    After working fine for a few weeks, the keyboard backlight suddenly doesn't work anymore. When I press F6 (more light) I get the on screen box, but it won't go up beyond 0 and a circle with a line through it is displayed below the indicator/status.

    Mine does that if there's too much ambient light. Try covering light sensor left of isight lens at same time adjusting.

    Glad it helped. Don't feel stupid. It's not readily apparent or explained.;)
