Backlit keyboard on X230

I have ThinkPad X230 (model 23202TG). I want to replace my keyboard with new one with LED backlight, but can't find information about keyboard backlight support in my laptop. Anyone knows does this model support keyboards with LED backlight?

 

If such support exists, where I can find FRU's for keyboard with backlit? I found this list, but seems there are only numbers without notes does this item has backlit or no.

 

Thanks a lot and sorry for my English.

Re: Backlit keyboard on X230

Every x230 model supports backlight keyboard. So you just need keyboard with backlight capability.

 

In the fru_bom database such keyboards are marked like this one: 04X1263 - B/L KBD RUS CHY <PRIMARY>



x220 • Gobi 2000 3g | hdd, msata ssd, wwan, wifi, gps -- unique hand-made config
ThinkPad 25 Special Anniversary Edition. #retro. Signed by D.Hill
T470p | X1 Carbon Gen3 | Miix 2 10" | Yoga Tablet 2-1050F (Android) + BT Keyboard
ThinkPad Stack • 2.4/5 Wireless Router, HDD 1 TB, BT Speaker, Power Bank, Mobile Projector

Do it well, worse becomes itself

Re: Backlit keyboard on X230

Hello.
are you sure about this fact?
I have recently bought a new backlight keyboard for my old x230 - 2325ZGK (PRU 04X1376) and the backlight doesn't work. I press fn+space and only at third strike I get Thinklight. The guys taht sold me the keyboard sate that "it may or may not work, depends on if originally it had a backlight KB or not"!
