Satellite P850 - Backlit keyboard not working

Q: Satellite P850 - Backlit keyboard not working

Hello everyone,
I am a new user and I am really desperate to get the backlit keyboard working on my Satellite P850, normally it wouldn't be a problem but I spend a lot of time in low light situations and it would be so very helpful to me, it was also a feature that swayed me to purchase a model laptop with the ability to have a backlit keyboard.

If anyone could help me,I would be forever grateful

Thank you

I have the S50-B-15P model with Windows 10 installed. I never checked if the backlit keyboard worked on Windows 8.1, as soon as I got it I upgraded to Windows 10.

I have installed all the drivers from the Toshiba Windows 10 upgrade page however as before the keyboard works just not backlit!
I opened the eco utility software and checked for the keyboard backlit settings under eco mode however it does not exist and no setting exists in the BIOS either.The keyboard does have the symbol to enable the backlit function on the Z key however pressing FN + Z does nothing.

Does anybody have any ideas on how to fix this? Does the keyboard even have this function or is it faulty?

Thanks, Craig

Well, I upgrade my Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 and had to rollback the upgrade because some of my laptop's fn keys wasn't working. Only volume and brightness worked. Anyone knows how this can be fixed? The same thing happened when I updated my Windows 8 to Windows 8.1 but I think it was solved with a driver update. I tried to install the latest driver version but nothing changed.

My question is about the back lit strip.
My old keyboard; had a ribben cable coming out to LED light node and additional black plastic wraping on the backside of keyboard.
I broke the ribben from the old keyboard ( no not the regular ribben cable )
I reconnected the new keyboard which; did not have led lights or black plastic
I go into keyboard on control pannel and it says my keyboard is connected (1 to usb & 2 to the computers port Standard P/S2 keyboard& is working fine
.( it isnt working at all)
Does my laptop need to have the led circuit connected?
is it a loop to the keyboard ribben ( which i have connected)

I have talked to someone who believes this is for led(s) and all that is uncommon on non-backlit keyboards and should not be necessary for the keyboard to work and we believe its only lighting.

I had bought some HPs for my staff and they have gray keyboard lettering I cant get on with so I thought I'd buy another Tosh. Chose the U500-18T and nasty surprise - gray lettering.

Then I find it is supposed to have backlit kb. The UK version has the same design of kb as rest of world but no backlight - result unreadable below anything but a well lit room. They haven't even bothered to put white lettering on. Cheap or what. So I called Tosh to buy a new kb and they were quite contrite.
So I have ordered a replacement kb from the US. I'm quite happy with US layout. Question is - will it work?
Is the fn-Z key still going to work. Is the kb even going to work? Can anyone help?

The function to activate the backlights of my keyboard doesn't work as it should.
Sometimes I manage to turn the lights on, but this is only possible in the first 5 seconds after Windows started up (and thus the first seconds I can see my desktop). After around 5 seconds, there is no turning back. If they're on at that moment, they stay on and it's impossible to turn them off again and vice versa. (The lights are activated by pressing FN+W, because it's an azerty computer.)

This problem started to occur when I updated to Windows 10 several years ago. Last week, I did a factory reset and again had some problems with the hotkeys. The backlit problem came back to my memory and therefore I post here, to hopefully get a solution.

I already tried several things:
- changing from 'special functionkey mode' to 'standard F1-F12 mode'
- updating drivers (System drivers, Function key utility...)
- changing in BIOS setup (here I could turn the lights on or off, but this didn't solve the problem when my laptop was turned on and logged in)

- Microsoft Windows 10 Home

I just received my thinkpad P71 yesterday and I'm using it right now. Immediately off the bat, I removed the Hard drive in favor of a far better one. I'm curious to know does the keyboard require any special drivers for the backlit keyboard to work? I assume that it works similiarly to the W541 Backlit keyboard in which I hit Fn + Space Bar, it should work right? Well, currently it is not working. Keep in mind that this is on a Fresh install of Windows, does it need drivers to work? Thanks!

After installing an ssd recently, the backlighting on my keyboard no longer works. Every other button on the keyboard works normally, including the other built in function keys like mute, brightness, etc. I might have messed up some connection, but I didn't take the keyboard off at all to install the ssd, which was installed without issue itself. Another thought is that it might be a driver, since its a fresh drive and windows install. I don't really know what to look for though, so any thoughts you might have to help would be appreciated.

I have a new Dell XPS 13 Linux edition (this one) and immediately installed Linux Mint 18 on it, wiping the Ubuntu 14.04 which was shipped with the it.
I am really confident with it, only the backlight for the keyboard is not working. I have a keyboard light symbol on my F10 key but when I press it, nothing happens. All other features and all other media controls/media keys/screen brightness keys work. When clicking the battery icon in the Linux Mint taskbar, I see 2 controls, one for the keyboard lights brightness and one for the screen brightness. When I drag those bars, only the screen brightness is working again.
I also see the settings in /sys/class/leds/dell\:\:kbd_backlight/ (I think that's the config folder for it). The brightness file in this directory contains "1", so as I understand this correctly, this should theoretically work.
As I noted before I immediately installed Linux Mint on it, so I can't say whether it worked before. And this is really the only thing which is not working on the laptop.
I have obviously checked that my ultrabook has backlights with the product number on its back.
Do you have some tips so I can get this to work? Thanks in advance!

I assume that removed both the keyboard and palm rest first to remove the LCD assembly and finally the LCD bezel. I would go back and check the keyboard and make sure that both the keyboard data and back lite cables are connected correctly. The manual doesn't show a back lit keyboard, but on back lit keyboards there are two cables that will need to be connected.

I have a Latitude E5570. It did not come with a backlit keyboard. I purchased a dell laptop keyboard with backlit function. Installed it fine (noticed the extra ribbon cable that I assume is for the power for the backlight.

The F10 key includes the FN icon to enable backlight. But it is not working. Checking the bios, there is no setting as per the manual to enable the backlight. There are the two settings for how long before it times out either on AC or battery though.

Does anyone have any ideas? Is there a dell software I can install on windows 7 to enable this?

T560 backlit keyboard cannot be turned on as usual with physical button (Fn + Spacebar)

Read other answers

Hi all,  I recently purchased a T460s with some upgrades on the specifications (RAM 16 GB, GPU GeForce 930M and etc.). The initial operating system was set to Windows 7, so I upgraded to Windows 10 64 bit. I manually downloaded all the drivers required for this laptop and windows 10. While everything else runs pretty well, the keyboard backlight does not seem to work. I haven't checked if the backlight works on the previous operating system, so I am unsure if the problem is actually from the hardwares or if the OS was updated wrong. I am pretty sure that this model supports the keyboard backlit function since the space bar has that little image on the left side that (I'm guessing) indicates the function of backlit keyboards.  I'm wondering if there are actual drivers that I must intall prior to pressing the (Fn+Spacebar) keys to turn on the backlight, or if there is a problem with my computer. If it's the case of the latter, I am thinking about resetting my laptop (reinstalling windows 10). Being aware of how long it takes to download and install all the necessary components, once I do, is there any method of backing up the computer and after the reset just using that backup to go back to the original state where I have all my programs and data?  Thanks.

A:Latitude laptop backlit keyboard (not working)

Hi Hildo,
E-series Latitude portable systems have the option of a backlit keyboard. With the E3 series keyboard, there are several ways to set the backlit keyboard illumination. One can either press <FN> + <Right Arrow> to adjust the illumination. The other way is to adjust the illumination through Dell Control Point (DCP). From the main DCP screen, choose ‘Keyboard Backlight’. The settings you can adjust are as follows:



Activation Settings:- 

Keyboard light will automatically time out if there is no activity for certain time frame where the setting can be preset from 5 seconds up to 5 minutes.
Resume lighting from time out with default option as 'Keyboard'. This means whenever user presses any key on the keyboard, the keyboard backlight will light up provided the brightness is not set to 0%(Off). The other option available is 'All internal input devices'. If this option is chosen, other internal input devices like the touchpad, will also turn on the keyboard backlight on one touch.

You can also install Dell control point for your computer from link: http://dell.to/XDJhTF 
Steps to download:-

Click on “Download Now”.
Save the driver on your desktop.
Once the driver is downloaded on the desktop, right click on it and select “Run as administrator”.
Follow the prompts on screen and restart your computer.&n... Read more

Hello!I've been using my Latitude E6410 for a few years now and it's by far the best laptop I've ever had.Recently, my backlit keyboard stopped working. It's something that you don't appreciate enough until you lose it... :) So I got a new backlit keyboard for it and installed it, but it still doesn't work.I wonder if it could be a problem that's unrelated to the keyboard itself - maybe some motherboard issue / bios bug / whatever. Or maybe the new keyboard I got has its backlit feature broken.Any ideas?Please note it's been my computer for a while now, so I know all about how to activate it (alt+right arrow / bios setting). also note that it doesn't work even before the OS loads, where it used to work perfectly earlier.Thank you very much!

 I bought a backlit keyboard for my p50 from an online reseller (part# SN20K85143/ FRU 00PA317) because I thought having a backlit keyboard would be nice, and the price was good second hand (looks like new, seller said he prefered non lit version hence sale). I didn't have the time to replace the keyboard and it got left for a few months in the box, you know how it is sometimes ! So I installed the keyboard today (finally) and everything went fine.

Specifically [T,Y,P,[,], and delete keys, also Up, down arrows) .

When I purchased the laptop it cames with Windows 8.1. I upgraded to an SSD myself and put Windows 8.1 back on and almost immediately upgraded to Windows 10. Sadly, I do not remember if the backlit keyboard worked on 8.1 with the SSD. I assume I am missing some driver or something simple like that but I have had my laptop identified on the HP site and installed all the drivers for it. If I recall correctly pressing F5 should do the trick but it does not. Just an FYI, when I hit caps lock and the mute button it lights up orange as it should.

A:X1 Carbon Touch Backlit keyboard not working

Hi, architect7
Be sure to hold the Fn key while pressing the Spacebar to turn on the backlit keyboard. If you have already tried this to no avail, then I would recommend checking some BIOS settings. To enter BIOS, reboot the machine. When it is powering back up and you see the Lenovo splash screen, tap the Enter key repeatedly. A menu should appear. When it does, press F1 to enter BIOS. Once here, navigate to Config ? Keyboard/Mouse and check the settings of Fn and Ctrl Key swap and Fn Key Lock. For purposes of this test, make sure they are both set to Disabled. Once done, press F10 to save and exit. The machine should now boot normally. Log in to Windows and try to activate the backlight again and see if that works.
Best of luck,

When you start the notebook and before Windows loads does the keyboard light up?  You can also check in safemode, start the system while tapping F8 and choose safemode.  Log on to Windows, at any time in this process is the backlit on?  If not then there is likely a problem.  
If you aren't able to get the backlit on anymore no matter what you try please shoot me a private message.  On the Private message please include your name, address, phone number and the service tag of the notebook.  I will be happy to research possible service options.  If I can't help personally, I can certainly get you in contact with someone that can.
