Yoga 920-13IKB screen won't rotate

Q: Yoga 920-13IKB screen won't rotate

My laptop has stopped auto rotating the screen when flipping it into "tent" mode, also keyboard does not disable. I've updated drivers and that didn't help. Thought I saw something about a "facepalm" sensor setting but don't know how to enable it (if this is the problem).

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Hi everyone, Recently I've been having a strange issue with my X1 Yoga 2nd gen - I don't know what happened or when, but my screen doesn't automatically rotate any more based on orientation. Was wondering if you had any thoughts on how to fix this.

Hello, My brand new Yoga 730 is having issues with autorotation. Autorotate does not work in laptop, tent, or tablet mode. I have rotation lock turned off and have tried manually changing to tablet mode. I also tried reinstalling Yoga Mode Control to no avail. LCS sensor diagnostics yielded this report (screenshot attached), but with no explaination of what to do in order to fix it. I ran the tool twice, getting the same result both times. What should I do next?

Hey there, mnkiddo! 
 
Thank you for reaching our community forum! 
 
Just to confirm, did you install these Yoga Mode Control https://lnv.gy/2LAUQ9i and https://lnv.gy/2LAVq6Y in the Yoga 730? If yes, could you check if the YMC process is running the Task Manager? Please see image below. We're looking forward to your reply.

I am looking to upgrade my lenovo yoga 910 13IKB screen to one compatable with an active digitizer that is available with some of the newer models. From my understanding, as long as the form factor is the same(fits computer) and the connector is identicle it should be possible with just a torx driver. My finance's laptop is a generation newer (has digitizer pen) and seems to have the same dimensions as mine. Has anyone tried this or know if I am missing something? Thoughts?

Hello,If Docked-In Thunderbolt3 Docking with external Monitors, I can't rotate Screen on Yoga 370.I can rotate all screens, but not the built-in Yoga Screen. (Option is grayed-out).Only solution is to go to Screen-Settings and change Orientation.This is impractical, since windows has its button for this.As I found out, this made by manufacturer of graphic-card (Lenovo/Intel).Why does the manufacturer lock this function? You may ask what's the reason to rotate the Yoga screen, whyle docked-in and external monitors?At office I use an external Bluetooth Keyboard, Mouse, and two external Monitors docked at Thunderbolt Docking.In this configuration I use Yoga Screen for handwriting in Tablet Mode.To have an ultra thin handwriting tablet I want to rotate the Yoga Screen and rotate the Yoga. Perhaps Lenovo will un-Lock this function in next Firmware Release?(Why does Lenovo Lock functionality of windows this way and restrict use of their own products?)

I have a Yoga 3 Pro and my screen doesn't auto-rotate anymore. It used to work fine. I've done a lot of searching and reading and see that there should be an "auto" or "manual" rotation options in display settings, but I don't have that option. I'm running Windows 10 Home and windows is up to date and all of my drivers are up to date. Any suggestions for how I can get this working would be greatly appreciated!

I'm experiencing a very annoying blinking/flickering of the built-in 4K display.Have a look at this short video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vdd4UICu_T4On the movie it isn't nearly as bad as in reality. The flickering is only visible with a blue, dark gray or purple color background. White, red or black is fine. The issue appears to be independent of the OS - the same can be observed in Linux or even in the BIOS.It all started after I attached a second screen (FullHD 24 inch using Thunderbold->HDMI adapter) in Windows 10 (latest Intel display drivers as of January 26, 2018).Just after connecting the external display the laptop screen went gibberish but the external display worked fine. After disconnecting the screen and restarting the computer the blinking started. It looks like a problem with the refresh rate. The laptop display behaves like an old CRT display with a low refresh rate I found this procedure https://support.lenovo.com/pl/en/solutions/ht500364 in another thread and followed it but unfortunately it didn't help.  The computer is almost brand new (bought in December, top version i7-8550U, 16GB RAM, 1TB NVMe, 4K UHD display). Any help appreciated.

Constant problem since purchase. Clearly a widespread production problem with this model based on other forum posts. No solutions found on those threads. Replacement device visibly needed. Device is unusable. I have US warranty but I am now based in Ireland. Lenovo's production faults should not cost me time or money.

The moment I got this laptop, I was having palm rejection issue when I wrote in Microsoft One Note (I use it for school). I just dealt with it. Then it crashed one day and give me "inaccessible_boot_device" error.I was able to restore it to previous point through Windows 10 recovery. But then after the 3rd time of doing that, the restore point was not there anymore. Then I left the computer to run "automatic repair" at the Lenovo boot screen. That failed. So, I installed my own windows 10 version 1607 (I wiped the Lenovo recovery portion of the drive).Now the screen would not auto rotate in tablet mode and the keyboard and touchpad will not work once I go from tablet mode to laptop mode. I have to restart the computer for the keyboard and touchpad to work again. Lenovo tech suport spent 2 hours installing and uninstall updates and drivers. It still did not work. They said it was Microsoft's problem. Lenovo tech support gave up and told me to contact Microsoft. I has been trying to access Lenovo USB Recovery Center for the past month, but it has been down.

Hi, We're going to be deploying ~150 Yoga 260 laptops in the next month and I am working on getting them to image with SCCM.  We are imaging them with Windows 7 (unfortunately). I am able to image them and I install the Screen Rotation Utility -- http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/products/Laptops-and-netbooks/ThinkPad-Yoga-Series-laptops/ThinkPad-... -- through SCCM and it installs fine, but when I fold the computer into Tablet mode it switches to portrait mode and stays there and does not automatically rotate. This will persist through a reboot.  It will stay like this until I switch it back manually (Screen Resolution --> Landscape).   If I click the auto-rotate button icon in the system tray area it will also switch to portrait mode until I manually change it back. Also when folded into Tablet mode the trackpad will stop working all together until a reboot.  A USB mouse will still work fine. I thought there was maybe a sensor hub driver that might go along with the screen rotate utility, but I didn't see one listed on the driver page (http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/products/Laptops-and-netbooks/ThinkPad-Yoga-Series-laptops/ThinkPad-... I installed an old version that I used when deploying the Yoga 12 last year, but it still does the same thing. In addition when trying to install the Hotkeys software (http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/products/Laptops-and-netbooks/ThinkPad-Yoga-Series-...

Hello Community,I have a relatively new (3 weeks) Yoga 920. I frequently read PDFs and like to switch to tablet portrait mode. I am not quite sure when the following issue happened, but sometime in the last week or so the machine quit the automatic process when you physically put the machine in tablet mode. I had some digging around and found the ymc service was not running, I tried to start it, but I got this message. I made sure all "auto rotate" locks were off. I restarted the machine, to no avail, the service was still stopped. I repeated this process an extra time or two, no dice. I then reinstalled the ymc driver, no change. From here I decided a bios update may not hurt (currently on ver. 5NCN36WW), that didn't help. I tried restarting the machine while in tablet mode (manually toggled from the notifications area) this didn't work either. Additional symptoms: When manually put into tablet mode (via the toggle in the notifications area) then taken out of this mode, the mouse pointer will disapper and the trackpad appears not to be working. Putting the computer to sleep then waking it seems to fix this issue. This does not occur when using a wireless mouse. Has anyone found a fix for the screen/computer not translating into tablet mode when the machine is physically put into a tablet configuration? I believe the ymc service refusing to run, even after manually telling it to is the issue, but I have no idea on how to fix it. Thanks in advance,-Skyehawk

My Lenovo Yoga 920-13IKB is a 2 in 1 laptop running Windows 10 Home.  Meaning full Active S Pen and Touch screen.  After installing the Version  1909 update, it's Device Specifications (via Windows Settings) Pen and touch:  No pen or touch input is available for this display.    In Device Manager/Human Interface Devices, no HID Touch screen device or driver is available.  The Wacom Device cannot start.  I'm assuming because Version 1909 eliminated the pen and touch support. I ran a full restore of Win 10 Home (no pen or touch support found), ran a driver update scan via Lenovo.  It identified a "Touch Panel Pen Driver - 10" driver to be updated.  Update the driver and reboot and nothing has changed.  Start the Lenovo Pen Settings App and get a message that the Wacom Pen Driver is required.  Odd, since the Wacom Device won't start as stated above.  Follow the Lenovo Pen Settings link to download the Wacom Pen driver, install it, no change in functionality.  Same process before and after v1909 update with no Pen or Touch support.  It's barebones, no antivirus, firewall, anti-malware to get in the way. The machine came with a HDD partition of drivers but nothing identified as an HID touch screen.   Brett

I purchased this laptop about 6 months ago and it cracked right at the hinge for the screen. The touch screen no longer functions properly and the screen flickers black. The laptop has been treated with care the whole time and was never dropped or anything like that. This crack merely developed from using the laptop as intended. I called Lenovo customer service and they said the warranty did not cover physical damage. I asked to speak with a supervisor and she did not care at all that I had an unsatisfactory product. This laptop is either poorly designed or built with cheap parts if it can not withstand opening and closing the screen without cracking. I am very surprised that Lenovo is clearly not concerned at all with the quality of their products or customer satisfaction.

Hi...I am hoping to get some guidance on an issue that I am having.  We bought my daughter a Yoga 730 for college in July and she started experiencing issues with the screen flickering to the point she cannot use it except for in tablet mode.  In tablet mode she says it does not flicker at all but it is harder for her to use (and she honestly should be able to use it as a laptop also..that is why we chose the Yoga).  I purchased it via Amazon and their tech support sent links to update the BIOS etc. which my daughter has done but the flicker continues. My problem(s) are these 1) Get the flicker issue resolved.  Since it works fine in tablet mode it most likely is not a software issue and I have read quite a few posts online about the wire to the display being pinched but need someone who knows about these things to take a look at it and resolve the issue.  2) She is at college 13 hours away and needs to use her laptop on a daily basis for school.  The 13 hours means I cannot drive over to her dorm and take a look at it and her need to use it means she cannot go without a machine for long. If someone could provide some insight into how Lenovo typically handles these types of issues and what type of turnaround time she can expect?  There is a warranty place near where she is at school and that might help with the shipping time etc. but not sure. Thanks in advance....

Other days it just behave normally. This happens when i use my Yoga as a desktop with external screen, external mouse and external keyboard and only using external screen. Bob Johnston

Have you tried parts lookup and then Lenovo Encompass store?  Don't post you serial number online.  If you input at the parts lookup site you  should be able to confirm the part number.  I input just generic 920-13ikb at parts lookup.

I have been suffering with the screen flicker mentioned in a number of other posts.  However I have had the sense that it was not related to hardware.  The reason being that any moving of the screen or tapping of the screen joint would not cause any change in the flciker. I took the back off and tried the fix that is shown on YouTube but then a few days later the same issue was apparent. Then I caught that it seems to be related to Firefox.  A tab for BBC news had the flicker, a different tab did not. It also seemed to be related to only a section of the webpage that was open, as scrolling would stop the flciker.  Chrome on the same page did not flicker.  Even in window mode the Firefox tab flickered and would do so with Task Manager open. All drivers are current and all software up to date. I turned off the Hardware acceleration in Firefox and the tab was fine after.  That said I have seen the issue in another app so I wonder if it is a fault with using the video memory sharing or something like that.  Either way I wish Lenovo would be more proactive in trying to resolve the issue.

Good evening I am hoping that we as a community can get this issue solved. Lenovo must do a recall on the Yoga 730 for the very clear and apparent screen flicker problem that has affected 100s and possibly 1000s of people. This is an obvious design flaw that causes the hinge design to cause stress on the display cable attached to the motherboard. I have called Lenovo support but because the warranty is past (of course) they cannot do anything. If this was a random issue it would make sense. But since this is a very common issue that warrants some form of recall I must share my frustration as the Yoga 730-13IKB Laptop (ideapad) - Type 81CT is othewise a fine computer. Join me in calling for an official response from Lenovo so that they will fix this problem that is clearly their fault. Thanks
