backlit keyboard

2019-02-11, 16:41 PM

hello, this is im frist post, sorry if i fail something.

i have the lenovo essential B50-80, but it doesn't have the backlight keyboard and it's not a good thing, because when it is night is very hard find the correct keys.

i have a question, there's a change that i can replace my keyboard with a backlight keyboard, if i can, where i can find it online?

 

thanks

I've checked both PSREF and Hardware Maintenance Manual and backlit keyboard wasn't offered for your laptop. There are some sellers which claim, that they have backlit keyboards for B50-80, but I can't tell if they will work or not.

I know...but online I see the backlit keyboard for Lenovo G50-80, I have seen a lot both the keyboard and there are the same type, and the same dimensions.

can I use that keyboard and find somewhere in the motherboard a pin for the light?

AFAIK, there's no such a dedicated PIN on the motherboard. Some people advised to use one of USB ports for this purpose, but I can't say whenever it'll work or not.

Hello!

I have seen in the motherboard a pin in front of the pin for the keyboard, and it's free, there is a change that it can be used for the leds of the keyboard?
