I also tried to switch on backlit keyboard by pressing Fn+Space.but it didn't worked.

 

Lenovo claims that all the models of ideapad Z510/z410 have Backlit keyboard.

http://shop.lenovo.com/us/en/laptops/ideapad/z-series/z510#features

 

I searched some forums to get work this backlit feature. in one forum customer mentioned that if Laptop Space bar have backlit icon it works,but my laptop doesn't have any icon on Space bar.

But I again the keyboard I have and images(keyboard) on the Lenovo websites matched.

 

I don't know what do now.

 

I appreciate all the reply's.

 

Thanks in advance.

hi turtle7,

 

Yes That info is correct if a keyboard has a backlith Capability, it should have the icon on the Spacebar. and FN+Spacebar should trigger it.

I suggest calling the store  where you bought the unit ASAP to verify This cinfiuration on your system,

Re: idepad z510 backlit not working

I had a chat with Lenovo support on other day, they confirmed that this particular model doesn't shipped with backlit, online retailer cheated me.
