Lenovo Mini Wireless Keyboard: Readable Power Switch

The backside of the Lenovo N5901 Mini Wireless Keyboard (which arrived with the aforementioned Q150) has a black-on-black power switch with ON and OFF legends (yes, I think they’re backwards, too) embossed in the matte black case: under anything less intense than enhanced interrogation lighting, you (well, I) can’t determine the switch position.

Of course, the myriad certifications / ratings / labels required for compliance with all the regulations are perfectly legible:

Lenovo Mini Keyboard - enhanced labels
Lenovo Mini Keyboard - enhanced labels

Working a dab of white correction fluid into the letters makes them blindingly obvious; the smudges around the letters will wear off in short order.

I should probably add a bit of white to the switch background as well.

  1. I noticed that the approval stamp of the Dutch Assocation of Housewives was glaringly absent! Amazed that people are still allowed to sell stuff without the seal of approval of that noble institution.

    Correction fluid works nice for that purpose. I occasionally use it too touch up the letters ‘fuse’ in panel fuseholders. Now that I remember, it also worked very nice on the lettering of that ancient AVO8. Red nail polish works nice too on occasion. It’s just that I always feel so awkward buying nail polish….

      I admit to the occasional straw man purchase of such things…
