If you can do without the backlight, there _might_ be some availability on the 01ER951.  AliExpress?

I believe P51/P71 keyboards are the same as P50/P70 and more of those can be found.  When I looked at eBay, what I saw would make me afraid of buying inexpensive ones from China.  I would fear that they were not genuine.  I looked at eBay item 142061967427 which is part number 00PA247.  The picture of the front shows a KB without a backlight, and the back confirms it is 00PA247.  I happen to have a spare 00PA247 that came from Lenovo.  It is sitting on my lap in a factory bag right now.  It IS a backlit KB (as it should be).  My guess is that the one from eBay is a fake.
