Answer: Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 15D In Serious Need of Backlit Keyboard

I just purchased a flex 15D a noticed that upon start up, there's lighting behind the keyboard, and (being new to PC laptops) it took me two nights to figure out that the only way to turn it on is Fn+space.

 I have a Lenovo Flex 2-15 that doesn't have a backlit keyboard. I know that the keybord can be taken off, so can the non-backlit keyboard be replaced by a backlit version. I would have thought it would be possible as someone could request a backlit keyboard part for their laptop maybe? Would the process void the warranty and where can I buy the backlit keyboard replacement?

Hi! I've got Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13 Silver (https://www.alza.cz/EN/lenovo-ideapad-yoga-13-silver-d375124.htm), and while I am quite content with the device, my keyboard stopped working. I was wondering whether any of you might know and suggest an online reseller (official or otherwise), where I could get hold of a replacement keyboard. Now, I suppose backlit keyboard versions of newer Yoga laptops will not work I guess, will they? From what I have read Yoga 13 Silver does not have the slot required for backlit, but aside that, will the keyboard function and will it fit (dimension-wise)? If so, what is the voltage and current required? Would soldering a small battery to the backlit cable be a good idea (I accept the fact that I wouldn't be able to regulate it)? Thank you in advance!ck

Hi tachilla, 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
Checking the general specification for IdeaPad 300 (15'') Platform Speci?cations here, backlit keyboard features is not available to similar model types 80Q7 as the motherboard does not offer power connection for the keyboard backlit as shown from the hardware manual FRU keyboard list pages 78-81.
 
No power connection portSample keyboard with backlit cable
 
You can follow the keyboard guide here on page 40-41 of the hardware manual to physical check on your motherboard model as it may not likely be compatible with a backlighted keyboard making it not possible to upgrade.
 
Hope this helps answer your query.

hi Cosmin90,
 
    I checked you computer's reference manual
The Backlit Keyboard is an Optional / Customized to Order feature.

You can also send me your Serial number through the Private message and i can check your computer's components.
 
"Normally when you press the power button on your computer. it will do a light check on the keyboard maybe flash the light for few seconds and then turn off and wait for windows"
 
Hope this helps,

I recently purchased this laptop and did not spend any time playing on the keyboard prior to the purchase.  I am now regretting this purchase as I cannot understand nor adapt to the right shift key not being in the standard location. Why would Lenovo design a keyboard that would not be conducive to touch typing? I cannot seem to change my 45 years of touch typing experience to accomadate this major change.  It makes no sense.  Is anyone else having this issue and what if anything can be done about it?

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.

Hello all, I would like to ask if it is possible to add a backlit keyboard (Lenovo official), on my ideapad s500. There is no connector on the motherboard for the second cable which has the keyboard i bought. Thank you.

Answer:Backlit keyboard on ideapad s500

hi Manos_s500,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
Looking at page 69-72 of the S500 hardware maintenance manual, this unit doesn't use a non-backlit type keyboard.
 
Take note that for a backlit keyboard to work, the following must be met:
1. Compatible backlit-type keyboard
    - Sample item
 
2. The motherboard must have a keyboard power connector (for the backlight).
    - Link to image
    - Link to image
 
If one of the above is missing, then the backlights won't work.
 
However, if you have experience in laptop disassembly and taken out lots of keyboards then you may want to check this article on how to make a backlight keyboard (mod).
 
Note:
The procedure requires you to open up the machine and depending on the place where you purchased the unit, some stores put a warranty sticker on the screw slots so any signs of tear will automatically void the warranty so if this isn't applicable to you then you can give it a shot.
 
 
Let me know if this works for you.
 
Regards

I bought this Lenovo instead of an Asus, despite a somewhat large price difference, because this computer is supposed to have a backlit keyboard. I got my computer in the mail today and I haven't been able to figure out how to turn the keyboard backlight on. The markings on the keyboard indicate that Fn+Space should turn this feature on. Is there something else that I need to do the first time to turn it on or is this something that I need to take up with Lenovo? Thanks!

After updating to windows 10 I noticed that the keyboard backlit didn't turn on no matter if I was pressing FN+Space bar. After several months of trying to solve this problem I came in contact with Microsoft tech support and I was told that my system doesn't seem to be compatibe with Windows 10 and I should downgrade back to Windows 8 in order to solve this problem. After doing that and installing many updates and drivers it still doesn't work. It would be greatly appreciated if someone can help.

I bought this lenovo u41-70 laptop 6 days ago. The i5, gt 920m and 256ssd version one. I thought that it might not have a backlit keyboard while buying it but today i was watching some reviews on it and surprisingly those one has the backlit keyboard. I am curious why mine one doesn't?

Answer:Lenovo U41-70 no backlit keyboard

hi masabbin,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
Looking at the keyboard parts (see page 68-71 of the hardware maintenance manual), the U41-70 may come with a normal or backlit type keyboard.
 
You can easily spot a keyboard with a backiit feature if there's a "crown" like logo on the space bar and if the keyboard lights up on boot-up. You can also manually toggle the keyboard backlights by pressing Fn+Space.
 
 
 
Since your keyboard doesn't have the "crown" like on the spacebar, this means that this unit doesn't have a backlit type keyboard.
 
If you specifically asked / ordered a U41-70 with a backlit keyboard then you may need to contact the place of purchase  as you definitely received the wrong model (and also to check if it's still possible to exchange the unit).
 
 
Hope this information helps.
 
Regards

Not forgivable since they did the EXACT same thing with the Y40-70 release - stated it had a backlit keyboard standard as it's features and it took 2 months for them to remove that from their website.  Now with the Y40-80 - they highlight the backlit keyboard AGAIN as a standard feature, and AGAIN it's not found on any of them.   Whoever is in charge of product descriptions on the Lenovo website should be terminated.  Not once, but TWICE with the same model system telling customers it has a backlit keyboard when it does not.   Shameful.

Just to make sure, did you press the Fn key and spacebar?

After waiting a very long time (approx. 10 hours) I opened the lid and it started up again. I can close lid and the laptop will continue to work when I open it again, however if I shut it down the problem happens again. I have run lenovo diagnostics on the hardware and software and there appears to be no issue with things such as the mother board. Please could someone tell me how to fix this.Many thanks

Reboot thereafter. Note: it will take some time to finish the above process.

It seemed to be after the bios update, I'm currently doing a factory restore, if it fails where do I move from here?

My Lenovo Ideapad Flex laptop does not switch on when I press the power button.  It was working till this morning, when I switched it off (via an operating system shut down in Windows 8.1). When I tried to turn it on an hour later, I found that pushing the power button has no effect at all.  I tried pushing the novo button.  In this case the laptop does turn on and shows the "lenovo" welcome screen for a few seconds.  However, it promptly switches off again.  The symptoms do not depend on the laptop being connceted to power: they are exactly the same in the two cases. I have a Lenovo warranty, and I tried calling them, but due to a severe weather condition at their service station, they said they are unable to respond promptly.  In the meantime, is there anything I ccan do on my end to fix this?

Answer:Lenovo Ideapad Flex does not switch on

There's a chance the power button itself is broken and is turning the machine off as soon as you turn it on with the other button.
 
Try mashing it/wiggling it?

Answer:Lenovo Y40-80 Backlit Keyboard Replacement

hi Moaz,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
I looked into the Y40 specifications sheet and this model doesn't use a backlit type keyboard -- this may explain why you're not able to see any compatible backlit keyboard (technically you will need the top cover since the keyboard is embedded onto it).
 
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.
 
 
Regards

HiI have a z500 laptop without a keyboard backlit.I want to buy a backlit keyboard, how do I install it?Is there such a possibility? What do I need to do this?

Answer:Lenovo z500 backlit keyboard

hi Hensem,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
Changing the stock non-backlit keyboard to a backlit one is definitely possible.
 
To change it:
1. You will need a compatible Z500 backlit keyboard (see page 102-109 of the hardware maintenance manual)
    - doing a google search, this item should work as it bares the Sunrex brand with a part #: 25206567
    - Link to picture
 
2. In removing/replacing the keyboard, you can follow page 33-35 of the hardware maintenance manual or see this video disassembly guide (see FRU Videos) as a reference.
 
Edit: Added the link for the keyboard 
 
Regards

Hello, I have had the laptop for nearly a year, still under warranty and, today, some keys stopped working on the keyboard, more concretly: 5 6 F1 F2 ? '  and CTRL (LEFT) keys (written with the touchscreen). The last time it worked I was using it in class taking some notes and those aforementioned keys were working. Once I finished, packed the laptop into the cover, and into the bag. ten minutes later I took it out in the library and they did not work.No water spilling had occurred (it was dry and the bag was dry too). And also there were no hits to the terminal. They just seemed to stop working, the pressure input feels pretty the same, so they are not stuck by any material underneath. I tried reinstalling the drives (through the hardware management), checked all options in keyboard assesment....tried with safe mode, still do not work.  Could it be some defect and should call for a replacement? Thanks beforehand.

Dear Experts, I was noticing this problem just after my warranty is expired.  My Lenovo Ideapad flex 15 shuts down exactly in every 30 minutes. Here are some clues.Shutdown even when it is in bios, it is not a driver problem. Reset the bios to default but no outcome.Did comprehensive hardware test using Lenovo Solution Center but not showing any issue.All hardware temperature is normal. There was some dust in CPU fan, causing problem to run it smoothly. Removed the dust, now it is running smoothly. But still, I am having this problem.Removed the BIOS battery for the whole night, no outcome.If I put the laptop in sleep(before 30 min) and wake up immediately, I don't see this problem. I suspect this is some hardware or bios firmware issue (i.e probably some internal timer is shutting down laptop and putting the laptop into sleep may reinitialize the timer). Any idea how to resolve this problem? As another try, I want to flash the bios firmware, but I can't find any link in lenovo support center to get bios firmware for Lenovo Ideapad Flex 15.  Any help is highly appreciated. My BIOS version: 8ACN34WW Thanks/Babu

Welcome to the Forums Bevvy! 
 
Press Windows+X.
- Select Device Manager.
- Find the Touchscreen driver under Mice and Other Pointing Devices>USB Touchscreen Controller(A111).  You're going to uninstall this and check the box that says "Delete the driver software for this device".  Don't worry, it won't blow up your computer.
- Restart your computer.
- Re-open the Device Manager, and confirm that the Touchscreen is now listed under Human Interface Devices.

Hello,
 
I was just wondering, as the title says, if it's possible to buy a backlit keyboard from Lenovo or any other place for my laptop? If not possible to buy from Lenovo directly, any other suggestions?
 
I bought a Lenovo Yoga 500-14IBD (14" screen, to confirm) and I am pretty happy with it for the amount it cost, but ideally it would also have a backlit keyboard. But as this isn't a flag ship or even premium device to an extent this feature is not present - even though backlit keyboards in my opinion shouldn't just be exclusively found in premium devices.
 
I'm not big on customising computers more than just simple things like upgrading the RAM but I would definitely consider installing a backlit keyboard in this laptop if the installation wasn't too difficult and the keyboard itself isn't too expensive.
 
Thanks,

Answer:Y500 - Buy a Backlit Keyboard from Lenovo or Anyon...

Unfortunately, each keyboard is usually made for that specific build line. Unless the Yoga 500 14 has a backlit keyboard as an option, you'll be likely unable to find one, unless someone modifies them (which in itself is very difficult due to the thin profile of keyboards nowadays).

When I enter my product serial at http://support.lenovo.com/ I cant use either email or chat because for some reason those options are not available for my product!I did try to call them, but they don't understand anything. No technical knowledge. So my last option was to register for this forum and hope someone can help me. (Even the forum didn't seem to be updated as there was no section for my model, ideapad 700, only up to 500) Anyway my question is that my backlit keyboard is not working for my Lenovo 700 15ISKYes I fully understand I have to activate it by Fn + Spacebar. But nothing happens. My spacebar has the symbol for backlit keyboard. I was confused at first because I've read that some configurations of Ideapad 700 15ISK does not have backlit keyboard. My Machine Type Model: 80RU001KMX I have tried updating drivers, bios and windows 10.

The issue has already solved, just writing for thos who might have the same issue. One day when I turned the notebook on, the keyboard and touchpad did not work. Restarting ddi not help.The only thing I put my attention that time was the battery is almost discharged, so I turned the notebook off, closed the lid, and plugged it in. The next day I turned it on, and everything was working.  Another idea on why it happened: when the notebook lid opens and closes, it might switch to tablet mode, so that the keyboad and touchpad are off.

I have a year old Lenovo Ideapad Flex 4-1470 laptop.  The computer works perfectly, however the touch screen does not work all the time.  Some of the keys on the keyboard won't work, some areas of the screen do not register my finger everytime, etc.  I took it to the place of purchase (Office Max) and they ran a diagnostic check that came up perfect... the computer is working like it should.  I have a warranty on the computer for 3 years trough SquareTrade.  I don't use the touch screen really at all (only use it because it's there), but I'm annoyed that it doesn't work correctly because it's only a year old.  Any suggestions on a fix?  I can't find a calibration reset for the touch screen or any kind of up system reboot.  Any help will be appreciated.
