this may wound obvious, but have you played with the F8, F9 and F10 keys? These keys control the brightness of the backlit keyboard.
F8 = backlighting on or off
F9 = decreased backlight glow
F10 = increased backlight glow

Also try taking it to a pitch black room. Then press F8 and F10. If that doesn't work, and if system preferences/Keyboard & Mouse/Keyboard has "illuminate keyboard in low light conditions" ticked, then it is broken.

Hope this helps. :)
