Q: Yoga 720 - Does your Yoga have this issue, Chassis bent /bowed

My brand new Yoga 720 is seriously bent (one corner is up by 3 mms). I have sent back immediately to offical Lenovo service. They sent it back with a report that it is fully operable. Since then, I have a wedge in my notebook case and all I have to do is put it under my notebook if I use it. Now I know which brand not to buy next time.

I currently have a 2 month old Yoga 11s.  I use it mostly as a tablet or in tent mode and its perfect for holding with one or two hands.  Yesterday at church I was taking notes on it with my trusty little stylus when I noticed the chassis has a bow in it.  I have a simple theory as to why this is happening.  It comes from holding the yoga in Tablet form in portrait orientation.  There is a tiny gap caused by the hinge design and the feet of the laptop.  If you hold your hands in the middle of your tablet your squeezing the keyboard and screen together causing it to deform under its own weight. I'm thinking of contacting yoga and asking to purchase two extra orange feet.  I want to know if placing them in the middle will cause the screen to stop flexing.    My greatest fear is that they are two thick and this idea won't work or I will have to sand them down a bit in order to keep the gap equal.  So I'm curious if I'm the only one has this issue?  Flip your yoga around or just take a simple ruler on the keyboard to see if yours is deformed.  I've noticed that this thing really flexes under any pressure. 

A:Does your Yoga have this issue, Chassis bent /bowed

Yes. Yoga bought yesterday, and is clearly bent. No need for the ruler. I'm returning it this afternoon.

Hi, I bought new Yoga 900-13ISK (ornage) 3 months ago. I've just realized that sometimes it is not quite stable on a flat table (it swings a little bit). What is more worrying - I am able to straighten it just by stressing all laptop corners with my hands. After some time the problem occurs again. This mean that some part of the laptop (aluminium bottom casing, frame or sth that is reponsible for making the computer a stiff is not working ok... Or maybe it is a feature?  Anyone noticed sth similar?  Jacob

Hello, I came here to ask Lenovo Staff for any feedback. Week ago I've bought Yoga 710. After few days of use its front left corner went up, it became unstable on flat surface. Pads aren't the problem and everything is fine if notebook is closed. I left it open with some book to keep it flat over night to see if it helps, it did but only for a while. I've search through this forum if anyone had such issue and Lenovo Support members claimed several times that it should be returned as this is covered by warranty. Sides are stiff and solid but the whole front is pretty much flexible. I could flex it myself but this can damage internal parts which I'd like to avoid. So I took pictures, contacted local Lenovo Support (Poland) about it. Surprisingly they've refused to help by claiming that this is "cosmetic defect". I've asked twice, told them about statements here and I don't blame them, but there's clearly some misunderstanding. Here's the picture of how it looks like. It would be great if someone could clarify why I can't receive warranty service while I read here others did.  I still have week to return it to store but this model (with Kaby Lake) isn't available anymore so they can't replace it for me and yet it's not their fault. I'd like to keep it, stay fair and have my issue resolved. Best Regards, Simon. o/

I just noticed my 2.5 month old all in one laptop is bent. After less than 10 uses (been busy so didn't get enough time to use it yet). You can see from the pictures how bad this is. I can actually insert my finger nail behind the screen a bit. I didn't notice this but I'm very frustrated. https://s11.postimg.org/599l1rk03/IMAG2026.jpghttps://s16.postimg.org/qot2kzww5/IMAG2021.jpg

I purchased my 910 around June of 2017 and 99% of the time it is on my desk connected to desktop speakers. I noticed a couple months ago that it was not laying totally flat. The back right and front left were off and the computer would slightly teeter up and down when I typed. Previously it had layed perfectly flat and closed correctly. It has gotten worse and since I had previously ignored it, thinking one of the rubber stubs must have come off, I decided to inspect. I have definitely come to the conclusion that the top of the keyboard and the bottom (in the exact middle) are warped, they are bloated towards the middle like a slight bubble. The computer now sits back and when lay my hands on it to type the front will go down and touch while the back goes up. I also cannot close the computer all the way. Since the middle bubbled, the screen hits that and the edges can be pushed down all the way but once let go the screen sits about half an inch above the edge. Disappointing for a $1000 computer. The only reason I can come it with for it is possibly being a heat warp? The upper left hand corner gets incredibly hot to the touch if the computer is left on for a couple hours. Not entirely sure. Help? Thanks.

I got my first Lenovo Yoga 710 around 1.5 weeks ago, and noticed something immediately when I opened it up. The metal "case" or laptop bottom was uneven. The bottom right side of the laptop is sorta bend from factory, the rubber part does not even touch the table when I put the laptop down. It isnt much, maybe a few millimeters, but whenever I use the laptop I hear and feel it rocking back and fort and making a clicking sound against the table. I really didnt expect this from such an expensive laptop.  So, I contacted the store I got it from, and they ordered a new one from me. And guess what, the new unit is JUST the same. I looked at their display model and it sat flush with the table, rock solid. Did they just ship a bad batch of laptops with uneven surfaces, seeing that both the laptops I got is uneven?  To be spesific, its the Yoga 710 14"ISK (I think). Anyone else experienced this themself, or know what I should do?

Hello,My brand new Yoga 720 15" has some chassis issues. As it is seen on the pictures, 1. Charging port is bended inward, without being dropped. (As the port is too narrow, charger might bend when it is plugged in) (Pic1)2. Back chassis is not aligned. For example, left corner of the back chassis stays different than the right corner.(Pic2&Pic3)3. When the lid is closed, lid doesn't seem straight. It has curvature in the middle.(Pic4)4. The middle of the back chassis has also an alignment issue.(Pic5)5. Texts on the back chassis are weak or not aligned(Pic6)So....Do you guys have these kinds of alignment problems( or bent charger port etc..)? Should I think as this is a flexible laptop and all these issues are normal or Should I go for a replacement? Thank you in advance!Chargin Port is bendedLeft corner stays insideRight corner stays different than the left cornerMiddle of the back chassis alignment issueWhen the lid is closed, screen is curved in the middle, ot straightTexts on the back is either not aligned or weak

Based on your pictures.  In my opinion and I dont speak for Lenovo.
Picture 1 is not normal
Picture 2-3 Ive seen it on other laptops and other brands as well.  It does not bother me but if it bothers you I would exchange it.
Picture 4 and the other bowing one see the below link.  I know its not talking about your model specifically but ive noticed to differing degrees a certain amount of bowing on my laptops whether from Lenovo or other brands.  Im not saying I agree with the below post just wanted to share it.

Years ago on a IBM thinkpad when i got it there was a misaligned usb port.  I never fixed it because i needed it for work.  Back then it had a standard 3 year warranty.  They never were able to fix it.  The port still works even today.  Regardless if it bothers you and you can exchange it exchange it.  I've gotten to the point unless its obvious like a dead pixel or a scratch i try not to look too hard or I will find something and i will never be happy.  Your picture 2 and 3 for example looks exactly like my nephews laptop from another brand.  He never noticed it until I pointed it out.  I regret it because when he got an Ideapad 720 13 he saw the same thing but my nieces Ideapad 910 was lined up fine.

I own an X1 Yoga Gen1 and have had it for just shy of a year now. I know ThinkPads are supposed to be pretty rugged but I still baby this machine. It's always stored in a laptop sleeve in my backpack. Despite my carefulness, it developed a hairline crack just beneath the screw on the bottom right of the screen that is covered by the little rubber insert. This crack eventually got worse through normal use and then the area around it chipped. Am I able to get this plastic piece replaced under warranty? Here's a picture of the damage. Sorry if this isn't the right place to ask, I couldn't really find another way to reach out to support about this. There's a shop near me that can do warranty repairs so I just want to make sure this is covered.

Hi everyone,  Today I noticed that my trackpad is not exactly flush with my chassis. There is a tiny gap where the trackpad ends and the chassis begins. The gap is bif enough for a piece of paper to slide through. This is concerning since dust can not get into the chassis. I have never noticed it before, and I have never dropped or damaged the computer. It may be a manufacturer error, and I may have never noticed it. I have had this computer for 5 months. Any ideas? Would lenovo cover this under warranty? Is it even worth going through the warranty trouble to get it fixed? The functionality of the trackpad remains unaffected. I have attached a photo so you can see what i mean. I have also attached a photo of the opposite side of the trackpad (left side) to show the difference. Thank you

Hi there, hopefuly someone from Lenovo is reading this. After a month of fairly using my Yoga 710 one night my screen just would not turn on. I  connected it to TV via HDMI to find out if laptop works at all, and it did just fine, except the screen. So I brought it to my local  authorized service, to check it out. Surprisingly my warranty claim got denied because of mechanical damage - frame of the laptop is bent. Check the pictures. I contacted the reseler where i bought my laptop and they denied to replace my laptop because of the damage which is done by me as they suspect. Laptop was used less than 50 times at home while handling it carefully, there is no way i could bent the frame of my laptop. So Lenovo, any solutions to this?  Pics:https://imgur.com/a/LJzethttps://imgur.com/a/MurGb

A:Yoga 710 IKB 14 issues, black screen, bent frame, horrible experience

Hi kriscv,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
Seems that it fault on the LCD assembly due to the mechanical issue. It has been investigated by a Lenovo service center and that they have concluded that such is not covered by the hardware limited warranty as stipulated:
".. failure or damage resulting from misuse, abuse, accident, modification, unsuitable physical or operating environment, natural disasters, power surges, improper maintenance, or use not in accordance with product information materials"
 
This is also the same conclusion from the store of purchase so at similar cases, it is the user that covers the cost for repair for both parts and labor not unless that you have purchased additional accidental damage warranty. You can try calling in technical support in your region for their recommendation.

Hello Dws520Thanks for using the Lenovo forums.Was this the creators update?
If so, have a look on the following post, this should show if your device has been tested with the update yet:
https://support.lenovo.com/gb/en/solutions/ht503655
 
From what I can see, your unit does not seems to have made the list, which leads me to believe that this will be the cause of the issue, I would recommend that you revert back to the previous version of Windows, and observe if the fault still occurs or not.
 
Hope this helps, let us know how you get on.==================================================================================Did someone help you today? Thank them with a Kudo! If you find a post helpful and it answers your question, please mark it as an "Accepted Solution"!

I own a Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Yoga (1st gen as a Yoga; 4th gen as a Carbon), Product 20FQCTO1WW. Starting two days ago, it randomly reboots. The event log shows that it has had an unexpected reboot ("The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly."), but reading the events leading up to the reboot doesn't give me much of a clue as to why. The only interesting events are messages that a core of the CPU is being throttled ("The speed of processor X in group 0 is being limited by system firmware. The processor has been in this reduced performance state for 71 seconds since the last report."). I took the bottom cover off and agressively blew compressed air in every crevice. This did remove some dust buildup, but the system wasn't as dirty as I expected. In fact, it looked pretty clean. I also vaccuumed. And I removed the fan and thermal heatsink and throughly blew compressed air through it and made sure that there was no gunk clogging the heatsink air fins. After reassembling, it seems to be slightly more stable, but it has still rebooted a few times. There are lots of threads where people complain about fan noise and ask how they can reduce the speed of their fan. I'd like to run mine at max 100% of the time (noise be darned) for a few days just to see if that keeps the system from randomly rebooting.

On the surface, both the Yoga 910 and Yoga 920 look nearly identical, but in my testing, I prefer one over the other. Let's dig deeper to see the differences between the two!To get this out of the way, both machines have 1TB PCIe storage, 16GB memory, and the Yoga 910 has the 7th gen i7-7550U processor, and the Yoga 920 has the 8th gen i7-8550U processor. 
 
Hardware & Design
Both the Yoga 910 and Yoga 920 are built out of aluminum, which gives them a high quality feel to them.  Both laptops have the keyboard integrated into the chassis, which means less keyboard flex. One thing that I find better in the Yoga 920 is the fact that it's all smooth edges around.  The Yoga 910 has pretty sharp edges which means you could scratch your surface or yourself.  The sharp edges of the Yoga 910 was a common complaint, and I'm glad they rectified it.

Hello All, I have an issue with my YOGA 700 laptop when logged in multiple accounts simultaneously. Whenever an account is left logged on and the user is switched as opposed to logging off, the cpu usage ramps up very high with several RUNDLL32 processes being the culprit. I have checked the RUNDLL32 processes with Process Explorer and the command line are as follows:C:\Windows\system32\rundll32.exe C:\ProgramData\LenovoTransition\Server\x64\EnableAutoRotation.dll,RunCustomMonitor The directory is as follows: C:\ProgramData\LenovoTransition\Server\x64\ The only solution I have found is restarting the laptop. The problems comes back when again more than one user is logged in. Also, the rundll32 processes only run high cpu on one account at a time and there doesn't seem to be a preference for a specific account, all of them are plagued one at a time with the problem. Disabling the Yoga Mode Control service is a fix but that breaks the mode control which is essential in this laptop. I have tried installing all the available software on the Software page foor the YOGA 700. The rundll32 processes drain the battery very fast and I can't always log off other users when they have apps open!  I have posted a screenshot of process explorer showing 2 rundll32.exe processes using 25% cpu usage each. However, sometimes up to 4 rundll32.exe processes open up and they use combined 100% cpu usage, which makes the laptop run very hot and slow. In t... Read more

I have two staff members with different Yoga models, but with the same pen issue. Say, for instance, OneNote is open. The pen doesn't draw or write, but it can select and still be recognized. When I try using an old stylus from an HP Elitebook, it works TOTALLY fine - even the button on the pen functions properly. This suddenly started after months of the Lenovo pens working fine. I thought maybe it was a driver issue, but it can't be as the HP pen works.... I'm thinking it's the pen itself just getting worn down? It looks okay though but may be just a little loose... Any help / direction would be greatly appreciated!

I have a S3 Yoga 14 with i5-4210U Haswell CPU & GeForce 840M (Model# 20DM000VUS). I've searched and searched for any solution to upgrade the memory to 16GB, but seems only the Broadwell version can...so I'm stuck with 8GB.  I already upgraded to a 1TB Evo 850 SSD which did boost overall speed a lot, but running out of memory all the time is driving me nuts. So my question is, is it possible to swap out the whole motherboard to a i5-5200U Broadwell version without any HW/SW conflict issues so I could upgrade to 16GB?  Or can you only swap for the exact same MB?  It'd be a lot cheaper than buying a whole new Yoga w/dedicated graphics such as the P40 and way less hassle as long as I wouldn't need to reinstall Windows and everything. Thanks!

Disclosure:  I received these laptops from Lenovo as part of their advocacy program, so huge thanks to the folks over at Lenovo. I don't receive compensation for my review, and as always, all opinions are my own.  
 
The ThinkPad X1 Yoga is first modern ThinkPad that I've ever owned.  I?ve been using Lenovo?s Ideapad lineup for a very long time, and while I?ve used ThinkPads in the past, the X1 Yoga will be my first personal ThinkPad that I own.  So how does it stack up to the Yoga 910?  Let?s find out! I have the i7 UHD model of the Yoga 910 and the i5 FHD model of the ThinkPad X1 Yoga.  I tried out the latest Yoga 920, but I haven?t tried the latest X1 Yoga yet? hopefully, I will! 
 
Hardware & Design
Even though both laptops carry ?yoga? in their name, the hardware behind them is vastly different.  The ThinkPad X1 Yoga has the classic ThinkPad black design, which is made of a carbon-fiber hybrid for the top cover and a magnesium-PPS hybrid for the bottom cover.  The Yoga 910 has a similar design from the Lenovo?s Yoga lineup, with an aluminum build throughout.  
 
 
 
The ThinkPad only comes in two colors: classic black and silver; whereas the Yoga has a whole suite of colors to choose from, such as silver, copper, bronze, and even a few exclusive designs, such as the Vibe designs for the Yoga 920 and the Star Wars themed designs for the Yoga 910.

HiWhen a second user is logged on to my yoga 900 the cpu goes from 2-3% to about 30% and stays there. The fan spins up and makes more noise than acceptable.After disabling the service yoga mode control it does not happen anymore but it's a  pity to have to do without it. I have everything updated (windows 10 and bios) including the latest version of yoga mode control I can find: version 1.0.0.9 Is there a fix to this?

We bought four Yoga 370's model: 20JHS02C00 recently and are having issues with the inbuilt celular connections working fine, then just coming up with no SIM errors. They all have Sierra Wireless EM7430 and we install the latest driver (still 7.47.4743.0105 as at December 27) and they work fine using our Optus SIM's. However we have had two go from showing the Optus YES icon one minute, to No SIM the next. There's no drivers to roll back looking in device Manager, looking at the hardware logs only shows the original install logs, swaqpping in another Optus SIM or a Telstra SIM makes no difference, turning cellular off and on again does nothing either. One of them worked fine, only after re-imaging the machine and starting over from scratch, which we cannot keep doing. I've done the usual Googling of this issue but I've only seen one response to a Lenovo post, which was send it back for a SIM tray and system board replacement.

Hi My USB-C is not working anymore. As far as I can say it stopped working as I tried to charge my Yoga 370 with an USB-C charger for mobiles. (I was on holiday, the battery was running low and I did left my default charger at home.) As mobile chargers do have lower voltage, I assume that the USB-C port at my Yoga has somehow beed deactivated for security reasons. I tried to reinstall the drivers which didn't work. I do have an extended onside guarantee. What can I do? Many Thanks, Kind Regards Cedric
