Re: backlit keyboard not working


Welcome to HP Forums, this is a great place to get support, find answers and tips,
Thank you for posting your query, I'll be more than glad to help you out :)

As I understand the backlit keyboard doesn't work,

I'll be happy to help, however, I need a few more details to provide an accurate solution:


When was the last time it worked? (as certain models don't have a backlit: Click here for info)

Have you installed any updates or made any hardware changes?


Please reply for further assistance.
I hope you have a good day ahead,
And Feel free to ask your queries as this forum has some of the best people in the world available and ready to help.

It never worked. I replaced the HDD to the SSD.

Re: backlit keyboard not working



I thank you for the reply.


I recommend you the following step and check if that helps.


  • Press and hold the “fn” key and then press “F5” key and check if that turns on the back light.


Let me know for more.


Happy posting.
