Swift 3 Keyboard Backlight

How to enable Keyboard Backlight of Swift 3 (SF314-51)?

Is any other function key or software which can enable the Keyboard Backlight?

    The FN+F9 keys are the hot keys to toggle the keyboard backlight on/off. If you turn it on, the backlight should come on and after about 30 seconds of non-use the keyboard light will turn off. Pressing any key should bring the light back on. If this is not working please contact Acer support for your location from this link:

    I tried Demo unit in Retail shop, but the Fn+F9 is not working for enable Keyboard Backlight.

     

    Is any driver need to be installed?

    The models that sold in the US have a backlit keyboard. No driver is needed in order for it to work. Please contact the Acer support channel for your country from the link below, so they can verify whether these models sold in Hong Kong have a backlit keyboard.

    No unfortunately no backlit

    I have same model as yours too

    Annoyingly I bought his model after seeing good review about backlit keyboard and that it is one of the major selling point on the Hong Kong acre website.

    But after buying it seems not possible to have this function.

    i am going to contact the ACER Hong kong tomorrow and going back to the retail store for asking about the problem-----just brought it yesterday..........

  • brummyfan2brummyfan2 Posts: 11,746ACE Trailblazer

    Hi,

    These models came with backlit keyboard as an optional addition, yes you can return it and get one with backlit keyboard.

    Please don't click "Like" but click "Yes" for "Did this answer the question", if I resolve the problem.

    Just received the message from ACER through Facebook, the model selling in HK which is no backlit keyboard...........

  • danielng_123danielng_123 Posts: 4Member
    Yes you are right. I cannot find any models in hk with backlit keyboard in fact there's no choice at all. It is therefore quite annoying that they use it the same advertisement as the US which shows backlit keyboard as major selling point on their website
