Yoga 3 Pro screen turn off after 30 seconds

Q: Yoga 3 Pro screen turn off after 30 seconds

My relatively new Yoga 3 Pro (4 months old) inbuild screen goes blacl/turns off after 30 seconds unless I am activity typing or moving the mouse around. The screen still seems to be on and I can see the back-light but the screen is completely black. I have to hit a key or click the trackpad for it to come back on. This happens no mattter what program/app I am using or even if I am just displaying the desktop. It will even happen when viewing youtube videos or reading a pdf. While I have not tried it, I am pretty sure it it will do this when doing a presentation unless I move through the slides within 30 seconds. I have adjuster the timer for the screen to turn off in Power & System settings (tried everything from 2 min to never for both battery and plugged-in) and have disabled Harmony Paper Display (using the Fn+Esc) with no effect. The screen just goes black after 30 seconds no matter what I do. Does anyone know how to stop this from happening.This is really annoying and pretty much makes the computer useless for work.

I left my new Yoga 530 running. When I came back the display was turned off, but I couldn't wake it up again. I tried pressing the power button, but that didn't work. So I held down the power button to force a shutdown. But when I press the power button to start the machine up again, the power button lights and fan turns on, but still the screen remains dark. What should I  do? I've tried using a paperclip in the reset button to start the machine, but that doesn't work either. It is not the first time I come back and the screen doesn't turn on but I usually forced shutdown and turned it on again, now when turning on again screen doesn't. This time I had some driver updates scheduled for the next reset.

I turned on my Yoga fine this morning, and everything worked. I shut the laptop, didn't shut it down, put it in my bad and drove home. It was in a bag in the sun for 10 minutes, but it was covered, and it has lasted longer than that. When I got home, it wouldn't turn on. It showed the light by the power button, but that is no longer shown. It shows the battery is fully charged, it has the white light. I tried holding for 15 seconds, and I tried quickly pressing 10 times. I couldn't find a forum that fixed my problem. Thank you!

Today while using my yoga 3 14, I realized my computer wasn't charging properly. As I was using it the screen shut off comepletely while the rest of the computer appeared to be continuing to function. As my computer wasn't charging, and the screen won't turn on, the power light does turn on as normally functioning. It's now however blinking orange as the charger won't work, and my screen continues to be off. Functions such as the light up keyboard work but not for long, is there any solutions to my issue?

Dear Cxexcision,
 
Welcome in lenovo community,
 
Please try to
 
1- Force shutdown the laptop >> Unplug the charger >> Hold the power button for 20 seconds.
2- Connect the charger >> turn on the laptop
3- If the screen still off, please try to connect the laptop to external monitor.
 
Try the above and feed us back please.

I just got a used Yoga S1 and I am really happy with it so far, except for two things... Firstly I have encountered a problem ejere the laptop does not power off or go into sleep properly. Instead light in keyboard buttons (fnlink etc.) keep being lit and the red power lamp blinks slowly. The laptop does not respond om anything except a hard reset (holding power button) Secondly I see that the screen has quite a lot og ghosting/burn-in, especially when I look at a gray-ish background, where previous applications can still be seen on the screen (outline of chrome etc). I have read that this is a common problem with this laptop, but I didn't really see a solution other than sending it to Lenovo, but it out of warranty so I guess this is not and option?  Hope you can help med out Best Regards Lynge

Hi! I was using my laptop last night when I got the notification that the battery was low. I just got a new power bank and I wanted to try charging the laptop from it. It didn't work so I decided to charge it the regular why. Before I managed to plug the charger in the screen went black but the power button still had it's light on. I figure that the battery was very low and waited about 10 minutes before I pushed it again, trying to restart the computer. Nothing happened, the power button was still on but the laptop still wouldn't start. I pressed and held and then the power button went off. After that, with the laptop still charging, I tried to turn it on again but it doesn't react. The white light by the charger port is on and not blinking anymore which probably means it's fully charged but other than that there is no sign of activity. I tried pressing the power button and holding up to one minute... nothing! I even tried restarting it via the Novo button, didn't work either. I've had it for 8 months and didn't have any problems with it up until now. Do you have any suggestions?

I have a Yoga X1 ThinkPad gen 1. This morning when I went to turn it on, I got a black screen but the lights for the mute and caps lock came on as well as light at the top of the laptop and the green for the power button. This has happened before but I was always able to successfully force a shut down and restart the laptop with no problem. Today, the laptop will not shut off no matter how long I hold the power button for. I thought I would try to let the battery run out but it's been 10 hours and all of the said "on" indicators are still here. Under normal circumstances, I know the battery would die within 5 hours max. I'm not sure what to do, does anyone have any ideas?

On the bottom of your laptop there should be an "emergency reset hole" (see image below)    Gently insert a bent paperclip etc. into the hole to depress the reset button, and hold for 5-10 seconds before trying to restart your laptop.  Click on above image to expand view  Best of luck,

I bought a Lenovo Yoga 710 laptop from Best Buy last week.    This is my 2nd Lenovo laptop. 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... I think that's why the Geeksuqad guys insisted that all 4 that I got were bad.... on the other hand, 5 of them had were manufacturered in three different months, so I assume they were from different batches?

For these last couple of months i've had issues with BSODs. I blamed it on the RAMs and returned them to the store. While i was waiting for them to return, i borrowed my brother's RAMs, and it turned out i still got the BSODs. Anyway, i fixed the problem a few days ago when i updated most of my drivers.

Today i got my RAMs back. I switched them out with my brother's RAMs and booted the computer. it looked fine the first 2-5 seconds but then it turns off and boots again by itself a few seconds later.

I've had a similar issue before, and it turned out it was my heatsink which wasnt proberbly mounted. I checked it, and it might have been loose but i managed to fix it and now it should be mounted correctly. Still, the computer reboots after a couple of seconds.

Ive checked all the cables to see it any of them were loose
Ive tried to plug the videocard into another plug
Ive taken the CPU out and back in
Ive tried to switch out the RAMs one by one

Do you have any suggestions ???
Thanks in advance.

Hi Millurn welcome to the site.

seem odd that they Would BOTH not work. Might be the CPU might be at fault here. I am surprised that it does not work as everything is compatible.

It also sounds like it might be the PSU. Can you get hold of another 400W plus PSU and see if that works. If so then you know what the Issue is.

Also i update all software and Bios, but still forced same problem, then,3. I disassemble the laptop, pull out some connectors such as batteries, keyboards, and more. Some of these steps succeeded, until finally the problem arose and I went to the laptop service in my city.4. There was a slight problem with the supply of electric current on the motherboard and it was successfully fixed and my laptop turned on again. However, after one day the problem reappeared after the laptop was turned off. Luckily, my service place provides a one-month guarantee. But, I have returned to the service area with the same problem (more than 5 times). According to them, my motherboard has no problems, as well as other hardware. I still don't get the cause with this problem often arises.

Just aquired an Inspiron 5759 which is great and does everything I want apart from one thing - it takes an eternity (10 seconds) to show anything on the screen and as it doesn't have a power light I thought it wasn't turning on the first few times I pressed the power button so obviously pressed it more times than I should have!
I have seen the thread about switching the light at the front to show the HDD activity but as you have to press the fn and H key every time you turn it on it doesn't really help.

CPU: 2.6Ghz Intel P4

still had same problem. replaced PSU w/ 400w, same problem, replaced CPU w/ 2.4Ghz P4, same problem. thought it was a bad CPU because when start it up w/o the 4 pin connecter plugged into the motherboard, it runs the fans w/o powering down.

Hello... let me state the problem.

Problem: Computer shuts down randomly. I press the power switch, but it does not turn the computer on. I have to wait a while and press power switch, and it turns on, or I switch the voltage switch (red switch) on the back of the PSU a few times, press power, switch voltage switch back to 110V and then power switch and it turns on normally. (Probably not good for it) It then runs for like 1 hour --> 1 day and turns off randomly again, where i must repeat.


Reason?: I use to never leave my computer on for longer than a day. I never downloaded anything large for it to be left on overnight. During chirstmas I got a Dual Layer DVD-Burner and installed that. I have been leaving my computer on for weeks at a time downloading large files now. Everything was fine for about 3 weeks. Near the end of Janurary it first happened. I didn't think much about it, just turned it back on and it worked fine. About 2 weeks after that it occured again: Now it happens pretty much every day with the added bonus of the power switch not responding for about 1 --> 5 mins.


Possible Problem: The thing I find most insteresting is the fact that after it shut's down, it will not start up for about 1 mins (power switch doesn't respond for a little bit). I can not tell if it is because:
1) I started leaving my computer on for weeks at a time and now Mobo is burning out or PSU?
2) Because I installed the Dual Layer DVD-Burner, and ... Read more

A:Computer doesn't turn on for a few seconds? PSU Problem?

Sounds like it could be the PSU. I had similar problems in getting the bugger to start up and swapping out the PSU seemed to fix it. I've also had problems with the powerup button getting stuck and causing similar symptoms, but with it shutting down my guess would be PSU. Good luck!

Hello,I have a very annoying problem with my 260 yoga. It randomly, but very often, happens that my screen freezes for a few seconds. But in the background the yoga works normally (for example while it hangs i press the start button and after a few seconds it stops to hang and the start menu is there. it opens it while the screen is frozen not after it !) This is very annoying while working with the laptop and makes it nearly impossible. the cursor hangs so often its terrible. What I already did:-clean installation of windows 10 (formatting the ssd and installation from usb drive)-newest drivers through the system update software-newest bios-i tried intel graphics drivers directly from intel as well. i tried to open the taskmanager and watch the tasks when it hangs but it doesnt hang when the taskmanager is open for sure.. In the lenovo solution center hardwarescan i have no problems.Once there was a problem with the short smart-selftest but i did the test again and the problem was gone. What can i do to solve this problem? Greetings

Hei i bought refurbished Yoga 710-14IKB and it's mouse touchbad was freezing whole computer for 1-2 seconds. Sometime more often, then less. Here is the videohttps://www.online.ee/sharefile.php?shareid=d6cb4521-7c42-4acd-8559-eb0d883d7138(online.ee is my local email and cloud provider) I update bios and all driver, and after that was everything ok for 4 days. Today it start again. It's now a lot less but it still is. I have tried change mouse seting even buting palmTracking to minimum, but the problem has not disappeared. It seems to be a ELANtech touchbad, at least elan touchbad drivers have installid this computer  and it's only touchbad drivers that lenovo suport page give for this laptop. Any idea how to get rid of that problem ?????
