Hi Treacher, 

 

Welcome to Lenovo Community! And happy to have you here.

 

As I understand that you have query regarding replacing Keyboard with backlit in your T560.

As per psref it has optional backlit keyboard. And there are thread which suggests replacing backlit keyboard like this & this. So it should work.

For FRU you can go through this

 

I hope the above information helped you.

Please feel free to post in Lenovo Community Forums if you have any further queries!

 
Regards,

Prabhansh

Thanks for your answer

i'm glad to see how the lenovo community is responsive 

Thanks to you, i discovers the "psref" section

I'm going to buy the lenovo from a seller and its bios version says the the model type is 20FHS00601. Unfortunaltly i don't find it in the list. Maybe you could help

 

Thanks once again

Hi again, 

 

The model which is listed in psref depends upon location, may be that could be the reason and your Machine Type is same as listed in psref i.e., 20FH. So I don't find any issues in this & psreflist might not cover all the Lenovo products.

 

I hope the above information helped you.

 

Regards

Prabhansh
