Q: Yoga 260 Stylus Tip Detection/Palm Rejection probl...

I got my Yoga 260 around 10 days ago. I first updated my windows 10 to the new release (so I'm not sure if the problem was there from the begining). The pen is not working as it should be, the tip is not detected or detected by some offset (usually it goes into bottom of the screen besides taskbar). For example I start writing in onenote and suddenly instead of writing on the current line it is writing some wiggly things on the bottom of the page. This is not only happening in onenote or inking apps, even when I'm using the pen for selecting lines in a webpage, jumps happen. Is this a pen problem? or display digitizer? Also I'm not sure if this is a driver problem or hardware problem. I tried to rollback to original installed windows 10 to test that, using factory resseting but I couldn't, windows keeps the upgrade. I checked the wacom driver it is recent 08/02/2016 even more recent than the one available on wacom's website (I tested both). I changed the pen and inking setting: made the handness to "right hand" and "Ignore touch input when I'm using my pen" to on, but nothing helped. It is really frustrating, because I mainly bought this notebook because of its stylus. So anyone else had the same problem? Any fixes for that? Thanks

I have a yoga 720 and a bamboo ink stylus for it. i had recently sent the unit in to get the hinges replaced as they were warped. I recieved the laptop back and did the latest windows 10 update, however now when i rest my palm on the screen to write it glitches causing what i write to not appear. This was not an issue before sending it in. I am wondering if this is possibly something caused by sending the laptop in or a software issue. It works fine when i write without placing my palm on the screen.

The X1 Yoga rejects touch as if it were a palm way too easily. When using the X1 in tablet mode, my thumb often is at an angle where the entire thumb is used to scroll through pages, however, the X1 sees this as a palm, rejecting the touch.  Heres a video detailing what I'm talking about. As a note, this does not happen at all on a Surface Pro 4, which actaully knows that I'm using a thumb not a palm. I mean how can the touchscreen mistake my thumb for how big a palm is? Not very happy as I use my X1 in tablet mode to browse the web quite often.

Hi,My ideapad lenovo yoga 720(13 inches) had wifi problems and a "pen writing" dead zone when I used to write with my palm down. After talking with lenovo support, I ve decided to send it to repair.Days passed and I ve kept checking the repair board seeing messages as " looking for parts" then " repairing" and at the end "repair completed see notes" . But repair notes said " Verified orderly functioning. Taken functional tests for the device. "Now I am worried that they didn't repair my laptop. So I was asking myself "what did the message looking for parts meant"? Hope to hear somebody who had/ is in my same situation. Here's a video with the main problem. I received the PC. They didn't repair it because they marked it as "working unit". I am mad of this. Palm rejection is not working correctly or pheraps is the entire Display Digitizer. The funny thing is that I ve send it with a "tempered glass attached". I knew that if a repair centre has to deal with tempered glass "They will always peel it off" before starting to work on it. Well It is still there, that states the quality of the whole operation. Should had bought something else. Here I attach the video (italian "dubbing" sorry).https://youtu.be/-y47lqillhY

As a new owner of the C930, I'm very much enjoying the experience.  Last night I started to play around with the Pen and doing some sketches and drawings using some built-in Windows 10 apps.  The experience was fine especially after I adjusted some Pen settings in Windows 10.  But one thing I noticed was there were some blemishes outside of my main drawing where possibly my palm was on the screen.  Small blemishes which I could "erase" but just wondering if others have the same issue and how you solved it. Thanks in advanceAmar

After upgrading to windows 10, palm rejection while using the stylus no longer works, causing there to be multiple glitchy inputs while the pen is active. It's set to right handed pen use and it's still messed up. The other thing is that crystal disk info says that there's no health setting for my SSD and most of it's stats are "unknown". Anyone know of any solutions to these issues?

Hi, I'm having problems with the palm rejection on my X1 Yoga. When using the TB3 port for video output to external monitors, the palm rejection gets twitchy when I have my palm on the screen and the supplied pen jumps all over the screen while drawing. The same exact thing happens with my Wacom Bamboo. When I stop using the TB3 port (either unplugging or set display to PC only), the insane jitter goes away and the palm rejection works normally. Also, if I use the pens with my hand lifted off the screen, there is no jitter. I tried the same thing on the HDMI connection and the palm rejection seems to be working fine. Any suggestions? I'm on Windows 10 Build 17134 & BIOS Firmware N25ET39W (1.25) and have all the latest updates installed through Lenovo Vantage. Thanks!

Hi, I recently purchased 2 Yoga 920s from Lenovo. On one of them I am having serious issues with palm rejection and none of the solutions I can find on the various forums seem to resolve my issue. When writing (e.g. in One Note) and resting my palm on the screen, the cursor keeps "jumping" between my palm and the tip of the pen. This leads to any of the following behaviors:- Not writing at all (e.g. Hello turns into H    l  o)- "writing" where my palm is located- doing some freaky stuff and just creating random lines in the area of my palm and pen  How could I resolve this issue?

I bought the Lenovo Flex 5 with digitizer and active stylus hoping I would be able to use it for drawing and painting as well as writing notes/ journaling as it's advertised to be capable of but I'm really disappointed. First of all, if my palm is resting on the screen the pen acts really glitchy. Only about 10% of what I write/draw is registered at all and half of that is really delayed. Additionally the action isn't very accurate, if I use a ruler to draw a line it tuns out jagged and bumpy and everything I write/ draw looks really sloppy. I've used a Microsoft Surface Pro 4  and an iPad Pro with the pencil and none of these things were an issue, the outcome was as accurate as pen and paper.  I've tested out several applications/ programs, some are better than others but none of them are good enough for me to really want to use. I replaced the the active stylus with a Wacom Bamboo Ink stylus, the rubber tip feels better to use but the results are still the same. I also went to a store and tested both of my pens on the two Flex 5s they had on display and it was all the same. Is this a software issue that can be improved through updates? Or is anyone having a positive experience drawing on a Flex 5? It is advertized to have palm rejection, accuracy and pressure sensativity, there is digitizer technology that succesfully achieves all of those things for a plesant writing/ drawing experience so why doesn't this?

I could really use your help! I use OneNote on my Yoga 14 (Type 20FY) to take notes in veterinary school and I've had an issue for the past year or so. While in tablet mode, if I'm using the stylus pen, it will take anywhere from 2 to 15 seconds after removing the pen from the screen to allow input with a finger. Sometimes it takes even longer than that and I have to either unfold the screen or write with the pen again to finally get it to toggle palm rejection off again. Here's a link to a video I made a few minutes ago of the issue https://youtu.be/-RPDYB96GXk  I usually just keep the computer folded over my left arm while writing with my right so that I can unfold it quickly and refold it, but this slows my note-taking drastically and drives me crazy! Even when everything is running perfectly, my classes cover so much material that I can't keep up, so this is really an issue for me.  This problem NEVER occurs when the computer is in laptop mode - the palm rejection toggling happens instantly every single time while in laptop mode. This makes me believe it might be a setting somewhere in the tablet mode code. Any suggestions are welcome and I'd be completely fine with disabling tablet mode entirely if that's possible. Below is some info on the system, if you need more info, let me know!Yoga 14 (Type 20FY)64 bit Windows 10 HomeMicrosoft OneNote 2016 MSO (16.0.8528.2126) 32 bit

A:Yoga 14: Creaking noise under right palm

Hi
 
I don't have that creaking noise on my TPY 14 on the right palm with normal hand weight, but I noticed that this model has some creaking/squeaking noise on the plastic if you make some preasure on the right just over the power button. I also notice some creaking noise on the top left just on the SDCard slot if you make some preasure there.  I'm thinking that those two creaking noises are part of the design of the machine.

I bought a Lenovo ThinkPad L380 Yoga in August 2018. It has been used very carefully without any drops or other accidents. Today, I discovered a hairline crack on the palm rest just next to the bottom-left corner of the touchpad.  I contacted Lenovo support regarding this matter, and after seeing the photos that  I sent them (the same photos are attached here), they have concluded that it is a customer induced damage (CID) and will not be covered under warranty. The only justification for their conclusion was that there is no such issue reported in other laptops. This justification was made over the phone when I requested them an email regarding their justification. It is only the hand that is kept around this region of the palm rest. If it cannot bear the weight of the hand, I suppose the build quality and material is pretty cheap although the price was about 1800 NZD.  Have you also come across similar issues with the same L380 Yoga? What are the situations/scenarios for such a crack to happen when the device has been properly used and maintained in accordance with the product information guide? Cheers!!

Hello,  I just bought a Yoga 530  (SSD 256GB 8GB RAM and i5 8th model). I bought it because I needed a laptop and a graphics tablet. I thought it was a good 2 in 1. However, I am having issues with the stylus :- sometimes he refuses to write while nothing else touches the screen. It's annoying but we get used to it. (it's not normal tho)- sometimes, when I draw with it on Photoshop, he continues to draw after I remove it off the screen. So I can not do anything else on the screen until I touch the screen with the stylus, in which case it connects me to the previous touchpoint and thus makes strokes randomly on screen. This, on the other hand, annoys me a lot.  Is this a known problem? How to solve it? If there is no solution, I will retract my purchase.  thank you, Daienb

Hi,I know this topic appeared a few times before on this forum but I am really confused especially after a Lenovo employee told me via pohne I could basically use any stylus on the Lenovo Yoga 510. I would be very grateful if someone could help me.I read this article:http://www.howtogeek.com/177376/not-all-tablet-styluses-are-equal-capacitive-wacom-and-bluetooth-exp...As i figured Lenovo Yoga 510 has a different touchscreen (no wacom technology, no digitizer?) than f.e. Yoga 460, which is much more expensive. Is that correct? Is that why I can not use f.e. the ThinkPad Stylus? Or was the employee right and it doesen't matter?if not, is there any kind of alternative for the Yoga 510 apart from the cheap pens with the thick tip? I want something that is somewhat precise. I saw pens with a battery that appear to be capacitive by generating a small electromagnetic field like your finger but have a thin tip. Are these the only alternative for Yoga 510? Does the pen for Lenovo Think Pad definitely not work? What about the pens that comunicate via bluetooth mentioned in the article? Could they be an alternative for the Yoga 510?If there is no real solution for Yoga 510 and there was a Lenovo Laptop with a similar price than Yoga 510, with similar performance and with digitizer I would consider changing mine but from what I saw the notebooks with digitizer are either much more expensive (like Yoga 460) or have a lower performance (like yoga book) is that correct?Thank you very much.

I tried to check the battery using the ThinkPad Low Battery Notifier, but it didn't even ackowledge that there was a pen touching the screen. My finger works fine, so it's not the touchpad.

However, I'm not sure if this is the case with the eMMC 32GB model. Secondly, what stylus will allow me to write precisely on this laptop? Thirdly, how well does this machine work under Linux as of now? Does the touchscreen fully work, are there problems with drivers etc. Thanks, VOT.

A:Yoga 300 - supports another HDD? What stylus? Linu...

Certainly the touchscreen does not work on a Yoga 510-14AST (note that the 3 digit product name often describes quite a range of hardware) out of the box - I'm currently seeking some clues from Lenovo as to what hardware implements this (nothing detected by the diagnostics in Linux). But apart from the touchscreen, auto-rotation and Firewire, everything else works - so it was still a good buy as a basic but robust laptop.

I've been using my 260 for a couple months now and generally have been pleased with it.  Unfortunately, the stylus stopped working while I was using it yesterday and I'm trying to figure out what's gone wrong. I suspect the internal capacitor is no longer charging, but I'm unsure how to check.  If it is a charging issue, is it possible that it's an OS driver issue?  A few weeks ago I changed my OS from Windows 10 to Ubuntu and if the stylus has a very impressive battery life it's possible it's just finally worn out, but I find it odd that this would be OS dependent, as doesn't the stylus charge even if the PC is off? If anyone can shed some light on this issue, it would be much appreciated.  Google has failed to provide me any helpful information and I'd really like to avoid reinstalling Windows 10 just to see if it starts charging my stylus - especially if it doesn't help!

Anyone who could shed some light on that I would be very grateful to.
