Lenovo x280 No Backlit - Help

Hello,

 

I'm Located at UAE, I bought lenovo x280  after I tried my new lenovo x280 I can't find backlit flashlight icon to turn it on.

 

I would like to inquire how to turn it on.

 

It's possible my keyboard does not allow backlit? If that is the case if I will replace english keyboard with backlit will it be compatabile with my device?

 

attached my keyboard

Welcome to the Community

The keyboard doesn't feature backlight. Its replacement is the only way if you need the backlight. New kb p/n (FRU) depends on the layout.

Re: Lenovo x280 No Backlit - Help

yes, both of them.
If you need bl keyboard with English layout only, their FRUs are:
01YP069
01YP229
01YP149

01YP040
01YP200
01YP120

They differ by manufacturer (Chicony, Primax, LiteOn, respectively), also the 1st three items have Euro symbol.

As an owner of an X280 with a backlit keyboard, I can say that the backlit keyboard has a backlight symbol printed on the top of the space bar. The keyboard in your image does not have this symbol on the space bar - hence no backlit key option.
