    so i installed windows 7 on bootcamp, i noticed that the keyboard backlight keys to adjust the keyboard backlight arent working.
    then i switched over to the mac os, and it also stopped working there!

    whenever i press the keys, the transparent box shows up but the bars do not move, it is currently off, and it also has that crossed out circle symbol.

    please help.

    Maybe it's too bright.

    Hold you hand in front of the iSight camera and cover it and then try again with the keyboard brightness keys.

    If your surrounds are "too" bright the keyboard will not light up...

    Try putting your thumb over the ambient light sensor and adjust...
