Notice for VAIO Fit series - No automatic keyboard backlight function available

There is an incorrect reference to the automatic lighting function for the keyboard backlight in the online VAIO User Guide. There is no ambient light sensor in the VAIO Fit models with a keyboard backlight, and therefore, no automatic lighting function.

Incorrect information

• You can set the keyboard backlight to automatically turn on and off according to ambient light intensity.
If you enable this function, you can also set a time period to turn off the keyboard backlight after inactivity of keyboard operations.
• Ambient light intensity is measured by the ambient light sensor. Blocking the ambient light sensor may turn on the keyboard backlight.

Wrong keyboard information in manual

Solution

To turn the keyboard backlight on and off, change the keyboard backlight settings in VAIO Control Center (select Mouse and Keyboard).

The User Guide will be updated to reflect the correct information.
