Hi, I have a strange issue with a Lenovo b50-30. It was a little slow and a few keys didn't work.

I removed the harddrive a copy the files over to another PC. Removed the keyboard to see the model number, put everything back together. I have a feeling I'm not the first person to take this laptop apart as it's missing a couple of screws.

Now the backlight only works while the charger isn't connected. When I connect the charger the backlight goes off, disconnect the charger backlight comes back on.

Any ideas?

Here's a video showing the problem

Was it working before you remoted the drive and keyboard? If so, go through it and make sure all the connections are in properly. Don't think I ever seen an issue like this with the backlight shutting off on wall power only.
