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.

Hi, I completely reinstalled windows 8.1 pro on my ThinkPad Yoga. After that I installed all drivers including updates provided by Microsoft and Lenovo (using Lenovo system updater 5). But I can't use all FN keys (meaning the special functions like opening the windows 8 settings pane bar...) Also the orange led is lighted up on the F1 key (I guess this should indicate that my speakers are muted - but this led is always on). What should I do or what do I have to install in addition to use all FN special keys including the correct indication of the mute-LED?

Hello all, I have a Thinkpad Yoga 14 (20FY0002US), which was purchased 14 months ago, so it is just out of warrenty. It worked great, although I only use it when I travel. Starting from a few days ago, some of keys of it are not working. These keys are near the edges of the keyboard, such as "1", "q", "a", "z", the ESC key, the windows key, the space key, and the backspace key. The keys in the middle as wel as the function keys are fine.   I believe that It is not an issue related to the windows, but the problem exists even in the BIOS. I tried to update the BIOS and the drivers, but no help. I also have disconnected and reconnected the ribbon cables of the keyboard, no help as well. Any help/suggestions? Thanks a lot.

I could feel that the arrow keys on my machine were a little wobbly from the beginning, but now both of them pop out very easily.  I?ve inspected the black key cap itself, as well as the white plastic clips on the mounting bracket that the key cap attaches to. There doesn?t appear to be damage to either part, but the keys won?t stay firmly in place. Tried carefully reattaching it according to guides from laptopreplacement key,  but to no avail.  Wondering if others have had this issue and how it was resolved. Laptop is 5 months old and gently used. Bought the machine in the U.S., but working is South Korea currently, so not sure how difficult getting warranty service will be here or if it?s possible.

You can change the volume in software, but neither the volume +- on the keyboard, nor the volume rocker on the side of the machine will change the volume. That is, UNLESS you open the task manager, and then click on the services tab. As long as the focus is on the services tab, then the volume on the keyboard and the rocker will both work. If you click on another window, or if you click on a tab other than the services tab, both sets of buttons stop working. Also, both sets of buttons work fine in Linux.

I've had my TPY for a little over a year without any issues, but today I lost the ability to use the following keys: Backspace, Windows, Left-Shift, T, Y, Tab, Capslock, [, ]  in addition to some of the function keys. Using the onscreen keybaord or an external usb keyboard works just fine. I am unable to use the tab key at the BIOS screen, so it appears to be a hardware issue. This seems to be a common problem for these keys in particular for various Lenovo models and even some Dells. I have tried reinstalling the keyboard drivers as suggested in other posts, and I have tried reseating the keyboard connection according to this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PxHKvpI8Wvc I bought this unit from the MS store with only a 1 year warranty (which is now up), so I'm not sure what to do. I can try replacing the keyboard but it appears others have had only limited success with replacement. Has anyone else dealt with this problem?

On my Thinkpad Yoga S1, the keys t, y, backspace, enter, caplock, and left shift are suddenly not working. This seems to be a common problem on lenovo computers, but the lenovo forum administrator closed the only thread that attempted to address this without any solution. The lenovo admin said that too many diferent models were involved. I don't understand why these exact specific keys are affected on so many Lenovo models. Lenovo has no solution, and will not support a thread to work towards one. The Microsoft store already replaced my keyboard under warrenty over a year ago, but the YTP S1 is now out of warrenty. This does not seem to be a hardware problem given the relatively recent Keyboard replacement. Does anyone have any suggestions? I wont buy another Lenovo if this problem cant be solved. I've had tremndous problems with this computer and have found Lenovo to be unhelpful/unresponsive. This was an expensive computer when it was purchased.

The keys on my Yoga 900 periodically double enter with a single key stroke.  For example, when I press the "e" key once my laptop will periodically produce "ee".  It does this for many of the characters and is very annoying.  How do I get this fixed.  Is it a keyboard hardware issue.  I need to resolve this while my laptop is still in warranty.  I've never had this happen before.  

A:Yoga 900 keyboard key defect - bouncing keys

Hello, I had this problem with my Yoga 3. I finally get fed up with it and decided to look into it. I cannot  say I found a solution based on any suggestions, because I didn't see anything  relevant from my initial search. So, I went to the Lenovo support site and looked for a keyboard driver update. I didn't see one. This is probably not related, but I did see an update to my touchpad driver, so I updated it. Then I checked for a BIOS update. There was one, but the accompanying text file did not mention anything about a fix for keyboard bounce. In fact, it didn't really give a list of problems fixed at all. So, I decided to try it anyway. Well, it seems to have worked! I got keyboard bounce so often that I'm sure I would have seen it multiple times by now. If it happened only once in a while, I would not have been so annoyed. This is where I started the process: http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/GlobalProductSelector?C=1&TabName=Downloads&linkTrack If you click on "Detect my product", it will install an app that collects your specific product info.  Then, when  you click on it again with the app installed, it will go to a page for your product and you can search for various driver updates and BIOS updates. I hope this works for you. It certainly seems to have fixed my keyboard bounce problem.

I have had my X1 Yoga 3rd Gen for about 5 days now and have started to notice that when opening the lid or switching back from tablet mode to laptop mode, that certain keys will remain recessed. It's the left Shift key along with Z, X, C, V. I can rectify this by pushing the V key and then it and the other recessed keys release. It also seems like the B key might be out of alignment too, however, it is not stuck in a recessed state like the ones mentioned above. Any one else seen this? Any ideas on how to fix or if I'm doing something wrong when switching between modes/opening the lid?

the question mark (?) is above the forward slash (/) and when I try to put a question mark at the end of a sentence, for some strange reason at times, it instead gives me a capital E witha french accent mark on it - the question mark is working properly right now so I can't even show that.

is this a win 7 issue? I ask only in that after 9 years with XP, and many diff keyboards, I've never ever had this happen...

Hi Jc-createlli,

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.

I have a Thinkpad Yoga 12 model. It is using Windows 10. What is the driver/software I should check to make sure I'm running the latest version for the equivalent of what used to be called "Transitions"?  Basically something that recognizes various keyboard configurations such as tablet mode, tent mode, etc. and appropriately disables or re-enables the keyboard? Two things happened last night as I was playing a game in tent mode:- firstly I could not get the screen to rotate 180 degrees when I switched from tablet mode to normal laptop mode by rotating the keyboard and flipping to normal orientation.  So everything was displayed upside-down.- the keyboard was unresponsive, but I could use the touch screen fine and use the Windows button under the screen to get to the Start menu.   So basically somehow something stopped responsing that should have told the system that I flipped the laptop from tent mode to normal mode and also rotated the keyboard forward.

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!

My X1 Yoga keyboard stopped responding suddenly. Was working fine, walked away for 15 minutes, came back to wake from sleep and no key response. Track button and click buttons on keyboard work fine. Caps lock and F1 indicator lights don't work either. The touchpad is fine. None of the keys work at all. Didn't install any new software or updates. Bought replacement keyboard from laptopkeyboard.com and replaced but still same exact issue so don't believe it is a faulty membrane (as suspected).  Pulling hair out trying to understand.  Only thought is maybe either the system board or the ribbon cable from the keyboard to the board went bad.  There are two ribbon cables from the keyboard to the system board.  My guess is one is for the track buttons and the other for the keys.  Before replacing these, hoping someone has some other idea (maybe like a simple software glitch?).  Thanks.

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

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?

After latest update, my Thinkpad Yoga 12 keyboard wont light up on Fn + space. It does light up on startup. I have installed the latest Thinkpad Hotkey Features Integration drivers. Is this reason for me to revert to win 8.1, or is there a solution? I cannot find the older 8.78.00 Hotkey driver anywhere. Would that work better?

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.
 
Regards

As the title says, my trackpoint, keyboard backlight and touchpad have stopped working. The problem happened a few weeks after I updated from windows 8.1 to windows 10. 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. Can anyone help? I see that some Yoga 12 users report similar problems after a fuse fails. Does anyone know if this occurs on the S1 Yoga?
