I somehow turned off the keyboard backlight. Is there a way to turn it back on?
Santa Rosa MBP.
maybe put the screen closer to the keyboard? i know it sounds weird but sometimes when the screen on my mid 2010 is far from the keyboard, it wont let me turn on the keyboard lights
Well the "F9" & "F10" Buttons Control The Keyboard Illumination. If Unresponsive, Hold Down the Fn Key While Using Them.
The F9 and F10 buttons make a window pop up that looks similar to the sound window and screen brightness window.
But below the bar graph is a zero with a line going through it. I'm thinking I somehow locked off the keyboard light.
Holding down the FN button with the F9 and F10 buttons makes the page shrink in size like Expose' does.
I must have been reading the wrong PDF Manual Then. My Apologies
I just now did the (press ctrl + option + shift + power button) and that seemed to work. After
rebooting, I hit the F8 key and all is well now. I don't understand why I had to do that though.
Could it be you were in a bright area? I know when mine is in a bright area it shuts the keyboard backlight off and give me the little access denied symbol if I try to change the brightness. I dont think there is a way to shut this off using the system, but I did find apps that can shut it off.
Well, when I placed it under the lamp, the keyboard light went off.
Then when I picked it up and placed it back on my lap, the light went back on.
Now I know what iFixit means by left and right ambient light sensor.
