Re: Yoga 2 pro sound problem

When I called support they said it was a driver issue. But went online and
searched found that by simply pressing the F1 F2 or F3 fixed the problem

Re: Yoga 2 pro sound problem

Well, I'm kinda glad I found out I'm not the onlye one here. Got a brand new Yoga 2 Pro on the 1st of September and it turns out this thing got some quirks up it's sleeve. Not only do I experience the flickering, I lose the mouse from time to times, but I also experience the sound issue.

 

1) It seems that the laptop doesnt recoginze properly that the headphone is ejected thus still trying to put the audio through the 3.5mm

2) When I put the headphones in audio is gone completely, I therefore have to reboot or reset the driver.

 

Dear Lenovo,

€1300 for a laptop and these kinds of problems is just ridiculous. How is this 'fixable'

Re: Yoga 2 pro sound problem

I found that when this happens I can:

 

1. Open the Realtek sound manager (the orange volume icon)

2. Unplug/Plug in the headphones

3. Go to speakers tab and use the mute button here to mute/unmute.

4. Headphones begin to work

 

This worked for me two days in a row. 

 

I just got this laptop a few days ago.

Re: Yoga 2 pro sound problem

jwatts608 thanks, but that didn't work for me. I'm glad you have a fix!

 

indest I have not tried lubircation, hmmm. I'll pick some up this weekend and see if it does anything. Thanks for the regedit tip.I can make a the shortcut on the desktop. Annoying but... better than using a blue tooth speaker all the time.

If it works, I can make a hotkey that toggles it on or off.

Re: Yoga 2 pro sound problem

I also have this problem, but the oposit of OP. I can't get my headphones to work. I think this happens when i close the lid with my headphones plugged in; unpug them and then open the lid. 

Someone please find a fix for this!

Re: Yoga 2 pro sound problem

tried the lubrification: didn't work ; tried all sorts of registry key combinations (including adding the jack detecion entry suggested as it wasn't there in the first place) : didn't work either Smiley Sad

FYI attached are the regedit entries for the laptop ; any suggestion welcome! thxregedit 1.jpgregedit 2.jpg

Re: Yoga 2 pro sound problem

By the way, not sure if Yoga 2 Pro specificly, or just Windows 8.1 bug.

But when I mute the sound, lock my machine, and then log back in my sound is enabled again.

 

For me at work this is quite a pain in the ass since when I log in my email client is going crazy with notifications of new emails.

 

Anyone else experiencing this behaviour?

Re: Yoga 2 pro sound problem

Same problem here. Has anyone opened the laptop? can't the plug simply be replaced? The easiest would be to send it back to Lenovo but I can't afford it as it's my main working laptop...

Re: Yoga 2 pro sound problem

Hello,

 

I'm experiencing the same problem (sound only works with headphone plugged in). No sound from speakers even when headphone is not connected.

 

I did the registry tweak, updated drivers: no luck.

 

I live in Brazil, but bought my Yoga 2 Pro in USA. Guess what? No support here (i need to travel back to USA just to fix this issue), absurd!
