
The above happened as I typed this. Got it on last Massdrop, in service only a month, I recently updated the key mapping via the online configurator. Help, it is somewhat unusable. It is getting worse the more I get use to it and the faster I type.Jeremy BondesonModeratorDecember 19, 2016 at 13:14Post count: 38
Try to go to the alpha version of the configurator and import your previous .json file (should be in the zip you downloaded), then in the “kll defines” section add an entry for “MinDebouceTime” and set the value above 5 (maybe start at 7 and see if you need to go up/down from there). That configures the debounce settings for the keyboard. They are normally set at Cherry’s standard of 5ms, but you may be running into an issue with your switches.
Could you also both just let me know which switches you have installed?gbarnParticipantDecember 19, 2016 at 20:30Post count: 5
Ok, I did as instructed and am typing on it with this reply. I have the MinDedbouceTime set to 7 as suggested. I will give it a try and see if the issue goes away. I’ll report back in a few days. Thanks for the quick reply to the issue.
Oh, I installed Cherry Browns for the switches.gbarnParticipantDecember 30, 2016 at 18:22Post count: 5
It seemed to be working great for a week or so and it started happening again today. Keys getting stuck on repeat. It happens when I start to type really fast. This is very worrisome as I have a lot of money invested in it.
Any other ideas or settings I should try? Is it possible that the changes I made to “fix” it have somehow been lost?gbarnParticipantDecember 30, 2016 at 18:38Post count: 5
Ok I just flashed again using a 9 for the MinDebouceTime setting. I’ll try to uy
I was typing the above message and had a typo and hit the backspace key very quickly to get rid of the y and the keyboard seemed to hang. I couldn’t get anything to type. I tried hitting the L1 and it seemed to enter that page, at least the LCD changed color but other keys didn’t work. Getting very frustrated at this point.
