Thinkpad Yoga S1 USB ports loose contacts?

Q: Thinkpad Yoga S1 USB ports loose contacts?

Sinca a year or so, I got more and more often a problem with all my USB-Ports. If I use a cable to connect e.g. an arduino, I very often loose the USB-connection (I sometimes get the Win sound for connecting or diconnecting). If I slightly move the cable, I can sometimes cure the problem. But since a few weeks, this is seldom the case. I can not remember that I have these prblems with usb-sticks and usb hdds, but can not guarantee that this is true. I bought the laptop because I thought this would be a good investment and that I will be able to use it for a few years. I do not have these problem on cheaper and older Laptops and PCs. The cables are definitely OK. Does anyone have an idea how to fix this problem? Thanks!

In my old laptop, the USB ports had become loose as in they won't hold a USB plug in place. When I bought my new Dell XPS 15z laptop, the USB ports were really tough and required a but of pushing to get a USB plug in, now after a year or so of use they are softer but still "hold" whatever is inserted in them.

What can I do to prevent the USBs from becoming loose?

The only prevention I know of that works is never using them.

Hi, I have a 2 months old USB modem which i use to connect to internet. I have an HP netbook(1 month old) and a Samsung laptop(2 months old) on which i use the USB modem.

Now this USB modem Huawei EC150 has an issue, it fits a bit tightely in the USB ports and takes a little extra effort to plug it in. After two months of usage it has loosened up the USB ports on both of my new laptops. Now the USB modem plugs in easily on both the machines but the ports have become bit too loose for other devices.
Now i am wondering if this will eventually cause the USB ports to become too loose and cause other devices to dangle too much and cause loose connections to the computer.
As of now this is not too much of an issue cause i have not had loose connections with other devices except for an old pen drive.
If this can be an issue in future, is there an easy way to fix this? Or will i have to just visit the service centres to get the ports replaced. I read on some forum that we can bend the small clips or notches (whatever you would call them) inside the USB connectors on laptops to make them tighter again.
I suppose its the USB modem that is the culprit here, have never had such an issue with any USB device on my old desktop that i don't have with me now..
Please help..........
 

A:Solved: USB ports going loose.......

A usb is a set of 4 rails, all of which need to be on the corresponding 4 rails on the usb drive. Weak bondage, more and more likely to loose connection. You could use some pliers to bend in (squeeze) the usb ports, though no usb device should be bending the ports in the first place.

This is probably an extremely nit-picky post but I was wondering if any other P50 owners are experiencing any "play" or wiggle room with their 3.5mm headphone jack when a headset is plugged in. I notice on mine that when I plug in my headphones, the connection itself is solid however, it seems that the outer casing of the jack between the outerbody of the laptop have space in between causing the casing to move in between.  So far I haven't seen any issue with the functionality of the jack itself but I'm a little concern that the jack might be loose somewhere inside which might cause it to fail prematurely.

Hello,  I recently had a problem with my Thinkpad S440 that I purchased 1,5 year ago. At some point it was not able to boot up for no apparent reason. As the warranty was no longer valid I had it expertised. The expertise showed that the screws on the hard drive were loose and one of them started to move inside of the laptop, causing a short circuit on the motherboard.Anyone ever had that problem ? Any idea on what I should do ?It seems to me that it is a huge problem of fabrication which I would not be able to avoid by myself... Sorry for my bad english and thank you for your answers.Cheers.

I posted a similar question earlier and people referred me to the Yoga (much appreciated).  However, I was interested in the 2.6 lb carbon version with touch screen capabilities.  Asus has a Spin 7 model that is very good at 2.65lb, but I miss the red mouse toggle in the middle of the keyboard and Asus's track pad was designed too large....causing unintended tapping.  The Yoga, while nice, is heavier than I was looking for.  The 14 inch screen is about 3.3lb? the 12 inch at 3? I thought that some of the earlier Thinkpad Carbons had touch screen and was hoping they would make a return soon.  Thanks,

Is it normal for some of the hinges to be slightly loose on the yoga 900? I wasn't sure since not all of them are loose. Also, I have one of the caps on the edge loose as well which I can take off and put back on (without it falling off easily). Not sure if it's worth sending it in... still on warranty. There is no cracking sounds etc. though and it is working properly.

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...

Hi
Welcome to the forums.
 
I do not have that kind of pen, but I think is the one that has some "bronce contacts" at the top of the pen. I had read some other post about it, just in case check that "contacts" to make sure they are touching with the charger when you put the pen into it's holder. Sometimes the contacts may move.

Just curious, why is the new Thinkpad X1 Yoga I7, 16 GB RAM, 1 TB SSD, FHD about $1,000 more than the similarly equipped commercial Lenovo 910? 
 
Is it the ThinkPad brand name? The eraser nubbin? The 2 combined?

I've got a friend who needs a new laptop. She likes the touch/fold aspect of my 1st gen Thinkpad X1 Yoga. Do you all think she would be happy with the commercial Yoga 910? 
 
Any real reason to get the new plain FHD ThinkPad X1 Yoga instead of the similarly equipped commercial Yoga available at Best Buy besides spending an extra $1000 for the ThinkPad brand name?
 
I've owned 6 various ThinkPads since 2011 FWIW. I get it, they're cream of the crop. But I kinda got sticker shock when I just priced out a plain FHD (and we need nothing more) X1 Yoga. About  $2,800, wow!

A:Why is the ThinkPad X1 Yoga $1,000 more than a similar Yoga 910?

@Jelks, The biggest difference I see between the X1 Yoga (2nd) and the Yoga 910 is active pen support which seems to be missing from the 910. You could use a capacitive stylus, but expect fingertip resolution, not pinpoint, and no pressure-sensitivity. Fewer USB ports: no HDMI or MicroSD; no Thunderbolt. No TPM module, if you need to store encrypted creditials, e.g., for BitLocker. Not sure about battery life; they claim up to 9 hours of local video for the 910 vs. up to 15 of MobileMark for the X1. Not an apple-to-apple comparison. You're not going to get the (soon to be patched, at least for now) security hole that is Intel's vPro management tech. You may not get Windows 10 Pro, possibly just Home (but you could always give Microsoft the money to upgrade if you need BitLocker or Remote Access). You're not going to get all the "mil-spec" design and testing etc, but if it's a personal machine, you're probably going to avoid abusing it. As you suggest, the "wave" keyboard -- including the trackpoint "eraser nubbin" -- is definitely going to be more expensive on the ThinkPad than the plain Yoga keyboard. I used two generations of ThinkPads (T61p and W520), but about 3 years ago I switched to a Dell XPS 13. A year or so ago, I ordered a X1 Yoga 1st gen for my wife and she likes it very much, so I am pretty familiar with the design and capabilities. TLDR: I think most people would be happy with the 910 vs. X1 unless they want the active pen. Als...

I just bought a Thinkpad Yoga from Best Buy and upon opening, found that the pen pro included does not work. I'm on the most updated version of all the drivers, and the touch screen and multitouch with my hands still work. After taking an multimeter to measure the voltage of the pen, I found that the pen just wasn't charging. I'm a bit hesitant to check the voltage of the charging silo itself but my suspicion is that the pen is dead. Could this be a software problem? Has anyone encountered a similar problem? Should I return to pen and the laptop to bestbuy or just the pen? Or should this issue be brought to Lenovo instead?

I don't have a 460, but I do have a 260, which is a smaller, but VERY similar machine.  I had the same problem and I believe it is not the pen.  Before you do anything, you need to unplug the machine and disable the internal battery.  You do that by going into the BIOS and under the config tab, look under power.  There will be an option to disable the battery.  When this is selected, the machine will turn off.  The battery is re-enabled the next time you plug it in.  IF THE BATTERY IS NOT DISCONNECTED, YOU WILL CREATE A SHORT AND BLOW A IRREPLACEABLE FUSE ON THE MOTHERBOARD.  Remove the pen and look inside, where you will see 2 contacts.  My guess is that one or both got pushed back into the housing during manufacturing process.  You can take something fine and sharp like a needle and gently free them so they will pop back out.  Once I popped mine out, the pen charged very quickly and I never had another problem with it.

It all started 3 days ago.

I am using a Lenovo Thinkpad R61i 8932-GCU with Windows Vista 32bits Business Edition (SP2).

Suddenly, the USB ports stopped working

I checked the Device Manager but everything was fine with the USBs. However, the Teredo Tunnelling PseudoInterface had this little yellow triangles. (Status: This device cannot start - code 10). When I tried to disable it, to see if there was any conflict, the Microsoft Management Console (MMC) became unresponsive.

That same night, Windows Update also became unresponsive while installing an update for the Ricoh SD card reader. When I tried to disable the SD card reader, the MMC crashed again. I tried to uninstall the USB drivers from the Device Manager...MMC crashed again.

I have tried another Windows Update, but it also became unresponsive while trying to create a Restore Point.
After reading this thread, showing how to isolate the problem using msconfig, I made a clean boot by disabling all non-Microsoft services. The USB worked but the MMC became unresponsive again when I tried to disable the card reader. The provided link doesn't show what to do when the problem is with some Microsoft service
I would really appreciate some help on those issues

Thanks in advance

.PS:
1) The system came pre-loaded with Vista, so I don't have any CD
2) I have tried to use system restore, but it also failed

Got Thinkpad Yoga 260 delivered today. Haven't turned it on yet and was checking it out. Lifting it up and slightly shaking produces rattling noice around the right hand side hinge. It's either hinge itself making that sound or inside the laptop around top right corner. Any ideas on what that might be and how to possibly fix it? Should I just consider sending it back to get fixed instead? Thanks. Edit: I suspect it could actually be a right bottom corner of the LCD right over Yoga 260 imprint where the rattle is.

Does anyone know if itis possible to do the following:When connected to the Onelink dock, closing the lid will NOT turn off/standby laptop. I know there is the option on the power settings to choose not to do anything when the lid is closed, but that is not so ideal when we have the laptop connected to the wall and not the dock... So the idea is if it is possible to make it ignore closing the lid only if the dock is connected, Thank you. Ricardo Santos.

Hi, After working out that my laptop (Thinkpad Yoga S1) most likely has a digitizer, I purchased a pen for it. However, since I wasn't 100% sure, I bought a cheaper, off-brand pen that people said was compatible, the listing for which can be found here. I received it today, but my computer seems unresponsive when I try to use it. When I went to Wacom Pen or Pen and Touch Input, the pen calibration screens were either blank (Wacom) or didn't load (Input). Is there something else I have to do to make my pen work? Did I purchase the wrong pen? If it helps, the pen slot on my computer is still plugged; I was going to unplug it, but to do so I'd have to remove the back paneling, and one of the screws keeping it in place has been stripped. The thread confirming that my laptop has a digitizer is here.Thanks!

Hi
 
Please notice that this is my personal opinon and it does not mean I'm 100% right, this is based on my experience.
 
I think that the "Digitizer PEN for Lenovo ThinkPad X60 X61 X200 X201" is for older Thinkpad models. I have a Thinkpad Yoga 14 (Similar to S1) (20DM008UUS) and it has a digitizer screen, but it requires an "active pen" (with batteries inside) to be able to work with the digitizer.
 
I have the Thinkpad Pen Pro and it works fine with my model. I still think you have a digitizer on your laptop but I think it is the wrong pen.
 
Here it also some more info about the pen that Amy wrote.
 
Regards.
