Default Surface 2 Type cover 2 - Backlight note working

The backlight on my Typecover 2 has stopped working. Keyboard is fine; have tried refreshing twice. Any ideas?

If keyboard is fine yet backlight isn't and a refresh hasnt fixed it, its most likely a hardware fault within the keyboard which should be claimed for under warranty

I just pressed F2 - that turned it back on again. (thanks to someone on the MS forums)

Thanks for this.... was about to take mine back. i assumed the backlight buttons (F1 and F2) were for the screen, not the keyboard.

Well, considering F1 and F2 are right above 1 and 2 combined with the keys being rather small on a surface keyboard, is it not possible that you simply hit the wrong key? Everyone makes a typing error occasionally.
