    Settings are in the BIOS. May be Nitrosense has an option to control it .
  • Can you provide the exact model? Example AN515-42-58VH. Does your model have this symbol?

    Everything is working except Fn+F9 (Backlight),i have checked the F9 key in keyboard tester and it is also working find.So i thought maybe it is driver related issue.

    Thanks for Responding. I think Backlit setting in BIOS is for how much time you want it to keep the light ON,Backlit OFF/ ON  controlled by Fn+F9 key..
  • Try restarting the battery:

    What happens when you press fn + f9 and only f9?
    When I press Fn+F9 nothing happen, i though maybe F9 key is malfunctioning , so i tested the keyboard in a web keyboard tester and when i pressed the F9 button the virtual keyboard's F9 button lights up so i think F9 button is OK. So the Key is Fine then maybe the problem with the DRIVER or Faulty LED back-light OR THE Main board not providing the voltage require to light up LED . So if there any driver for the keyboard one problem could be ruled out.
  • I suggest that you take the laptop apart and check the backlit keyboard connector:

    Hello Sir, Thanks for your respond. The problem not solve yet.  I was away from my Laptop for few days, by the way i opened up my laptop and using a Digital multimeter i checked voltage around the 4 pin for the led backlight and found no voltage. Having the laptop open i connected my HDD and started laptop and pressed Fn+F9 key  and check the voltage but found nothing. Then i used a watch battery (3V) and connected to the ribbon of the led backlight and it lit . So now i am certain that my keyboard led backlight is ok and there is no power from the mainboard to the ribbon. I checked voltage around the ribbon and it is all around 15.5v to 16v ( picture given). 
    I check an open port JDMIC1  (picture given) and i found the voltage +3.8v . Can i use this port to lightup the led backlight. 
    Now in this situation what is your suggestion? 

    1-> GND
    234-> No Voltage
    10-> GND
    9->  +3.8V
    5678-> 15.8V to 16V  
    Now in this situation what is your suggestion?

    Yes , it was the first version when i bought the laptop. (by the way i think it is to enable or disable 30s backlight timeout.
