Lenovo Yoga 10 HD+: hand mode / stand mode ... not working without restart

2014-08-23, 12:12 PM

Before updating my Lenovo Yoga 10 HD+ to 4.4.2 I had the problem that screen rotation would sometimes be locked and could only be unlocked by restarting the device. This problem is now gone, but instead the same applies for hand mode / stand mode  / tilt mode. I can switch the mode right after restarting the device. After a while, the mode becomes locked and can no longer be changed (the symbol changes, but it has no effect on the screen).

 

Is anybody else experiencing the same issue?

 

Is there are place to officially report bugs to Lenovo? I couldn't find anything.

 

Best regards

Please correct me if I am wrong, but the word "bug" I understand as a software issue that happeneds on many devices.

The problem that you described I cannot see on my tablet. Not before the update, not after.

Let's wait and see if some users will report this issue to, otherwise I will suggest you to do a reset on your tablet.

I agree, if I am the only one experiencing this, it's probalby not a bug. So, can you really run your tablet for a couple of days without restarting and still successfully switch the mode? By successfull I mean do you see a difference? This can best be tested with the hand move, the display should turn visibly warmer (which it does for me right after a restart, but not some time later).

 

Anyway, I was also asking out of curiosity. Back in the days before KitKat, the device clearly had some bugs, reported by several users (hand mode kept switching to way too much dim, rotation could get locked without restarting, the dolby settings kept getting lost). But I never found any place to report bugs beside this board.

 

Best regards and thanks for the reply

You know, I am not switching the mode. I do not care which mode is it. Just turn the tablet to use it comfortable and that's it. Every tablet, not only Lenovo, will turn the picture when you turn the tablet, so I use it as any ptther tablet too.

Well, because you don't use it, it does not meen you don't have the issue, it doesn't affect you, but you may still have it and it may still be a bug.

 

I use the handmode for its warmer colors, it's very comfortable for reading. For other activities I use one of the other modes. It's not about rotation of the tablet, it's about the color tone. Could you do me a favour and check if handmode changes the color tone for you (without having restarted the tablet recently)? The change should be obvious, not just something that could as well be imagined. If you don't observe anything obvious, you're having the issue, too.

 

Thanks a lot

Yes, I can confirm, this happened with my tablet today, by pressing the power button shortly (ON-SLEEP-ON) this problem dissapeared, I agree, it maybe a bug, but it is not bothering me too much yet...:)

Thx for the hint. Unfortunately, I need to do a full restart in order to get it working again. Would have been too good.

If you mean that tablet lose auto rotate function, mine is the same.
Sometimes I have to restart it for that.

I recently lost autorotation, too. But I meant the ability to switch the predefined colorprofiles (stand mode, hand mode, and one other mode, whereas hand mode has warm colors, and the other two sport cooler colors). You can switch them using the pull down menu - if you CAN switch them, that is the thing ... ;)

Hey spitfire_ch,

I can confirm that it is, in fact, a *bug*. Since I'm having the exact same issue. The color profile just gets stuck on one and cannot be changed again unless yo do a full reboot. The setting change happens but does not actually have any effect on the color profile applied.

And I'm on the latest version of Kit Kat, so, it's no fun. I hope it gets fixed soon or someone comes up with a hack that disables that 'feature' altogether!
