    keyboard lights


    I nearly complained to the ebay seller who sold me my illuminated keyboard as the three leds for caps /num lock etc did not work. Then I noticed a brief mention somewhere on this forum about kb lights not working. I switched to W7 and the kb lights are ok (the backlighting always worked) so there is a kb driver fault in the latest build.

    :)

    C6-00 keyboard light not working....

    Hi,



    There are light sensors in the C6-00, the keyboard light will switch on only when the sensors sense that the phone/ keyboard is in dark place.. if there is sufficient light (or light falling on the sensors) then the keyboard light doesnt glow.



    Hope this helps!

    E72 Light sensor

    when it detect enough light, it dim keyboard light and brighter screen light. When it detect less light, it dim screen and brighter keyboard light.

  5. Sorry I didn't respond earlier -- but I just noticed that they keyboard lights on my Logitech Illuminated keyboard do not work with the latest Win10TP build. I know they worked in previous builds, and they work fine in Windows 7 and Win 8.1.

    I went to the Logitech site, downloaded and installed the latest SetPoint, rebooted -- and no change. Keyboard lights still don't work in the latest Win10TP build!

    It's been reported and mentioned before in the forum. The next build should address this issue.

  7. It was mentioned in the MS Insider forums -- and the response there was to (1) check the keyboard on another machine (to confirm it works), and (2) to update the keyboard drivers to the latest.

    I know it works on this machine with the other OSs I'm using, and I have the latest driver installed both in Win10TP and in Win8.1.

    I'm presuming that, at some point, Logitech is going to step up to this and release a new driver version that will work with Win10 -- but that's probably not going to be until after RTM.

    So, here's hoping you are right and that this gets "fixed" in the Consumer Preview.

    Don't blame Logitech. I have two different models of keyboard, plus a couple of dell laptops. The lights are not working on any of them. I think we must point the fingers at the OS.
    I appreciate that one reason the hardware people get early builds, is to correct incompatibility, but to slam the whole lot looks to me like a programming fault inthe build(s)

    I don't think you can blame either Microsoft or Logitech for this type of "Fault"

    Keyboard illumination is a bells & whistles feature, not a core function of the keyboard, (not suggesting it's not a useful Feature), and so Microsoft's core driver should not need to support it, (partly because a different manufacturer would be free to implement this feature in a different way).

    From a Logitech point of view it's too soon in the preview time-line to be sure that the Keyboard functionality in the OS is fixed, and so it makes technical and commercial sense to wait a while, probably at a time when RTM is announced but before the shrinkwraps reach the stores *Smile

    FWIW, I'm using a Corsair K40 keyboard and the lights work just fine. Even without the software installed the keyboard lights up and with it it works just like it's supposed to. The only "issue" is the NumLock indicator is off but that's really not a big deal since it's on when I boot up.

  12. We're not talking about the keyboard backlights -- the ones that illuminate the keys. I have an Illuminated keyboard and those work just fine. We're talking about the notification lights -- the ones that turn on when Num Lock and Caps Lock are pressed. Those do NOT work in Win10TP current build.

    As to whether or not they are a "core function" -- in my view, they ARE such functions -- just as when I select "Drive" in my automatic transmission in my car, a little light goes on in the dashboard to indicate that has been selected.

    In my view, "bells and whistles" in keyboards are things like programming special keys, key combinations, or macros.

    keyboard lights

    Hi Mark,

    I class the indicator lights as a non core function or "Bells and Whistles" as I have owned and or used more than one keyboard, mainly Wireless, that do not have any indication lamps fitted. these Keyboards were fully functional in that I could type on them and the correct characters, showed on the screen. If the manufacturer driver was used you would see a temporary on screen pop-up indication if you used the windows driver you got nothing *Smile
