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

2021-01-18, 15:13 PM

I have just recieved my new Legion i7, smart as you like, smooth contours, dark colours.....oh except for the INSANE rainbow colours bursting across my keyboard!!

On start up I actually enjoyed it, I thought it was like a 'welcome to your new Lenovo' gimmick, but then I swiftly realised it wasn't going anywhere.

How can we get Lenovo's attention? If all of us on this thread raise it as a ticket on Lenovo?

Yes, from what I can tell it is always persisted after boot/sleep/hibernate etc. Here is a printscreen with the fullscreen up, look in the lower right corner.

Really nice that works for you, which model legion do you have? 

 

For the Legion 7-15IMHg05 type 81YU there's no lightning option :(..

It is downright unbelievable.

 

Dramatic toy flashing colors in quite expensive equipment. to make matters worse, the backlight control software in the system is a big BUG. It causes dramatic battery consumption ( more then rest of system - with icue you get 2h and without icue you get 5h of battery life) , I have tried in many ways (reset all twice as support sugested, end only uninstalling icue allows you to get battery times as such.
So we completely lose control of the Christmas tree. It's amazing how Lenovo managed to screw up the entire USER EXPERIONCE.

 

Looking for new computer...

I will copy/paste the solution that worked for me on my Legion 7.

I know solution how to turn off it completely:

  1. uninstall iCUE

  2. use fn + some rgb controlling keys (-,+) under the macro keys, bottom left corner (on 15" model) Tada! You have turned off RGB lighting and spiral rainbow shouldn't be turned on automatically on boot anymore.

  3. if you want to use RGB use fn + spacebar commands.

So sorry for you all but so happy I read all this, cancelled my 7i order. I thought I was buying a gaming laptop that looked pro for normal office. 

 

 

Now I can find something else, hope you all get it sorted but I have had experiences of big corps, don't hold your breath.

I'm still waiting for Lenovo to fix this. It's literally the ONLY flaw in this laptop.

Well... I think will wait in vain... because NO support technician will look on this forum... is a "community forum" that could solve some "general usage" issues, but this matter needs a specialist.

 

If since 2018 there is no answer... I don't think there will be one any sooner...

 

But maybe this thread will help "new comers" to avoid the same problem and buy something else... and as for myself... to do the same on the next purchase...
