Yoga 2 13inch space bar issues

2014-08-08, 1:39 AM

my new yoga 2 13'' seems to be having issues with the space bar when it tap it on the right side. it is not responsive so i end up with wordsruntogether.

 

I see this was an issue on the original yoga's, is there a fix for the yoga 2?

Mines working on both sides (thankfully) so I guess you could raise a claim for service.

At first I thought the problem was just that the spacebar is oddly shifted to the left and once I got used to that the problem would go away.   But now I think my spacebar has a problem.

 

Not sure if this is relevant, but I'm using a Canadian keyboard.

I have the sameexactproblemasyoudo.

 

It is annoying.  Haven't even had it two weeks.  Needless to say, it is going back to Fry's.  It was a refurbished unit.  But it is useless to me as I sit there any have to relearn to type with my left thumb as the space bar where my right thumb hits doesn't work.

 

How could they have messed that up?

 

I am taking it back to Fry's tomorrow.

How does the Canadian keyboard differ from the U.S. keyboard?  Is it just that the function labels are bilingual, English and French? Because that's what my keyboard looks like, but I'm in the U.S.  Maybe that's why mine was discounted in the Lenovo Outlet, even though the condition was "new".

 

As a Canadian ExPat I'm used to seeing bilingual labels on everything so I just took the keyboard in stride, but I do find it a little annoying. I still have to look a little harder to find those rarely used keys because of the bilingual clutter in the descriptions.

I have had my Yoga serviced for the space bar issue and they replaced the keyboard.

 

The keyboard is a strong point of the Lenovo products: just enough travel en backlit.

I assume that replacing the keyboard fixed the problem? I'd hate having to return the machine and getting an equally bad replacement keyboard.

I got mine fixed too. Took almost three weeks (despite the fact that apparently Lenovo has a local repair center here in The Netherlands), but it's great being able to type separate words. The new keyboard has no space bar issues at all, so this is clearly a defect that affects some Yoga 2's.
