Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro - Screen dead after 14 months !

Deeply frustrated by my almost new Yoga 3 Pro.

LCD screen completely dead after only 14 months of use.  Computer still works through an external display.

Repairs would be $700.

No / 0 / nada help from Lenovo.   

Recurrent problem as seen on forums.

DON'T BUY THIS COMPUTER.

Hi there, Sambar -


Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.

 

  1. Unplug AC adapter (remove from notebook).
  2. Remove main battery
  3. Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds (power drain)
  4. Replace main battery
  5. Replace AC adapter

Could you also check that the Function key F12 to make sure that the Display brightness isn’t at the lowest level?

 

Update us how it goes.

 

 

 

Regards,

Hi there,

 

thanks for helping.

However, all these have been tried and none has given results.

Computer sent to Lenovo's registered repair shop (Staples) for diagnostic: LCD dead.

 

The only way to work with the computer now is with an external display (or pay $700 in repairs).

Great to have one of the lightest (and most expensive) computers on the market when you need to carry on your external display...

 

Wish Lenovo could be a good corporate citizen and take responsibility, but ya, my warranty is over for 4 months.
