Keyboard backlight

[ Edited ]

First of all I would like to start with what laptop I have, its the HP dv6-3220TX notebook

 

K glad we got that out of the way, now heres my issue, when opening the box I was reading through the instructions and apparently this laptop has a backlight keyboard which i thought was cool especially since im always on my laptop in the dark

anyhow, it says to turn back light on you just press the backlight button at the top by the action keys (f1-f12) so the backlight button is suppose to be next to the Prt Sc button correct? well mine doesnt have it, it has a pause button instead!! please help me, I really want to turn my keyboard backlight on as i always have to turn the light on when usiing my laptop in the dark as I cant see what im typing.

Hi,

 

Are you sure it has backlit keyboard ? If YES, hold down Fn key and hit Space bar.

Re: Keyboard backlight

I guess the question i should be asking, is there anyone out there that would know if the HP pavilion dv6-3220TX actually has a backlight for the keyboard??? im starting to wonder this video I found on youtube, he has exactly the same laptop as me, the only difference is he has the backlight button, and I have this stupid pause button

Re: Keyboard backlight

Hi,

 

I did ask you didn't I ? Most likely your machine does NOT have backlit keyboard. The one in the video is a different machine, not the same like yours. HP dv6 series has hundreds of models, not just ONE and they have many different configurations (the dv6-32xxaa group alone has probably around 50 models).

Re: Keyboard backlight

I didnt know there were HP laptops that look exactly like mine but different models, shows how little I know about computers lol.  So thanks for clearing that up for me, I now know that my model does not have a backlight.

 

Thankyou Smiley Happy

Re: Keyboard backlight

Hi HP Support,

 

My question is this... is it possible to purchase and install a keyboard that is backlit for this laptop?

 

Similarly I have bought an HP laptop (Zbook 15 G2) where the manual indicates this product should have a backlight for the keyboard. However, the function space bar does not work, nor does a few other key options I have read, such as f5, f12. I also do not have a key with the dot dot dot logo on it. Through trial and error, I have deduced that I do not have a backlit keyboard. Seems HP manuals would indicate that some models may not be equipped with this feature, although it is not clear why any higher end laptop would be equipped without this feature.
