Re: T470 backlit keyboard not working

No drivers are needed.  If you have a backlit keybiard and it doesn't light, you have a defective keyboard.

Re: T470 backlit keyboard not working

Use the Hardware Maintenance Manual of the T470 to see if the cable for the backlit functioning is connected to the motherboard. You can find the manual here:

However, if you're still in warranty, I would suggest contacting technical support in your country.
