Re: T560 Backlit Keyboard not working

Hi,

 

Did it ever work.  Does the Spacebar have the backlight symbol on it?  According to the base spec the backlit keyboard was optional - although I have no idea if any actually shipped without it.

Re: T560 Backlit Keyboard not working

If you just boot into the BIOS so there is nothing running, does the backlight work?  If not, my guess is that you most likely need a new keyboard.  (Other less-likely things can also cause those symptoms, but keyboard is most likely.)
