Legion 7: Stop the RIDICULOUS Spiral Rainbow Keyboard backlight effect!! Let us turn it off!!

2021-07-14, 13:34 PM

For Legion Y740, some administrators had provided the keyboard firmware files with changes colors. Can be found here: https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Gaming-Laptops/Stop-the-RIDICULOUS-Spiral-Rainbow-Keyboard-backlight-effect-Let-us-turn-it-off/m-p/4552233?page=10#5271691

 

Please provide the firmware for Legion 7 where default lighting is none instead of spiral OR provide some other way to turn off the ridiculous lighting.

Hello @musamaanjum,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

I believe that there is no way to currently turn this off. You still have the option of manually disabling the backlighting if you prefer it to be off.

Hope this helps.
Regards,
Jack_Lenovo1

There isn't even any manual way to turn off the lighting completely. It is agonizing. The best which is possible is when the lighting is turned off and lighting appears in a rhythmic way when you press any key. Still, it is unacceptable. 

 

@Juraj_Lenovo Can you please provide the firmware for Legion 7 just like you had provided for Legion 740 here?

There is a way to turn the lights off, but its hacky as ICUE version 3 keeps breaking the feature on purpose.

 

If you disable plugins in ICUE or disable icue entirely, you can set the hardware lighting modes by pressing FN + space

 

The 4th and 5th modes are for some reason sound affected lighting modes, there is no lighting mode where its entirely disabled.

 

The way i have it set up is like this:

 

Disabled ICUE service

Disabled plugins in ICUE version 3

Pressed FN + spacebar until i see the lighting mode where nothing shows up when no audio is played

Turned lighting of the keyboard off by pressing FN + arrow down a ton

 

This will not show any lights during start up because no audio is played until the softwarer turns down the brightness of the keyboard.

 

This does take away your ability to have custom RGB lighting in the ICUE software sadly, i wish lenovo went after corsair because they only listen to companies.

 

I have tried contacting corsair and every other support department from lenovo, none of them caused a new update to be made.

 

I just noticed you have the 740, i thought you were talking about the lenovo legion 7 16achg6. maybe this works but this is the case for the legion 7 2021
