  • Hi Keljian I'm new here, not sure where to post, so I'll do it here. I'm restoring a Blackwidow Elite that I bought second-hand, and came across your thread. While desoldering, I ripped off one of the contact pads and broke a diode(?) (text says "D31"). Now, ".", "i", "o", and "L" key aren't working. Do you know what kind of diode I'm should replace it with, or perhaps another solution? Would love to hear from you.

    Thank you! I have the same problem with my "i" and "L" key however. Where exactly would I have to solder a diode to for those keys? (not entirely sure if "i" is broken or bad solder job) Also, I broke one of the pads from my numpad ".", any idea if i can bridge that too?

    You need a multimeter to work out which pads are connected to the broken diode pads, then solder a diode between (noting that diodes are polarised - the direction of them matters) the point I indicated in the above photo and that point.
    Regarding the hole/pad that got killed, you can just scratch away a bit of the silk screen with a hobby knife and solder a wire.

    I'll get to it, thanks for your help!
