I would like to know this too as I have just bought one to find out that only SOME models have the backlit keyboard but no-one is able to tell me which model actually has the backlit keyboard.

Answer:How to turn on keyboard backlight for lenovo G570

Hi Sravan,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
I?m sorry to inform you that the Backlight feature is no provided in G570 Laptop and if it is present a symbol will be imprinted on the ?Spacebar? key. If there is no symbol on it, this means the backlight is not present in your computer.
 
Do post us back for further queries.

Is there a way to permanently enable the keyboard backlight in my Lenovo Y50-70? Something via BIOS? I really need the lights to be on independently to the operating system (ie. no switch required to turn it on (Fn+space)). Help would be welcome

Answer:Lenovo Y50 keyboard backlight - Turn on forever

Does it turn off automatically for you? If I turn the backlight on it stays on even after shuting down laptop. To disable the backlight I have to use the fn+space combo untill it is off.

Good day and welcome to the community.
 
Does your spacebar show this icon: ?
 
If so, please try holding the Fn key and then tapping the spacebar.
If your spacebar doesn't have that icon, then, in my experience, you don't have a backlit keyboard.

Hi, I bought a Flex 2 from my local store 3 days ago. Although very happy with the product I couldn't help but notice 3 considerable flaws. 1 being the spongey keyboard, the other being the poor battery life and the biggest flaw being the huge amount of light visible through the back of the laptop at night. I can clearly make out the LCD screen. It's one huge ugly luminous rectangle that lights up the entire room. Is this normal? Is anyone else having the same problems? Is it a design flaw or is it a fault with my laptop? P.s: The laptop is white.

Hi everyone, I am very pleased with my Flex 2 overall, but I have noticed when displaying black colours the bottom left and right corners of the screen show some backlight bleed. It's just enough to be noticeable and if I pinch the screen edges near those corners it intensifies. Is this normal or should I consider a replacement? Just want to know if its a fault

Hello Lenovo Community!  I purchased a Lenovo Flex 2 14" Laptop last Saturday (6th of September 2014) and I noticed when using it at night time that there was a yellow tint coming from all corners. This yellow tint isn't really noticeable when on standard applications with a bright colour but when watching films or viewing dark images it is really noticeable. I returned the laptop to the store (PC World) and they happily provided me with a replacement, however the same problem is happening with the replacement which I got today. I have included a picture below which shows the tint when streaming a film on Netflix, as you can see it is really noticeable and not something I have seen with any other Laptops I have purchased. The same yellow tint appears on dark images or applications, not just on Netflix.  Has anyone else expierenced a problem like this before? Is this expected? Or have I just been extremely unlucky with the two laptops I have been given? Thanks for any support/advice, Shane

I have a new HP Envy 14 Ultrabook.  It has a backlit keyboard.  I know many people like that "feature", but I don't.  I assumed it would be easy to turn off the light in the control panel (e.g., in the device's settings), but there is no option.  I can hit the F5 key to turn off the general lighting, but then that F5 key glows blindingly bright all the time.  I want to either completely disable the keyboard backlights, or equivalently set the light level to be dim to the point of being completely off.  But I can't find any setting to do that in the power options, device properties, etc.  Nor has this question been satisfactorily answered in any other forums that I could find.  Thanks in advance for your help.

 I know this has started to be covered already but the discussion was never finished. This was the original post: I have discovered that the keyboard backlighting won't turn off. The backlight on/off key is labeled as F5. I press it, but nothing happens. I've also tried pressing fn+f5, but that doesn't do anything either. I had been leaving the backlight on, but now I want it to only be on when I press the f5 key. Why won't the backlight turn off? I am having the exact same issue. I followed the instrustions of the helper, which were: Can you please get to the Desktop Screen of Windows by pressing the Windows Key and ?D? keys together and then press the F5 key? As you might know, F5 is used for refreshing a Window/Page. Do you see the Desktop Icons getting refreshed? This is to make sure that the F5 key is working or not?If you got confused with that suggestion, please open MS Word and then press the keys ?Fn? and ?F5? together and let me know whether you get the ?Find and replace? Window? I didn't understand the first part, but the second part I got. I opened Word and pressed Fn and F5 together and can confirm that the 'Find and Replace window appeared. However, I have no idea what to do from here or how to fix the problem, please help me. Also bear in mind please that I am 16 years old and know pretty much nothing about computers. Also, I only got this laptop for Christmas 2015 and am not very familiar with everything yet.

And yours should be in the BIOS setup where you can turn on the numlock by default. You will have to look through all the BIOS options to see if you have that option listed in there. But if you looked through the complete BIOS settings and find none then it most likely means there isn't a option to set it by default.

Hi All,
I recently got an Inspiron 15-5559 Signature edition from the Microsoft Store. I've been trying to turn off the backlight on the keyboard but none of the methods allowed me to do so.
I've tried pressing Fn+F10, as well as just F10 while the Fn key is locked.
I have also installed Quickset but that isn't working either. The slider in Windows Mobility Center moves but it doesn't change the backlight brightness at all. 
Lastly, changing the keyboard illumination settings in BIOS doesn't change the backlit levels either.

Any ideas on how to get it to disable? Thanks

Answer:Auto turn off backlight keyboard T430

Hi,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
I would like to inform you that as of now, there is no such settings available to turn off the backlit keyboard after a certain period of inactivity. The backlight automatically turns completely off only when the screen goes off or when the machine goes to sleep. I personally think that what you have suggested would be an incredibly useful one and our engineers will take it as a great suggestion to implement the same.
 
Best regards,
Mithun.

Answer:T440p turn on keyboard backlight at startup automatically

I've seen this asked here several times, and the answer, as I recall from Lenovo staff, is "no".  It's a physical switch toggle with the Fn key and there isn't any software to substitute for that.

Hello, As the Title suggests, I am not able to turn on my Lenovo Yoga 2 13.When I try to turn on the Laptop, the White Light on the power button comes up for 6 Seconds and then goes off. Keyboard lights do not turn on, & the same effect with pressing the Novo recovery key.The battery does charge (The lights change according to the charge levels.) Things that I have tried so far: 1) Remove the power cable and press the power button for 30 Seconds, 60 Seconds, & 90 Seconds. No Effect. 2) Open up the backside, remove the battery cable (and battery), remove the power cable, and power discharge by pressing the power button. Turn on the laptop using just the Power cable. No Effect. 3) Remove the heatsink, clean it and then reapply the Thermal paste. No Effect. 4) Remove the hard disk and then try turning on. No Effect.  Despite trying all these steps, the effect is still the same. I honestly do not ahve any idea what to do now. Can anyone suggest something?  Any help would be appreciated!Thank You!

It appears that the backlight on the keyboard of the T450s times out after a minute or so and turns off.  I can then turn it back on by pressing FN + Space but it's extremely annoying to have to keep doing this.  I am not seeing anywhere in the bios or lenovo settings where I can have the keyboard backlight stay on always unless I manually turn it off.

Hi I have used Lenovo laptops in my company and based on my good experience I bought U41-70 for personal use. But this premium laptop changed my views and confidence in lenovo. First I got a defective piece with LCD issues. Luckily the lenovo exclusive store owner was kind enough to replace it within next day while warraty guys said that they would take weeks. Now the second piece is having keyboard backlight issue which i noticed a few days after. It is not switching off. I have tried with lenovo settings also. It dosen't switch off and this irritates me. Lenovo does not provide onsite warranty also. This is too much pain for a new customer. I don't want to waste time again in travelling to lenovo service centers again. I hope somene has a solution for backlight issue in this forum.  Thanks in advance.

Does your unit have that feature included? Check while rebooting if all keys light up. If yes, then you have the backlighted keyboard. If not, then the feature is not included in your unit.

Hi all, I've had my Lenovo ideaPad Z500 Touch for 2 years already, and this is the first time my KEYBOARD BACKLIGHT has stopped working. I am using Windows 8.1 (always updated) on a 64-bit OS. There has been no trauma to the device prior to the disfunction, however I did recently install CCleaner to my laptop to speed up the starting time (which may or may not have anything to do with the disfunction, but I am bookmarking it as a possibility since before installation my keyboard backlight was working just fine). Around the same time I also recently updatedWindows Malicious Software Removal Tool for Windows 8, 8.1 and Windows Server 2012, 2012 R2 x64 Edition - March 2015 (KB890830) upon recommendation from Windows Update, prior to which there was also nothing wrong with my keyboard backlight. (1) I have tried the Fn+SpaceBar option (as I usually do to toggle on/off when I'm doing work), but the backlight still does not turn on.(2) I have tried reinstalling Lenovo Energy Management (as has been recommended in previous posts), but it still does not work even after restarting. Since the last post on this was some time ago (last one on 2nd January 2014 with solutions that do not work for me), I would really appreciate it if anyone could help me on this issue. Thank you so much,

Hi all. So 2 days ago I was using the laptop for some course work, I then went asleep for maybe 2 hours and when I woke up I was unable to use the touchpad or kyboard. Now I had this issue before but it seemed to fix itself after a day or two. So far I have reset the computer while keeping all my own files, updated, deleted, reinstalled the drivers multiple times, removed the keypad to ensure the ribbon wasn't loose etc etc. I have since been able to get the touchpad to work by messing with the drivers but the keyboard remains the same. I oticed I am able to use it when either the laptop is held at an angle or if the screen if opened up almost flat. I'm guessing this is a driver issue but I can't for the life of me figure out how to resolve this. The laptop is a few years old so no warranty. I've done a lot of reading online about this issue and it seems many people have had the same problem but no posts gave me any real solution. Any help is very much appreciated. I relly don't know what to do now.

I have been in the market for a new laptop and decided to go with the Lenovo Flex 3 (which I didn't even know existed until a few days ago). It is so new that the only place that actually sells it is Lenovo.com. I got the one with the highest specs on sale. If you look on Flex 3 (15") | Affordable, Thin, & Light Multimode Laptop| Lenovo US you will notice something strange though. The keyboard for the i7 model is "Backlight French-English". None of the other ones are like that. The others all say "Backlight English".
I asked someone at Lenovo what that meant because I was concerned that it wasn't in QWERTY format. They said (and im not sure I believe them) that it only meant that some of the keys have French characters underneath them. The keys should be in the same spot. When I looked up images of French-English keyboards, a lot of them have 2 characters on EVERY key. It looks like the keyboard can either be in French or English mode, but it also looks confusing because the characters are the same size.
I asked Lenovo why the heck they would make 1 model that comes with a weird keyboard and every other model doesn't, and they didn't have an answer. I haven't received the laptop yet but im a little nervous as to what to expect. I love the specs and the design of the laptop, but if the keyboard is a jumbled mess of characters then I may regret my purchase. I don't look at the keyboard to type, but I still feel like it could be very confusing.

Answer:Lenovo Flex 3 keyboard is weird

If you'd like to see the keyboard up close, here is an image of what Lenovo does with French-English Keyboards. This is NOT a photo of the Flex 3, but of an older model laptop that they used a French-English keyboard. It may give you an idea of what one might look like. It basically makes it easier to enter French accent characters.

I just purchased a Lenovo Y50 UHD about a week ago, and the keyboard has been really bugging me. All the keys in the near vicinity of the 'G' and 'H' key in the center of the keyboard for some reason trigger a weird flex/trampoline style effect, which is very noticeable compared to keys near the edge of the keyboard (Tab, Q, number pad, etc.) I'm not sure if this is something that is prevalent in all models of the Y50 or Y50 UHD so it'd be great if i got some feedback from other owners. I'm definitely considering returning if this is a common problem. Thanks.

Hi everybody I am new in this forum. I have a new Flex 2 14 since some days and I am trying to figure out how the keyboard works. I used to work with one Mac and typing characters was pretty easy.. what appears just on the keys ti will be typed when I write. Now with my new  Flex 2 it doesn't seem to work like that anymore. I have some blue keys that work when the keyboard is set as English Canadian multilingual.. others that don't write at all what is written on them.. (example the blue key give me the " " when i type on it, and I found by chance how to type the " " character). Yesterday while I was writing an e-mail I needed to type the " " but I wasn't able to find the key equivalent on the keyboard so I had to use the touchscreen keyboard to get right my " ". Another time I was looking to insert the " [ " brackets but I had to change the language on my keyboard from " English Canadian" to "English US" to get them.Can I make my typing easier? Is there any way to get all the basic symbols on my keyboard without switching language or using the touchscreen keyboard?I would like to make faster writing as I was used to do with my Mac. I looked for instructions but nothing is specified. Thank you for your help

I noticed with the T500 I purchased there existed some keyboard flex. I got sort of used to it. One of the keys broke (my own doing). I replaced the keyboard from my old T60 (FRU No: 42T3209). Wow! What a huge difference. The old design is superior in every way. It does weigh a little more but the difference in feel and ruggedness make it a much better choice. I am going to order a second 42T3209 keyboard for the T60. If anyone gets annoyed with the keyboard flex, I suggest searching (ebay, parts surplus) for the 42T3209 keyboard. To Lenovo: Please consider the old keyboard design in future models. Thank you.

Recently the power button on my Lenovo flex 2 14D (Win8) broke and I have had to resort to using the 'backup' power button by poking it with a paper clip. I've googled around a bit and it seems as if you'd need to replace the motherboard to repair it, something I'd prefere to avoid.  Another thing that came up was that it would be possible to change some BIOS setting to make the computer turn on, wake from sleep/hibernation etc when the AC-cable is attached. However I have not been able to find any such setting anywhere (and I'm decently confident that not only have I not found it but that there is no such setting in the BIOS version that's on this computer). I'd appreciate some pointers on where to find it. If it doesn't exist: are there any other ways to achieve the same or a similar result?Thanks in advance

Answer:Lenovo Flex 3 1580 Keyboard problem

Hi 18jadietrich, 
 
Greetings. 
 
Try if you have the same issue using an external USB keyboard.
 
As the way described seems to be mechanical in nature and may need hardware servicing.
If your warranty is still active, best to call in technical support to avoid voiding warranty.
 
Users are not required to do manual troubleshooting other than checking if the W key is cleared from foreign materials causing this using compressed air cans.
 
Hope this help answer your query.

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
 
Water spilled into a laptop can cause a variety of problems as well as short  circuits.  It would be difficult to pin point exactly where your problems lie.  I suspect though that laptop isn't thoroughly dried out yet which maybe part of the problem.  I would suggest you open it up and let it continue to dry out, before proceeding further.  For your reference here is a link to your model's Hardware Maintenance Manual.......

Hi all,  I have lost the automatic keyboard backlight setting on my X1 Yoga 20FQ. I now only have three options; off, low and high. This was after a clean install of Windows 10 x64. All known drivers have been installed from the Lenovo support pages. Searching previous forum posts suggest installing ThinkPad Settings Dependency however this has now been widthdrawn and replace by Lenovo System Interface Foundation which I have installed. anyone got any suggestions? Thanks inadvance.

HELP. My keyboard and touchpad stopped working. Laptop is brand new. I checked Control Panel > Device Manager and system says both of them are working fine. Drivers are also updated.I`m typing with an external keyboard and mouse. Touchscreen and touch-keyboard work both fine. Is there anything I can check in the OS to verify what is going on? Maybe I turned off something. It's a mistery, laptop is brand new.Thanks in advance!!

Found the solution (customer support gave it to me):Hold the power button for 10-15 seconds and turn the laptop back on. The keyboard and touchpad worked again.
