I have the ducky one 2 mini frozen llama edition and can't seem to use the exclamation point. 1 works fine but not with shift. Anyone know what the error could be and how it could be fixed? I've reset the board to factory settings, unplugged it and not sure what else I could do.

I’m struggling to use the # key. On the Keycap this is printed as 3. Alt + 3 doesn’t work and shift +3 gives you $

Zeynel Abidin Öztürk Admin says in reply to : 32 days ago 2/24/2020 8:31 AM
Have you tried Ctrl + Alt + 3?

I don't have Ducky One but in my keyboard it's AltGr+3 which means Ctrl+Alt+3

You can use FN + Alt + T to switch between Backlit modes, you'll eventually come to one that turns all Backlit off.

Take a look at page 23 of the manual:

Carl says: 5 months ago 11/7/2019 8:25 PM
Very helpful guide, many thanks!

Brandon says in reply to Carl : 2 months ago 1/13/2020 10:35 PM
First, go to your desired color pattern (breathe, full backlit, reactive, etc.). Then you press Fn+Alt+V to erase all color choices, so no light should be showing at this point. Then press Fn+Alt+Z until you get to the color of red you desire. Hope this helps. I recommend that you use backlit while finding the color red that you want.

Whaka says in reply to Carl : 2 months ago 1/13/2020 6:16 PM
Not sure if you're still browsing or figured it out - but i'll post in the event anyone else comes looking.

FN + Alt + T will switch between Backlit modes (the way your keys light up). One of these modes is solid colour.

FN + Alt + V will "reset" your colour choice - your lights will turn off.

Holding FN + Alt will highlight keys Z, X and C. These can be pressed up to 10 times each, increasing your colour depending on the colour shown on each key. You can mix these. If you go by 10, it will reset that particular colour back to 0 (off).
