Yoga 900 - Screen is not turning and doesn't ask me to change in tablet modus

Q: Yoga 900 - Screen is not turning and doesn't ask me to change in tablet modus

Hello,I already tried the search function but couldn't find a solution. When I flip the screen 180° arround (tabletmodus) or just the V-Modus, it doesnt ask me anymore if i want to change. It should ask because in settings it is on "ask before ...". I need to do it manual.But the biggest problem is that the screen is not turning anymore. The button on theside is not working as well as the settings in the Lenovo settings, in Lenovo settings it is always on Screen turning LOCKED, when I set it to UNLOCK, it will jump back to LOCKED by itself. (made a screenshot from this setting) I have no idea what to do please help.Thanks

Dear Lenovo-Community,my Thinkpad S1 Yoga change into tablet modus not only when I fold back the monitor but also when I have closed the lid normaly and than reopened it or sometimes by slightly moving the monitor or a minor percussion of the table. That is very annoying, because than I have no access to keyboard or touchpad while beeing in the laptop-shape. I can revive keyboard/touchpad by folding back the monitor and than back to the normal laptop shape, but this works only one time! After that I have to send the thinkpad in the energy saving mode and wake it up, to get keyboard/touchpad back.I think it is a problem with the sensor, but does there a software setting exist so keyboard/touchpad keep unlocked in tablet-modus? Or a way to switch off the tablet-modus completely? I can live without the tablet-modus and the thinkpad is probably too old to be worth a great repair.My system is fully updated. Any idea out there?

I just bought a Lenovo Yoga 500 but id doesn't detect the different modes. It changed only two times but then it didn't change back. Does anyone know how to fix this?

A:Yoga 500 doesn't switch to tablet mode

Hi Heck,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Forums.
 
Windows 10 is definitely better designed to be used in table mode and switch between a table mode and computer mode use. Despite that I expected some learning curve, I found that the Windows 10 environment is immediately very intuitive to use. When in Windows 10, you can access the table-mode settings by navigating to Windows 10 Settings > System > Tablet Mode.
 
?

 
Also, Turns out there is a screen lock position button on the side. You might have pressed it by accident....that's what I did.
 
Let us know how you get on.
Regards,
Shashi

Hi everyone! I have an issue with my X1 yoga. When I turn back the lid, the laptop remains in computer moder and doesn't automatically change to tablet mode. In the settings, I've already chosen "Always switch to tablet mode". When I first got the laptop, the tablet on and off switch was very smooth when I turn back/front the lid. But after a few months use, it malfunctions... So I wonder if any software will block the function? Thank you for your help in advance!

I use a Lenovo Miix tablet as a "kiosk". The tablet hangs on a wall, and never goes to sleep - but it turns off the screen after 1 minute inactivity. Touching the screen should light it up immediately.

All this worked wonderfully with Windows 8.1. After the move to Win10, touching the black screen does not light it up. It seems that Win10 puts the tablet to sleep, although the power options are clearly set to "Sleep: NEVER".

I wonder whether others have experienced this buggy behavior, which is inconsistent with previous Windows versions, and whether there is a workaround.

many thanks in advance

A:tablet going to sleep instead of turning off screen

The power toggle options seem to have a bug, nice how this made it into final build, huh? I already noticed this before on insider build and reported it about a two months ago. Another version of this bug is, that for example if you set monitor off to never and sleep to x minutes, the tablet stays on forever, and never goes to sleep.

Welcome in Windows as a (never-ending) beta.

I have factory reset my yoga 3 pro numerous times and I can never get the keyboard to disable in tablet mode. Furthermore, the laptop should automatically switch to tablet mode when flipping the screen into tent mode, etc but it doesn't. Also, the laptop never is able to auto-rotate vertically.  I have followed the instructions on the lenovo site by keeping lenovo harmony and one key optimizer but that solution never works. Recently I have noticed that the screen brightness key doesn't work properly either. I use the dimming keys and they either make the screen the highest level of brightness or the lowest but no level in-between. I have factory reset this laptop so many times. I feel like some of the original programs that came with the computer could be interfering or Lenovo just doesn't bother to keep the software up to date...

Hi, My yoga 710 screen is not turning on and is completely black. I have tried holding the power button for 15 seconds until I hear the laptop fan. However, that has not helped.  The keyboard light still turns on and I can turn it on and off when I need to. The laptop is still able to charge but I  have also disconnected the charger when I have attempted to power it on. Still does not work.  There has been a few issues with it in the past such as the laptop restarting when I take it off my table or move it slightly.  The laptop is approximately 18 months old.  Any help will be appreciated.

I have a basic model of the YOGA 300 (11 BY).  Due to size limitations of the eMMC drive, I couldn't upgrade to windows 10 (not enough disk space). So I downloaded the windows 10 installer/ISO to a 32gb SD Card, and upgraded from there.. actually (probably a mistake in retrospect) I did a clean install.. Windows 10 runs with no problems, and I downloaded./installed all the Lenovo drivers for windows 10 for this machine. Unfortunately I now have two issues: 1. When I flip the screen into tablet mode, the laptop doesn't seem to realise, and so I don't get the auto-tablet mode that I would expect? 2. Even with all the Lenovo drivers for this machine installed, I do not get any touch-screen response at all.. only mouse driven. Any help would be appreciated. P.S:  Anyone with the same version of YOGA 300 with an eMMC who wish to gain more drive space?  You can buy a cheap USB 3.0 slimline USB disk (because the SD Card sticks out a bit) and create a VHD which gives you a second "real drive"... this was particularlly useful when wanting to store my dropbox/onedrive sync locations!

I have a Yoga 14 (Type 20FY) running Windows 10 64-bit, and my screen works fine in notebook, stand, and tent mode, but turns off the second I rotate it past tent mode and into tablet mode. I heard this may be related to a (relatively) recent Windows 10 update, but I honestly don't know. My computer is out of warranty and I have no income at the time, so I'd love to be able to fix this without taking it to a professional.

Hi there! My 2 month old yoga 720 occasionally does this weird thing, when turning the screen from laptop mode to tablet/stand, and back. The screen sometimes glitches out with grey stripes vertically filling the whole screen, or it just might go black. It seems like a bad connection to the mb or something, so the opening or closing of the screen twists or yanks a wire or something. This is of course irritating and now I'm not overly confident in using the laptop to it's fullest potential, fearing that I'll break something. So is there any self remedy for the issue, or can I open the machine and check if something is pinched or something? Specs:Make: YOGA 72015IKBType: 80X7BIOS: 4MCN25WWV1.10

Hi everyone, I have an almost 2-year Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro Ideapad, and recently I lost the original charger, so I started using an Innergie universal charger which never really worked that well to begin with. Anyway, the other day, I came home from work and plugged it in to charge overnight, and didn't need it until yesterday. When I went to use it yesterday, the only response I could get from it was the light by the power button to turn on, and even then only when it was plugged into the universal charger. I didn't get any other lights - no keyboard lights, just the white light from the power button and constant white charging light with an occasional orange blink.  Then it took a while to get it to turn off. I took it to Best Buy, but the guy at the Geek Squad wasn't very helpful, and I was very reluctant to just send away my computer before I actually knew what the problem was.  I was going to try taking a look inside the computer, but I couldn't get all the screws out because I did not have the proper screwdriver.  Does anyone know what the problem might be or a possible solution? I really can't afford to not have a laptop, and I really can't afford super high repair fees.

I've cleaned the inside of my laptop and replaced the thermal paste but this time I turned it on and noticed the fan doesn't turn on, the screen works but it doesn't recognizes when I close it. I have took it apart multiple times trying to find any loose connections still nothing. I am running an Acer Aspire v3-551g Windows 7.

A:Fan not turning on and screen doesn't sleep

Hi and welcome to TSG.

Are you sure you connected the fan's cable to the motherboard ? I've forgotten to do that myself a few times so don't be offended !

If you mean closing the lid no longer does anything sometimes there is a magnet behind the screen bezel that activates a sensor on the motherboard for this. Or there could be an actual switch somewhere that is pushed down when the lid closes.

I would watch this Video carefully to see if you could have missed something when you re-assembled the laptop :-

Post the picture any way please, it might help.

Anyway I unchecked it in hopes to uninstall because I don't have a Tablet.

Dear Forum, Ever since I installed Windows 10 the automatic screen rotation doesn't work. I have the impression that Windows doesn't even know that my Thinkpad has the corresponding sensors. In the device manager, there is no "Sensor" section, I have no "Rotation lock" button in the quick settings (not greyed out, it's not even there), and the physical rotation lock button does nothing. I checked that the services "Sensor Data Service", "Sensor Monitoring Service" and "Sensor Service" are running and automatically started.I read here on the forum, that there should be some "HID sensors V2" visible in the Device manager. This doesn't show up, so I have no idea how to reinstall drivers. Any suggestions how to teach Windows that it has more hardware than it thinks it has?

My Yoga 900 of course has that same loud BING! when you adjust the volume using the slider, which I will admit is annoying.  But then I checked and my Dell desktop does as well when adjusting the volume slider using the mouse. In both cases you get the heading "Speakers (Realtek High Definition Audio)" when you bring up the volume slider, so it would seem to be a feature of the Realtek Audio driver.  So the question is, can you find an alternate audio driver, one without the BING!?

The other one was a Yoga 11 that I bought last year.   With the Yota 11, the screen turns on as soon as I open the lid.   On the new Yoga 710, the screen never turns on when I open the lid and I have to press the power button to turn it on.  I've searched and tried dozens of different setting and none made any difference.   I ended up taking the Yoga 710 back to the Best Buy store.  There were three Geeksquad guys who couldn't figure it out.   So they simply exchanged it.  When I got home and unboxed it, it was still the same.  I went back to the store three more times and all the other ones they gave me had the same behavior.  I actually didn't want to exchange them, but they Geeksquad guys insisted that it was normal, so they just kept exchanging it.  The two of them actually spent over 15 minutes trying to figure it out, but nothing worked.   The laptops were otherwise working perfectly. The Yoga 710 on display at Best Buy actually did work just fine.  The screen turns on when the lid is opened...
