250 G5 keyboard backlit

HP 250 G5 Notebook PC
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello. What about keyboard backlit on this machine? I cannot find any key or setting for backliting keys on keyboard. Even Power button is not lighting and when display power off I even don't know if notebook is ON or in some sleep mode/hybernation.

 

Whats wrong? New purchased NTB with Win10 Home 64bit preinstalled. Nothing on keyboard system settings. Nothing anywhere.

 

Thank you, Martin

Please try to see if you can find this icon Capture.PNGin your keyboard.  Normally its the F3 or F5 key. 

Press that key with the FN keyboard together will let you turn on or off the backlit.

 

If you don't see that icon on your keyboard, that means your laptop do not have this keyboard backlit function.

I cannot find a reference to this computer having a backlit keyboard nor can I find a reference to the option being available for this series.

Yes you're right. I also cannot find any information about the keypad backlight on this model NTB. Somehow I understand this function as the very basic function with NTB and I didn't think it could be even mobile PC without illuminated keys (not fully backlit keyboard), so I didn't find this information before purchase. It is a little bit strange solution :( Solved :'(

I bought one yesterday and I'm quite dissapointed to discover that it doesn't have a keyboard backlight or any lighting whatsoever!
