Re: x220t autorotate screen not working

In the beginning I noticed this as well, and it was most pronounced when I would hibernate from tablet mode, and wake it in laptop mode. The problem has not happened recently after getting a few updates for the tablet. I woudl suggest making sure you have all of the most current drivers and software.

 

Also do you have auto rotate enabled (accelerometer based, not swivel based)?

I've noticed the same problem.  I get an error message saying that it cannot go to the secondary because the WAN is active.

I have the same problem.  My autorotation has died completely.  Even rotating to portrait after going to tablet mode has stopped working.  I too, have all of the latest updates and boxes checked.  Is my accelerometer fried?

Is the Active Protection System (APS) still installed and active?

 

Do the tablet - keys work, if you are in "Tablet-mode"? - If not do the following test:

  • Turn to tablet-mode
  • press the key to turn the display content by 90° one time
  • turn the display to laptop-mode

Does the display content turn by 90° then? If yes, it looks like a damage of the magnetic sensor in the display cover for the tablet-mode or the display cable has a damage.

Go to Control panel. Set the display to Large icons. Click Lenovo Tablet Utility. A window like the following one will open:

There you can activate ActiveRotate.

Re: x220t autorotate screen not working

hi

 

do you have the part number of the "magnetic sensor",

 

regarding the dispaly cable, do you think it is damage just becuase of rotation? logic should affect the screen quality as well?
