HP ENVY 15-u010dx x360 Convertible Laptop Backlit Keyboard Not working

I just bought a brand new HP ENVY 15-u010dx x360 Convertible Laptop today and according to the specs it says that the laptop has a backlit keyboard when you press the F5 button (or fn F5.  F5 buttn has the light label on it).  However this does not work.  I am not sure if it is a hardware failure or if there is some magical keys that I need to press but it is not working.  Here is the link from BestBuy that I bought it from.  it says specifically there that it has a backlit keybaord.

Thank you very much for your help..  I did see that but it still wasnt working.  I did however just go back to bestbuy and get a replacement laptop.  Now the keyboard works just fine..  Apparently the one I had was defective.  Thanks again.
