Question about Computers & Internet
I was replacing my backlit keyboard for my Asus G60JX laptop and didn't know anything about opening up the ZIF connection for the FFC. Well I figured out the keyboard cable, but the one that powers the backlights is a 4-connector flexible flat cable and I cannot figure out how to get it back into the port from which I pulled it. There's a black tab that I pulled on what I'm guessing is a ZIF and it doesn't make it any easier to insert the cable. I really don't want to break it.
Check the connection on the motherboard a little closer. There should be an unlockable part in the connector which you can slide back and forth in order to remove/fix the cable.

You will need to gently push the connector
edge which is usually black or brown on both sides to the left and flexi-cable should slide out easily

Use the VGA port to connect an external monitor, this will get you up and running temporarily until you can fix the screen, it sounds like you have a faulty inverter.

Can you lift the plastic bar at either side on the board where the cable was pulled from?.If so,just lift both sides,one at a time till the plastic bar is loose,then seat your cable straight down until it will go no further and then push both sides of the bar back down to secure the cable...hope that fixes your problem:)

No i'm sorry but that model has no keyboard backlight. If you wanted one which did have a backlight you would have to purchase a customised one.
