Hey there, I found a similar topic but unfortunately, there was not a final response that solved my problem. I own a Yoga 13 Ideapad without the backlight function, unfortunately. Recently I watched a video of a keyboard replacement and I would like to do that with mine in order to replace it with a backlight keyboard. The problem is that I am not sure if my model features the needed connections. The model number is: 219159342273 if that helps.  I found backlight keyboards described as "original" Lenovo parts for about 30?. Is that realistic or fake?Thank you for your help!!!

It appears that the backlight on the keyboard of the T450s times out after a minute or so and turns off.  I can then turn it back on by pressing FN + Space but it's extremely annoying to have to keep doing this.  I am not seeing anywhere in the bios or lenovo settings where I can have the keyboard backlight stay on always unless I manually turn it off.

I'm suspecting a Motherboard problem.It's the i5-52000u w/ R7 M360 AMD GPU.When powering on, nothing happens for a while. A clicking sound is heard out of one speaker, at approx 1 hertz. Also the screen barely visibly flickers at the same frequency.When problem first noticed, the machine would go through 20-100 of these cycles Before loading up "lenovo" sign, BIOS,etc , then progressively more.I've tried combinations of booting with peripherals (VGA, HDMI, usbs, power cable) plugged in and not.The amount of cycles the laptop goes through before finally loading the Lenovo screen, from which OS boot sequence starts, or accessible BIOS via num+f2, has been increasing, to the point of taking an hour. I've opened her up to see if anything is poorly plugged in, everything works well. The thermal logic chips work ok, the HDD spins ok. But the BIOS and any boot sequence is inaccessible until it randomly starts working. Mostly I have to wait 30 min to an hour, but sometimes it's only 15 minutes.It's probably the Motherboard, but I wanna know what failed/failing?The laptop works flawlessly once the LENOVO logo shows up; i can access BIOS, etc.This happens during a restart, an on- and off.I've tried disconnecting the battery, and pulling the CMOS battery out and letting it sit for like 10 minutes. Kinda sucky. Because it's probably some small voltage regulator or something that's super faulty.At this point, the laptop is approaching three years old. Replacement Mobos are like ... Read more

My keyboard backlight doesn't go on and off automatically anymore depending on how light or how dark it is.  I have discovered this happens since i "upgraded" Lenove Settings to Lenove Vantage. I never gave it much thought because it worked always. Now that it is somehow gone i am experiencing how highly inconvenient this is in my work flow.  There isn't even an option anymore in Lenovo Vantage to enable automatic backlight... Why? I have never heard of 'upgrades' that actually demote an important every day function, and add an inconvenient annoyance.   Please tell me i am missing something, otherwise there is no excuse for this horrible 'upgrade'. Thanks.

Hi,For your information, almost everyone says it's working by "fn+space" but for my laptop it was "double space", i don't know why.Anyway, backlight was working fine until yesterday. Fan started to get loud so i took my laptop apart and cleaned the fan. The noise is gone but backlight stopped working. Capslock, numlock lights and fn key are working, i do not know if there is a correlation. I read almost every topic about the issue but none of them helped.

Hello, 
I've just bought a new dell inspiron 7559. When I was buying it, the consultant said that it is a little different from other 7559, because it has swedish keyboard. But the only difference is that it has two extra keys. I came home with my new laptop, and tried turning on the led on the keyboard but it didn't happen. I found out that f10 key should have an icon that shows that it should turn on the backlight. Mine does not have one. as of right now I'm using linux ubuntu.
Any Ideas? What should I do? Is it possible that my laptop does not have a led keyboard because it's swedish?

Hi,
I have a Dell Inspiron 1500 5000 Series laptop, Windows 10. 
I would like to toggle my backlight keyboard. I see it on my keyboard, and in the Windows Mobility Center, but I would like to increase the duration. Currently, my keyboard stays lit for 60 seconds. I would like it to not turn off at all.
Can I turn off the backlight timer? Can I chose to keep it on for more than 60 seconds?
Thank you so much.

A:Keyboard Backlight

Hi talynnkpayne,
The duration of the backlight on your keyboard cannot be increased. As it is designed in such a way that when you leave it idle after few seconds the backlit will turn off. However, when you press any keys, the backlight will be turned on again until and unless you manually turn it off.
