Post All replacement OLEDs are inoperative
Anyone know what to do with this problem?

All the of the spare OLEDs that came with the keyboard are seemingly broken. I had a key fail (the '7') and not one of the replacements worked. In the end I had to steal the Scroll Lock key. So I now have a keyboard with one non-functional display, and 3 dead spares.

Is there any easy way to prove they are busted?

Thanks.

Ensure you only replace the keys while the keyboard is powered down and power cable unplugged. To test the keys you need to ensure they are seated in place properly and the allow the keyboard to do a power up cycle. If they still fail they are probably duds, so call art for replacements.

At one stage I had replaced one upside down. Boy, that causes a lot of trouble. About half the other keys would not light up!

It's kind of hard to tell that they have a "right way round" - in the end I had to shine a bright torch on them to see it.

Thanks for the advice - all 3 are indeed dead. I'll put art's support to the test...

I have a similar issue with one of my replacement keys. It just appears to be nonfunctional.
