Lenovo T460 strange key backlight working after cleaning keyboard and upgrade BIOS

2020-08-22, 19:28 PM

I have T460 and keyboard backlight working, but strange is, that is not enabled by Fn key + Space as obvious, but is switched on by pressing Fn key or right Alt 

All is vissible on this video https://photos.app.goo.gl/ps54KFrWeZSM5f8P7


I was cleaned this keyboard, because was filled by some sweet drink, I removed it, and washed in detergent and then in warm clear water. 

After this I dry it, but after power on some keys not worked. Then laptop disabled and stay some days for dry. After this all keys working, only backlight working strange


I upgraded BIOS too - as you can see on wideo


Is possible, that strange keys functionality is based by new BIOS, or I damaged some in keyboard when cleaning ant no super drying at first time and try laptop switch  on?


thank you so much for answer...
