I have a "Yoga 710-11ISK" that is not turning on anymore. Power button LED is on but the notebook does not give any signs of life. I bought this in USA but i'm from Brazil and this notebook is different from the notebooks that are manufactured in here. I have tried turning on whith no battery, only with the cable. I've remove the SSD, WLAN, keyboard, everething that i can and nothing happens.The motherboard heats up but doesn't turn on. I put a external keyboard (USB) and no LEDs of the keyboard turn on, and a external monitor also don't turn on. I've already pressed the power button for 15 seconds, 30 seconds, 60 seconds.. and nothing happened.I'm trying to detect if some circuit is burned but I'm having troubles finding out.Has this happened to anyone else? Has anyone been able to fix it? Does anybody has the schematics to this notebook?

Hi guys, I had a Yoga Pro 2 but I got it replaced by Lenovo under warranty because it was having some major major issues. They sent me a Yoga 900 and I am already noticing problems with its connection to my bluetooth mouse. I used this same bluetooth mouse on my Yoga Pro 2 and it always connected fine without any problems at all but with my Yoga 900 it seems that the mouse will be connected for 5 minutes max and then the Yoga 900 will no longer recognize the mouse. Any help is appreciated, this is very frustrating and I have had been having a lot of problems with Lenovo's devices. Their warranty is great but I am getting tired of so many problems for such expensive machines.

Similar problem here.  Yoga 900 just a couple of months old, and I decided to try a bluetooth mouse.  It connected and worked just fine for a couple of minutes and then stopped.  Windows still says the mouse is paired and connected, but it doesnt work.  Turn bluetooth off, turn mouse off, remove mouse from bluetooth devices, re pair mouse and it works for a couple of minutes and then stops.  Lather, rinse, repeat.  I'm hoping this is a Windows problem and not a Lenovo problem, but if anyone finds a solution I would love to hear it.

The laptop was working just fine, then all of a sudden shut off on its own. I thought the battery might've ran out, so I plugged it in, tried to power it on but did not power on, even after hours of charge. The white light on the side is lit when plugged in, and the keyboard lights up for 1 second when pressing the power button before shutting back down. I've done the hold the power button for 15 seconds, release, hold for another 15 trick, but all that happens are the fans turning on high-mode for 2 seconds then shutting back off. I'm decently tech savvy and build my own computers, but just not laptops. This says to me the motherboard is still intact and isn't having an issue communicating with parts. If I were to guess on the next thing, it'd be the battery failing. I don't hear any beeps or anything, which usually occurs with CPU errors, and with the screen/system not turning on, I can't diagnose if the m.2 ssd is failing (most likely not the issue). I've found this maintenance manual online to replace parts, but unsure if this is a common issue that others are having, and which part should I look into replacing (if any). I don't have an active warranty on this anymore but prefer to not spend a couple of hundred of dollars at a repair shop. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

The screen is just completely black. The backlight on the keyboard is on, the light for my charging port and power button are on, but the screen won?t come on. I can hear the fans and everything going, just not the screen. It used to play sound but now the sound isn?t even working. I?ve tried fully shutting it off and turning back on, but that doesn?t work. Sometimes the screen turns back on and I can use it, but then if I close it the screen turns off for good again.

My Lenovo Yoga is not turning on, no screen lights, key board lighting, or light next to power button is on. But when I plug it in the charging light turns on (see pictures). I have tried re-seating the ram, taking out the ac adapter and holding the power button for 30 seconds to a minute, and took out the battery pin and tried the same but to no avail. It still doesn't work. But, when I hold the power button with the battery plugged in, this fan on the back turns on for a few seconds. There isn't any CMOS battery that I could find, even on the other side of the motherboard. I also used two cables that work with another laptop, and still it wouldn't turn on. The One-Key button does not work either.Picture of Charging light on: Link to IMGPicture of inside: Link to IMGPlease do not ask me for the model number because I really do not know it.

This is my first time posting; i was wondering if anyone would help me with my problem. I have a lenovo 3 2in1 14inch yoga series laptop and i have been very pleased with it up until now. Recently I have not been able to power it on with the power button. I think about 6 months ago, while in it's case I accidently bumped the side of it onto a desk, and every since it became increasingly more difficult to turn it on - I've had to apply more and more pressure to turn the  system on. I also noticed it had been more indented and pliable than originally but I gave no importance to it since I could still turn it on. This brings me to about a week ago when I could no longer to turn it on at all no matter how hard i tried. I wonder, short of short of getting another computer and since I have an an expired warranty, if I can find an easier solution to this problem. All possible solutions appreciated. Thank you!

Opened up the case housing the motherboard to get at the power to see if I could jimmy it a little bit because I couldn't turn it on. A while ago I accidentally bumped the 1yr old notebook in its case against the desk and since then was having difficulty turn it on needing a little more effort since the time I bought it. About a 3 weeks ago it wouldn't turn on no matter how hard I tried. When I posted a question on how to deal with the first answer was to open the casing to see if I could get at the button easier. I did that, after getting the smallest phillips screwdriver but wasn't able to get the button to work. It is somehow loose and not connecting. I also noticed that unscrewing the housing unit holding the motherboard might make it easier but I have not expertise in this and I don't want to mess things up. I wonder if anyone could get a help with this ,maybe a schematic showing me the parts of the housing unit so that I can unscrew it safely and not messing everything up or any other solution - short of taking it to a specialist. Any help very much appreciated. Thanks!

Starting having trouble with my power button last week.1. Would not power on when pressing power button.  When I tried the "novo" button, it does goes through System Recovery menu and I can do a normal startup.2. Today I disconnected the battery.  I plugged the power cable in and was able to successfully use the power button to start up.  Upon shut down, the power button does not work again unless I unplug power cable, then re-plug it in, then power button will work (just once, then have to repeat steps above).3.  If the battery is plugged in, the power button does not work in either battery only mode (battery shows good charge) or when the battery and power cable are connected (hitting 'novo" button - System Recovery menu comes up and I am able to go through Normal StartUp option again, on recovery menu). Not sure what is going on here or how to resolve.

Hello guys, I own a Lenovo Yoga 2 11" for two years and I hadn't met a problem with it since then. The last time I used my laptop (3 days ago) I started it with the power button normally and everything worked fine. But today, I tried to start it clicking the power button but it didn't work, tried many times and nothing. Then I clicked the Novo button and it started with the boot menu. The options "Starts Normally", "Boot Menu", "System Recovery" and etc showed up. So, I turned off my laptop and tried to turn it on again with the power button many times, but all of them failed and now it only starts with the Novo button. I would like to know if it is a confuguration problem or its a fisical problem (my power button just gone), or if Lenovo or Microsoft had dropped a update that change it or something else?. Thank you guys.

Hello there,I have Lenovo Yoga 13 with Windows 8.1 and recently it has started behaving strangely. It was in hibernation for some time, then I opened it and the notification ?Autorotation on/Autorotation off? started winkling and changing all the time in the upper left corner. I had great problems with typing my account password because keyboard did not obey my actions. After some time, I found out that if I pressed ?r? button, command line appeared. The same for the others buttons, just as ?windows? button was pressed. So, I downloaded SharpKeys and turned off left ?windows? button. After that winkling notification about autorotation disappeared, but the ?o? button began always typing itself, as if it was stuck and it continues to behave the same way. Everything goes well if autorotation button on the right side of laptop is pressed and held, but after pressing this button no notification appears just as if it is broken. If it is not pressed and held, ?o? button types itself and also touchpad works bad. I have also turned off ?o? button, but touchpad still works really bad and it is very uncomfortable not to have ?o? button.What I have already tried to deal with this problem:Checking for virusesDeleting recent softwareAutomatic drivers update via Lenovo websiteKeyboard and Synaptics drivers reinstallationChanging autorotation parameters in registryWhen I disconnected keyboard from the laptop, notification ?Autorotation on/Autorotation off?...

Last year I had the laptop sent to Lenovo to replace my screen because my brightness would not change. Since then, the wifi adapter would "disappear*" randomly, though not often, sand I would have to reinstall the intel WLAN drivers to fix it. I though it wasn't going to be a problem. However, in the past two days, the wifi driver would disappear every time I turn on the laptop. Reinstallation did not bring it back and repairs did not work. I had to resort to using an external wireless adapter.The volume down button seems to be stuck down, not physically but more like it was "stickied".*disappear- the drivers would be missing, not disabled.

Since you have to hunt around different Lenovo sites (and other sites) to find out about these softwares, I decided to make a post to get feedback from actual Yoga owners on how these programs interact, what they do, which ones are prerequisite, and which ones are unnecessary. Please don't take this as a blanket answer. This is just what I have found. It might be right - it might be wrong. I'm looking for others to post their experiences as well. Lenovo System Interface Foundation Driver - Necessary prerequisite (missing driver in device manager without it). It allows the Lenovo Utility and Lenovo Companion to work. Lenovo Yoga Mode Control - Necessary if you want to use your yoga to seemlessly change between all the different modes (laptop, tablet, tent, stand). This software is responsible for autorotating and putting Windows into tablet mode. Lenovo Utility - Recommended(?) This one I'm not too sure on. I remember that I was missing some function that I wanted but I can't remember what it was now. Maybe battery cycle count and health? Lenovo Companion - I don't have this one installed and don't think it's necessary but would like someone else to shed some light here.
