Backlit Keyboard; Spacebar not lighting up

P3RS0NNP3RS0NN Posts: 28Member Enthusiast
I have an one month old Acer Spin 3 with the backlit keyboard feature. However, all my keys light up except for the space bar. Is it supposed to not light up? Can someone help me troubleshoot this?

    Google "backlit keyboard" images and you will see the norm for the spacebar backlight. 8^) Jack E/NJ

    Here's my KB in a darkened room. Mine has no outline around the spacebar either. What does that tell you about the image on the website? =) Jack E/NJ

    Good guess! Or possibly more than just one type of backlit KB was used in this particular model. This is not unusual. Jack E/NJ

    Thank you! I was going to return my new laptop because on the official Acer website all of the keys lit up (Including spacebar) but I guess they lied. :anguished: You are a lifesaver :+1: :smile:

    P3RSONN>>>official Acer website all of the keys lit up (Including spacebar) >>>

    Do you have a link to the website that claimed this for the Spin 3? Jack E/NJ

    Thanks. You gotta click on the keyboard in the ad (the little + sign greenie) to actually see what the backlit keyboard looks like when lit up. And, voila, spacebar isn't lit up --- not even labelled "backlit keyboard" cuz it's a spacebar. 8^) Jack E/NJ

    That's strange, because when I visit the webpage and press the + sign, it shows me a picture of the spacebar lit up?

    The spacebar has no lit symbols. What does your's look like in a darkened room? Jack E/NJ

    The picture has a light outline around the keyboard, and in the dark, mine has no outline around the spacebar, so I was kind of confused...

    @JackE So I'm assuming that the website is incorrect?
