Hello,
You may have inadvertently reprogrammed the keys.
Look for utilities provided by the laptop manufacture (Programs) to configure the Fn-esse key combinations.

Hope it helps.

If you shine a flashlight on the display, can you faintly see an image? If so, the trouble is that the backlight isn't working. This is pretty common, and it's usually because the inverter in the display goes bad.

Replacing the inverter is fairly simple. You need to open the open the display, which is normally a matter of removing screws at the corners and separating the front bezel from the back. The inverter is a small circuit board at the bottom, held in by one or two screws. A couple of cables plug into it. Unplug them, mount the replacement and reconnect it, put the display back together and you've repaired your own laptop. Of course you can also take the computer to a service shop if you don't feel up to trying the repair yourself.

Replacement inverters are pretty easy to find for the major brand computers. A few minutes searching the Web or checking on eBay will give several sources. Typically a new inverter costs $30 to $50. There are also many YouTube videos showing how to replace an inverter.

Good luck! Thanks for using Fixya.

Hi

you could try this combination of keys to enable/disable your webcam

FN+F1 then if you use skype or msn you could then try the camera to see if it works
also take a look in device manager under imaging devices to see if it in there and no yellow question mark beside it

if it is in there and has a yellow question mark beside it then un install it and restart the laptop
and hopefully on start up windows will re install the webcam correctly for you

many thanks

SOURCE: As soon as I power

hi hope you are well, there could be a few issues that caused this, if you have another system where u can test that all components are working then try to do that, if you already did and nothing happened. Unplug the system and remove the battery. Hold the power button for 30 seconds. Then try powering up -- if it won't, the motherboard is faulty, and you'll need to replace it am really sorry could not be of further help..

My function keys doesn't work in my laptop toshiba satellite c660-a047


The function key, labeled "Fn" and located in the lower-left corner of your keyboard, is a useful feature. By pressing "Fn" along with one of the numbered function keys at the top of the keyboard (F1 through F12), you can adjust your screen brightness, enable and disable your touchpad or wireless modem, lock your computer and complete a variety of other tasks. These keys will not work if the "Fn" key is not pressed along with them. While the "Fn" key itself does not turn on and off, there are settings that can make it behave differently, or seem to be disabled.

Click "Start," then "All programs" or "Programs," then "Toshiba." Select "Utilities," then "Accessibility." Place a checkmark in the box to make sure the "Fn" key will work whether you press it simultaneously with the F1 through F12 keys or immediately before pressing those keys. Customize the other options on the screen, then click "OK." Test your "Fn" key. One of the easiest ways to do this is by pressing "Fn" and "Esc" at the same time. This toggles the sound on your computer on and off, and will show a speaker icon on your screen if it works. Press "Fn" and "Num lock" at the same time if the "Fn" key still does not work. Use the "F11" key if your laptop has no "Num Lock" key. Test the "Fn" key again, using the same method as in Step 4. Locate a licensed repair technician if the key still is not working. A hardware issue may be at fault. Hope this helps.

Try this; Press Fn+F1 instead of F1 alone or Fn+\F2 not only F2. Most laptops are by default Fn key activated so we always need to press it with the key combination.
If this doesn't help, there must be internal faulty/problem. Boot up the system and keep pressing F8 and go into "Advanced Boot options", if it's working, then there's no hardware, must be the Fn key.
Good luck
