    My backlight on my Macbook Pro 2.2ghz (June 2007) is not completely dead, but it looks like its about to die. Can someone tell me how I can fix this or what the problem is?

    Also, would replacing the keyboard fix this? I never looked at the keyboard when opening up my mac, so I don't know if the lights are attached to it or not.

    I'm just mad because this problem started right after Apple Care expired in september.

    If I remember correctly you will need to replace the entire top case.

    I'm curious... how much did you use your keyboard backlight??? I was just wondering as I never use mine because i don't want it to die out in a few years when i actually might need it.... Thanks....

    I got it in September 2007 and I always had the lights automatically set by the ambient light sensor. So, it was typically on high at night.
