X240 Fn key not working

Installed a new keyboard for my X240 (ordered from Lenovo according to serial number). Fn key now not working. I can only switch between Ctrl and Fn but only the physical 'Ctrl' key works and the 'Fn' key never works. 

 

I have also updated the latest BIOS. Can anyone help me to fix this problem?

It doesn't work.. The physical fn key doesn't work. I can't even use it to
wake the screen.

Re: X240 Fn key not working

Hi,

 

i have the very same problem with my X230. Suddenly, all Fn combinations stopped working, and I think it is OS independent (it appears at my machine running Windows 7 and Debian Linux).

 

Actually, I think it is related to what is described in this (older) thread:

https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/11e-Windows-E-and-Edge-series/Hotkeys-no-longer-working-ThinkPad-Edge-1...

 

And I definitly suppose that it is an BIOS/Firmware/Hardware Issue and not OS related.

What I tried so far, without luck: Upgrade a new BIOS and set BIOS values to factory default. No change.

Remove the battery for a minute and reboot. No change...

 

Any solution to this by Lenovo??

Does any one solved this issue ?

I get the same for my x240 i7 model.

Change the keyboard does not make it work.
