How to back light the keyboard? - Toshiba Satellite A105 Notebook


Answers :

Hi,
Just about the best question i've seen on here in 10 months!!!

How to backlight the keyboard???? Well.... most people buy a customized keyboard from the manufacturer or elsewhere that specializes in them.
The other way is to customize it yourself. What you would have to do is pinch a power supply from the laptop motherboard with positive and negative wires, say the fan connector plug for example as they only run on a few volts and are 2 pinned, then you'd have to find an place to install a strip of LED lights and connect the wires, somewhere under the keyboard if you can in a place that's not going to damage the laptop or interfere with the electronics.
Put the strip as close to the motherboard as you can and cover the backside of the strip with sticky foam pads and don't put it near the processor or the northbridge because the get very hot and will melt the foam.
Depending on the layout of the motherboard and the components you are going to have some figuring out to do.
Some people suggest drilling small holes in the underside of the keyboard, don't do this as you can damage the membrane that controls the keystrokes.


Good luck with your project.
