Good day and welcome to the community.

Looking at pg12 of the X230T user guide, there appear to be models with, and without, a backlit keyboard: https://download.lenovo.com/ibmdl/pub/pc/pccbbs/mobiles_pdf/x230t_x230it_ug_en.pdf

 

Does your spacebar have this icon on it:

 

If not, then you don't have a backlit keyboard. If it does have the icon, the pressing Fn and tapping the spacebar should toggle the backlight.

 

Hpe this helps.
Regards.

Have a look at the screenshot in this post:

https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-X-Series-Tablet-and/Just-got-my-new-X230-Tablet-had-some-questions-on-how-to-work/m-p/889603#M13961

 

When you tap Fn+spacebar, do you get an on-screen icon like the one shown in the image? If so, I read that thread to mean that there's no keyboard backlight. Unlike non-tablet ThinkPads of simlar generation, I don't think there's a light in the upper screen bezel (ThinkLight) of the tablet models.

 

Regards.
