Hi Fang,

 

Welcome to the Lenovo community!

 

X-ray machines emit an electromagnetic energy, which is not magnetic, and does not damage or destroy electrical equipment or magnetic sensitive data.

 

Press and hold the Fn key and then tap the spacebar. Repeat to turn it off.

 

If the keyboard backlights doesn't turn on during boot-up then you most likely have a non-backlit keyboard. To verify this, look it up on the Parts Lookup page:

 

Sample Parts:

Backlit Keyboard (Yoga 2 13)

KEYBOARD

25215033

USB-ST1C3B-CCY-BLKKEYBACKLIGHT-KBD


Hope this helps! Let us know how you get on.

Re: Yoga 2 13 keyboard backlight stopped working

1. it is a backlit keyboard. This is something i am 100% sure of

2. It stopped working at some unremembered point (around december 2015)

3. I went to washington by plane with the computer in my backpack and took it out so the xray could check it. 

4. When i got to the hotel the backlight started to work again

5. on the trip back it was also in my backpack

6. When i got back home the backlight stopped working 

 

it does not light up on startup anymore, it used to and did after i got to the hotel in washington

fn space does not work; it used to work and worked in washington

 

the problem is that it stopped working altogether

Hi Fang,

 

I would suggest you to visit the nearest Lenovo service centres since there could be some issue with internal mechanism.

 

Let us know how you get on.
