Unable to increase keyboard backlight brightness (broken key)

Hi all, 

I have a G531GV notebook and I recently broke my Up Arrow key.

What this means is now I can't increase my keyboard backlight brightness, as the shortcut for it is FN + Up Arrow.

It's now permanently off/dark.

I have tried to remap the key to something else, but it didn't work (I think due to the FN function changing the scan codes for the keys)

My question is:
1. Can I increase the brightness via software and not using the physical keyboard buttons? I tried via Armory Crate but no luck
2. If software isn't an option, can I change/customize/remap FN functions somehow?

Thank you in advance

Hi @kkk737 ,

Due to the inability to customize Fn shortcuts, please try adjusting the brightness in Armory Crate under Devices > Lighting, select 'static', and test whether it works. Thank you.
