Q: Yoga 900 Video out on USB Type-C port not supporti...

Been a little embarrassed at two client sites in the last couple of weeks when I've tried to share my screen using the USB type-C port with either DVI or HDMI. In both cases (but not with VGA - it works fine with VGA, usually) the system locks - no keyboard, no mouse, until I remove the cable from the USB port. I've tried this with several adaptors - DVI-DisplayPort-USBC; HDMI-DisplayPort-USBC (there are no "multi-adaptors" from TypeC to all output types - VGA, DVI and HDMI, but there are plenty of display port multi-adaptors, and there are TypeC to DisplayPort.) The system at my office is VGA - and it works just fine. When I try to plug the DVI cable into the multi-adaptor, though, it behaves exaclty like at client sites - machine lock up and then no DVI out on the secondary monitor. Same for HDMI at the office - machine locks up for several seconds, recovers and then no HDMI out. Can't really afford to buy three completely different adaptors (assuming they're even made) for all possible client possibilities. Please tell me what diagnostics i can perform to isolate the problem.To summarize:VGA->DisplayPort->TypeC works (most of the time - not in all instances)DVI>DisplayPort>C never works (locks up and then doesn't recognize seconndary monitorHDMI>DisplayPort>C - ditto with DVI Thanks.

Hello and welcome,

To clarify for me and others reading your post: your issue is only with USB-C to multi-adapters, but not with individual ones? Your post subject implies a more general issue than that.

After reading your post I plugged my Cable Matters USB-C to HDMI (single interface) adapter into my 900 and it works fine.

So I just recently bought a Yoga 920, Star Wars Editon, this last weekend. And today I had my phone connected up through the USB-A port, and while attempting to remove the cable from the laptop, it took a little more effort than normal, only to find that one of the pins inside the port had been bent. I took it into Best Buy to have GeekSquad take a look, and aside from sending it out and having to wait 1-2 week, they suggested I contact Lenovo about the port replacement ability, and then bringing it in for them to work on. So, my question is, is the USB-A port a replaceable part, and if so how would I go about getting a part? Or will I need to have them handle it and send out for repairs?

Hello, I have a pretty new Yoga 920-13IKB.  The USB Type A port just stopped working out of the blue yesterday.  I tried the normal stuff like deleting the usb entries in device manager, disabling fastboot and trying different devices, but nothing is recognized.  I have a USB C to USB A adapter and when I plug a USB A device into the laptop via the USB C port/adapter, that does work fine.  The USB A port does charge my phone though, so it's not totally dead. Anything else I can check on the software side?  It certainly seems like a hardware issue to me. As far as warranty support, I do have Microcenter nearby.  How does support with them work?  It looks like the USB A assembly is a separate board and is not part of the motherboard, so that should be easily replaceable.  Does Microcenter carry parts like that or do they still send it out for that? Thanks!

Hello, I'm a new Yoga 910 owner and I have to say I'm really impressed and loving it so far!! However, I was disappointed to find out that the USB-C charging port cannot be used to project video. This is really a trending feature and I cannot understand how and why would Lenovo miss it, for many people who are interested in using an exernal monitor, being able to quickly plug in a single usb-c cable to the dock adapter is great convinenence. I'm wondering if this is a firmware or driver limitation, in other words, is there a possibility that Lenovo will be able to release an update so that the usb-c charing port can also be used as video out port? or is this a hardware limitation and it is impossible to support this feautre in the future? Thanks

These are all the things that i tried.
1.Login to my router and forward ports and enable UPnP.
2.Go to Network Infrastructure and Select my device and add a Port.
Also if My ISP blocks that particular ports,is there any way that i can open them?

Hello Community,
I've been experiencing constant screen flickers when I used the USB type C port on my XPS 13 (signature edition). 
Situation: I'm trying to display the content of my laptop on my LG HD TV by connecting the TV to an HDMI cable and the HDMI cable to a USB type C adapter, and to my XPS 13. The screen flickers on and off almost instantly. Anyone encounter the same problem?
It's been very frustrating as this is my third XPS. My first 2 had many screen flickering issues in general, and this one I'm currently using only has screen flickering when I attempt to perform features/activities involving the USB Type C port (lightning port).
Any solutions please? Any help would be appreciated.
Thank you 

A:Screen Flickering when using USB C type port

I just purchased my Dell XPS 13 last week.  The Dell Thunderbolt H15 Docking Station has the same problem.  It will work fine for a few minutes, then the screen will go black and it will come back on in a few seconds.  Dell Customer Services could not figure it out, but they said it was a known issue that they are working on.
So, I bought a Cable Matters USB-C to HDMI adapter along with an Amazon Basics HDMI cable.  This seems to work with a monitor, but not with my Samsung HD TV (I have two, and the problem is the same with both).  The screen again goes black, then resets every 15-20 seconds.
I am not sure what the issue is, but if I find something in my research, I will bring it here.

I don't see why that would be the case when it mentions on the product page that it can have two additional DP ports (see below). So why not both?
