After reading through a 75page forum today... I found this(literally the last post!) kevin38423198Newbie Finally, i have got keyboard backlight working on my dv6!!! I used the connector for the fingerprint reader, because it's a nice feature but I can live without it. It's not optimal, because it seems like it's not getting the full +5V, but it's something! https://www.dropbox.com/sh/gxn3mrj6fhb6kk7/AACA6NszygdvnBbcaOOnnx1Ba?dl=0 Here is a link to pictures of it. One picture is made while it's not in the laptop, but connected to an external +5V source. You can clearly see that it's brighter in that picture. Mar 22, 2015 This was on his HP dv6-6b41ed Now if I get the dv6 7000 backlit keyboard http://m.ebay.com/itm/New-for-HP-Pa...top-keyboard-backlit-/161413942583?nav=SEARCH Just to make sure, I can fold the ribbon cable? Will it be backwards if I fold it tho (like the connections)?? The next thing is idk where the fingerprint scanner input is, is it too far from the end of that(backlit) cable?
