I spilled hot chocolate on my backlit keyboard about 18 months ago and lost the use of some of the function keys and numbers. I ordered a replacement ‘backlit’ keyboard on Amazon that came from China. The keyboard I received was not backlit and I was unable to return it. I replaced the malfunctioning keyboard anyway, which was not that difficult to do, thanks to iFixit. A few months ago the replacement unbacklit keyboard started to malfunction; the tilde and several number keys stopped working, one by one. I searched for a replacement backlit keyboard. There were several listed on the internet but those were also unbacklit keyboards listed as backlit keyboards. You can tell by the shape of the connection strip. I finally found a used backlit keyboard on eBay, plan to put it in today. Will let you know how it goes.
