Thinkpad Yoga 260 keyboard breakdown

Q: Thinkpad Yoga 260 keyboard breakdown

My keyboard on my Tinkpad Yoga 260 is deteriorating - key by key, stops working - I have to to hit them extremely hard to get it to work - more and more keys work like this. I've tried to call support over and over again and before I reach a person the menu system hangs up - over and over again. I'm desperate and fedup. Its only one year + old. Yes I use it a lot and I've only had thinkpads since 2003. This is the worst Thinkpad product I've had - that is - all the others have been great. I believe the whole keyboard must be exchanged, after only one year - key by key stops working!!! And I cannot get hold of support. Please anybody out there with some good advice. Spent a fortune on this machine - have to find a solution. Thanks in advance for help.

Hello, I have a ThinkPad Yoga S1. The keyboard sometimes becomes unresponsive, while the external keyboard still works fine. The keyboard revives after going to sleep mode. I have had this issue since the beginning (2 month ago). The fact that it still works fine with the external keyboard incriminates the driver. But all drivers are up to date. (I made all the updates I could find.) And in the device manager, the status reads « This device is working properly ». Anyone else having the same issue, ... and its solution? Thanks,JC

Hi Jc-createlli,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
As per the query we understood that you are facing issue with keyboard not working when system is on sleep mode on your ThinkPad Yoga S1.
 
Go to device manager and under keyboard adapter uninstall all the adapter and restart the system and check.
 
Run ThinkVantage system update utility and update all the drivers and application from that.
 
Hope this helps.
 
Best regards,
Hemanth Kumar

Hi There, Can you please check with Lenovo Sales Team if there is absolutely NO way to purchase a ThinkPad X1 Yoga machine in Italy with OS and Keyboard en-US. We are long time DELL customers and you give us no option to test Lenovo products. Programmers need keys available on the en-US keyboard and there are so many programmers outside U.S. Please ask somebody of Sales Team to contact me to see if something can be done. Thanks. Alberto

Hey everyone, Recently bought this laptop. Loving everything about it. However, I did a fresh install of Windows 10 (it wasn't an upgrade from Win8.1, but rather a new install of Win10 after I replaced the harddrive to a 1TB SSD). Since then I've reinstalled everything I could get from the site. Every Lenovo driver set and utility. Updated the BIOS. Consulted the Solution Center. Ran scans from the utilities and the site. I've literally tried EVERYTHING that's obvious, and I can't get the backlight to come on at all. When I first received the laptop with the old harddrive, the backlight worked just fine. Since I put in the new SSD with a fresh install, I cannot for the life of me get it to turn on. Pressing Fn+SPACE gets it to show the little icon on screen that it's SUPPOSED to be turned on, but it isn't on. So I'm at a loss here. I sincerely doubt it's a hardware issue, because literally the only thing that's changed is the harddrive. If there's a specific driver for the keyboard backlight, I'd love to know about it. Thanks in advance!

Hi. welcome to the forum.
 
Do you want to try out something just to check that the keyboard light is working?
I have a TP Yoga 14 here and when I access the BIOS the keyboard lights up when I press "FN+Space", give it a try if it works for you.
 
I do not know if it requires an special driver, but I'm using the Windows 10 that was updated over the Win8.1 that came included.
 
The other things that cames to my mind is trying to boot other OS from the USB and see if the keyboard lights up.

Hi community, please your support Today I start my laptop and a BIOS message appears warning to update the date and time, I accessed to the setup and the date and time was changed to 01/01/2001 and time 00:00:00, I updated to today July 21t, 2018 8:12pm. I saved the configuration and boot continues.  Apparently the problem was solved and Windows 10 started. Now I have the following problem: It is not possible to use the keyboard in a regular basis, 2 letters by second, I have to wait 2 seconds to enter a letter, if I enter the letters a litle faster some of them are missed and the words and phrases are incomplete. Please need your feedback, I can not use the keyboard as I used to, as a reference, to write this message took me almost 30min,very frustrating Many thanks in advance for your comments and solution proposals Jose CollantesMexico

Writing from my PC, as of over a month ago my brand new ThinkPad had the latest windows update and turned into a worthless unproductive screen and touchpad system. I have waited on updates and since then the BIOS, some hotkeys and other keyboard related drivers have been updated. All related drivers have been re-installed all up-to-date etc. Though currently the following things occur when typing, when pressing:"backspace key" once= replace last key with a y"backspace key" hold= replace last key with a y and keep placing y's"n" key= adds a space before every n typed so it would look like le novo"y" key once= nothing happens"y" key hold= places y's"j" key= types out "<j"Spamming letters: random fn keys are activated, eg sound brightness etc."=" key= the "°" degree symbol"-" key= "/" And many more examples like this, basically have no clue what to do; I've called Lenovo and the store I bought it from; both replied that I had to wait for updates though I am not really counting on that being a solution anytime soon so I would hugely appreciate your time in providing a solve for my problem! Thanks for your time, Andreas

Hi, I just bought a ThinkPad Yoga 460 and I have a strange problem. The internal keyboard does not work any more across operating systems, so this isn't software specific. However, the keyboard *does* work in the beginning a cold start until the operating system boots - I can enter the BIOS settings, navigate around there, I can enter the onboard diagnostics utility, everything works fine - until an operating system boots. If I just reboot without turning the computer off, the internal keyboard doesn't work. I even restored factory settings, so I am writing this from an Ubuntu Live USB with an external keyboard until I have figured out how to restore EFI, but the keyboard still isn't working. The problem occured after a long time of using only the external keyboard, so I can't exactly tell what I was doing when it happened. I'm guessing it has to do with the rotation sensor being stuck, but what would be the point of disabling the keyboard if it's physically impossible to press any buttons in tablet mode... Also, the touch pad keeps working anyway. I removed Windows from the laptop and I don't think there'd be an easy way to get it back, so I hope any solutions would work on Linux too. Best regards,Malte

I have a problem with my Thinkpad Yoga 460 which started to occur about 2 weeks ago. Sometimes after bootup the keyboard does not work when I have to supply my passphrase for the hard disk encryption. The solution I have in this situation is to turn the battery of in the UEFI setup. Then pressing the power button for 10 seconds and then enabling the battery again with the power cable. This works reliable to fix the issue, but it is very annoying and when I am at the university there is no socket to enable the battery again. Is something broken or is there a workaround for this issue?

I have tried updating ultranav drivers, resetting windows 10 (which was a bit of a pain given that I will now have to reinstall all my software) and then reverting to windows 8.1 after none of the above worked. Fortunately my touchscreen and mouse support is still ok, but I can't work in low light conditions without my keyboard light.

Hello Everyone! I have scoured the chats and have not seen a resolution for a partially working keyboard. I have a 3-yr old Thinkpad Yoga (20CD00B1US) running windows 10 (Computer was installed with 8.1). The 10 install was done months ago. Yesterday, part of my keys (entire qwerty row, Shift keys, Enter Key, Ctrl keys, and the Tab key just to name a few) decided to stop working. Note that the online keyboard functions fine, hence why I can type this message. I am unable to go to Bios because all the keys needed are not functioning and I do not have access to an external keyboard. This is my only only computer in the home. I have tried the following: 1. Fn+k =lock screen to see if that was enabled. 2.Accessed my accessibily menu to see if the keyboard screen had unneccessary toggles. Nothing is toggled. 3. Downloaded Talent Driver to see if I had outdated drivers. I have 2. Intel HD Graphics Family in 20.19.15.4549; and, Touchpad Synaptics Pointing in 19.3.4.86, although I am not sure how these will help with the keyboard issue. Please note, I can not go into BIOS because the necessary keys are not functionin. With this information, can anyone discern if this is a software or hardware issue. This will let me know if I can fix myself or take it to a certified Lenovo repair place. Thanks from Minnesota!!

Hi
Welcome to the forums.
 
I'm not sure what can be the issue, but can you try checking the "Lenovo Settings" application to check if your keyboard backlight turns on?
?
The Lenovo Settings is on the Windows Store , but you also need to install the Dependecy Package.
 
But just checking the support site I found there is a BIOS update that says:
(1.08)
- (Fix) Fixed an issue that "Fn + Space" cannot control KB backlight after exit shipping mode.
 
Please double check if this is your model support site. Maybe you should apply that BIOS update too.
 
I hope this helps.

My new model 20FY0002US Thinkpad Yoga 14 developed a problem with the keyboard. When switching from tablet to laptop screen rotation I heard a CLICK and the right side of the lift-and-lock keyboard got stuck. The button to the right of the delete key remains fully extended no matter the screen rotation and the keys on the right side dont work well. Basically they remain recessed because the interstitial plastic does not retract. Likewise the extended button prevents the screen from closing fully on the right side. Is this something that is fixable for a handy user or should I be returning the laptop to the retailer? Sadly i cannot afford to be without a computer for the time it would likely take to ship it in for repairs. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have a ThinkPad Yoga 14, which has a keyboard backlight that can be turned on and off by pressing Fn+Space. Recently I've found that if I turn it off, it sometimes stays on. In this state it will flicker when the computer is tapped or bumped, or just moved around, and when placed at certain angles it will stay off. If I turn it on, it stays on consistently ? it's only when it's set to off that it doesn't work right. It seems like there must be a loose connection in there or something. Does this sound like something that can be easily fixed?

Hello Lenovo Forum, I installed Xubuntu on my Thinkpad Yoga 14 and one day I tried to poke around and click the mouse button during boot time. Then I had the magical on-screen virtual keyboard popping up on the GRUB menu. You can see a photo of the on screen virtual keyboard here: http://imgur.com/p6JUrQr I also give a video showing how to activate the keyboard: Basically, clicking left mouse button (either the one on the trackpoint or an external mouse can work) will bring up the virtual keyboard. You need to touch it quickly, because every time any content on the screen changes (in this video, that is the countdown which refreshes every second) the keyboard will disappear. Touching the a key on the Virtual keyboard is equivalent to pressing the corresponding physical key. In this video I clicked Down Arrow, Up Arrow and Enter and booted Xubuntu. The Keyboard shows only in the GRUB Menu, as far as I have tested. It does not pop up in BIOS even if you click the left mouse button in BIOS. Is there a more detailed description of this Keyboard available? I searched "Thinkpad Yoga 14 virtual keyboard grub" but got no useful results, so the Keyboard looks like a secret, an easter egg or some maintenance mode to me. Personally I think this keyboard will make it very convenient for those who use the Yoga in tent mode / presentation mode / tablet mode and need to reboot across Linux and Windows and have no external USB keyboard and do not want to co...

I have a Yoga Thinkpad 14 which was purchased on Jan 6 2016 from Lenovo. So the thinkpad is still under warranty. Lately, I have been experiencing random shutdowns and keyboard lockups. I am just browsing as normal. This used to be fine but not is problematic. I'm receiving 3-4 shutdowns a day. The battery is fully powered and it doesn't matter if the power cord is attached or not. It's not a sleep issue or lid closing issue. It just happens to lockup or shutdown and I don't know when it will do it. I ran the LSC diagnostics and everything was fine. No error codes. I think this might be a hardware issue as no new software or hardware has been loaded and it's been ok for 6 months until now. I can submit a service request but before I do that, are there any suggestions ?

Hello Community,Please help me with this issue that frustrates me. I try to? ?re-install Linux (Manjaro) on my Lenovo X1? ?Yoga? (?1? ?Gen?) ?as dual boot? (?Win10?) ?after SSD replacement.I can boot UEFI? ?from a USB flash drive.? ?Linux life USB ?boots without issues only that after boot has finished the notebook keyboard and touch pad does not work.? ?The touch screen is working.Linux and Win10 were working without issues prior to the HW change (SSD card, followed by motherboard, screen and keyboard).Win10 works and Linux at Grub level works, however after boot the keyboard and touchpad does not. What I did:Started Windows10 , rebooted need to press F12 to get to boot order, selected USB HDD, booted.Same result. Can use the keyboard in selecting of e.g. driver free or nonfree; and then start the boot process. After boot, only touch screen works, keyboard and touchpad are not working (that is the same for current and earlier Kernel Linux versions ( tested Manjaro (Arch), Mint (Debian), Puppy (Ubuntu), Solus). What could I do next to troubleshoot this issue which must be software related. Thank you for your interest in helping me. Kla

Hello,I have an annoying issue with my X1 Yoga: almost every time I put it in tablet mode, the key covergets a bit stuck around some keys and I need to press them a lotharder to get an input.It usually gets stuck either around arrow keys, spacebar, X and C. It's currentlystuck on the spacebar and I'm having a hardtime typing this message.It usually gets a bit betterif I put it back in tablet mode and help itgodown while getting it back to "laptop" mode, but it doesn't completely solve it.Does any of you have this issue? How do you solve it? Do I need to send it to a repair center? Thank you. P.S: I deliberately didn't correct any typing mistakes the keyboard mademe do so you know how annoying it is. It makes me want to throw it out of thewindow.

I was having responsiveness issues with the trackpad for a while, then, i open my laptop one day and it's completely unresponsive, as well has the backlit keyboard not working (the hotkey still pops up that it's "lighting up" the keyboard, but no actual lights) and the trackpoint being completely unresponsive too. I've tried:- Restarting computer- Using Lenovo's various "fixing" softwares- Looking for a keyboard firmware shortcut for enabling/disabling trackpad, (doesn't exist on this computer)- Re installing drivers (Ultranav driver refuses to install manually, "driver installation failed")- Booting on a non microsoft OS (Booted on a linux Mint installation and it still doesn't work)- Booting into BIOS and looking for "enable/disable trackpad option", That option does not exist for me.- Opening up computer and checking the physical connection, All plugged in fine. When i open the device manager in windows there is no entry for the mouse whatsoever. The touch screen and the pen both work fine. I think it all points towards a hardware issue, i can pick up another trackpad on ebay for pretty cheap, but obviously i'd like to make sure that it would actually solve the issues.  The major confusion for me is that why would faulty trackpad hardware stop the backlit keyboard from lighting up? How are the two linked? Any ideas appreciated, Thanks!
