Hi! I've got Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13 Silver (https://www.alza.cz/EN/lenovo-ideapad-yoga-13-silver-d375124.htm), and while I am quite content with the device, my keyboard stopped working. I was wondering whether any of you might know and suggest an online reseller (official or otherwise), where I could get hold of a replacement keyboard. Now, I suppose backlit keyboard versions of newer Yoga laptops will not work I guess, will they? From what I have read Yoga 13 Silver does not have the slot required for backlit, but aside that, will the keyboard function and will it fit (dimension-wise)? If so, what is the voltage and current required? Would soldering a small battery to the backlit cable be a good idea (I accept the fact that I wouldn't be able to regulate it)? Thank you in advance!ck

Hey there, I found a similar topic but unfortunately, there was not a final response that solved my problem. I own a Yoga 13 Ideapad without the backlight function, unfortunately. Recently I watched a video of a keyboard replacement and I would like to do that with mine in order to replace it with a backlight keyboard. The problem is that I am not sure if my model features the needed connections. The model number is: 219159342273 if that helps.  I found backlight keyboards described as "original" Lenovo parts for about 30?. Is that realistic or fake?Thank you for your help!!!

I recently did a Windows 10 update to my Lenovo Yoge Ideapad  11 S on July 16th and now my touch screen does not work. When I check the drivers for my monitor and touch screen I noticed the driver was missing. I cannot get Lenovo or Microsoft to fix this. What else can I do to get that driver back ?

A:Lenovo Yoga Idea Pad Yoga 11 S touch screen issue

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 recently ordered a Yoga 710 11 inch 2-in-1. I just read that the keyboard has been changed so that where the "SHIFT" key has been for 100 years on the right side of the keyboard, the page up and down keys  now are and it's extremely difficult to type? Is this true that they keys were moved to a non-standard configuration different from all computer keyboards?

Hi CGB1471 , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
As same from all other reviews : "the right shift key has been shrunk down to fit" . 
Similar discussion here and here about the same topic as users have success on using keytweak to remap it as a workaround specially for those that was accustomed using the right shift for speed typing.
 
Hope this help answer your query.

Hello,I've had this laptop for about 2 years and I've had problems with the keyboard. For some reason the Enter, Backspace and Spacebar keys work on and off, most of the time they never work then they work and then don't work again. I've tried enabling/ disabling sticky keys and filter keys, updating/reinstalling the keyboard driver and even a clean install of windows and nothing worked. My question is if it's possible to fix it? I bought a new keyboard for my laptop but is it even replaceable? Seems like you have to take the entire laptop apart to replace the keyboard.. Thanks ahead

Hi Lidor718,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
Yes it is possible to fix intermittent key failure. 
 
Checking with the hardware manual, there is no specific part number for just the keyboard alone as it shows that the keyboard is integrated on the upper case cover. Replacement is also a challenge as it shows the need to remove most parts out (as shown here on page 55).

The touchscreen keyboard comes up when I ask from the lower taskbar.  It sometimes comes up on some web sites and some entry areas. I have no problem with how it works right now. The device manager should not have a device that is not loading or have a driver that is corrupt.

I left it on sleep the night before.  After i restarted and remove my mouse from the laptop, it suddenly works again. My question is, is this showing some sign of malfunctioning keyboard?

So I booted my PC after an update the other morning and the keyboard and trackpad weren't working. I tested the brightness keys on my keyboard and they still worked so it couldn't be a hardware issue there, and my mouse still worked so it was just the trackpad that had something wrong with it. The trackpad has a driver error (code 10) but the keyboard says it's working correctly. Here's what I've tried in hopes to resolve the issues so far: -Reinstalling trackpad drivers -Uninstalling both trackpad and keyboard drivers then restarting -System Restore -Chkdsk on both drives -A trick I read on these forums where you flip the device into tent mode, then after a few seconds flip it back round to laptop mode. I am utterly confused as to what's wrong here as nothing has even slightly helped my problem.

Hi! I bought this one 2  days ago and I'm amazed how bad the keyboard is. Just check the video:https://youtu.be/n4oN6H3x2nQThe keyboard actually doesn't match the photos: enter key is weird form and there are two \ keys. Space key sticks depending on which part of it you click. It also makes a weird noise. Definitely not the quality you expect from a premium model. I would actually be happy to return it, but I'm in another country for a while so looks like I'm in trouble. This is the second Yoga I have, but seems that I will never buy a Lenovo again.

Yeah, you see a lot of complaings about those keyboards, they are trying to make them too thin in you ask me. I would return it if you do not like it, even if you have to pay shipping.   The Thinkpad line have much better keyboards, and in my opionion are far more durable too.  Good Luck,

So about a month ago I woke up one morning and went to use my yoga and discovered the halo keyboard was cracked and half it was unusable. I?ve never dropped or anything and it?s always been in a case not really sure what happened to it but the several times I?ve called the highly unhelpful customer service people they keep insisting that I dropped and refuse to give me an estimate of how long it would take to get it looked at if I sent it off or how much it cost and this is my tablet that I used to use everyday for my school work and now I?m managing with a kindle fire, but I?d like my yoga book back. The most that customer service has ever told me about sending in too is that I have to sent it to Kentucky, no instructions beyond that and absolutely no address ever given and it?s impossible to find on the website. I wanted to know if anyone else had this problem or at least even knows how to send it in for repairs. I?ve also only had it since November.

I have to restart the laptop everytime this happens. Then the keyboard works until I press any function combo keys.  I resinatlled the keyboard drivers and updated it. Still it is not working. Then I installed the lenovo vantage app, tried changing hot keys to straight function keys, even then the keuboard stops working and I had to do the reboot stuff. Is there a solution to this problem? what is the issue? as it happened from windows update, am doubting whether this is the update issue or is it the keys are making the entire keyboard locking.... seriously am not able to comprehend the root cause.

Hi all, I bought a Lenovo S1 Yoga. The shift key only works with certain keys but not other, important ones like T. It is extremely inconvenient and makes this laptop unsuitable for work. Characters like the semi-colon are completely unavailable on this laptop now. I have already read through quite a few forum posts to find the solution. I have tried using the device manager to uninstall the keyboard, have used Lenovo vantage to find the latest drivers and install them and have also tried turning all keyboard ease of access ommands off. Nothing seems to fix this issue. It seems to be a software issue, rather than Hardware as the shift key works with about half of the keyboard. It does not fix itself when working on the command prompt. Please could someone provide an adequate solution to this problem. Thanks,SZ

The laptop was in their office for 4 months, during which they couldn't order the part. I canceled the service and then tried the next year, and they said it is not available.I tried contacting them again, before few days, and after waiting for their response, they told me that the part is no longer available through the "Lenovo Service Canal".  Does that mean I have no chance of ever repairing my keyboard unless I take it off a used laptop?The serial number of the laptop: CB34360394,required part:  90205188_S, ZIVY0 Upper Case BK W/KB-SLVN.The image attached is one of plenty images I received from the authorised support.

I initially was getting by via the on screen keyboard until I began borrowing an external wireless one. The following is what I knowReset to factory settings did not work.Optimizing OS in BIOS is enabled already (enabling this was suggested by Lenovo Support)THE ARROW KEYS WORK IN BIOS (??!???!?)An external keyboard works (I have used two different Logitech keyboards and both work)Before I sign in, FN+Space seems to work thus (re)activating my backlight. Once I sign in, it stops working.There's no updates for the keyboard driver.I have already tried to uninstall the driver, restart the laptop, and allow it to reinstall the driver.Disabling ymc did not help.F6 does not re-enable the touchpad.I tried a couple button combinations I've seen around for people disabling/enabling keyboards, but none worked. (Willing to try more though!!!) Any ideas? I thought it may be a hardware problem, but since the arrow keys work in BIOS; I'm not confident that this is the case.
