Black Spots on Keyboard

Hey there !

 

Recently I got a Razer BlackWidow Chroma V3 TKL and after a single day of it being out on my desk I started noticing some weird looking black spots on the right side of my keyboard. They are both on keys and the deck itself. I can make them go away by simply rubbing at them, which I did the first time but now they reappeared. Is it possible that the direct sunlight or temps above 30+ Celsius cause some sort of troubles to the paint job? Is this a defect worthy of using the warranty to get a new board? Is it even my fault? Never before have I seen this on a device, is like it has measles or something. My old board didn't have this and as far as I know they both have keys made of same type of plastic.

 

They were not there yesterday and I only use my keyboard shortly every evening. I also didn't spray anything around my desk, neither the first time nor this time + they appeared in the same part of the board as last time.

 

Thanks for reading,

Hope u have a better day than I do XD

That is indeed kinda weird, but are you sure you didn't even cough or sneeze close to it.

Maybe you have pets. They can also leave behind some 'residu'.

 

Because i don't think it would be something that would 'emit' from the plastic.

When i ask for more specs, don't expect me to know the answer!

I have no pets and I haven t even been home till 2 hours ago. Same thing 1st time around, got it out, set it on desk and just went to sleep so I wake up next day to this.

No sneeze, no food nor drinks around, no dust-off. Nothing. The only possible explanation I see is some sort of "allergic reaction" from the keyboard, to the sun and summer temp. But that would indicate POOR painting treatment.

Should I get it replaced or just store it in a dry container away from sunlight, like food ? :)) no fluid touch it, I can assure you of that. I can wipe away, did that already but it reappeared.

 

I d prefer not to wipe it every week like a diseases resurfacing

How long does it take? And was it the exact same pattern of spots?   

 

This 100% looks like it was splashed with something. It's on both he case and keycaps so that can't be a manufacturing defect, it clearly happened after assembly.

That's the thing, it was just fine when I got it out of the box.

 

I think it took around a week to reappear. Didn t take any photos the first time but is definitely same part of the board, keys and all.

Get a piece of paper and put it over it. As a lid.

If the paper is nasty you know its not the keyboard itself (which is higly unlikely btw, why we all stress towards an outside source).
