i will be honest it is a strange feeling. i had to map my keyboard to another key. You is shocking how much you use your keyboard

i was going to write my topic like this, but i felt that would be messed up.

It must've spaced out. Tap it gently a few times, let it know that you still have control.

i agree with zedsamcatgaa

i can comfortably hit escape without leaving home row (asdfghjkl;)

typing using escape would still be a pain as you would have to change the way you type.

Well, that's the extent of my caveman troubleshooting.

If you are confident with disassembling your keyboard you could check the contacts on the switch to see if they've went bad. Other than that, it could be the internals of the switch itself. Do you have mechanical or membrane/dome switches?

Well if he was considering getting a new keyboard and his current one is not under warranty/he doesn't plant to keep it there is nothing to lose. I'd say give it a shot fixing the switch.

I'm pretty sure even if it is under warranty you can open it up to see what's wrong. At least, in the US I'm pretty sure there are laws in place to allow for repairing your own devices.

Ha ha you are so right. I had one go bad years ago I ended up breaking it in half just to see what was in there, and so nobody would use it again. Then thought hey I have 6(?) years on it why am I complaining? After that I kept old keyboards or bought on sales so I have spares. That said I usually get more years than that.

Ah. Is it under warranty?

I guessed Macbook because their new butterfly switches are garbage and fail pretty frequently.

Well, it did not make it, i tried a few fixes, but no go. Rest in peace G910 keyboard. I have to use a cheap keyboard until i can get a new one.
