    Is it backlit or something?  You want the NumLock or CapsLock to work, and they don't respond though the keyboard works otherwise?

Well, if it was from the same lot, I guess it should light up!
Supposedly they tell you what part you should order if you e-mail Toughbook_Tech_Support@us.panasonic.com , but you have to give a full model number, not just CF-28 or such.

You might double-check that you have the same Toshiba power management utilities running on your box as your neighbors, in case Windows decided not to get along with them last week.

Hey, look at that!  http://repair4laptop.org/disassembly_panasonic.html  That oughtta help get to any failed component (which, if it's an LED, you can check with a couple of button cells if not a 3.7V supply.)
Or just ....no, maybe not the "putting a LED into the case" one, that one has you drilling a -new- hole in the case someplace else so a LED can shine out of there onto the keys below.

Forward slash on panasonic toughbook


It sounds like you have a ToughBook with a NON-US Keyboard or keyboard layout. The physical "SLASH" key is the last key on the bottom row above the SPACEBAR row.

It is the key on the FAR right side just to the left of the right-side
SHIFT key. Make sure in the taskbar that the EN sign is shown
(on the bottom right side of the screen next to the date/time.

If it is shown FR or ES then your keyboard is in French or Spanish.
You can try to use the ALT+SHIFT key combination to toggle
the FR or ES back to EN (English). If not, then you must
ADD the English keyboard in the Control Panel under
Regional Settings (Clock, Language and Region in Windows 7).

Under Keyboards Click "keyboard" then Click "add" then
choose English (United States), Keyboard then US (only).

That is it. Make sure you select US as "Default" and then you
won't have to go thru all this ever again.

Good Luck!

    Adjust brightness on laptop


    On the Panasonic Toughbook CF30 you can change
    the Brightness UP by pressing FN + F2 keys
    simultaneously to increase brightness and to decrease it
    hold FN and press F1 to lower brightness.
    This assumes that you have the HOTKEY driver loaded
    first, which enables these function keys.
    Good Luck!

    Panasonic Toughbook won't load Windows XP CD


    You can check to see if the hard drive is dislodged, but other than that I don't know what to tell you. If you know the drive is functioning correctly then your motherboard is probably dead.

    I have a CF-30 toughbook and my screen lights up for about 4 seconds and then goes dark everytime I open the the lid. I can see the screen is still on but not lit up, it will relight if I close the screen...


    It could be loose wiring.

    1. Take the screen bezel and LCD board off and reseat all the connections. In other words, unplug and plug it in again.

    The function (purple) key symbols type when I am trying to type non-function (white) symbols. When I press the function (purple) key, the white symbol types.


    There's a "Fn" key on the bottom left hand of the key board.

    This key switches between the purple/white key funtions.

    This gives the opportunity to have loads of functions with just a few keys.

    I have a panasonic Toughbook CF-29 printing with keyboard


    Your text prints out formatted helter-skelter all over the page? How about trying print to PDF and seeing how that looks when you load the PDF. Alternately, you can reinstall the printer's driver or change the settings of the program you're printing from.
    It sounds like your browser's doing a bad job of rendering to print. Try cutting and pasting to a word processor and printing from there.
