Ideapad 720S-13IKB USB-C / TB not working properly

2019-07-25, 21:03 PM

Hello together,

 

I have a USB-C Display which works perfectly fine with my Thinkpad T470,

but not with the Ideapad 720S. It will charge the Ideapad and mouse+keyboard (which are connected to the display) are working.

 

But the display itself is not working. This problem is identical with both USB-C plugs.

Following the specifications one of the both is supposed to support native DisplayPort or to be Thunderbolt which supports all Alternate Modes.

 

I found similar questions here but without a solution:

But bying multiple adapters and connecting more than one cable is not accaptable for me. My Thinkpad can do it so it looks like a misbehaviour to me.

Is there anything I can try e.g. BIOS update or drivers?

I found a Product Specifications Reference of the 720S and it states out the connector is a Thunderbolt 3 for the 720S-13IKB (Intel model):

https://gzhls.at/blob/ldb/5/d/3/a/1cb461bdc56cbb8321ceaecf465826609af8.pdf

 

That means, either the Thnderbolt implementation is not working properly on my model or the spec sheet is a lie.

Anyone has a working Thunderbolt 3 in his 720S ? Otherwise I should propably contact hardware support.

Well, I have an Ideapad 720s-13IKB with a 7th gen Intel Core i7 processor. The Thunderbolt 3 port in my device won't support charging the laptop, but anything else works flawlessly. I bought a random 30$ USB-C to HDMI adapter from a department store in my town and it works perfectly. So, I think you should be able to passthrough video to your monitor just fine.
