Lenovo Yoga 13 Ideapad replace keyboard with a backlight keyboard

2018-07-05, 22:18 PM

Hey there,


I found a similar topic but unfortunately, there was not a final response that solved my problem. 
I own a Yoga 13 Ideapad without the backlight function, unfortunately. Recently I watched a video of a keyboard replacement and I would like to do that with mine in order to replace it with a backlight keyboard.


The problem is that I am not sure if my model features the needed connections. The model number is: 219159342273 if that helps. 


I found backlight keyboards described as "original" Lenovo parts for about 30€. Is that realistic or fake?

Thank you for your help!!!

Hi YogaMate,


Similar to this discussion , I don't think you would have the backlit keyboard slot on the motherboard even if others would offer baklit keyboard that fits the assembly.



There is also no mention from the hardware manual (page 63-64) or part look up for backlit keyboard option for the model. You can physically check your systemboard below the keyboard but I higly doubt that the backlit slot is available.


I hope this helps answer your query.
