    Sounds defective... if under warranty i'd contact acer tech support.

    Hello,
    Which model do you own exactly?
    As I can see, [Fn]+[F9] decreases and [Fn]+[F10] increases the backlight of the keyboard but some models are not shipped with a backlit keyboard.

    HI GUYS, So recently my swift 3's keyboard's backlight stopped working out of a sudden and I started panicking and turns out all you gotta do is press the F8 button and it'll turn on again! There's an A and some light rays on the F8 button.

    It is Fn + F8 however mine would not work either. I went into BIOS and found FN key set to Media mode set it to Function Key and works great now.

    Try pressing only the backlight key (key with A) without pressing fn key.
