Please let me know the exact product model no. This link will help you to find the model no:

  • To check whether your particular model has a backlit keyboard, check the F5 key to see if the backlit keyboard key  is present.

  • To turn the keyboard backlight on or off, press the F5  key.

You could try one of the following methods depending on your model, to turn the backlit keyboard on or off.

  • If the spacebar has a keyboard icon on the left side, press and hold the Function key (Fn) and then tap the space bar one time.

  • Press the F12 key.

  • Press the F5 key.

  • Press the special key dedicated to turning the backlight on and off.

Keep me posted, how it goes!
