i have a pi 4 and recently got a new MFTEK keyboard and mouse. both are working and light up when plugged into a laptop. when i connect the keyboard in the pi, it doesn't light up (still works as a normal keyboard) though the mouse does. to turn the lights on, you press 'scroll lock' but again once plugged in the pi, it doesn't turn on. anyone know how to fix this?

    yes, install the necessary drivers ... your question is off topic here because it is about Linux, not about Raspberry Pi

Have you tried unplugging and replugging your keyboard? And if the keyboard did not come with batteries, maybe there's another battery spot for the lights? Hope this helps.

  • The question does say "plugged into" several times, so it is not battery powered at all.
