Lenovo Yoga - Black screen when on battery

2013-08-27, 16:40 PM

Hi, Lenovo Support,


My Lenovo Yoga 13 was bought in May this year.


The screen stays black untill I plug in the power adapter.


If on batery only, even counting with up to 90% of power, the screen stays black (important to note that the power button is lightened up, I can also hear some parts of the machine working).


The only way to use the computer is pluging in the power adapter, once I plug it in the screen turn on instantanealy. Otherwise it keeps black.


I've reset the computer pressing the power button for 20 min and the problems is still happening.


It is urgent. It is my only computer.


What do I do?

Dear rparreiras,


Welcome to Lenovo Community,


The Problem happens because in the power plan the brightness is at 0% on battery, and in the Yoga 13 with the brightness is at 0%, the screen goes OFF.


So you need to press on (Windows Button + X) and choose (Power Options) and go to each plan that you have and click on (Change Plan Settings) and make the brightness to 100 % in both battery and plugged in then save changes.


Please try this solution and if the problem still exists, just let me know.
