Keyboard Problems - Help much appreciated

So I've had my Corsair K70 for a couple of weeks now. And just today I noticed that the different lighting levels are not working. The LEDs are locked on. I can choose which ones to light up like normal, but the brightness is just not working. Any thoughts on why this is and how to fix it?

EDIT: The LED for the backlight customization key is not working. But the function is.

Hmmm the LED should change the brightness of the keys and itself when you click on it. Im guessing that when you have your brightness up, the brightness key itself is dark? If so, then it might be a hardware problem and you might consider RMAing it. If you don't mind(which i personally wouldn't), then go ahead and keep it as is. Though from my guess, the problem is definitely the LED behind the key, and not the function itself.

The brightness key and all of the others are on high. I can't change the brightness but I can change which ones are backlit, like I always have been able to.

So you can't adjust the backlight brightness?

You could probably still RMA it since its only been a few weeks. I personally have a K70 with red LEDs, and everything works fine. Was it like this when you bought it or was it just recently? Sorry, I don't have any real "fixes".

I just noticed it today. It was working perfectly fine last time I used it, like last week.
