My keyboard no longer lights

My keyboard no longer turns upward. I have turned off accidentally. How to turn on my keyboard to the top?



Check with your system manufacturer support, their books online and ask
their forum (if any).

Many models have controls for the backlight keyboard in the BIOS - often
F2 as you start so watch the display. Some may have shortcuts keyboard or other control
it turn on or off.

Of course, there may be a hardware problem however check that the controls would be
the first step in best.

I hope this helps.

  • After turning on my wireless keyboard led green lights, then begins to blink, and then turns off. The batteries are fresh.

    After turning on my wireless keyboard led green lights, then begins to blink, and then turns off. The batteries are fresh.

    Possible explanation.  It is likely that batteries, so fresh, can be irregular in size.   The uncertain connection would therefore tend to lead to a failure to blink and you declare.   Read my thing...


  • JETech 2010 keyboard no longer works correctly!

    Keyboard no longer works. At least remove them and T keys do nothing. I have blue tooth, forgotten unit redefined and networks... Any other ideas please? Thanks in advance X

    Try the keyboard on another Mac or PC. If it still fails, you know the keyboard is broken. You can also try the keyboard when it is started in recovery as a basic test mode. That will tell you if the keyboard works well when a single copy of the operating system is running without all your installed applications.

    OS X: on OS X Recovery - Apple Support

    Select the option to browse the web to try the keyboard in Safari in recovery mode.

    If the device is 2010, you should seek to buy a new device, otherwise if it is new & still in warranty, return it to the store or the manufacturer.

  • Re: Satellite 2455-S3001 - LCD no longer lights

    I have a Satellite 2455-S3001 part #PS245U-074966. The lcd screen no longer lights upward.

    I can look at the screen and see the screen works (with a flashlight, I can see images on the screen). I want to solve this problem, but have never worked on display like this before problems. Before, I looked at this problem and what I've gathered, is that it might me a converter fl (forgive me if this is not correct, it's been over a year I did research).

    I would like a definitive answer and not one, perhaps, money is tighter than it used to be.

    When you say converter do you mean FL inverter. Do you have?
    In my view, FL inverter is faulty.
    Have you checked some online shops for a new game?

  • BlackBerry Smartphones shortcut keyboard no longer works

    I've updated my OS to V4.5.0, and now my voice mail shortcut keyboard no longer works. I have now the message "assign a speed dial key w." can anyone confirm this shortcut no longer exists or if it has been replaced by something else.

    Sometimes, I saw a simple reboot of the device to correct this.

    If still not, and then assign your voicemail at this speed dial button.

  • Sculpt Microsoft comfort keyboard no longer works correctly

    Several times a day my keyboard no longer meets all the keystrokes or sometimes double on strikes. I can type a sentence and find only the occasional shows on the screen or more characters I typed (e.g. "character" indicates "cacter" or "ccchaaraccterr"). At first, I thought it was the batteries in the keyboard, but have lost a few sets of batteries, I found that out the receiver to the USB port and plug it into another port works for maybe an hour or two, and then it happens again.  Putting the receiver into the original USB port solved the problem again. Removal of the receiver and put it back in the same port do not solve the problem.  Any ideas gratefully received.

    I suggest that you try the following and check if this solves the problem.

  • HP Pavilion DV6-3014TX no longer lights


    I have a HP pavilion dv6-3014TX.

    My brother has spread very little water on it. Now it no longer works.

    When I plug in the adapter, it used to be a white light flashes, indicating that the power is running. Now, this light is dead, what is the average power is not coming into the laptop.

    I tested the adapter, nothing wrong with it.

    I completely took apart my computer. I already did this time several before, dv6-3014TX has overheating problems and needs a lot of cleaning maintenance.

    The under keyboard was mainly wet. But noting appears to be damaged on the inside. I cut the water and back up my laptop. But same problem: the computer turns on, light still dead.

    I think the problem comes from the port where you plug in the adapter. It seems broken because of water poured around it.

    This can be changed very easily. But I can't find where to buy it.


    Looks like it's toast.

  • Mark this shortened Page keyboard no longer works

    For some reason, mark it this Page (control-D on Mac) no longer works. I hit him, and nothing happens. I know that the command-D in the Finder window works, because it is a duplicate of the file on that I hit command-D. But it is no more bookmarking pages. What is the problem. It worked the last time I made a bookmark (a week ago). No new added modules, nothing since then different makes. Just stopped working. I have to go to the menu and choose manually mark them this Page. Keyboard shortcut does not work.

    Can you try to access the Firefox in Mode safe mode to see if the problem persists or if it opens? You can follow the instructions below to start in this mode.

    • Go to help > restart with disabled modules
    • When Firefox closes and opens again, select start in Safe Mode

    If Firefox works great after the safe boot mode, then it is probably one of your extensions of misconduct. You can enable your add-ons on one until you find the extension in conflict.

    Replace old hard drive with an SSD.  Now some of the keys on the keyboard stopped working.  Ex 'e' and 'b' keys no longer work?  Any idea what could take place in the disc replacement?

    Probably nothing, it's probably a fluke. Try resetting the SMC and the PRAM by iMac Intel SCM and reset the PRAM. If this does not work, try a USB keyboard to test, if it works then your original keyboard has failed and must be replaced.

  • Satellite L30 shortcuts keyboard no longer work after upgrading XP it-> XP Pro


    I recently bought the Satellite L30 laptop computer with Windows XP preinstalled. I decided to upgrade to XP Professional and I did it by installation upgrade.
    Everything works fine, except for the Toshiba Hotkeys utility. A combination of keys Fn + function, but there is no picture (message) on the screen, and some do not work. The keys F1, F2, F3, F4, a F8 does not work for you. FN + Esc (silent) and F6 F7 (light) work quite ok. But still, even if a button work, the message is displayed.

    I did the same instance on Satellite A110 and everything worked well.

    I tried to reinstall the keyboard shortcut, but it is not possible. It is not listed in Add/Remove programs and the installation of TOOLSCD files crashes without message. In the event viewer, I can find information of Msiexec, syaing this config to access keys failed.
    The above behavior is the same when I restored it original XP installation there. Then of course, the shortcut keys work, but it is impossible to uninstall or reinstall.

    I tried to uninstall most of the Toshiba Utilities, but it did not help.

    Does anyone have an idea how to make keyboard shortcuts work on XP Pro (upgrade of the IT)?
    I have the only possibility would be to install XP Pro (have not yet tried), that is - anyone know how to install Office OneNote, on new installation? It is included in XP it and I can't find it in TOOLSCD, and I find it very useful, so I prefer to have on this machine.

    Thanks in advance for any ideas.

    Kind regards

    As far as I know there are two different models of laptops L30. The difference is apparent with the number PSLXXX. Are you sure that you downloaded the good stuff from Toshiba for your laptop model?

    BTW: when the laptop to factory settings, you are able to create own Tools & Utilities CD. This CD can be used for each installation of additional operating system. There is no difference between House of WXP or WXP Pro. All the drivers, tools, and utilities are the same. It is just important to all install in order good facilities.

    All that s!
