Z50-70 backlit keyboard not working

Hello everybody,

 

just purchased a Z50-70 and am pleased so far.

However, the A**zon product specifications stated it would have a backlit keyboard (bought the 59424714). Up to now I have not been able to switch it on (Fn+space doesn't work) and/ or find any settings for it.

 

Can anybody help?

 

Thanks in advance!

Make sure all drivers are installed and up to date, also check bios settings just to double check everything is ok in there.

Thanks iDesign. Will do. What exactly would I be looking for in BIOS?

I have the same problem. On my keyboard there isnot even a sign on the space key but the datasheet says that the notebook has a backlit keyboard. 

 

Do you found a solution for your problem?

Re: Z50-70 backlit keyboard not working

Hey you two, sorry for the late reply. I spoke to Lenovo customer support through German amazon. They said that under the SAME model number there are two versions: the OLDER Version has a backlit keaboard, the newer Version doesn't!
Amazon is sending me another one in the hope that it has a backlight. If it hasn't, they offered discount...

As far as I can see the rest of the specs is exactly what it said in the product specifications. Hope that helps?

Re: Z50-70 backlit keyboard not working

If you have a backlight symbol on the keyboard then you have a backlight keyboard laptop version.

Maybe you have to install lenovo energy management to get it to work.

I want to change my lenovo z50-70 keyboard to a backlight version but i don't know the FRU number for the backlight keyboard. This can be found by lenovo parts lookup site http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/ibasepartslookup

Can you PM me pls your laptop Serial Number or post the keyboard FRU (if you have a backlight symbol on the keyboard)

Thanx!
