Latitude laptop backlit keyboard (not working)

Q: Latitude laptop backlit keyboard (not working)

Hi All,
Decided to to upgrade my E6320 with an backlit keyboard so i got an new unit from Parts-people.
Now installed to new board in my E6320 but the backlit function doesn't work. everything else on the keyboard works like it should but no backlit. downloaded a lot of new drivers like "dell system manager" and tried so many things.
I'm starting to doubt if they send me an actual backlit keyboard, but it has an capslock button with an lighted led which works and my old keyboard does not have this. so i'm geusing this isnot the issue?
Any input help would be great.
Thans a lot for checking.

Preferred Solution: Latitude laptop backlit keyboard (not working)

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

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:

Brightness:-


0%(Off)
25%
50%
75%
100%


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.

Please let me know the findings.

I purchased a Latitude e5470 laptop without the backlit keyboard and without the extra tracking ball you find in the center of the keyboard. I just have a regular non-backlit key board and then the tracking pad.
I've only seen the backlit keyboard with the tracking ball included. This does not fit my keyboard slot. There is an extra edge under the spacebar. I want to know if I can now buy a replacement keyboard that has the the backlit feature and fits in my keyboard slot.
Thanks.

Bought my machine used, so it didn't come with a warranty. Was strapped for cash after my HP fried, and wanted something to use. Anyway, the backlight on the keyboard won't stay constantly on, like I'm used to. BTW..very disgusted with HP for 3 years. Voiced my opinion to my pc-savy son, and he said that Dell is the step child of pc's. So, naturally I expected tech support, out of warranty like I had in the past with my other machines. Nope! No such animal. was told umpre-emptily that they cannot help me. I'm like ***?
Hope you can help. Right now, said backliight is on, but don't know for how long. Thanks.

Hello Everyone!I bought an open box Dell Latitude E5470 today at a very cheap price. Unfortunately this laptop had a non backlit keyboard and a TN (1600 x 900) panel but it had the much needed 6300HQ, so I went ahead and bought it thinking that I can always buy a backlit keyboard later from aliexpress. I looked at aliexpress again today and noticed something I had overlooked before purchasing the laptop and that is that all backlit keyboards available for E5470 have a different shape thanks to the two stupid top mouse buttons that are not present in my variant of E5470. I now have to find a new top panel with frame that has the cutout for those two extra mouse buttons. This is a nasty situation for me as I am not even sure if the required top panel will be compatible with my variant of E5470. Any advise on what I should do?

Hi people,
Do you know if it is possible to take an E5430 that was built with a non-backlit keyboard and upgrade the keyboard in the field to the backlit version?
I gather from what I've read elsewhere that this may be possible with some models (perhaps the E6400) but in others (perhaps the E5510 for example) extra control and/or power circuitry would be absent in a model originally equipped with a non-backlit keyboard, meaning that even with the correct keyboard, BIOS and control software options the backlight still wouldn't function. Assuming these two categories do exist, I can't find a list of which models are in which category.
 
Any help appreciated!
 

A:Latitude E5430 - backlit keyboard retrofit?

Hi Brandon,
Belated thanks for the reply. I can see how that would be a useful test for other models, but this one only has a single cable connecting all of the keyboard functions whether fitted with a backlit keyboard or not, and having read other users’ experience of the E5510 (see below) I wasn’t convinced that the single cable, and seeming location of the inverter on the keyboard guarantied success.
Bottom line: This is now resolved for me; I asked a lot of questions, finally found an economical and low-risk way of trying a backlit keyboard, ordered an appropriate part and now have a fully functional backlight! If you want more detail, read on.

It might seem obvious that a backlit keyboard could be successfully retrofitted, but I didn’t feel confident, especially having read this excellent thread: http://en.community.dell.com/support-forums/laptop/f/3518/t/19442203
As well as trawling the net and asking here I followed the links to Dell parts support and sent them an email. By that stage I had received two replies from sellers of supposedly genuine Dell parts – one selling a backlit keyboard for £20 that strangely (it seemed to me) lacked the trackstick, saying that as my machine was built with a non-backlit keyboard he doubted it would work, and another selling what appeared to be the standard backlit keyboard (with trackstick) for £50, who said ‘it should be ok’. Both these sellers later confirmed that they were offering ... Read more

Dear colleagues
On my laptop above, I have just installed a new backlit keyboard to replace the old (non-backlit) keyboard. 
The good news is that the backlighting works perfectly.
Once the laptop has been placed on the docking station, one can still type with the new keyboard. However with it on the docking station the backlighting is not working at all. Whatever I do; with it on the docking station there is no backlighting. As soon as I release it from the docking station the backlighting is operational again.
Please does anyone have similar issue with solution or can anyone provide some advice or solution. I would like to be able to use it on the docking station with backlighting operational

Hi,
I bought a backlit keyboard for my latitude 6420 which was only equiped with a non backlit model at the time I got it.
When hitting Fn + >, nothing happens. I read many things on the web and it looks like we have to go into the BIOS and enable the backlit. I've been told that I should find the menu under System configuration and Keyboard Illumination but I don't have this menu...
I also had a look and the hot keys and don't have the ones related to the backlit keyboard... Looking at the Control Panel, Keyboard Properties, I don't have the Backlight tab, "Keyboard Brightness".Does someone know how I can enable my backlit keyboard and have it detected as such?
Prior buying the backlit keyboard, I got in touch with the Dell support to make sure I can upgrade my notebook with a backlit model without facing compatibility issues. They told me that I just needed to order the backlit model as a spare part and it will work... but it doesn't...
Does somebody know how I can get the backlit keyboard working or is it just a bad luck and it will never work? thanks in advance for your help!

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.

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 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?

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,
Adam

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.

I liked my old laptop, Inspiron 9300, but I always used it late at night and always wished I had a backlit keyboard.
My main computer has a Core i7950, 6GB Ram, 1TB HDD, yada yada yada, so I don't need much for a laptop. Something to carry around, mess with while I'm on the couch, etc. Would like a decent sized screen...my Dell was 17" I beleive, wouldn't want anything tiny.
Thanks and Happy Holidays.

Is there any way I could install a backlit keyboard on my HP 255 G5 Notebook PC? I find it very hard to see what I'm typing without a backlit keyboard. Also, would it void my warranty?

A:Any way to install backlit keyboard on my laptop?

@Bad_Wolf This series does not support the backlit keyboard. Service and Maintenance Manual Although I have not used one for awhile, I have in the past made use of the USB keyboard lights that you can find at various online stores.  Some of these devices are arguably better at the task than others -- if you are sitting in the dark facing a dark keyboard, almost anything is better than staring at a dark abyss. If you decide to make use of one of these useful devices, read the reviews before you purchase and see what others say. When you see a Post that helps, inspires, provides fresh insight,or teaches you something new, click the Thumbs Up on that Post.Fixed / Answered?
