So you are saying that my t540p that came with regular keyboard will support the back lit keyboard once installed.

Re: t540p backlit keyboard swap

My T540P is 20BE00B6TW. I have replaced with the backlit keyboard but it's not working. Does this type not support? There is the three status indicators shown on the screen when I press the Fn+Space. Any one know the solution?

 

Thanks,

James
