[help]Where to buy Chery MX Brown Clear RGB by theeisbaer in MechanicalKeyboards

[–]shadydentist 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Test the PCB by opening up the board and shorting the contacts with a paperclip or wire. If that still activates the key, you can replace the switch. If not, there's something wrong with the PCB and you will probably need a new board.

[help] Swapping US to UK layout possible by gaybae in MechanicalKeyboards

Then yes, I think you can just swap the keycaps and change the OS settings.

Box clicky switches (white, pale blue, jade, navy) have a higher activation point than cherry mx switches.

When you say UK layout, do you mean an ISO layout (i.e. the big enter key)? If so, then no, you cannot. The switch placements are completely different. But things like different symbols in the number row will work.

Looking to get a mechanical keyboard. Trying to look for Ducky Zero but can't find where to buy it. by somebody_forgotten in MechanicalKeyboards

Ducky zeros aren't made anymore. You might be able to pick one up second hand, but they have been replaced by the ducky one 2.

Many stores sell kits. 60% kits are the easiest to find, what kind of keyboard are you looking for?

I've only tried them on a switch tester and not a real board, but the heavier spring ofnthe box navy does noticeably reduce the tactile bump.

Looks great. For the bolts, consider replacing them with female to female standoffs so you can have the screw heads on both sides.

That type of case is called a sandwich case, there are a few different places that sell them. For example, Sentraq offers a few options.

Glad it worked! I don't know if you tried it, but if you're not doing anything too complicated you can get the hex file from http://kbfirmware.com/

Here's a link to the .json file if you want to mess with it yourself. Can't wait to see the full thing in action.

On mobile so I can't look it up, but I remember someone who had this problem. The solution was to reduce the stated max current draw somewhere in your qmk options, as macs have a lower threshold.

Edit: to be clear, the keyboard isn't actually using too much power, but the amount of current draw that the firmware says it might use is greater than the os limit.

It is your computer, specifically your motherboard settings. If you go to your BIOS settings, you can enable EUP which will power off your usb ports.
