Hello! I just bought a back-lit key board off of tigerdirect.com, it just came today :)

I plugged it into my PC, it light up for a few mineuts, and then stopped :(
I'm able to type in letters with it & stuff, I'm using it right now.

It won't light up, no matter if teh switch is in the on or off position


Is there some thing I'm doing wrong?
Or is it just broken?

Oh, here is the key board I orderd:

I haven't contacted them yet.
I'll call them soon.


So far, this is a really nice key board!
Other than the part about it not lighting up...

Maybe it's a shotty connection or something inside the keyboard that's shorting out. I don't really know what you can do about it except open up the keyboard and look around.

Hey, the board works, it just really dark, and the only time you can see it, is when it's really really dark in the room.

Hmm, it started to light up again this morning, and this time it's been lit for more than 14 hours strait.

I wonder if it's not broken any more?



Oh well, I'll still return it to get a brand new non defective one

I dunno :|



My dad was shaking it alot the night before it lit up... And it didn't light up.

We whent to sleep that night, and woke up to a working key board!

And I shook it alot while it was still lit, and it didn't stop glowing!




And now it's been going for like more than 27 hours strate!

I wonder if the pixy fairy came in my house and fixed it in the night? :confused:
