How can I reconnect the light-wire to back-lit keyboard of my Lenovo flex 2?

Question: How can I reconnect the light-wire to back-lit keyboard of my Lenovo flex 2?

As you see an end of the wire is connected to laptop circuit but the other one is not connected to keyboard body. In fact, I don't know where it must be connected. Check out further image below : http://i68.tinypic.com/fn8my1.jpghttp://i64.tinypic.com/219cvm8.jpghttp://i66.tinypic.com/30kf2wp.jpg

Preferred Solution: How can I reconnect the light-wire to back-lit keyboard of my Lenovo flex 2?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

As you know there is a wire between laptop's motherboard and its keyboard for lighting. one end is properly connected to motherboard but the other one is not connected to keyboard body. In fact, I don't know "where" it must be connected. On keyboard body only there is a black area for that. Check out further image below:https://i.imgsafe.org/caecd1e.jpghttps://i.imgsafe.org/fe25a92.jpghttps://i.imgsafe.org/6581216.jpghttps://i.imgsafe.org/b30619c.jpg

Hi, the backlight on my keyboard(Z500 non-touch screen) has stopped working in the past 24hrs I have looked at the other solutions to fix this problem, like pressing fn + space, which i have spammed 10's of times to jump start it, and i ahve also reinstalled lenovo energy management however that also didnt work. i have also turned it off and on again several times, poked t with a stick and threatened it( to throw it out the window) but still didnt work. The back light has been working perfectly well uptil now. It did light up for about 2 seconds when i was in the middle of my university work, however i dont think they would be related. The last time i had the light working was when i was on the train and i had to quickly shut the laptop down while it was restarting as i didnt reliase I had arrived at my stop, however i have done that a few times before without any side effects. Any ideas how it happened or to try and fix it??

Hello! I bought a Lenovo Y50 UHD laptop about 3 weeks ago. So far I have but one problem (besides 48hz...), and that is that I can notice some keyboard flex around the keys "5" and "4" on the number pad and around "." and ",". My roommate also got this laptop and on his laptop, there is no noticable keyboard flex anywhere on the keyboard. Is there anything I can do to fix this or is there a way that something (customer service or computer techs like Geek Squad) that can fix this?

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.

Hello, I have a Lenovo flex 2 14 coming in from France which is fine except it comes with an azerty keyboard. Basically what I want to know is if I buy lets say the flex 15 keyboard, would the size of the keys measure to be the same size as the flex 14 keys (for example the A key on the flex 14 and the A key on the flex 15 will they be the same measurements and would the key fit?). I also want to know if I bought the older flex 14 keyboard if that would fit in the flex 2 14. thanks for any answers.

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.

Answer:Dear Lenovo, keyboard flex ...

I called Lenovo complaining about the same issue on my W500. The first person turned me down but the second rep ordered me a stronger keyboard, shipped next day air, 100% free-of-charge.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.......

Hallo, i have a bug: when i try to switch off the sound using special funktion sensor button it switches off the keyboard back light instead of the sound but sometimes it works and turns the soung off but then the keyboard back light is off and i have no idea how to turn it on back. any idea why and what should i do now?

Answer:How to turn keyboard back light off on my Satellite P775-11E?

Have a look in the Toshiba HWSetup utility (Start menu->Programs->Toshiba->Utilities), you should find an option to enable/disable the keyboard backlight.

You may also want to try reinstalling or updating the Toshiba Value Added Package and update the BIOS.

Hi all,This is my first post.I tried to find my problem with my laptop but i did not find anything similar.The story:Several months ago the hinges of my laptop started to slacken. After this (warranty period expired) i opened the pc and repaired them with stronger screws. In the same time the lcd screen started to flicker. I had to move or press it to obtain the correct colours or light. So i decided to disassemble it and try to find the fault.Unfortunalely during this operation tpouching the pcb (in the place were written "do not touch!) the screen bacame black. Using a light in the back i can see everything, so it meens that there is no more back light.Using an external monitor the video is perfect.My qyuestion:I am quite sure i have to replace the LCD that was defective (i knew i had to do but i attempted to fix it temporarily) but now i am afraid i broke something in the main PCB.Do you think a simple replacement will resolve? Do i have to control something else than the screen?I apologize for my english, but i hope i have been able to be understood.Thanx all.

Answer:Lenovo Flex 2 14 model 20404, keyboard backlighting problem

For keyboard backlight sticker, is there a word 'optional'? I learn that if the space bar does not have a light icon, then there is no backlight. That's what I see from my Flex 2-15

Hi guys,I recently bought a lenovo Flex 2 -14" one. It's been almost two weeks now, and I suddenly face this problem.The keyboard and touchpad together keeps getting disconnected at times. The backlight also keeps blinking when turned on. During that time, I am not able to receive any response via the touchpad and keyboard. It's like a loose connection.

Answer:Lenovo flex 2 -14 keyboard and touchpad giving irregular response

Hello, looks like i found the solution! I recently came across another post in this forum, where the user had reported his g5050 showing similar symptoms like mine. A lenovo admin had suggested that it might be due to excess charge stored on the laptop, causing the whole f the keyboard and the touchpad to act like its loosely connected. Solution:As soon as i find my laptop fully charged, immediatley i took off the power plug going into the laptop!And now, its all working fine!

I have a LeNovo Flex 3 1480 [80R3] for about a year with zero problems. The only modded thing is a Sandisk 480gb SSD drive, with a Windows 10 installation from scratch, installed in the very first day I bought this machine. I was running Windows 10 version 1607 normally, and really enjoying this machine, but since last week when I was booting up, the machine freezed at bootscreen (the one with the lenovo logo) and then restarted showing the message "Preparing Automatic Repair" that took almost a whole day to pass. The repair never happened and I had to use the option to reset windows maintaining my personal files. After this everytime I boot up, windows 10 take up to 10 minutes to boot, and my keyboard and touchpad won't work, leaving me with only the touchscreen option. I've been through a lot of different solutions attempts:- Upgraded BIOS to the latest version (Lenovo colored logo at bootscreen)- Uninstalled KB and Touchpad drivers manually and reinstalled with Lenovo provided drivers, and also repeated the procedure with Windows Update drivers.- Disabled the fast startup option- Done the 15s procedure with the power button- Deattached the battery plug for some minutes and reattached- Checked (unplug and replug) both KB and Touchpad flatwires- Reinstalled the latest Windows 10 version 1703 from scratch None of the solution mentioned above worked for me. KB works perfectly in BIOS, and even when booting up I can change de backlight settings usi...

Hello, My parents have owned a Lenovo laptop for a couple of years now. However, recently this issue showed up and I wondered whether there is a chance there is a solution to this problem which I could try myself, since the laptop its warranty already expired. If I recall correctly, the model of the laptop is the Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 2, running Windows 10. So here is the issue; the laptop has issues turning on. Oddly enough, it is not a very consistent issue. Eventually, the laptop does turn on. The problem is that this sometimes takes hours, other times the laptop appears to be able to boot instantly as it normally would. I have no idea what affects this. When pressing the power button, the keyboard backlight starts flashing. It does this until the laptop completely boots, and as I said, the amount of time this takes varies. I already tried looking for solutions on different forums, but they usually concern the issue where the keyboard backlight flashed and the laptop simply will not boot at all, which is not the case here, as it eventually does but often it takes a while.Other solutions suggested a certain amount of flashes meant a certain issue or failure. Problem here is that the amount of flashes seem to be random, so it is not as if it just keeps looping a certain amount of flashes as it varies. This leaves me puzzled as to what could be the culprit. I am not sure what to do, especially since I have not owned a Windows-based machine in a whi... Read more

Answer:Laptop has issues booting - keyboard flashing (Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 2)

Hi itsasin,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
Would you have the machine number or MTM to verify the model (you can also get from here)?
 
Isolating the point of failure may be necessary to determine if the delay on start up is a power issue or a boot problem.
Try removing the harddrive so we can test if the machine can power faster.
You can download the hardware manual from the support website for removal guide.
 
Update us how it goes.

Answer:Ideapad Z500 Keyboard back light - stopped working after Windows 10 upgrade

Update: I purchased a genuine second hand keyboard online fo 22.00 and the backlight is working perfectly. A good way to test the functionaility of your keyboard is to see if the light comes on during the boot-up. If it does not then it is either a loose connection or a faulty keyboard. It is worth opening up the keyboarg to see if there is a loose connection...see this video on how to do it, it very simple and will take you less than 5 minutes. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_lK4mKT_7gA If the connection are ok and you still do not see the back light working during the boot up, then I am afraid to say that you have a faulty keyboard. Don't waste you time like I did trying to get it to work...get a replacement!

My Flex 2-15 recently underwent a background update. Shortly thereafter the screen flickered maybe 6-7 times then the colors have been way off since. When the "blank screen" screensaver activates, everything looks purpleish red and doesn't completely blank the screen. It's almost impossible to tell the difference between black and red cards in Hearts, Euchre whatever.Could it be a driver issue with the update? Or was that just a coincidence and the screen is messed up? Or did a wire get pinched or broken?

I am using a lenovo y40-80. this laptop doesnt have a backlit keyboard.i was wondering if there is anyway i can change this basic keyboard with a backlit keyboard ??

Answer:No back-lit keyboard for Lenovo y40-80 (14" inch)

Hi hariharanath  , 
 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
For the Ideapad Y40-80 , it doesn't offer any parts available with a backlit keyboard. 
This would be checking specifically with the hardware specification and recommended parts list (specifications) . 
Same reason why it doesn't show any recommended backlit keyboard offered anywhere since that would be dependent on the motherboard connection for the back light. 
 
Similar to this thread , quoted :
"  In addition, for the backlit feature to work, the following must be met:
1. Compatible backlit-type keyboard
2. The motherboard must have a keyboard data & power connector (for backlight)
    - Link to picture
    - Link to picture
 
If one of the above is missing / not present, or not applicable then the backlit feature will not work. " 
Available Y series with optional backlit keyboard are Y50 and y70 .
 
Hope this helped you in your query.

Hi I've had the Dell XPS 8700 for over a year now and it's an excellent Desktop.
I've recently moved my tower to a new location and notice there is a solid orange light on all the time inside the PC, I believe it's on the motherboard... should I be worried this is on all the time? It's just I've never noticed it before.
Also on the back of the PC there is a solid green light, I'm guessing this is to just tell me the PC has Power.
I tried a google search but everyone with the orange light seems to have PC issues, my pc is working fine as far as I can tell.

Answer:Dell XPS 8700 Orange Light inside and Green Light on Back

LED on the motherboard will be on as long as the PC is plugged into a working outlet. It's perfectly normal and nothing to worry about.
If you unplug the PC from the wall and press/hold the power button for ~15 sec, that LED will go off. Again, perfectly normal...
Green LED says there's power to the PSU.

Hi,In a bit of pickle here, my little brother somehow took out my 'Escape' key (you can say there is no escape ) *Ahem*Anyway. I'm pretty sure he wasn't TRYING to take it out, but it did. The LapTopKey.com has no instructions for G510. I know there are many other AccuType keyboard laptops there, but still I don't want to take risks. Also because I have an algorithms exam tomorrow so I can't do as much searching as I want.
 
I haven't tried that hard in fear that I might break the clip or something. In one of my attempts, I put the key back in,but it wasn't coming back up properly, so I assume I put it back wrong. I put it together how it seemed natural but itdidn't work.
 
What I did was put the black and the white clip things together inside the key and tried to put the key back. That didn't work out so well, I struggled to put the key as well. Next, I tried putting the black clip first into the keyboard slotand tried putting the key in (which had the white clip inside). That didn't work as well.
 
For now, I'm putting this off until I know the correct way to avoid damaging the clips, I'm attaching the photos if thathelps. When I came back, the black clip was separate, and the white clip was still inside the Escape key, so I assume there's nothing wrong with the white clip.

My laptop was working fine yesterday, charging and powering on an off normally. It updated without my telling it to. When it was complete (since it said don't turn computer off until finished) I either just shut the lid or I shut it down when it was done. This morning when I wake up and try to turn it on it won't power up. Then I noticed that the power button was blinking, like it is in sleep mode, tried pressing 10 times then holding down power button for 30-60 seconds and still nothing. Next I saw that although the power is plugged in the battery light won't come on. I don't know if it is charging (it could be dead). I tried a bunch of different outlets and that isn't the issue. I also listened to the computer and there is a very soft high pichted noise that dissapears if you unplug it, and that when you hit the power button and it starts blinking, the sounds changes fom high to lower pitch and back again over and over. But no other sounds or fans kicking on or drive spinning. I am pretty sure it isn't the power cord but have no way of checking. And I can't remove the battery without voiding the warrenty. Anyone have any advice, besides calling to have Lenovo send me a box to send it back to Lenovo since it is only 4 months old and still under warrenty?

Answer:Lenovo Edge 15 laptop 80K9 battery light won't come on, power light blinks

Suggest you eliminate problem 1. Do you have spare power supply unit? Worth trying that first. Your battery may be in sleep mode and won't wake up as battery is drained and hence needs charging. 2. You can go to local retailer and suspect a good one (John Lewis) will let you charge it for 30 mins. Ideally go back to person you bought it from. 3. Once you are in use restore to go back to last working point. I have to telll you the support from Lenovo and Microsoft was very very very disappointing. I tried to even return the PC and swop for HP as mine is only 2 months old. However, the answer was send back to Lenovo. Hope you find a way to get it charged

Hi Wacky78900,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
I?m sorry to hear that your Y500 Laptop is not turning ON after playing game and turning OFF manually, I suggest you to perform the Flee-Power and check the issue. Below are the steps to check and resolve the issue:
 

Remove the battery and any other peripheral device connected to the computer.
Hold the power button for 10-15 seconds and then connect only the AC Adapter and try to turn ON the computer.

If the issue persists even after performing the Flee-Power and as the computer is in warranty, I would Strongly Suggest Calling Technical Support for Assistance. Click here to open a link where you can select the country and get the exact contact support number. I?m sure they will be a great help.
 
Do post us back for further queries.
 
Best Regards

Shiva Kumar

Question: Keyboard wire

Ok, I'm trying to replace half of the wiring on one keyboard with the other half from another keyboard. Both have five wires inside. The first has an all metal wire, green, red, yellow, and white, the other has pink, black, brown, white, and all metal. Which do i connect together? I'm assuming all metal goes to all metal, and maybe white to white?? Thanks.

Hi, I have a Lenovo Flex 2 14 which came with a British keyboard but I noticed you can take off the keyboard and swap it out for another one - you can find backlit versions, or a version with a different layout. I got a keyboard for it with Japanese hiragana on it, but the laptop doesn't seem to recognise any of the extra keys this keyboard comes with which have key codes not used by other languages. These keys include: | -? \ ??????the ????, ???? and ???? toggleI would have assumed this was to do with the fact that these are keys from a 106/109 key layout as opposed to the standard 102 key, so I replaced the keyboard driver with Microsoft's 106/109 key keyboard driver, but that hasn't had any effect - it still can't see these keys being pressed. The ??/?? ?? key works because it uses the same key code as the tilde on other keyboards, but that's all. My hypothesis for why this might not be possible to fix is that the ribbon connection between the keyboard and the motherboard could only support 102-key layouts in Europe, and therefore the only way to be able to use these extra input conversion keys without a different motherboard altogether would be to use an external USB keyboard. I may have just made up what I said about the motherboard though, so does anyone know if there's a driver I can use to solve this problem and be able to use the extra keys? I can't just use a key mapper like KeyTweak ...
