Lenovo Yoga 720 15IKB - Paper Display shortcut (fn+esc) not working

Q: Lenovo Yoga 720 15IKB - Paper Display shortcut (fn+esc) not working

Hi! I have read everywhere that fn+esc should activate/deactivate Paper Display (for example here) but it does not seem to work on my new Yoga 720 15". I found this but it is supported only by different models. Any ideas on what to do? Is the hotkey function working on other Yoga 720 computers? Thanks!

Please help! I use the paper display mode at night so don't want to completely uninstall it but it keeps coming back very soon after I turn it off. The screen turns yellow and dims, the mode itself does not change. Then I simply activate and deactivate the mode after which the screen turns bright white but very soon the problem repeats. I have made all the updates found on Lenovo Support site for my device and Windows 10 is updated as well. What else can I do to solve this problem? Thank you very much in advance!

Hi, In trying to get the fn+esc shortcut to activate Paper Display to work I installed this. However, not only the shortcut does not work but actually the Paper Display function is now disabled from the Lenovo Settings panel. Is it possible to enable it again? Is there any chance of getting the shortcut to work? I would appreciate any help on this. Thanks.

I bought this Lenovo Yoga 900 Orange on Arpil 8 2016. Today is June 8 2016, I have to make this post.  I was in the meeting yesterday and taking note on MS words. And that was the only program that I opened at that time. Suddenly, the screen turn pitch black on me. I thought that it was the display driver again. Yet this time it stopped for at least 15 minutes, and I had to switch to pen and paper to take note of the meeting. During that time, I try to restart the computer by hitting the power button. Until the third time, the screen was coming back to me. This is very awful.  I bought this machine and heard the rumor that its display driver is not good. But I DO NOT expect it to be that bad. Before the major incident above, the driver did stop 3 times in the past, but it restarted within second. I did a little research and knew that other users had to deal with that too. So I thought that once in a while the screen will die for several seconds, and it was ok with me.  Yesterday, during my meeting, stop more than 15 minutes. Unbelievable!!!.  I want to return the product. Please guide me through this process. If I have to pay the 15% fee, I will do it.

Hello, Does anybody tried to charge the Device by USB-PD? Technically it should be possible with a >90W Charger, but I read different Statements. Some say, it's only charging, if the device is off. But that's not the target, it should be possible to work & charge with it.Others say, that only the 13" Yoga can be charged, the 15" (4k Display btw.) seems to need too much energy and doesn't push it to the battery But 90W, as the original dedicated non-usb-Power-Charger, is 90W, so there seems to be negotiating-issues. But as I said: Too many different statements. My Dream-Configuration would look something like this:- 1 USB-C-Charger like Dell TDK33 (4,[email protected])- 1 USB-C-Hub (primarly for LAN & Display), e.g. Andobil 9-in-1. It's too expensive to buy & try. Especially if there are Negotiating-Issues, you have to try different Chargers until you find a working one or to come to the conclusion, that its impossible. TL;DR: Can I Charge the 730-15ikb (4k) over USB-C while working? Which Charger is known to work? Thanks

Hi there,  My very new Lenovo Yoga 710 (15" IKB) laptop/two-in-one has been fantastic so far except in one regard. Whenever I play a game, the fan gets quite loud and the temperature shoots up. I'm not one hundred percent sure if this happened in the first few days but I have come to notice it far more recently. When playing a pretty standard game, such as World of Warcraft, the temp will shoot up to somewhere around 65 degrees celsius (sometimes up to 70) with the bottom getting quite hot, and the fans will become quite loud. Even a very low requirement game, like FIFA 15 (which is obviously 2 years old now), can cause the temp to reach about 60 degrees and the fans to get loud, and when downloading a driver from Nvidia I noticed that the temperature had again risen, this time to 52 degrees with the fans spinning loudly again. I had earlier had a display issue that I fixed by downloading display drivers from Lenovo's website. I'm not sure if there's any driver I could download to rectify this issue (I already updated BIOS from the download on Lenovo's website)?

I bought a Lenovo Yoga 720 - 15IKB two weeks ago. The laptop works fine except for one important detail: it has never recognized the AC adapter as being plugged in. Basically when the PC is on, even if plugged in, it will drain down to 5% and turn itself off. But when it is off and plugged in, it charges up to 100% battery without a problem. How can I get my laptop to charge while plugged in? As it charges without issue when turned off, I want to think it is more of an issue with drivers or BIOS than the AC adapter and power connection.  All Windows updates and Lenovo System Updates have been installed, except for one: BIOS Update - 10 [64]When I install and then run this update, I get this blue screen of death Windows Error DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the Battery drivers in the Device Manager several times. I restored battery settings to default, tweaked them, and set them back to default with no avail. Can anyone help or make any suggestions??? Thank you very much!

I thought nothing of it and restarted my computer and nothing happened after that. So I thought I was free to enjoy my good looking device. But now after my third usage I closed my laptop and went out to run some errands I came back an hour later or so and tried to open my computer and keep on using it but to my surprise the screen stayed black. Completely black, no flickering or anything. So i tried to reboot it by holding the start button down for 10s giving the computer a minute or so to rest then turned it back on. Same thing happens Keyboard lights up for a second or two then the fans just keep running and the screen stays completely black. This is extremely frustrating since this is a brand new computer and I desperately need it for studying and work. Screen black, computer starts and runs I can hear the fans keyboard lights up at first but screen is completely black. I would appreciate a quick response Lenovo, I had so high hopes for my new laptop. Best regards, Elisabet.

After i upgraded to BIOS 2XCN30WW(V2.05) dated 2017/06/21 i started to experience lags and temporary freezes (for 20/30 seconds and it would recover) while using windows 10 creators edition.The lag/freeze can be described as a period of time every 10 minutes or so in which the computer stops responding to keyboard input and eventually to mouse movements, if you had a youtube video or audio playing in the background it starts coming out distorted, everything makes you think there is something hogging the CPU or RAM, it recovers itself after 20 or 30 seconds, sometimes less than that.I first blamed Slack Client but quickly found that it didn't have anything to do. It didn't seem related to load as the CPU/RAM usage in Task Manager remained low during these periods.I then blamed a recent Windows Update patch , which i rolled back prompty without noticing any changes.My last option and what ultimately resolved the issue is the rolling back the BIOS upgrade that i applied at about the same time of the windows patch.I enabled the Allow Back-Flash option in BIOS setup and rolled back to version 2XCN29WW, and the problem dissapeared for good, and just to confirm that the BIOS was to blame after a few days of happy computing i decided to give the new BIOS another try and TADAH! soon after the update the freeze/lags started again.I just wanted to share this with you guys in hopes that if you are having similar issues you can resolve them using this message.And since Lenovo doesn't seem...

So I have a Lenovo V510 and just as it came out of warranty I accidentally dropped it and my screen was broken, took it to my local IT to repair and waited two weeks since the first screen were damaged on delivery and finally came the call to pickup my lappy only to hear that none can be done for it. According to my local IT they fitted the new screen and it was very dim had to use an external monitor or shine a light from back to see that it is working. So I wanted to know can I still save it or is my lappy a goner. Opened it my self and saw that the cable to the screen might be damaged, can this cause weak backlighting. Currently using this as media centre on my TV but would like it to be portable again. Any help will be appreciated.

Hi everyone, I have recently purchased an IdeaPad 320-15 IKB and i'm experiencing some weird flickering of the display. The problem is that I don't think it's a hardware issue, because starting windows in Safe Mode solves it. As you can imagine, I cannot use the laptop in safe mode  Has anybody experienced this behaviour and are there any fixes? Drivers i could install/uninstall? Software i should check? My main concern is determine the cause of this.  What i tried until now: uninstalling and reinstalling Intel/Nvidia drivers, applied a display flicker fix from Norton (even though i'm using Bitdefender) - i know... but desperate times - and i ran out of ideas. I would get it to an authorised service, but as i said before, chances are it's not a HW issue. Thanks
