Q: T560 - Fingerprint sensor not working when laptop ...

Hi,

I have a new T560 and have found that sometimes the fingerprint sensor stops working when the laptop awakes from sleep. The fingerprint sensor will work as expected once the laptop has been restarted.

Have run an update for latest drivers using Lenovo Companion.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

When I run my finger across the fingerprint sensor, the light is disabled as my finger gets close to the sensor.  Its almost as though it is detecting the change in the light.  I don't know if this is normal, but the end result is that upon swiping a finger, it does not read it and thus cannot be used.  Periodically, the light will stay on and Windows Hello will have no reaction.  Other times, ocassionally, when the finger is rolled to one side, then it flash orange and say it cannot read it. I get the impression that a USB reset is occuring.  Is there any tool to check the fingerprint sensor?  Or does anyone have any ideas?

I have contacted with customer care many times....but no response was given . And I also visited service center chandigarh and they said that the scanner will be replaced and it'll take 4-5 days. But due to shortage of time i was not able to give them the laptop for repairing. This is in onsite warranty , so kindly replace this scanner  and do needful .

Summary: Fingerprint Seonsor not starting. Troubleshoot says driver is alright Details: I received an alarm from Windows Defender saying there is a device driver issue with my laptop a couple of days back. (Image 1) in attachment. On checking the device manager it shows that the device could not start with an Error Code 10 (Image 2) and the driver is up-to-date (Image 3).  I contacted Lenovo Support and they simply gave me the link to the drivers again (kind of pointless when the drivers are already up-to-date) but it changed nothing. Windows Settings show that Windows Hello is not available for the device (probably because it can't detect a fingerprint sensor) at all (Image 4).  I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the device. Have tried disabling and enabling it. Drivers reinstalled. Nothing has worked so far.  Anyone else who faced such an issue and was able to resolve it? Please help.

Lenovo yoga 900-13isk Bios c6cn39ww, I have been having trouble using the laptop, as soon as I move the screen it will go off, if I slowly move the screen back to a certain spot it will show again. it as if I just dim the screen, if I hook up an external monitor it works fine. what I've done so far, removed and reloaded the complete computer to factory, no help, I then removed the battery - reinstalled and again same problem., next I read the ribbon cable might be loose, I removed the back and moved the ribbon and did not get any flickers on the screen so My thoughts are the ribbon cable is good. I then re installed the lenova drivers and I'm having no luck repairing. I then ran the lenovo diagnostic, all passed until I got to Accelerometer interactive test it failed (9s)??? the error is unexpected values read from the sensor.and Gyrometer interactive test failed (39s)?? unexpected values read from the sensor.. I'm not sure what the 9s or the 39s stands for.also these test were run while the external monitor was connected in extended screen mode. nothing on the laptop monitor back light on just no desktop, the external monitor was perfect..Ideas appreciated. this laptop has been great its been used very little, basically just to read the paper in the morning, never droppedthank you

Randomly the sensor just stopped working and in the sign-in options, fingerprint isn't even an option. Windows hello says it is not available on this device. The biometrics was hidden in device manager and I uninstalled it. Downloaded the drivers from the lenovo support site and restarted, which did not work. Now the biometrics isn't even showing in the device manager. Any suggestions? My experience with Lenovo has been a mixed-bag...by far the best thinkpad I've owned and it was working great until it randomly starts dropping wifi connections and now the fingerprint reader. I don't understand how things just stop working all of a sudden. I make sure to keep the system updated - are there bad updates out there?

I woke up this morning, turned on the laptop, and completely out of the blue the fingerprint detection stopped working with the message "Sorry, something went wrong" (It had been working for months).  So I removed fingerprint detection in Windows setup so I could reset it, however it will not let me set up a new fingerprint.   Here is what happens when I try and reset it: 1) Click Setup.2) Click Get Started.3) Message comes up "Touch the fingerprint screen" (NOTE: The green LED illuminates).4) Place the finger on the screen and the following message immediately appears:     Sorry, something went wrong.  Close Windows Hello, and then try going through the setup again.5) So rebooted to make sure that was not the problem and tried again and it still does not work. What else I tried: 1) I uninstalled the Biometrics Driver and reinstalled it from the Lenovo site.....Same problem. My laptop = T470OS = Win 10 Pro 64 bit (Latest Updates from Microsoft)All Drivers = (Latest Updates from Lenovo)Biometric Device = Synaptics WBD(SGX enabled)    The device is working properly    Driver = 5.2.3515.26 (05-23-2017)

Dear All, I am coming to you today as I already tried many (maybe all) of the suggested solutions posted on this forum.Unfortunately, I never managed to get a proper, working install. After updating to windows 10 (Auto update from windows - Online) the Validity Fingerprint Sensor (VFS451) just stopped working. When trying to uninstall VFS driver using device manager, the biometric will dissapear from the device list. After restarting, the biometric will show the Validity sensor as if nothing happened, same driver version (2.3.0.0) and same driver details???. Tried updating, manually uninstalling, third party drivers (Lenovo) etc... without success. I never got to the point where Windows Hello would show up and let me configure the sensor.Hope someone has a solution, at least to uninstall the driver as it seems to be the main problem. Many thanks in advance for your time and advice. Olivier

Hello to you all,

I have a superb enigm for you guys. If you are curious, here it is....

I just bougt a portege Toshiba Portege Z30t-A-126 PT24CE -01400HFR
Nice machine but SSD is too small so I changed the original 256 SSD to put a 512.

Reinstalled Win7 completely without any pb.

Just one pb actually : the fingerprint sofware is not working.
When I Iaunch it, it fails and says "impossible to connect with the sensor".

In french " reconnaissance d'empreinte
impossible de connecter le capteur"

But when I check the computor's peripheral manager it says that everything is up and running, the Validity Sensors (WBF) (PID=0010) works fine and the latest driver is installed.
(I downloaded the driver form the toshiba support website. The driver's name is fp-sw-20140115084521.zip)

So ?? What's going wrong ??

I spent hours to look on the web and tried everything I could. Reinstalled one thousand time the drivers, the software, tried other drivers... But there is no way I can fix this.
That is really annoying...

Can somebody help me please ? Do you have a genius Idea ? I'm stuck...

Thanx in advance. :-)

Hi

This fingerprint issue has been already described in another thread.
http://forums.computers.toshiba-europe.com/forums/thread.jspa?threadID=81261

You should be able to solve the issue installing the chipset driver.
Another user said, that an installation of Proset Ethernet drivers/software was necessary to get the issue solved. But to be honest I don?t think that missing Proset Utility would cause the issue?

However, check it out.

What is visible (in device manager) is Dell Control Vault w/o fingerprint sensor.

Something is weird with the fingerprint sensor. When it works, it works instantly and recognizes my fingerprint right away, no matter which part of the finger I use. The problem is that it's *constantly* forgetting my finger. It'll work fine, then I'll close my laptop and come back in a little bit and it doesn't work at all...fails three times and have to use my PIN. Once that happens it doesn't work again, at all, until I re-enroll my fingerprint at which time it works perfectly again for some time. I end up having to re-enroll once or twice a day. Lenovo Vantage pulled in a new version of the driver package today but it didn't help...the issue just happened again. Anyone know what the cause might be?

My fingerprint sensor does not work any longer after update to Win10-64 Version 1607. I am using the latest Win10 build, the latest BIOS Version 1.15 and the latest version of the fingerprint sensor driver (Synaptics Metallica Touch Fingerprint Driver) Version 5.1.311.26 from 14.7.2016. Uninstalling the driver completely and re-installing it helped for one reboot to re-activate it, but this is no stable state, the fingerprint sensor is unavailable after the next reboot. Surprisingly the fingerprint sensor is still offered as a logon option, although iinactive. Soon thereafter there is a message during the final stage of the reboot ('there has been a problem...') and it's completely gone and completely gone. Obviously Win10-64 Version 1607 and the fingerprint driver does not like each other. Any solutions available?

Hi karikana,

Have you removed the old version of fingerprint software before you installed the new version? Remove it in control panel > uninstall programs and remove the software before you install the new one. Also use a registry cleaner like Ccleaner to clean the registry.
