New Yoga 710 -- backlit keyboard won't turn off?

Hi all,

 

I just purchased a new yoga 710 15 inch laptop. Is there any other way to turn off the backlit keyboard other than Fn+spacebar? Anytime I turn on the laptop, the backlight turns on and will not turn off with those keystrokes. It is only a minor nuisance to have the backlight always on, but I would of course love to be able to turn it off in order to save battery. Is there anything else I can do, or is this just a defective machine? If it is defective, do you all think it's worth sending it in to fix the defect? I can't decide so I'd appreciate opinions, but hopefully there is some way that the keyboard can be turned off.

Hi amarquardt , 

 

Welcome to the Community Forums. 

 

Would the other function keys work using its hotkeys (page 4-5 as example)? 

Will FN + spacebar work if you set in safe mode as it suppose to go on on- dim of modes

 

You can try turning on the machine using the Novo button and set BIOS setup to defaults , check on version of BIOS if you have latest from the support site.

 

If you need further guide best that you call in technical support and they would be able to recommend you ways to proceed depending on the scenario and how the process of repair works so you can decide on your options too.

 

Update us how things go. 

 

Regards

Hi spidey101,

 

Trying fn+spacebar in safe mode fixed the issue! I rebooted my computer after doing this and turning safe mode off again and now the backlight works properly with fn+spacebar as it is supposed to. Thanks so much for your help!
