That’s almost certainly a wiring fault. The best thing to do is probably to send email to help@keyboard.io.

Thankyou. I have emailed them the issue and will see what happens.

I haven’t opened the keyboard yet, would there be something visual on the circuitry if it was a wiring problem?

I had a pretty similar issue with the column next to that (with 4 at the top). I solved it after receiving instructions and warranted backup from help@ by just resoldering/flowing the 4 keys in that column. There was nothing obvious through visual inspection that that column should be faulty. Initially opening up the case and poking them solved it for a day or two, but the problem returned. So far it’s been good with the reflow, but make sure keyboard.io sanction it first - if it had failed or I’d been unable to do it they would have replaced the PCB.

And indeed, that’s a short circuit on the “5” col. For folks who know how to solder, we can generally talk them through a really simple repair (within warranty). For folks who don’t, we’ll need to either repair or replace the affected circuit board assembly.
