I had mine replaced free of charge , see this thread for detailsI bought mine before anyone knew about them. Got it from Best Buy before it even hit the shelves.
Mine has serious issues with lettering rubbing off. A, E, T, N all show signs of wear. Obviously I don't game with mine, otherwise I'd have WASD worn off.
Just contacted Logitech, for those of you whom may wonder:
That page lists the contact information. If you have an old-style G-15 which wears, I would highly suggest contacting
them. In only 15 minutes, I have been helped, and my new keyboard is on the way. The information you will need is
simply the numbers that came on the back. The two etched on the board itself, and the one on the sticker, that is:
Depending on your skills it might be pretty hard as there's a flat cable just over 1/2" (~15mm) with 30+ orso contacts, if my G15 turns out to be partially bad I might give it a go.Has anyone tried removing the LCD from the keyboard to use it as a front panel LCD on a HTPC type Chassis?
I've been researching LCD's and I find that the LCD I really want is the one in my G-15. Cost wise, Just buying a G-15 is pretty competitive with most of the Standalone LCD's I have been finding.
I'm wondering how hard it would be to separate the LCD from the rest of the keyboard, or if it is even possible.
Did you call up Logitech support for that old keyboard? They're amazing...So, did you ever find out how to make that LCD work standalone? My old G15 took a crap and I've since replaced it with a new one, I wanted to put the LCD on my case for stats and free up my keyboard LCD for tasks at hand.
Well first I took the entire keyboard apart to give it a wash, then I got lazy, then I put it in my closet then I ran out of closet space, now it's in a box at the back door waiting for the trash pile. It was a great keyboard for the 3 years I used it but eventually the WASD keys wore out so much they looked clear.OMG, you must be out of your mind. I love that keyboard and too throw it away. There has to be some sin that you commited there.
Yeah, I'm just worried about the risk. I've taken a lot o things apart in the past and fixed it, with the exception of a Nintendo DS. LoL... I took it apart and tore a ribbon cable. I ended up tossing it in the trash. =(same here. not sure if it's worth the trouble to replace to LEDs. I might give it a shot since I have a ton of 5mm's just sitting around.
Yes, had one of those. pretty worthless. you just need a decent iron. It's pretty hard to burn the board, and 5mm LEDs are pretty resilient. This keyboard doesn't look like it has any ribbon cables to tear, so you should be goodHmmmm.. decisions, decisions. On the bright side, I see parts on ebay all the time in case I do mess something up. Another setback is, I have no soldering iron.
Anyone have one of those cold soldering irons they used to sell on tv?
wow almost a 1 year necroI want to replace the LED's... my lights are really starting to dim and one of them is starting to flicker. Besides that, it still looks pretty new and had this thing since it was released.

Nice!anyone know if there's an app that shows load across all cores/threads? it would probably take up the entire screen (I have 24 threads) but hey, so long as it can do it!
