    Hey! The 'i' key on my old Ducky Shine 3 Magenta is starting to die, suddenly it became really dim compared to the others and Google has informed me this is the beginning of the end for the LEDs! So I want to get a few for replacement surgery.

    I believe they are 3mm but obviously, it'd be handy if anyone knows what would be an exact replacement. Especially colour-wise. This is where I wish I'd got a more normal colour. Every place I've found linked to online as selling identical replacements only does Red/Green/Blue/Yellow/White. :sigh:

    For now, I've just changed the settings so they're not constantly lit, but every time I see the 'i' key all dim and sad I get annoyed!

    You want 3mm flangeless but in magenta they seem to be hard to come by as I wanted to redo my daughters board with them.

    I have inserted flanged leds into cherry switches and they don't seem to cause an issue but don't quote me on that.

    A quick google shows a full set but would have to be imported I think.

    Yeah, that's exactly what I found. Import them or get non-Magenta ones! Even with Magenta I really hope they're the same colour. Some seem pinker and others more bluey purple.
    Oooh, will do, thank you :)

    Didn't get anywhere with this sadly. So, has anyone in the UK ordered from the MaxKeyboards.com site before?
