Xim flashing purple?
« on: 12:55 AM - 05/23/20 »
Title.

Iíve had my Apex for around 2 years now, no issues at all since this happened. I donít notice any difference in how my Apex performs, itís just an occasional flashing purple light.

Tried turning all lights on my keyboard and mouse off, unplugging both and only having my controller in only. Still persists.

Firmware is 20200307. I have nothing else connected besides the Apex, no Titan, no Cronus.

This means there is a timing issue your XIM APEX is detecting. Does it only happen as you are moving your mouse?

Yes, and it only recently started after updating to the 20200307 firmware.

Nope, I only use the Apex.

Are you using a USB switch?

No, I only have the Apex plugged in.

I think I fixed it, I ended up completely unplugging my controller and plugging it back in. So far no purple lights two hours in, Iíll update if the issue returns but for now it seems fixed.

If it happens again, I'd try using a different cable.
