Num Lock light on Toshiba blinks, doesn't stay on


Oct 28, 2016
Num Lock works as it should, but the light does not stay on when Num Lock is turned on. Instead, it lights up once everytime I press a button on the keyboard. This is a Toshiba Satellite L850.
As long as it is working, it is probably just the light itself. Unless you are adamant about having it show the light, which may just be a loose wire problem, or the light needs replacing, I wouldn't really worry about it.

Now if you insist on having the light on, even if it has no effect on the functionality of the key, then if the device is still under warranty, contact the manufacturer about a repair or replacement.

If it isn't under warranty, then you yourself can do the fix, or hire someone to do so.
