Lenovo EDGE 15 - airplane mode f7 hotkey won't work

Hey all!

 

I've been sporting my Lenovo Edge 15 for about two years now. I run Windows 10 and have done so since I first got the computer (I believe when I purchased it I upgraded right away). If you need more specifics I have this PC right here!

 

Airplane mode works if I manually activate it via the wi-fi settings, but the hotkey, F7, won't turn it on/off. 

 

The key doesn't appear to be broken, just the hotkey function it carrys, as using Fn activates the basic F7 function. All my other hotkeys work perfectly.

 

Anyone have the same issue? Know of a fix?

Hello Bookshelph

Thanks for using the Lenovo forums.


Try a static discharge for this, it may help to resolve the issue or at least get rid of any built up static on the motherboard.

(If the battery is internal, please just skip the remove/replace battery steps.)
1. Turn the unit off
2. Remove the battery and the Mains adapter
3. Press and hold the front power button for 30 seconds
4. Replace the battery and the Mains adapter
5. Turn the unit on as normal

Hope this helps, let us know how you get on.

Thank you for the help, but it didn't  seem to work. (I was not able to remove my battery, as it is internal).
