I recently bought a CODE V3 (Brown) keyboard, and all the keys work fine except for backspace. Depending on the angle of force, the backspace key will catch on something and not go down smoothly:
- If I pull the key toward me as I press down: the key is as smooth as other similar-sized keys.
- If I push the key away from me as I press down: the key sticks. On applying more force, it will suddenly unstick and register a keypress, often noisily bottoming out.
It is bugging me because backspace is a commonly-used key, and I have a tendency to push the keys at an angle away from me, I think especially on the upper rows. The key still works, but if I'm not careful with how I press it, it's noticeably less smooth than the other keys on the keyboard.
Any ideas on what to do? I removed and replaced the keycap/stabilizer several times to no effect. I didn't see anything obviously wrong with it, but this is my first mechanical keyboard and I don't really know what to look for.
