Yoga 700-14ISK won't charge when lid is closed

Q: Yoga 700-14ISK won't charge when lid is closed

Hello! Got a weird issue with a Yoga 700-14ISK in my fleet that started late last week. It will no longer charge if the lid is closed and/or if the unit is powered off. The only way the unit will charge is if the lid is open and the unit is powered on. I've checked everything I can possibly think of and can't find a solution. Has anyone here seen anything like this before? Thanks in advance!

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

A couple of weeks ago, Lenovo Vantage offered a bios update to version D3CN38WW. However, after I installed it, it seems that my battery cannot be charged any further than 15%. Also, charging from, say, 10% to 15% takes ages. Prior to this bios update, I never had any issues with this. I do not use the laptop a whole lot and when I do it is always connected to AC power. At first I already noticed that the battery level was lower than I expected (~40% while I use the battery preservation mode, so I had expected something around 60%), but this week I saw that it had dropped really low and that it won't charge past 15% anymore. What I tried to resolve it: - Charge the laptop while it is turned off. Doesn't do anything, the power brick hardly generates any heat. This would rule out any OS/software issues.- Try different settings (i.e.: turning on/off) for battery preservation and quick charging in Lenovo Vantage. None of these helped. What is peculiar is that Lenovo Vantage says that the battery's condition is good, but that the charger has limited support. The last thing is particularly odd, as it is the charger that came with the laptop when I bought it. I do not know that it said prior to these problems, as I usually didn't pay much attention to what Vantage was saying. As far as I can see, the bios update introduced this problem.

Hello, My wife's Yoga will not charge completely. Previously this would happen and reseating the battery fixed the issue. This time I checed the wall charger and it was not outputting enough power to turn on the PC. I purchased a new charger and usb cable last week and it fixed the issue. This morning the laptop is around 12% battery left a pops up the message that windows does not recognize the usb device and the battery is not charging. I unplugged it and tried it again and it would charge for about 2% battery and then give the message again. Anyone seen this before?

Hello everyone!

COMPUTER INFORMATION:

The computer goes into sleep mode, which is fine normally but my computer won't charge any of my devices (they charge if the computer is on). I have three USB outlets, and none of them charge when the computer is in sleep mode, however I did try to fix this myself beforehand and I will explain what I did so no one suggests it:

I went to my device manager > Universal Serial Bus controllers > USB Root Hub (xHCI) > Properties > Power Management (tab) > and I unchecked "Allow computer to turn off this device to save power"

I've been told that the above should fix it, but it hasn't worked. Also, I only have one USB Root Hub and I should have three because I have three USB Ports.

Any help would be appreciated, thank you very much!

However the screen occasionally and randomly goes black during work and the only solution is to switch it off with power button and switch it on again. When in black screen, computer still works (fans, music, etc.) I tried to close the laptop to put it into a sleep mode and open it again-screen works but after entering my password it goes black again in a second.I was able to solve all the other issues(high CPU, RAM and disku usage) but this one is killing me.

Hey there.I just got a Yoga 500-14ISK too and I ran into a thread (here: https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-IdeaPad-100-305-500-Edge/FLex-3-Video-card-Mathematical-Operatio... where guys were having similar issues, as well as the Lenovo Companion app detecting hardware errors. I don't have black screen issues but it does tell m I have an Intel HD 520 hardware problem.What they suggested is that the laptop is "too new" for the drivers and Lenovo has acknowledged the issues. (see here: https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/documents/ht105222) Some people fixed the black screen problem by manually installing these drivers:https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/25620/Intel-Graphics-Driver-for-Windows-7-8-1-10-15-40-6th...Hope this helps!

Hello all,.I've recently bought a 14" yoga (model no: 80S700D7UK).I'm interested in possibility of upgrading the current i3-6100u CPU to an i5 or i7 but cannot find anything in the maintance manual. Does anyone have an idea if it is possible and what cpu models are compatible to the socket/chipset/cooling potential.Thank you all,Vedran

A:Yoga 510-14isk cpu upgrade

Hi RefurbishedYoga,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
Checking with i3-6100u specification here for the supported socket show BGA (ball grid array) or soldered onto the motherboard so it cannot be upgraded.
 
Similarly, as the hardware manual does not offer steps for CPU removal, page 70-71 item 4 show description of the motherboards with the CPU that it comes with too. So upgrading the CPU would mean changing the entire board instead.
 
Hope this helps answer your query.

Hello, i have the following model Yoga 510-14ISK Laptop, the problem is that whenever i try to play a game, it won' matter what title, it won't switch to the dedicated graphics.What i tried so far:-disabled onboard graphics, ran a test on League of Legends, i have about 5 to 7 fps, it did not work at all the first time, the radeon graphics driver was either missing completely or malfunctioning ! i downloaded the auto detect driver tool from radeon, seems to have partially solved the problem, the game starts but as i said above very low fps, with minimum settings, do note that with my onboard driver it can render it in high quality at the max resolution available 1366x768.-changed the power plan to high perfomance;-i ran the lenovo companion basic diagnostic test and all the components are working as they should no problem there.What could be the cause of this ? With my integrated graphics card i can run it just fine, but i have a dedicated card and my laptop does not use it at all, in any circumstance, even videos on youtube with my dedicated card enabled and onboard card disabled it moves clunky, and yes it does have the power cable connected.Any solutions ?Thank you !

I have had a Yoga 700 14ISK for approx. 1.5 years. I have just started having issues with the fan constantly running even with very little usage / open applications. I checked CPU usage in task manager and it is very low ~ 2%. I have seen some suggestions to update BIOS for the Yoga 710 to deal with this issue. The only BIOS update I have seen for the Yoga 700 was from Sept 2016. I've also seen some suggesitons to download a fan control utlity and then adjust fan settings. Anybody else experiencing this issue with the Yoga 700 ? Should I download the BIOS update from Sept 2016 ? Will that help ?  Any advice would be apprecaited. Thanks,

A lower number of wait states won't make it incompatible.  I would try reseating it.  Also, after a configuration change, it may take longer for the first POST - maybe up to a minute.  Sometimes, particular brands and models have compatibility problems.  If it still doesn't work, I suggest returning it for a different brand.  My choice is always Corsair Vengeance.  I've never had compatibility issues.  Other people may have other favorites.

A:Yoga 500 14ISK plugged in not charging

Actually this is fine. Thas is the way it should work. Your battery life is calculated in charging-decharging cycles. Imaging that if the charger went on after dropping from 100% to 99% and charged your battery again to 100%...and then it goes off and the level drops again to 99% and then again...the charger is on to charge it fully to 100%, this costs a lot of more cycles that dropping to lets say 96-97%. This causes less wear to the battery

To fix this problem, reconnect this hardware device to the computer.  There is an option to click called "learn how" in the windows camera app along with the error code, this lead me the microsoft website where I followed one of the steps to resolve this issue.

A:Camera Not Working - Yoga 510-14ISK

I managed to resolve this immediately after posting all that and going through all of that ordeal... I looked at my keyboard, saw the camera symbol on F8 and decided to press it to see if it does anything. The camera was reenabled and back to working perfectly. I remember someone in the past week decided to press loads of keys on my keyboard messing, turns out they pressed F8... So if you have this issue try pressing F8 or the alternative button on your computer before you do anything! Or you could end up wasting an entire evening and night (literally) searching forums for information trying to fix it yourself, being on with customer support remotely accessing your computer, reinstalling windows and loads of drivers, uninstalling your antivirus and also being told by Lenovo to reset your laptop to factory settings in their email support.   Hope my embarrassing situation saves you hassle in the future, also to show you to learn to laugh at yourself when something like this happens, I know I certainly am now. Good luck, Thomas
