KEYBOARD BACK LIGHT

I have a Satellite A 665 and the system completed an upgrade yesterday and the keyboard back light is not on.  How do I turn on the Keyboard back light?

Re: KEYBOARD BACK LIGHT

See if there's a setting here.

 

   Start > All Programs > TOSHIBA > Utilities > HWSetup > Illumination tab

 

If you have any other questions, tell us which Satellite A665 you have.

Thank you for your response.  I followed the direction and there was not a tab for that.  My computer is a 6A533060K Satellite A665.

On p. 164 of your User's Guide, there is a picture of the HWSetup window with an Illumination tab.

Are you sure it's missing?

Hi,

 

Does the A665-6100 laptop have keyboard back light, as I followed the instructions from the previous thread and there is no illumination tag.

 

Thanks.

Sloppy, Sammie. Maybe this one?

 

Satellite A665-S6100X

 

The spec doesn't mention a backlit keyboard.

I agree spec does not mention backlit keyboard, but can Toshiba confirm if this is the case, as it could be there but disabled in this model. hence its just a case of enabling the function.

 

Thanks

Toshiba does not answer questions like that in this forum, Sammie. We are users just like you.

Re: KEYBOARD BACK LIGHT

I have the same problem--No Illumination Tax.  I know I have keyboard back light because I see it from time to time.  There is no Help on the HWSetup, so I can;t tell what version I have.  I would guess the problem is that I need to upgrade this program so I can get the tab.  What do I need to do.

 

Toshiba Satellite A665D-S6051

Part # PSAX0U-008004

S# 6A331239K

Re: KEYBOARD BACK LIGHT

Somebody else had the same issue as you an update zapped their backlight.

 

The Z key will have a pic of a keyboard on it if you have a BL keyboard.

 

Also check the BIOS settings in the power tab.

Re: KEYBOARD BACK LIGHT

I'm trying to figure out how to turn on my backlight too. Under the "utlities" as one answer said, I don't have an "illumination tab".

 

My "z" key doesn't have anything else on it.

 

My computer is to have: 

LCD009615.6" 1366X768 TruBrite LED backlit LCD

 

 

When I went to the Help page it told me to enter my serial number and model number, but it says it's invalid. Both the box & the computer say the same thing.

Re: KEYBOARD BACK LIGHT

LCD009615.6" 1366X768 TruBrite LED backlit LCD

 

That is the p/n of the LCD (Liquid Crystal Display)

1366 x 768 is the resolution

15.6 is the diagonal distance

LED says the backlight is a Light Emitting Diodes rather than a CFL (Compact Florescent Lamp)

 

 

This is not a Backlit Keyboard.
