Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13 Silver Keyboard Replacement + voltage & current of backlit on Yoga2 keyboard

Q: Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13 Silver Keyboard Replacement + voltage & current of backlit on Yoga2 keyboard

Hi! I've got Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13 Silver (https://www.alza.cz/EN/lenovo-ideapad-yoga-13-silver-d375124.htm), and while I am quite content with the device, my keyboard stopped working. I was wondering whether any of you might know and suggest an online reseller (official or otherwise), where I could get hold of a replacement keyboard. Now, I suppose backlit keyboard versions of newer Yoga laptops will not work I guess, will they? From what I have read Yoga 13 Silver does not have the slot required for backlit, but aside that, will the keyboard function and will it fit (dimension-wise)? If so, what is the voltage and current required? Would soldering a small battery to the backlit cable be a good idea (I accept the fact that I wouldn't be able to regulate it)? Thank you in advance!ck

Hello. I have lenovo ideapad 300-15IBR and I want to replace my ordinary keyboard by backlight keyboard. So could you tell me if is it possible? Is my laptop compatible with backlit keyboard?

A:Lenovo ideapad 300-15IBR backlit keyboard?

Hi tachilla, 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
Checking the general specification for IdeaPad 300 (15'') Platform Speci?cations here, backlit keyboard features is not available to similar model types 80Q7 as the motherboard does not offer power connection for the keyboard backlit as shown from the hardware manual FRU keyboard list pages 78-81.
 
No power connection portSample keyboard with backlit cable
 
You can follow the keyboard guide here on page 40-41 of the hardware manual to physical check on your motherboard model as it may not likely be compatible with a backlighted keyboard making it not possible to upgrade.
 
Hope this helps answer your query.
 
Regards

Boot into the OS and everything looks grand. Backlights work, function options work. I then do a quick keyboard test in note pad and I discover that some keys do not work.

Hi,
I have purchased a Dell Inspiron 5567 and wish to upgrade the keyboard to a Backlit one. The keyboard I have bought is compatible with the laptop, and the laptop also has the connector on the Mainboard for the backlight flex cable. The problem is that the present keyboard does not seem to come off. It is under the Palmrest and secured from the back with a sheet metal which is moulded into the body of the laptop. I have contacted some people and they said that in order for the keyboard to come out I would have to break these seals/moulds. Is this recommended or should I just stick to the normal non-backlit keyboard the laptop came with? I am also concerned about voiding the warranty if I do this modification.Thanks in advance,Alex.

Hi all, I just purchased a new yoga 710 15 inch laptop. Is there any other way to turn off the backlit keyboard other than Fn+spacebar? Anytime I turn on the laptop, the backlight turns on and will not turn off with those keystrokes. It is only a minor nuisance to have the backlight always on, but I would of course love to be able to turn it off in order to save battery. Is there anything else I can do, or is this just a defective machine? If it is defective, do you all think it's worth sending it in to fix the defect? I can't decide so I'd appreciate opinions, but hopefully there is some way that the keyboard can be turned off.

Hi amarquardt , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
Would the other function keys work using its hotkeys (page 4-5 as example)? 
Will FN + spacebar work if you set in safe mode as it suppose to go on on- dim of modes ? 
 
You can try turning on the machine using the Novo button and set BIOS setup to defaults , check on version of BIOS if you have latest from the support site.
 
If you need further guide best that you call in technical support and they would be able to recommend you ways to proceed depending on the scenario and how the process of repair works so you can decide on your options too.

Hi all,a few days ago, presumably after some Lenovo (or Win 10) software update, i noticed that the backlit keyboard had just 3 modes left: off, low and high. The fourth mode, automatic, which was indeed available in the preceding days, was gone.It is no more listed in the Lenovo Settings app, and i cannot anymore choose it neither by using the Lenovo Settings app nor by cycling among backlit modes with fn-space.I add that in the device manager everything is ok, there are no yellow marks so the light sensor should be working properly: in fact, the screen brightness can still be set to automatic.Any idea on what could be done to get back the automatic mode? Maybe there are some regedit entries to be fixed, or something like that?Best regards and thanks in advance.

Hi, everyone. I would really appreciate any help on this to retain the maximum usage of my X240. The special alternate functions of F1, F2 and F3 keys are not completely functioning. I recently replaced my keyboard recently to a backlit one, only to find out that the alternate special functions of F1, F2 and F3 keys (mute, volume down and volume up) are not working completely.The funny thing is that the indicator lights up when the computer is freshly booted and EVEN DOES WORK for the first few minutes, BUT malfunctions after a few minutes. What's weird is that the NORMAL functions of F1, F2 and F3 keys are STILL WORKING despite the malfunction of the alternate special functions. To illustrate, here's a sample scenario: 0-~2 minutes: computer powers up; desktop is shown. keys function as they should, including special functions of F1, F2 and F3 (mute, volume down, volume up). Keylight indicator in F1 (mute indicator) working. 3 minutes and beyond: standard function of F1, F2 and F3 continues to function, but the special functions DOES NOT work anymore. Keylight indicator in F1 (mute indicator) is not working anymore. This happens everytime I boot. I tried to search forums for solutions, but I haven't found a solution yet. While this does not necessarily ruin the whole typing experience for me, it does cause a slight annoyance, especially with the fact that I cannot change the volume without manually going to the controls myself.  C...

Dell generally charges repairs for other than mainboard or screen replacement at a flat rate that probably exceeds what a local shop will charge, but you will find the Spare Parts line and out of warranty support here:
<<www.dell.com/learn/uk/en/ukbsdt1/services/special-warranty-services>>
They'll generally charge for a repair estimate and then apply the charge to the cost of the repair.    In the US, a keyboard replacement is a flat $149 -- the keyboard itself is likely under $50 and is a user-replaceable part.

Hello,
 
I was just wondering, as the title says, if it's possible to buy a backlit keyboard from Lenovo or any other place for my laptop? If not possible to buy from Lenovo directly, any other suggestions?
 
I bought a Lenovo Yoga 500-14IBD (14" screen, to confirm) and I am pretty happy with it for the amount it cost, but ideally it would also have a backlit keyboard. But as this isn't a flag ship or even premium device to an extent this feature is not present - even though backlit keyboards in my opinion shouldn't just be exclusively found in premium devices.
 
I'm not big on customising computers more than just simple things like upgrading the RAM but I would definitely consider installing a backlit keyboard in this laptop if the installation wasn't too difficult and the keyboard itself isn't too expensive.
 
Thanks,
 
 
Moderator comment: Model added to subject for clarity.

A:Y500 - Buy a Backlit Keyboard from Lenovo or Anyon...

Unfortunately, each keyboard is usually made for that specific build line. Unless the Yoga 500 14 has a backlit keyboard as an option, you'll be likely unable to find one, unless someone modifies them (which in itself is very difficult due to the thin profile of keyboards nowadays).
