Can I replace the keycaps on the Razer BlackWidow Lite?
Yes. The Razer BlackWidow Lite comes with a keycap puller for easier keycap removal. Please be careful when removing larger keys (e.g., spacebar, shift, etc.) as some of these keys will have stabilizers and could break if removed hastily.
The backlight on some of the keys on my Razer BlackWidow Lite has turned yellow instead of white. What can I do?
This can be caused by dirt that could have accumulated under the keycaps and/or switches. Please follow the cleaning recommendations and check again.
How do I clean my Razer BlackWidow Lite?

Before cleaning, we suggest unplugging the device from your computer. If you wish to clean under the key caps, Razer suggests holding the unit upside down and/or using compressed air from a can. The overall finish can be cleaned with wipes generally used for cleaning your computer monitor or sunglasses. Please ensure that the surface is free of large dust particles or debris before wiping the surface with any product. Wiping debris into the surface can lead to minor scratches on the surface of the unit.

Note: Under no circumstances should you ever submerge the keyboard in any type of liquid. Submerging the keyboard in any liquid will void the warranty on your keyboard.

Can I adjust the backlight brightness on the Razer BlackWidow Lite?
Yes, you can adjust the backlight brightness in Synapse or on-the-fly by using Fn + F11 to make it dimmer and Fn + F12 to make it brighter.

What is on-the-fly macro recording?
On-the-fly macro recording allows users to record lengthy macros in the game, without having to access driver menus or other software. For example, hitting the "Macro Record" key and then inputting a sequence of multiple spells in World of Warcraft saves this action to the specified key. The same sequence of spells can then be executed automatically with the actuation of that one button.

Simply remove the keycap by using the included keycap puller and slide the O-ring to the bottom of the keycap. Then reinstall the keycap for a quieter sounding key stroke. This will also shorten the length of the key travel and can help with typing fatigue.
