Try the function key which was assigned for keyboard backlight adjustment.
It should be "F8".

I have the same problem. I got mine last week and the whole keyboard won't light up except for those utility keys. If you find any fix, please update us. Thank you

Keyboard backlight of my new MSI Modern 15 laptop is not working since the first boot up. Only the power button backlight is working. Any solution?
Have you tried updating to MSI Center PRO?

On the test, the LED for F8 will light up when you press it together with Fn. It just that the backlight just won't turn on, so I think the keyboard key is not the problem.
Ya felt the same. This is not the issue with the f8 key. May be a software settings issue or the cable connection issue. There is actually a separate small cable for keyboard backlight on keyboard panel, that may be disconnected or loosely connected. I tried all the possible software settings and updates, so I think that may be the cable issue.

Seems more related to the hardware issue, contact service center to get repaired.
