I have a lenovo p500 ideapad that I am trying to install a backlit keyboard in. Obviously, mine did not come with one.
This model did indeed come with both types of keyboards.
There is a separate ribbon on the backlit board for power....I assume thats what it is at least.
I installed a new CD DVD connector board as that's where the backlit board draws its power from, but did not realize the connector on the MB is larger as well.
I do not want to replace the entire MB.
Since the non backlit board obviously has power going to it for the caps lock and num lock buttons, is there a way I might tap into that power source to power the new backlit board.
I do not mind if it is always on.
Would appreciate your insights!
Thank you kindly.
