Ducky Shine 3 Troubleshooting

By ShakeR, August 21st, 2013

If you are a proud new owner of a Ducky Shine 3, here are some tips to make sure your awesome new mechanical keyboard is performing at its best.

  • The most common question we have had so far from Ducky Shine 3 owners is "How do I turn ON or OFF the LED backlights on my function keys?" Solution: FN + F9
  • If you are having issues with your Shine 3 sometimes 'crashing' (turning off for a short period of time) when you hit a modifier key + FN key, Ducky has released a firmware update to address this issue (see link below).
  • By default, the Shine 3 will reset the RGB spacebar lighting to cycle once the keyboard has been unplugged and plugged back in. Ducky's latest firmware update below may fix this.
